    Die Hard and Home Alone had a baby , it's called Violent Night
    Action packed gory comedy for the adults that didn't lost their sense of humor!

    Add a dose of christmas magic fairy dust and voilà!

    A new cult film is born.

    Of course that some complain about this or that but at the end of it's a matter of taste.

    Definitely not a family Christmas movie, nothing to do with the Griswold's Christmas Vacation but Alone cult scenes with a twist, very much like taking a Disney cartoon and turn it into Happy Tree Friends.

    The only downside on my humble opinion is that the all the secondary characters could have been much better being played by different actors.

    Die Hard 2, but more fun
    It's pretty much Die Hard 2 but with more comedy.

    It was super cheesy at times, but this Christmas film had a lot more than your usual feel good vibes.

    Gore, comedy, love, and betrayal, it had it all. I wouldn't say it was Oscar winning by any means, but it certainly did pass some time without me thinking, "hmmm shall I go to bed?" Don't watch it with kids, because there is a fair bit of violence in it, hence the title.

    The lead was played very well, and if you like Hopper in Stranger Things? Then you'll love Santa in this, he's jolly but also deadly and he certainly doesn't do anything by halves when it comes to dishing out some best downs.
