"In the frozen beauty of Finland, local reindeer herders race against the clock to capture an ancient evil: Santa Claus. A single dad and his son are caught up in the chaos as scientists dig for artifacts. What they find endangers the entire village."
Those damn Russians went and screwed over the Finish again. Digging up the long (and rightfully) entombed Santa Clause and threatening to unleash his long list of horrors on all the bad children he can get his hands on, which just happens to be all of them. Can they out maneuver the horde of elderly, naked "elves" and destroy Santa before it's too late?!
And I have to add, this movie is really well made. It has the production value of a major studio film and a really good cast. The lead actor is only about 9 years old and you couldn't want a more likable main character. It really harkens back to those eighties movies with coarse little boys (The Goonies, ect.). Except they live on the Finish Tundra and their dads seem to think raiding Russian scientific encampments (armed) and holding mortally injured, exposed old men wrapped in a tarp for ransom isn't a terribly serious moral transgression. I actually really enjoyed this movie, but as the movie goes on the unbelievable bits mount and the effect is absolutely accumulative. In the last 15-20 minutes I went from "Okay, that's a little bit out there." to "WHHHAAAAATTT?!?!?" I'm absolutely watching this film again. Loved it.
