Jimmy Scalzetti: For those of you who just fell of the broccoli boat, Chicago Place is the most exclusive shopping mall in the Chicago area. The Christmas Rush is their busiest and most profitable season. At the end of each business day, fifty-seven retailers deposit their cash receipts in the basement vault. Once a week, a CST armored car drives that money to the Northern Trust Bank. The last pickup before Christmas, and the biggest, is scheduled for the evening of December twenty-fourth. On ...

A better than average 'Die Hard' rip off!
1 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie is a made for TV movie and as such some of these come off really good and others not so. Christmas Rush is not so but then again it is not so bad. Okay it is an obvious 'Die Hard' rip off but the interesting twist is the robbers motive. I will not give it away but I think this gave the film an emotional core that you will never get in all the other 'Die Hard' rip offs or die hard itself. I personally thought that at the end of Die hard was a bit too cheesy whereas the personal motive for the robber in this movie is quite understandable and suddenly he is not so much of a bad guy. I have always liked Dean Cain and I am happy that he has managed to keep in work after his role in Superman, many actors disappear without a trace after starring in a long running TV program. Maybe like Bruce Willis he will get a role that will launch him on the world stage. Watching Christmas Rush is easy on the eye and brain cells and has a good moral message while the demise of the lead robber will make you think.If I came across this film on DVD at a reasonable price I would certainly add it to my collection.
