A re-edit could make this something very special

This story was a gem an idea but the actor who plays Daniel Baldwin's boss was terrible and his performance alone sinks this little film.

In this movie Don Collier (Daniel Baldwin) has a wonderful life and family, but no time to enjoy either one. His impossible boss even has him collecting signatures for huge projects the day before Christmas, but as he goes to the office, it seems that every signer is a ghost from his past, and he soon begins to wonder if this is coincidence… or heavenly intervention.

The final scene at a graveyard goes on way to long. Each character talks too much. The film would of been better served if each "talking head" speech was cut in 1/2 or they enter-cut all of them. 10 seconds of one then 10 seconds of another and so fourth.

What was nice was the fact that "The Protagonist" wasn't a jerk who becomes nice. He is a man that is doing what he thinks is best.

There is one scene I found a little too violent so if you have children I would not allow them too watch this because it is a little too graphic.

This film would of been better served if the director had a better editor. They could of had something. Maybe they will re-edit this?
