What is the movie about and how does it end?
Chris Cringle runs his Christmas gift shop in North Peak, Alaska with his wife, Ruth. As too many children become too vicious, his income decreases. The United States government retains a stake in Chris’ business. They send Captain Jacobs to offer Chris a two-month contract. The contract is to produce components for a new jet fighter for the US military. Liaison officers are threatening to withhold government grants, overcoming his fears. However, Ruth eventually manages to restore her spirits. On Christmas Eve, a spoiled rich kid named Billy Wenan receives a lump of coal from Chris for his selfishness. After that, he swears revenge and hires a personal hitman to kill Chris. He uses his grandmother’s accounts to hire the hitman, Jonathan Miller. Ultimately, Miller has had his vendetta against Chris since he was a child.
After a few unsuccessful attempts, Miller manages to find Chris’s address from letters he receives from children around the world. He follows Chris’s farm to North Peak. He then successfully infiltrates the compound and kills all U.S. Army guards. One of the elven workers finds him and raises the alarm. Before Miller blows up the store, Jacobs evacuates the workers, sacrificing himself in doing so. Chris then throws himself in with Miller, gaining the upper hand at first. However, Miller stabs Chris and then shoots him in the eye, killing him. However, Ruth intervenes and shoots Miller in her head. And since he is immortal, Chris is eventually recovering from his injuries. Chris and Ruth then trace Billy’s house and visit him. Chris warns Billy that he’ll keep an eye on him if he’s mean again. The film ends with Chris, Ruth, and the elves rebuilding the shop.
Fatman ending explained
Chris is nearly killed by Jonathan Miller after wiping out the US Army Guards. At first, Chris and Miller fight with the former Dominant. However, Miller ultimately emerges as the winner as he pulls away, stabbing Chris and gouging out one of his eyes. Chris dies, well, in a way. After tweaking Chris, Miller gets his head blown up by Ruth. And Chris, well, he’s immortal, so he can’t really die. He eventually recovers from his injuries, and when he does, he visits Billy Wenan with Ruth. Billy had embezzled money from his grandmother’s accounts.

As Chris says, “The Fatman has his eye on you.”
