Not the 1951 Classic
27 October 2019 | by michaelarmerSee all my reviews

Despite the high-ish rating on here, I do not rate it.

The Alastair Sim - Scrooge! (1951) classic, the 1935 Scrooge, A Christmas Carol (1938), the Bill Murray - Scrooged (1988), the Patrick Stewart TV Movie - A Christmas Carol (1999) (my personal favourite) and the Jim Carrey animated version from 2009 are all better, much better in some instances, usually modern versions even try to be like the 1951 version since that is the benchmark.

The story line is excellent of course, but the screenplay on this one has rather spoilt it and the acting although not too bad, does not make up for the other shortcomings, I don't know whether this was someones idea to try to make a good version of the classic story or just an attempt to jump on the band wagon to make some quick bucks, but from a viewers point of view, why watch this version when you have several much better films of the same story.
