Christmas Bounty is a fun-filled action-comedy movie from 2013 that tells the story of a former bounty hunter turned elementary school teacher named Tory Bell (Francia Raisa). Tory is forced to revisit her violent past when an old enemy from her bounty hunting days resurfaces, and she finds herself entangled in a high-stakes heist on the eve of Christmas.

The story starts with Tory Bell, who has left her bounty hunter life behind to pursue a career as a teacher. Tory lives a peaceful life with her fiancé, Nick (Will Greenberg), and his family in New Jersey. However, things take a dramatic turn when Tory's former bounty hunting crew comes back into her life.

Tory's ex-boyfriend and fellow bounty hunter, Mike (Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin), along with his gang of criminals, plan to rob the Christmas party of Nick's family patriarch, a wealthy businessman who is perceived to be a soft target. Mike and his cohorts believe that they can steal enough money to start a new life in Mexico, but Tory stands in their way.

Despite her reservations and her new life, Tory feels responsible for stopping Mike and his crew. She can't risk her future family's happiness, and so she undergoes much training and preparation to outsmart her old enemies. But at the same time, Tory struggles to keep her past a secret from Nick and his family, who are unaware of her former life as a ruthless bounty hunter.

As Tory tries to foil the robbery and save the day, she teams up with a security guard, Dave (Chelan Simmons), who ends up being a massive help in defeating Mike and his gang. But the real question remains whether Tory can prevent her past from catching up with her and ruining her future.

Christmas Bounty is a festive and energetic holiday movie with a lot of action, laughter, and romance. The film's tone is light-hearted, maintaining a fun balance between action, adventure, and romance. The good chemistry between the actors is clear and engaging, with Francia Raisa and Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin being standout performances.

Francia Raisa puts on a great performance as Tory Bell, conveying her character's humor, grit, and strength, as someone with a dark past but who's trying to move on. Raisa also has excellent support from her co-stars, with Will Greenberg playing the perfect love interest and partner in Tory's crime-fighting adventure.

Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin turns out as a great fit for the role; the former wrestler plays the role of the villain with ease and enthusiasm, giving the right balance of charm, menace, and humor. Chelan Simmons as Dave, the ally that Tory befriends, also gives an excellent performance, adding more humor to the film with her funny one-liners.

Furthermore, Director Gil Junger does an excellent job of balancing the movie's different genres, ensuring that the story remains exciting and fast-paced throughout.
