Absolutely wonderful! I would give this a 20 out of 10 if I could. It was refreshing to see a new Christmas film with emphasis on the story and characters. (I know I always waffle on about that, but it is important. It's what makes a film tick for me.) There were moments that could be quite hard to watch, especially for anyone who's lost someone close due to death. However, don't let that put you off, because the overall film is a feel-good, uplifting family movie with a true Christmas spirit throughout. About time they made such a wonderful film like this. Of course, this film is also guaranteed a 10 from me, simply because they have not one - but TWO Christmas songs recorded by Elvis Presley. It didn't surprise me to learn that Santa is played by Kurt Russell, who not only starred as Elvis in a 1979 biopic, but he also starred WITH the great man himself as the shin-kicking boy in "It Happened At The World's Fair."

This modern Christmas take on Santa is a lot of fun, with a great turn from Kurt Russell as Santa himself. Worth a watch, especially if you're running low on Christmas spirit (and no, I don't mean the alcoholic kind).

The idea is innovative and the graphics are excellent! The only drawback is the performances of the kids which are not to the best. However, since this is only noticeable by adults, children will love the movie and laugh with their hearts! Personally, as an adult, I had a really good time watching it!

Decent watch at best, probably won't watch again, and can't recommend.

Perhaps it's just that I don't like Kurt Russell and him injecting all his "Russellness" into Santa Claus ruins the magic of the character for me, but I really feel this portrayal of Santa Claus is lacking and borderline inapp More

Fun film, perfectly suitable for the festive period.

I do enjoy Kurt Russell, I like most of the films that I've seen him in and this is another one to add to the list. He's great in the lead role, very much carrying the film. The other actors could've been better cast, but are still passable in More

Pretty standard fare mostly. Dad died, son going off the rails, daughter still believes, let’s haul Santa in to help. (Which he does by letting them help him.) I found myself poking holes in the plot, which is a silly thing to do anyway in a Christmas fantasy film, such as If Santa can make presen More

Might be good, not sure.

This is one of those films that punish you for having bought an HDR TV. I'm not sure what's going on here, because someone decided to turn down the brightness to 20%.

It's possible there's a good movie here, and I do love Kurt Russell, but unfortunately I was unable t More
