Fatman is a wickedly fun entry in the Christmas movie genre. A spoiled kid named Billy (Chance Hurstfield) hires a hitman (a deliciously twisted Walton Goggins) to off Santa (a perfectly cast Mel Gibson) after Billy receives a box of coal on Christmas. What ensues is violent, gory, and darkly comedic.
This was a refreshing take on the holiday film genre, and I was thoroughly impressed by the fast pace of the story, the incredible soundtrack, and the acting. The filmmakers made a wonderful little gem of a film that uses everything it has to its full advantage. If you’re tired of the same-old Christmas fare and enjoy some dark material, Fatman should be right up your street.
