Strangest Christmas movie I have ever seen
This is not your classic Christmas tale and isn't recommended for children under 5 (due to the very good possibility of them being scared). The movie recreates Santa and the Easter Bunny as hardened, tough guy super heroes who don't hesitate to pull out swords or grenades when facing the enemy. Santa has tatoos all over his body and is threatening to anyone who dares disagree with him. With enemies like Pitch threatening the children of the world, it takes a group of tough guys keep him at bay. Turns out the tough guys are not enough - one more guardian is needed, and the Man in the Moon decides that it needs to be Jack Frost. Jack is a go-lucky sort with an impish side, but not as hardened or tough as Santa and the Easter bunny. Younger kids will leave remembering him as their favorite character (and possibly with negative feelings towards Santa and the Easter Bunny). The settings in this movie as as "grey" as the characters - the movie is mostly set in the grimy inner city.
