FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
The Christmas Chronicles is an entertaining, all-ages Holiday adventure that may change your thoughts on the man in red. While the story is cliched and filled with cheesy Holiday moments, the colorful visuals, fun premise and excellent performances, capped by one of the most deeply complex portrayals of Santa Claus, make for a holly jolly good time. It is worth the watch on Kurt Russell alone.
★★★★★★★½☆☆ 7.5/10 – Consider
