Very Disappointing
23 December 2014 | by (Planet Earth) – See all my reviews

Despite having read some of the below par reviews of Get Santa I decided to watch this anyway but sadly the reviewers were right. This movie hits very wrong notes with the spirit and nature of the man that is Santa Claus and the overall feeling of this movie is rather unsavoury and not particularly child friendly in some of it's content.For the first hour of the movie it was rather a bleak gritty affair and even when the CGI kicked in and the 'magic' happened it was very underwhelming and so out of place with the vibe of the film so far. I kept wondering when the tone would become more upbeat instead of this grey, negative affair. Imagine Father Christmas landing in Albert Square of Eastenders and you will get an idea of the general downtrodden nature of the film. The ending in particular annoyed me for it's suddenness with so many loose ends just hanging.Out of all the fantasy Christmas movies I've seen this is by far the most unappealing one to date. Jim Broadbent plays a good Santa but sadly he is lost in this ill conceived movie. It fails primarily as a magical Christmas movie but also as a family movie. A waste of some talented actors and a missed opportunity for potentially a great Christmas movie. The reviewer stating this movie as "Funny and moving in equal measure" were either part of the production company or someone who watched a completely different film. "Hilariously funny" really, when? You see, Elf was a funny movie but comparing this to Elf is like comparing under 9's Sunday soccer to the Premier League.
