Awful X1000
9 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

I never thought a movie could be as bad as Battlefield Earth, until this was released.The movie starts of literally with no plot and from there it is just Kirk and his "brother" Christian talking in a car. Kirk, you have not saved Christmas, you have ruined it just like you did film. What you tried to do is make everyone follow what you think Christmas is all about. Literally, this man cherry picks the Bible and creates his own version of the story. You know it amazes me how Kirk finds a"good way" to say "materialism is right". How does he go from making such a great movie like "Fireproof" to this???? I am sorry as a Christian, but it was just so bad. Again, Please if you know what's good for you, don't watch this movie, it is that bad.
