Guilty. The guy who plays the young Calvin Barr brought us here.
Yes, that Aidan Turner fellow has that special something that can drag anyone in to see anything. From vampires to hobbits to overtly seductive captains, he's got you buying tickets and glued to screens on a daily basis. It's real powerful stuff! Now, once again, Mr. Turner delivers the goods, bringing us into a totally cool world where Bigfoot roams the land, Adolph Hitler faces a final, and just punishment and an older gent like Sam Elliott can kick ass like nobody's business!
"The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot" is a mouthful of a movie title, but flat out true to it's words. It's not often that you can go to a movie and actually see what you were promised. But this time, you most certainly do.
Calvin Barr (played in present time by Sam Elliott and by Aidan Turner as his youthful past) is a man who has seen it all. Barr spends most of his time in the company of his extraordinary memories. In his youth he had parted with his family, found the true love of his life, and ultimately, became the man who assassinated Hitler....Yes, you read that right. This guy kills Hitler. Face to face with the sadistic Nazi dictator, Calvin Barr, in an undercover operation plotted by the government, faces all fear and stands up against one of the world's greatest evils and ends it right then and there.
Sounds like the stuff that heroes are made of, right? Well, present day Calvin Barr doesn't feel so much like a hero anymore. Barr has regrets and he has learned that life is more precious than some people know. So, when the government returns to request his services once again, this time to save the world from a deadly plague carried by none other than the mythical creature Bigfoot, Calvin, regrettably, must do the one thing he was born to do --- hunt the Bigfoot.
Without spoiling the rest of this film for new viewers, we won't tell you the rest of the story, but what we can tell you is there is quite an adventure ahead! Sam Elliott and Aidan Turner are both extremely interesting individuals to watch.
Elliott is all heart with a rough and tough exterior. A true southern gentleman who has seen a lot of rock n' roll. He gives the character of Calvin Barr the soul that brings him to life. We can just read on his face what he has been through. Elliott's portrayal is excellent and is a sure-fire Oscar nomination for 2019!
Aidan Turner's young Calvin Barr is fresh faced, energetic and strongly passionate with a dash of shy loveliness that softens your heart. You can feel the electricity coming off of him as he marches towards his destination. An Irish actor who slips into the character (and voice) of an american hero with great ease. Aidan plays this role with determination and animation. He is an utter joy to lay your eyes upon...as usual. Oh, Mr. Turner, could you ever disappoint your audience? We think not.
If you can't get to one of the theatres that are playing this film, then rent it or buy it online. It is available on most digital platforms and will also be coming soon to dvd and blu-ray. And whether you enjoy these types of films or not, we have to advise you, it's a must see, because you don't want to be the only one who isn't talking about it.
The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot is grade-A "COOL" in our book!
