FATMAN (2020): The Things I Liked…

Unlike many, it seems, I had a good time watching Mel Gibson’s latest action/comedy/thriller, Fatman, the story of a young boys revenge on Santa Claus following one too many extremely disappointing Christmas presents. 

As great as Walton Goggins and Gibson were, for me, as expected after seeing the trailer weeks earlier, I was most impressed by Chance Hurstfield, the disappointed child. Such magnetic on-screen presence for a young man. So much so I’m rather  excited to see what he does next.

The music, smart pacing and the way the dialogue induces laughter in unexpected places is part of what makes writer/directors Eshom Nelms and Ian Nelms’s movie very watchable. 

For me, Fatman is precisely as good, dark and refreshing as I dreamed. Give it a chance for the seasonal movie difference it offers. Perhaps it’s the very kind of difference you didn’t know you were missing.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of  Fatman (2020).


Fatman is a new comedy/thriller about what can happen to you when you’re Santa Claus and you disappoint the wrong child at Christmas. Said disappointed child can quite easily hire a hitman to end you.

Directed by Eshom Nelms and Ian Nelms; additional key cast includes Shaun Benson, Chance Hurstfield, Jordan Blais and Deborah Grover.

I often like to watch trailers before I read the synopsis, and this one certainly didn’t go where I thought it would.

I’m looking forward to the humour and what looks like a great performance by Goggins and young Chance Hurstfield who plays the aforementioned very, VERY disappointed child.

Paulino Nunes, Michelle Lang, Bill Turnbull, Robert Bockstael, Bill Lake, Michael Dickson, Joyce Rivera and Sean Tucker also star.

Fatman Release Dates: November 17th, 2020 (US)…
