Quotes

Chris: I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've lost my influence. Maybe it's time I retired the coat.
Ruth: You still have it...
Chris: Some kids with a deer rifle put two holes in the sleigh and one in me! All I have is a loathing for a world that's forgotten me.

This is awesome
21 November 2020 | by klaraephilesSee all my reviews

I can't believe this movie exists. It's high production, actors are good. Many may say the story is stupid and too straight forwards...but this is a movie, that could've been made in the 80's. People who grew up with movies which don't take themself too serious like "Commando" for example really miss such movies. And i'am not talking about cheaply made C-movies. In the 80's there was an audience for this kind of movies and that's why they were highly quality produced. It's about the fun. And i had fun watching this movie. It's just this kind of flick you tell your friends about "Hey have you seen this crazy movie where Mel Gibson as Santa Clause saves christmas with guns?" And of course they answer with no. And then you tell them: "Well, buckle up, kiddo. You're in for a good time, get the whiskey!".

Nothing more to add. We need more films like that,
