Dear readers, it’s time for a Ho-Ho throwdown. With two brand new Santa adventures in the mix for this holiday season, it’s time for Kurt Russell and Mel Gibson’s versions of the Bag Man to measure up. Since The Christmas Chronicles 2 and Fatman are aimed at two different audiences, we need to consider two different versions of St. Nick as we head into the holiday season. Of course, we’re going to ask questions about who would win a competition, and that’s exactly what we’re going to get into today.
To put these two holidaymakers through their paces, five different criteria are required: intellect, gifts, fists, the Mrs. (Claus) and elves. We’re going to go through each of these scenarios and consider whether Kurt Russell or Mel Gibson’s Santa Claus are performing excellently in that particular area. In the end, the ultimate winner will be crowned “Superior Santa Claus”, and you as the audience will have the opportunity to cast your own votes on this topic. But now the gloves are off and it’s time to see if Russell or Gibson is the superior Santa Claus.
