Don't Even Start
14 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

As I've just recently been to a film festival where I watched a bunch of films knowing very little (if anything) in advance about the motion picture I was about to see and yet enjoyed every single one of them, I made a grave error thinking it could be like that with Hollywood productions. Well. Actually no. I was not thinking at all. My bad. Guess I was already in the zone for a brainless entertainment. Perfect for a demented zombie suffering from Alzheimers' disease. And I do not mean to belittle pensioners and seniors, but it seemed like this nursing home flick was intended for the nappy wearing 9 month olds than their 90 year old counterparts.

Truth to be told, I am a little too harsh on it, but only because the film was too damn basic and one dimensional. From the headlining Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones I was expecting something in the vein of 'Bucket List' perhaps. Frankly I didn't even know it was a Christmas film, which made it even worse. And though I guess my own ignorance is to blame for that one, it's still unforgivable to waste their talent on a film such as this. Christmas or not.

Perhaps the film will still be enjoyed by a few people, but in a week it will be forgotten and in years to come no TV channel will ever broadcast it over another 'Die Hard' or 'Wonderful Life' and the only place you could find it would perhaps be the old folks homes for rich people. Yet I bet they still have more interesting stuff to do than to watch this one. It might be more entertaining to be shown in a retirement home for poorer people, at least they could entertain themselves by bitching about the luxury lifestyle that they're missing.

Avoid this one like death.
