GET SANTA (2014 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Get Santa does not measure up to Tim Allen’s The Santa Claus or Chevy Chase’s National Lampoon’s: Christmas Vacation. It seems to lack a certain Christmas spirit that the latter two movies were able to capture. Despite that, it is a good Christmas story for everyone to watch. Director Christopher Smith does a good job portraying the script’s intent.

Storyline

Santa’s sleigh crashes and reindeer are loose in London.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Christopher Smith for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Andrew Boswell, Will Clarke, Carlo Dusi, Hugo Heppell, Andy Mayson, Norman Merry, Ridley Scott, Natascha Wharton, and Fredrik Zander for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Santa Claus (Jim Broadbent), Steve (Rafe Spell), Tom (Kit Connor), PC Finkerton (Ewen Bremner), Sally (Warwick Davis), Barber (Stephen Graham), Ruth (Joanna Scanlan), Alison (Jodie Whittaker), and Knuckles (Nonso Anozie).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. While the story seems a little bland, like we’ve seen this before, there never seems to be enough holiday movies to watch. This is not a bad watch; children will enjoy the concept of Santa in jail.
