Thoughts

Yea, I didn’t enjoy this. I was quite looking forward to a Christmas movie that wasn’t all festive and joy and light. Die Hard, anyone? But I didn’t know what was going on, the tone of it was all over the place, and I felt like it was going to take a long time to get going so… other Christmas movies to watch, thanks. Mel Gibson looked like he was doing a good job, though.
