Decent Old Western Style Christmas Movie

  • Dec 6, 2007
Rating:
+3
Pros: Great plot, very moving

Cons: Little action, slow-paced

The Bottom Line: Great movie with Christmas spirit and is family friendly, but not for those who are looking for action.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie's plot.

I thought this was a very moving Christmas movie, although since the celebration of Christmas in the movie plays a minor role in the overall plot it is still great all year round. The basic plot is around the grandfather Ike not liking the neighbor family of partly Native Americans because some unrelated Native Americans killed his wife. The main action, however, is around his daughter's family that includes two sons and one of the son's is friends with the boy in the Native American family. The main tension in the story involves the Native American family being forced off their land, his sick grandson, and the daughter's family associating with the Native Americans. The end of the movie is very touching with the grandfather no longer being a Scrooge about Christmas and realizing that these Native Americans were good people. The miracle the title refers to can be seen as several different things that occur towards the end of the movie all of which work to wrap up the plot very well. Overall I loved the movie, but some may find it too slow paced and boring because it lacks action. What it does have though is a wonderfully touching and well-developed plot. It is also appropriate for the whole family, although there are a few scenes with guns and shooting involving a kind of class Wild West bandit occurance.
