Would Bible-Study AgainI was going to read from the New Testament because I heard in one of the other reviews that it was the only Christmas story there is. That would really stink because the kid dies in the end of every version I've read (Sorry, spoilers. But the Bible is a couple thousand years old now so I think it's fair game) and the epilogue is just plain disturbing. Not a book for little kids. I soon realized however, that I was actually having fun. Because I was watching this movie, rather than trying and failing to hype up the Nativity story. Joking aside, this is a great movie. Definitely not an "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" or something of that class. This one is genuinely heartwarming. Sure, violence may be the curb appeal, obviously. I mean, it's in the title, "Violent Night," but it's not excessive. It's an emotional Action/Comedy, not an ultraviolent slasher. It's got a lot of strong points that pretentious sophisticates like me can respect, but the strongest element here is the sentimentality. Gratifying as it is to see Santa unleash his dark Norse past to do good against evil, I feel it the most when the little girl starts talking to Santa. It was so sweet that I cried. And I can take sweet. You should have seen the contents of my Christmas stocking this year. It's like my mom raided the gummy section of a gas station and crammed it all in a sock with some obligatory peppermints just to get me to come out of solitude and visit family for the weekend. But I digress. This is a fantastic excuse for a Christmas movie that adults can watch with their children, assuming the children are also adults. That last part is important. You don't want to have one of those moments like the one where you realize "Gremlins" is *definitely* not for kids and you have to leave the theater. 5/5 stars. I really enjoyed my Bible study..Score: 5/5
That was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen in theater.This mangled, incoherent attempt at an action comedy made a common mistake. The filmmakers made the assumption that if they made the movie intentionally bad, that would make a good camp movie. They were wrong. Do not waste your time. I would rather be bunched in the no-no parts than rewatch this..Score: 1/5
It’s like if Die Hard wasn’t so Christmas-ambiguous…I loved this violent, hilarious, heartwarming Christmas tale. It’s an inventively bloody break from the typical mushy holiday films, but still delivers a family-friendly message of love and believing in the impossible. This has been added to our annual rotation of holiday movies!.Score: 5/5

New Favourite Christmas MovieHonestly, this movie is fantastic. It’s a new spin on the holidays, even having some tongue in cheek moments with Home Alone and such. However, this is not a 14A movie, and I’m surprised it keeps getting rated as such on so many different sites. Regardless, new favourite Christmas movie, easily..Score: 5/5
