Violent Night (2022)

Tommy Wirkola directs David Harbour, John Leguizamo and Beverly D’Angelo in this action comedy where a drunk but tough Santa protects a wealthy family who have been taken hostage by mercenaries wanting their safe.

One joke meme movie that idles in the middle. Tonally off. Feels like a Christmas kids film with extreme violence rewritten hastily when someone watched a season of Succession. Populated entirely by unlikeable characters, and in a flick like this you do need someone, anyone to root for. Won’t become a festive perennial.
