The Knight Before Christmas is the name on one of the many original Netflix productions coming at us before Christmas in 2019. I didn’t have high expectations before it all started, but somehow the movie managed to perform even worse than I expected!
I don’t care if a movie has a bad story as long as it sometimes manages to make me interested. I didn’t like Holiday in the Wild, but still, the animals were nice, and thus, I could quite easily watch the movie without getting too bored. But, The Knight Before Christmas didn’t manage to make me interested in any way. It was simply boring from the very first moment and it never managed to turn into an interesting movie.
Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe in Holiday in the Wild might be a stronger combo than Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Whitehouse in The Knight Before Christmas. I must admit, Vanessa Hudgens has fallen into the really bad B-category movies after her success with High School Musical. But, in her Netflix original movie last year named The Princess Switch, I actually had a good time (even though it was a movie with a low potential as well). So, this could have turned into a movie worth watching. However, it didn’t!
A great alternative to sleeping pills
When I started to watch The Knight Before Christmas, I had energy and looked forward to streaming it. But, it didn’t take many minutes before my eyes felt tempted to make it dark. I remained strong for 50 minutes, but then I simply fell asleep. However, my surroundings didn’t allow me to sleep for a long time, so I returned to the story after a few minutes. But, considering that things didn’t improve, I went back into sleeping mode again. Luckily, I woke up to see the happy ending, but for me, it was happy because it meant that I could brush my teeth and go to bed!
Vanessa Hudgens is cute in her role, but it doesn’t help this movie a second.
