    This movie was amazing! I loved the idea and premise of it. Mel always delivers on these 80's shoot-em-up movies. Good fun and exactly what it should be as a terrible-great movie.

    As usual the critic's are beyond off base. This movie was outstanding! Santa starts the movie out like most, lost, beaten down in a world that has very much lost its way and strayed from love, kindness, and good will towards man. Its through the love of his wife and the devotion of his workers that Santa finds his faith again. All the characters were 3 dimensional, and they mattered. I've watched in 3 times already in 2 days and can tell you I got choked up more then once every time. This will take its place as a yearly Christmas movie right along with Die Hard, Elf, and Klaus. Do yourself a favor and see it in whatever way you can.

    Great movie, entertaining and keeps you watching. Nice twist on Santa and dealing with modern day society. Well done by Nelms brothers and crew.

    It was a new take on an old story. It lacked development to pull the watcher into the story.

    The reviewers have it all wrong. This is a bonkers movie. So bonkers it's brilliant. Now we just need a ‘Seasonal Cinematic Universe' with the Easter Bunny, etc.

    "$POILER$.....This Film Was Great!! Mel Gibson Hits it out of the park again w/ a very decent & imaginative Flick, which is more than can be said for the Cookie-Cutter, Assembly Line style Dross* Hollywood puts out on a regular basis. [B++] * Definition: 1) Waste matter; refuse. 2) Metallurgy. a waste product taken off molten metal during smelting, essentially Metallic in character. 3) [British]. Coal of little value.

    I must say the violence and cold-blooded murder was truly shocking, having not seen the trailer. Certainly not what you'd expect in a Christmas movie, other than Die Hard of course. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. I hope they make a sequel and delve deeper into this almost semi-realistic version of a modern day Santa trying to makes ends meets.

    'Fatman' is a substandard action thriller that spoils its deliciously bizarre premise with wobbly execution.

    An entertaining dark comedy. Enjoyed something different. A unique twist on Santa Clause, with great characters. Gibson is good
