Good family fun...
4 December 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I must say that "Elf-Man" was actually twice of a surprise for me.

First of all, I hadn't expected the movie to actually be as good as it was. It was honestly a wholesome and great family movie for the Christmas time, much in the likes of "Home Alone".

Secondly, and most importantly for me, was that Jeffrey Combs was in it. I hadn't picked up on that before I was watched the names billed in the intro of the movie. So that was a nice surprise, and somewhat interesting to see him in this kind of movie, and not only in the usual horror movies that he is mostly known for. Always great to see an actor (or actress) diversify and spread out into other genres.

The story in "Elf-Man" is about a family whose Christmas is not looking all too bright, when further tragedy strikes as the father (played by Mackenzie Astin) is kidnapped by three criminals (played by Jeffrey Combs, Dave Coyne and Larry Nichols) who wants to steal the chip that produces electricity that he produced. His children, Kasey (played by Carly Robell) and Ryan (played by Blake Kaiser) is looked after by their grandmother (played by Marty Terry) when Kasey makes a wish upon an old elf figurine. As Christmas is the time of miracles, her wish comes true, and an elf (played by Jason 'Wee Man' Acuña) appears to help the family restore the Yule tide peace.

For a family movie, then "Elf-Man" is quite entertaining, especially if you were amongst the ones who enjoyed the "Home Alone" movies. There is laughter, love, hope, magic and 'danger' all to be had in this movie (of course, on a level where kids can enjoy it). And it is also a movie that tells the story of the value of family, love and the special time of the Christmas time.

So for a family with children, then "Elf-Man" does have potential to become a returning movie on the watch list during the Christmas time.
