• Fatman 2020

    From Arelor@VERT/PALANT to All on Tuesday, December 08, 2020 17:07:33
    HELLO!

    I think it fits this time of the year. I have recently watched Fatman, a film in which
    a spoiled kid who does not get the Christmas present he wants hires a mercenary to
    hunt down Santa.

    It is not going to win any prizes, but the concept behind the film was interesting.
    Specially because Santa happens to be an army contractor whose elves make weapons
    while not in Christmas campaign.

    The concept behind the film was so stupid it worked. It felt a lot like those action
    films in the 80s which had paper-thin plots yet managed to keep you entertained.

    I found it really entertaining. Right up with Expendables 2 or Gremlins
    2. Just mindless, violent fun.

    I liked the "Little Shit". It reminded me of Artemis Fowl. In fact I'd be surprised if he wasn't based on that character.

    For those who don't know, Artemis Fowl is a 10-something prodigy kid who happens to be a millionaire criminal mastermind, best known for his plans to coherce magic creatures into doing her bidding. His main problem is that magical creatures, such as elves and gnomes et all, have evolved into the 21st century and have laser weapons and combat armor and other crazy stuff, and don't like being manipulated.
