What is this all about? I know that Billy Bob Thornton’s portrayal of a thief and con man who dupes a strange kid into believing that he’s Santa Claus in order to get free ride, is good, but the tone of the film is difficult for me to accept. I simply don’t like it. It’s dark, grimy and trashy, with damaged characters smearing the festive period with its gunge.
The performances are good, the story is twisted but I just don’t like the characters, what they do or what they stand for. Maybe it deserves more that just 3/10 but I don’t want to give it any more and in many ways, I’m struggling to give it that!
