Tumman veden päällä brings nothing new to the genre and contains the same actors and actresses as always in Finnish movies. I'm sorry, but it really is Super boring to watch. Even the reality-TV is more interesting to watch.
Then also something is wrong with the dialogue-mix. Volume of the dialogue is jumping around from high to low, and there's no point. It' is annoying.
Something good also: Sam Edelmann does fine job as the role of the father, and the little boy's haircut is insane. Like Jim Carrey's in Dumb and Dumber (1993). Santa Clause is representing as authentic as it were in Finland at 1970's, when it looked like a horror character. Thank god the Coca Cola Company made the red and lovely fat dude to us.
Now really is the time to put this Finnish movie genre to hold for at least ten years.
