(2022) (David Harbour, John Leguizamo) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action: A disillusioned Santa must contend with armed mercenaries who've taken a girl and her family hostage to steal $300 million.
It's been a rough past few years for Santa Claus (DAVID HARBOUR) who's grown disillusioned with the holiday, especially delivering gifts to ungrateful, bratty kids. After boozing it up to get through Christmas Eve, he sets out for his next location, the palatial estate of Gertrude Lightstone (BEVERLY D'ANGELO) whose granddaughter, Trudy (LEAH BRADY), has just one Christmas wish. And that's for her parents, Jason (ALEX HASSELL) and Linda (ALEXIS LOUDER), to reconcile their differences and get back together.
Joining them at Gertrude's mansion is Jason's sister, Alva (EDI PATTERSON), who's hoping to displace him in their future inheritance line, along with her egotistical actor husband, Morgan (CAM GIGANDET), and their teenage son, Bert (ALEXANDER ELLIOT). The unexpected guest for the evening is Scrooge (JOHN LEGUIZAMO) who's arrived with his team of highly trained mercenaries whose goal is to find and steal Gertrude's ill-begotten stash of $300 million.
Santa manages to fend off one of those mercenaries and then goes to escape. But when he lays eyes on Trudy, he has a change of heart and decides to use his long-buried fighting skills to save her and her extended family by dispatching all the naughty bad guys.
