I think is a great movie minus one huge think or mistake is a better word for it. The plot and the scrip or writing and everything was great and again except for one huge mistake which is a huge big deal. There is an alcoholic drunk cop who is drinking on the job not only at the sheriffs office but also while he is out on patrol in his cruiser drinking and driving and making fun of people and making assumptions about people. He beats guy in front of another deputy who seems like a good guy at first when he lets the innocent guy go but then when things hit the fan he backs up the alcoholic <more>
drunk cop when he knows the truth. Then the alcoholic cop is shooting at the unarmed guy intent on killing him & even blindly shoots into the store where there are other innocents including a child. The huge big deal of a mistake is in the end there was never a mention of the alcoholic drunk cop being at fault for everything that happened & with the way things are in the U.S. now days & I am a U.S. MARINE they should have made sure it was mentioned in the news there at the end or in court or somewhere at the end mentioned how the alcoholic drunk cop even though he was dead was responsible for everything that happened that it was all his fault & even though he was dead in the end & this way he was held accountable for his wrongful inappropriate actions as a law enforcement officer.
One of the best Christmas movies I've ever seen.Its not perfect that's for sure , but that was what was perfect about it , everything was flawed , just like real situations and real people.All the actors were top notch without a hint of boredom in any scene and D'Onofrio knocked it out of the park as the boozy deputy trying to make good , you know how you watch a movie and pick out the main characters , in this film I had the feeling there were no main characters , just well jelled entertainment. This is not your ordinary cookie cutter Christmas movie fare...Don't try and <more>
This is my first review, mainly to defend this movie. I've used IMDb for years to filter movies based on user reviews, but more importantly, critic reviews. My favourite movies are often those that receive average user reviews, but positive critic reviews; when the mainstream critics finally chime in, this movie will be no exception.It's always interesting to me when a movie receives mainly very high ratings and very low ratings. If you're a fan of Dark Comedy and can appreciate a movie that makes you think...this one is for you!
Ironically the most beautifully shot Christmas Movie I've ever seen (by isiah-46018)
El Camino directed by David E. Talbert. This movie has been the most unique Black-Comedy Christmas Movie I have ever seen, it has the happy touchy feeling as the classic "It's A Wonderful Life" and the dark gritty humor as "Bad Santa." It's a movie that will offend and a movie that will make those with weaker hearts sad and those with hyper-logical thought process angry. But what makes this movie so watchable in my view, is how possible this scenario is. Hostage situations are the most tense crime thrillers in the genre. This one tells the story of a man in the <more>
wrong place at the wrong time and how a simple altercation exaggerated into a catastrophe. By the end of the movie, I was so stunned by the beautiful scene elements. The intensity, the calm music, the hopelessness. It is a movie that is specifically understood by certain people, not everyone will see eye to eye on the quality of this film. It has the same classic potential as "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation." Which was a comedy that was not perfectly understood by every viewer, it has a unique confusion. This movie has that same Classical Christmas Confusion
A weird movie that is a joy to watch (by danielle-backus)
I noticed that most of the negative reviews for this movie simply state "this movie isn't defineable, therefore I don't like it." It's not exactly a comedy, it's not exactly a tragedy, it doesn't really make sense, but I sure loved watching it! I don't understand the negativity. I especially enjoyed the 12 days of Christmas song during the end credits. If you want to watch something really off-beat, this is the movie for you!
Pretty darn good, but not for everyone (by Mobius2000)
**WARNINGS**First warning: If this were a rated film, it would be "R", not only for the multiple F-bombs, but the subject matter and plot.Second warning: This ain't Hallmark. There are some funny moments, but overall, this is pretty dark. It's not a typical "Christmas" movie. In fact, there isn't a super strong connection to Christmas.That said, I enjoyed it a lot. Tim Allen is definitely playing against type. I believe it's hard to play "stupid" convincingly, but Dax Shepard pulls it off. Michelle Mylett looks very familiar, but upon checking <more>
IMDb, it's doubtful I've seen her before. I predict we'll see a lot more of her. The rest of the star-studded cast turn in an excellent ensemble performance. It's a bit predictable in parts, but still a very enjoyable movie. And in the end, you really are in the Christmas spirit.
American cinema doesn't do ensemble that well very often, and it frequently gets punished at the box office, as well as by viewers and by reviewers, for even trying. This film pulls together a low-key cast with an intelligent script and ends up as a quirky, darkly humorous drama that unfolds over Christmas Eve. The characters are a motley crew of misfits and losers, stereotypical small-towners on the surface, with the obligatory pregnant woman arriving as a tv reporter from the big city. The actors, many of whom we're used to seeing in bigger roles where they tend to take up a lot of <more>
screen, give dialed-back performances that allow - even expect - the audience to fill in the subtext. And there's a fair bit of subtext lying behind and between the stripped-down dialogue: about power and corruption, war and trauma, family and gender roles, the nature of life's choices and the cold reality of death. This could be done as a stage play and it would be getting rave reviews that mentioned Tennessee Williams. I'm not used to seeing so much packed into a contemporary, for-the-masses movie, and I'm plainly not alone in that. The poor reviews may be due in part to an un-sparing execution that's cutting too close to the tragi-comic reality of the modern American south.
Great satire on the ineptitude of trigger happy police. (by slaptastical)
I felt compelled to write a a review of this movie after watching this on Netflix last night, really enjoying it and then reading another user review that I felt completely missed the mark. The review described it as full of dumb characters doing really dumb things which makes it totally unbelievable and annoying to watch. But that's exactly why it is great. So forgive me if I am wrong but the point of the movie is it serves as a social commentary on the ineptitude of some police and public and their willingness to act first, think later.It plays out a bit like Coen brothers comedy of <more>
errors, with some over the top characters ending up in a ridiculous hostage situation in a liquor store on Christmas eve, but due to no other reason than misunderstanding. And then things escalate. Although a comedy it doesn't have many laugh out loud moments, but more of an underlying black comedy tone. It's short runtime means it never out stays it's welcome and although the plot itself is basic and predictable, it's a fun ride with some well placed serious moments.Tim Allen and Vincent D'Onofrio are a joy to watch, playing up on screen and clearly having fun with it, and Dax Shepard has some excellent lines as the dumbest of all the dumb cops. It's definitely not the most festive film you can watch over Christmas, but it's current low rating 5.8 is a shame, it deserves higher as it's well worth a watch.
