Plot: Calvin Barr, an old, bitter recluse who was once a legendary assassin for the US government, and whose task to kill Hitler almost changed the course of WWII, is asked to come back from retirement for one final top secret mission - to track down and eliminate a Bigfoot that became infected with a… Runtime: 98 min Release Date: 08 Feb 2019
As a 63-year-old man, I saw a very different film. This is a man at the end of his life, full of regrets, trying desperately to rewrite his life's story. One of the few"real" moments in this film is the opening scene in the bar. A lonely old man having a drink by himself. The bartender suggests a change. He responds he'll quit drinking--but they both know that won't happen. As a young man he was shy and ineffectual. He couldn't even propose to his girlfriend, letting more dominant personalities overwhelm him at critical moments. So he fantasizes about going off to <more>
war and being an unsung hero. But since it's a fantasy, it's ineffectual as well--killing Hitler for no good purpose maybe a substitute for the actual death that surrounded him as a WWII infantryman? . His girlfriend moved away. All he had was a ring he kept in a box. And an imaginary pebble he his shoe that reminded him of... Fast forward to his bleak elderly life of TV dinners and solitary existence. Another fantasy develops, about Bigfoot, triggered by what he's seen on TV while dozing off. His younger brother plays along while giving him a haircut, listening to him speak ominously about a man he killed in the war. Then later his younger brother responds gently to the notion of his going on a secret mission--remember the late night park scene about "truth"? The truth spoken of is the truth of love in the face of harsh realities. And later, if he was dead and buried, why didn't people say anything when he shows up for the children's play? Perhaps he did go to war. Perhaps he was traumatized and the uniform in the closet was real. Be that as it may, here's what happens as you grow older: You start writing the story of your life. As time goes on you rewrite it so that whatever happens, it all makes sense and has a purpose. You justify your actions, and you become the unsung hero or victim . Some tells: During the carjacking the thug burns the cherished picture of his girlfriend and he does nothing--passive as usual. But he responds when they try to take his car? Are the sirens responding to his injuries, not the thugs'? The biggest tell of all: the movie's title and plot line. It's screaming "Hello viewers, this is a total, impossibly absurd fantasy. An Allegory." So obvious, but then there are people still trying to figure out what happened in the final scene of The Sopranos yes, they were all shot . Now...all that said...this was a beautifully conceived and crafted film--if you know which film you're watching. Sam's best work.So in the end he finds the pebble--the universal symbol of a nagging annoyance. And with his box of memories he starts accepting life on life's terms. And it ain't so bad. He's got a dog and a brother who loves him. And that's enough.
We need this film showing in the UK. The premier was extremely well received. Reviews are great.
Loved it. (by pchristakis)
Beautiful story about life, choices, consequences, loss and love. It's a fictional story but the feelings it evokes are real and human.
You either buy into it... or you don't! I did! (by denickamartinez)
I was able to see this movie last night at the Plaza Theatre Classic Film Festival held in El Paso, Texas. Apparently, many people involved in this film have made El Paso home and the star, Sam Elliott has El Paso ties as well. So we everyone in attendance last night were privileged to see it's American debut and I have to say for a movie that didn't start till almost 11:30 pm and ran into the wee hours of the night all 1,400 people stayed. That should say something about it in and of itself. It takes awhile to get ahold of what's going on but once you "buy into" the <more>
story line it takes you on a crazy journey and in the end that's what good movies are about. You won't be disappointed! And to answer the question, "What's in the box?" the writer was also present last night and he said, .... Nevermind, I don't want to ruin it for you.
Not what someone would expect based on the title (by bbretall-1)
I loved this movie, but he title may keep away people who will love it, or leave people expecting a violent action-fest based on the title severely disappointed because it was not what they wanted it to be. Fortunately, I love both action movies and heartfelt dramas, so I was pleasantly surprised by the touching drama that they managed to wrap around the hero played by Aidan Turner in WWII and Sam Elliott 50 some years later killing the 2 characters in the title. Told in the form of flashbacks to WWII, as well as the years before and directly after, we get to know Calvin Barr and see his <more>
budding romance with Maxine. In the "present day" we get to know the older Calvin, and a bit of a commentary on the effects of aging are woven into the storytelling as he is called back into service to hunt down Bigfoot in the Canadian forest, who is carrying a deadly virus that Calvin is immune to before it can spread widely in the human population. Just roll with the plot device used and you can enjoy the film as I did.
It takes some time to really get into the meat of this story. Paced and well thought out. Sam Elliott is masterful with the subject even though you might look at it as too slow paced if you hang around you won't regret seeing this movie.
Allegory of america (by jerusha-77407)
My mother gave me this insight she's a genius . This movie is an allegory of the US and the struggle against first the nazi's and then communism. See dialog between young Barr and the Russian who shaves him. Calls him Mr. America. Says they will be cursed and do not truly know each other. Will be enemies? Gin versus vodka. He kills hitler, but does not feel he's accomplished his mission. The man killed did not kill the idea. See the rock he cannot get out of his shoe. Fast forward. Flag pin American government asks him to kill THE Bigfoot, not a Bigfoot. Something that will <more>
destroy the world. A virus that will spread to the whole world communism . Must be nuked. Barr is immune the American soldier/patriot . Others are too old or too young. His the bigfoot's footprint is not THAT big. He breaks a pinky and loses an ear the curse from the Russian, but not fatal blows . The Bigfoot is not an animal. It is a zombie-like evil. He tries to show mercy they won't get your body buddy only to have the evil turn on him again. Evil must be met with brutality. Once he is vanquished, the American soldier feels his mission is complete rock out of shoe . The soldier uniform and medals was buried. See dates on tombstone. Very close to Russian revolution then fall of Soviet Union. However, the "box" was dug up again for the American soldier to stand guard "one more day". The fight does not end. The American soldier cannot rest. So many other symbols. Just food for thought. I can't find anything to corroborate, but everything fits. Very thought provoking and enjoyable film. More there to be uncovered with the brother and girlfriend those left at home . Sam Elliot is excellent.
Despite the outrageous title, a slow character study centered on loss and regret... (by terrorfirmer-ie)
This is not the movie you might reasonably have expected from the title - while both killings are part of the movie, they play second fiddle to the story of a man who has sacrified everything for what he believes is in service of the greater good.Really took me by surprise, Sam Elliot really delivers a superb performance, which is pretty much what the movie hangs on.Yes, it's a bit bizarre to have a movie where the assassination of Hitler and killing of Bigfoot - by the main character - are mere sidenotes in a slow-burn character study....But it worked for me, I can see why it <more>
wouldn't for others, but it's genuinely a good movie and not the b-movie schlock-fest the title implies.
Solid and engrossing effort with a monster involved (by kannibalcorpsegrinder)
Carrying a deadly secret, an aging WWII soldier who's never revealed the deadly truth about his past involvement in World War II is called back into service by the government to stop a rampaging Bigfoot-like creature carrying a deadly virus through the wilderness and sets out to stop it.Frankly, this emerged as a wholly impressive and enjoyable outing. One of the many engaging elements present here is the manner in which this partakes in the commentary on old age. Throughout the film, the numerous instances of his coming to terms with his advancing age and the effect that has on him tells <more>
a wonderful story about the way his life has turned him into. From the series of flashbacks to his past in the war, not only the series of scenes detailing how he managed to carry out the mission but the pre-mission preparations that are just as important that are showcased here, to the way we see him longing at the memories of the past with the mementos and objects he carries with him which manage to bring this point home quite nicely. All the remembrances he gets of the past through the common everyday acts or items he encounters simply completes the picture of how he remains burdened with his life and can't do much with it. Once it gets into the main meat of the story, this backstory about the man who's skillset proved useful in the past and is now catching up to him causes plenty of fun to be had in the final half where it turns into a rather enjoyable series of confrontations against the creature out in the wilderness. Putting on more of a hunting/tracking display on encounters, ranging from him sniping at the creature out in the distance to the decoys and other back-and-forth encounters that are given a glorious backdrop of the expansive woods of Canada to play in. Taking the adventure route here instead of the horror route allows this one to work more on the genesis of him physically hunting the creature through the area as well as getting in a fine physical brawl between the two that works mainly on that level. These here are what really help this one to overcome its minor flaws. All told, there's not much truly wrong with this one beyond what might be audience expectations. Those going into this one expecting a rousing, wild action-packed film with a series of ridiculous action scenes showing an alternate version of history that would let the commonly-known version of history play out as it normally would are going to be sorely mistaken here in that it's nothing of the sort. It's so late into the movie that they even first mention the creature, a later time than that before he even agrees to the mission and it's so short that there's more time after the encounter than the overall confrontation itself. It doesn't spend enough time at all on the concept of the creature running loose at all to really make much of an impression in that regard, which is just as well considering the ugly and somewhat goofy looking costume given to the creature. However, those expecting a genuine creature feature will be let down here which is the main issue to be had here.Rated Unrated/R: Violence and Language.
