WORST XMAS FILM EVER!!!,
This review is from: Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger! [DVD] (DVD)
OK, I'm a sucker for a Christmas film & will watch almost anything at least once, just so I can tick it off my Christmas movie list. However, this film really is one of the worst movies I've ever see & is such a massive disapointment having really enjoyed the original Nativity with Martin Freeman (5/5 stars) Nativity! [DVD]. There seems to have been very little thought to story plot or how the characters interact with each other. David Tennants characters are both (twins) under used & to much focus is placed on the Mr.Poppy (Marc Wootton). The camera work is very patchy at best and leaps from looking movie quality to 8mm home movie, in fact the whole thing looks very low budget. The songs are incomplete and seem only to be there to fill screen time as does the entire School trip to Wales itself which just drags on & on & on... to the point that in the end I really didn't care if anyone ever found them again (a good 30mins spent walking around fields (again, did they run out of budget! i.e. cheap set?). For the life of me I can't believe this was written & directed by the same person as the original Nativity (Debbie Isitt, if you're reading this review then your St., Bernadettes School report card reads 'must try harder').
