one of the better comics adapted to movies
6 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was great. It had the Lobo character done perfectly. This short movie is based on the comic book of the same name, basically, the Easter Bunny has had enough with Santa Claus and Christmas, so he hires Lobo to kill Santa Claus. This movie would've gotten a 10/10 except for 2 things. first of all, it's too short. The movie is only 13 minutes long. I know it's not the directors fault, I just wish the comic was a whole lot longer so the movie would be a whole lot longer. Second, there's some rap-rock crap played at the end and during the credits of the movie. other than those nit-pickings, this movie shows how comics adapted to movies should be done.
