The concept of a sequel to "A Christmas Carol" was questionable to begin with. Then add time travel we open up a huge can of worms. That is what this is "A can worms".
The once mean and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge was forever changed by his ghostly Christmas Eve encounter. Now one year later, Scrooge receives another posthumous visit from his old business partner. It seems Jacob Marley is not yet finished with Mister Scrooge! Sent on a journey 170 years into the future, Scrooge encounters a world even colder and greedier than his own, a world that includes a young cutthroat businessman named Timothy Cratchit VI. Will Scrooge be able to turn Cratchit from his selfish ways and teach him the true meaning of Christmas?
Now this film isn't terrible but it makes zero sense. Any film that deals with time travel is always tricky. What I liked about this film was that dialog that we heard in the countless films and books is once again repeated here by different people.
The blessing this film has is they have a great actor that played Scrooge. David Ruprecht is great. He plays all the layers of Scrooge that we expect but also shows a few new things that I am sure that other actors in the future will copy.
Now if I were to make a "Sequel" to the classic tale I would have had the Cratchit Children track down Scrooge's long lost love and have them reunited on Christmas Eve. That would of been a better to approach a sequel. But then again who can compete with "Charles Dickens".
