    What to you get when you combine Bad Santa, Home Alone, Die Hard, Die Hard II, and Greedy?
    I have to admit that there were "Laugh ot loud" moments, and touching moments. Violent Night is the story of a little girl who all she really wants for Christmas is to have her parents get back together again. Her father is a member of a one percent of the one percent family. In order to keep up appearances he convinces his estranged wife to come to the family mansion to spend Christmas. There waiting is the family matriarch wonderfully played by Beverly D'Angelo, alcholic sister played by. Edi Patterson with her boy toy and her Hunter Biden in the making played by. Alexander Elliot. But the show stopper Scrooge played masterfully by. John Leguizamo who has the ability to play such vasy characters as "Bennie Blanco" in Carlito's Way, to the chop shop owner in John Wick and John Wick 2.

    You have a similar plot as n Die Hard and Die Hard II to the slapstick of Home Alone to Bad Santa, the family intrigue of Greedy. David Harbour protrayal of a burned out Santa is understated. Of course you have the plot twist as in Die HardII. I imagine there might be a sequel in the mix.

    A tale that is unexpected
    I have to say, i saw this movie late, as i had no idea how amazing it was going to be. The movie by far was a great way to kick out 2022 with a bang. Theres been a ton of Christmas movies, but i dont think there's nearly as many as movies like this one. We have bad santa and some others, but this is completely different. With a great producer behind the lens, David Leitch, of course the movie was going to be fantastic. It takes on the version of santa that we wouldnt think to see, and make him absolutely badass. This is definitely a top 20 movie for 2022 and a great Christmas movie at that. We need more like this!
