Good but missing the main reason of gift giving
November 10, 2014
Don't get me wrong the movie itself was good, but it did leave out one of the biggest reasons Saint Nick started giving out presents, and that was because he wanted to spread the Good News. And that bums me out that they left it out. It also left out the how the stockings, well boots, are tied into Santa Clause. This movie was made in Finland, so there was a voice over done in English and the mouths do not match the words, but its not unbearably off. Overall the acting was, the movie message was good, so if you're just looking for another movie about Santa Clause I would recommend it but if you're looking the most important part of Santa Clause, Jesus, then this is not the movie for you.
This is a good movie about overcoming hardship and still maintaining a good heart. It is not a Christian movie nor does it tell the story of Christ. However, it is very true to spirit of the Finnish people. They tend to be very responsible, honest and will endure hardship with dignity. Anyway they used to be this way. Maybe comes from having to endure the cold and the dark winters. You learn to make the best out of what you have.
If I could rate this any lower than poor, I would! I watched the whole thing in false hope that it would get better. It DOESN'T!!! It is so slow moving and deeply somber. Not encouraging or uplifting unless you count the times I blinked from boredom or drowsiness...
DO NOT BUY THIS. I wish I could get my money back.
