The Elf (2017)

Familiar Actors:

True Rating: 0/10

Body Count- 17

Note: An interesting gone to waste with a poorly executed film filled to the brim with lame kills, nonsense subplots, terrible acting (I couldn't even place the accents if they were even supposed to have them), awful CGI that at times looks like a bad photoshop job, and one of the worst endings! Nothing about this was good. They didn't even have attractive leads (Except I guess for the main girl's sister and her terrible actress best friend) or anything.

True Rating: 2/10

Body Count- 9ish

This really had its issues. One, why in the world would you name your main character of a serious movie Harry Hole! Two, why cast Val Kilmer and then randomly give him an awful dub? Three, the pacing and storyline is completely out of whack. Four, those snowmen could have been way better looking. Five, they had a lot of small roles that were pointless and surprisingly taken by well known actors. Six, the ending was so lackluster. How can a movie with such a nice cast have ending up such a failure? I really want to know what they were thinking here.

True Rating: 4.7/10

Body Count- 6

Note: The first scene was so random and out of place it felt like an ad or something. No point to it at all and is only visually referenced once and never spoke of. The acting is worse with painful performances from the main guy once again, Christopher Lambert, and Mike Tyson. The Mountain from Game of Thrones was a fun choice as a villain though and is definitely one of the only high points of the film. The fights are pretty standard issue with no real fun to them until the final one. There were also a lot of just plain dumb ideas throughout. A huge step down from the previous one.

True Rating: 6.2/10

Note: It's predictable and cliche, but it's cute and well acted enough to be a pleasant watch. It also had a few moments that I thought stood out slightly from other such types.
