BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 300 HOLIDAY FILMS & SPECIALS. I HAVE NO AGENDA.
This film was a interesting idea but the attempt is a misfire. It does have a few moments that work but as a whole the film is as good as a fruit cake.
The writer/director of this film should of had someone else do a polish of the screenplay. This was also a case where it looks like he hired "friends" and his "Friends Let Him Down". In other words the casting was bad.
Before I get to that let me tell you what the story is. It has been a year since Scrooge had his visits from the ghost. Now a changed man his old business partner sends Scrooge into the future to save Tim Cratchit the VI. He is now as angry as Scrooge was.
There is clever moments where the classic lines from "A Christmas Carol" are incorporated here. However that only echos the problems with this film.
Now the biggest problem with this film is the casting of Matt Koester. HE is terrible in the part. He over does everything. Had this been a stage performance then he would of been fine but in film "Less is more".
There is other things that do not work but there is far to many to list. David Ruprecht however does save this film from being a total waist of time!
I would like to stress that when a film starts throwing off "Bible Versus" it becomes hard to enjoy the film. There is many people out there that find this insulting. I know this is a Christmas Theme movie and Christmas is about the birth of Christ but, "A Christmas Carol" is about redemption not about someones faith. Its about living and appreciating life.
