Mel Gibson stars as the titular gruff, time-battered Saint Nick in the movie ‘Fatman’. This dark comedy explores the idea that a real-world Santa would not be a very jolly man because there is so much wrong with the world at present. ‘Fatman’ shows a Santa Claus who is world-weary, cynical, and totally disenchanted with Christmas. The movie is equal parts dark comedy and action thriller. Apart from Mel Gibson in the lead role, the film stars Walton Goggins, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Chance Hurstfield as the main cast. Curious to know more about the plot of ‘Fatman’ and where you can stream it? Here is everything that you need to know.
What is Fatman About?
Chris Cringle, or as he’s known by the world, Santa Claus, is forced to work with the US military so that he can keep his failing business afloat. With his naughty list way longer than the nice list, Old Nick has lost his belief in Christmas miracles and has agreed to let his elves build fighter jets for the military. He lives with his wife Ruth, who constantly tries to bring back his Christmas spirit, without much success. When a rich, bratty kid (with alarming criminal tendencies) gets a lump of coal for Christmas present because he has been very naughty, he hires a hitman to kill Santa in revenge. The hitman, known as Skinny Man, is a skilled assassin with a grudge of his own against Santa and will not stop at anything until he has exacted revenge.
