Director Joseph Mankiewicz's first work for television, the 90-minute ABC drama was publicized as having an all-star cast (which meant that names of some supporting cast members were not officially released). In Rod Serling's update of Charles Dickens, industrial tycoon Daniel Grudge has never recovered from the loss of his 22-year-old son Marley, killed in action during Christmas Eve of 1944. The embittered Grudge has only scorn for any American involvement in international affairs. But then the Ghost of Christmas Past takes him back through time to a World War I troopship. Grudge also is visited by the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future gives him a tour across a desolate landscape where he sees the ruins of a once-great civilization.

From Riggs' hair to his question of Murtaugh "What are you, a fag?" this film is showing its age. I always had a bit of trouble with Mel Gibson's portrayal of someone allegedly suffering from mental health issues. He came across as unconvincing to me. This time around, I'm feeling it a bit more. "Hate him back, it works for me" is a response I'm familiar with. Gary Busey's contribution as the villain Joshua cannot be understated. He completes this film.

I thought the chemistry between Pat Morita and Ralph Macchio is still as good as what the first two movies were. Also, I don't mind the idea of a revenge story, but it could have been done better if it was well executed. I enjoy the music by Bill Conti, and the film's cinematography. Of course, I do say Thomas Ian Griffith plays a well done villain. With that said, the ending is a bit anti-climatic while Macchio's character having a new relationship with the new love interest didn't do much for me. This film is misguided, if they hadn't rehash some of the old stuff. Its watchable, but not really that good of a movie.
