‘Get Santa’ is a British Christmas comedy from 2014 starring Jim Broadbent, Rafe Spall, Kit Connor, and Wawrick Davis. I stumbled across this one while scrolling through Netflix. Only reason why I chose it was because of Wawrick Davis, he’s a legend in his own right. He’s the Leprechaun in the horror movie series, and has also stared in the Harry Potters and Star Wars franchises. I’ll watch his work anytime I get the chance.
Almost all Christmas movies are the same when boiled down, ‘Elf’, ‘The Santa Clause’, ‘The Christmas Chronicles’, and ‘Get Santa’. Santa gets in a bind, his slay crashes, grown ups don’t believe, Santa winds up in jail, and a kid who believes must save Christmas before it’s too late. All are essentially the same plot, just a different take on it. ‘Get Santa’ holds its own with all them. Acting is good, the movie flows well, the characters are lovable, it’s a Christmas classic in my book. I’ve decided to also start rating the movies on a scale 1-10 to give the readers a better idea how it stacks up. With all being said, ‘Get Santa’ is a 7/10. If you haven’t seen it, it is definitely worth watching this holiday season.
