American war veteran Calvin Barr ( Sam Elliot ) is living the ordinary day life as a retired war veteran. Back in World War 2, he actually killed Hitler and is since then considered to be a hero. When the government visit him at his home, they need his help. Bigfoot have taken many lives, and needs to be stopped. Calvin is asked to go out there and kill Bigfoot. At first he is not interested, but he eventually agree to do it. Considering that Calvin is now an old man, can he finish this mission, or is his time running out ?
You know that feeling when you know that you might have come across a movie that people will talk about in the future ? This is the kind of movie that gives you that feeling, since this is a very odd mix of serious drama, and some kind of adventure. You have the man who once killed Hitler, ordered by the government to kill Bigfoot as well, even if he is very old in present day. I don´t think i have seen any film similar to this one, and i appreciate that. Since most films released these days looks almost similar to other movies, The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot follow a complete different path. One of the things i enjoy about this film is to see legendary actor Sam Elliot as a retired war hero, and he gives a really solid performance. His character Calvin Barr is clearly a man who have gone through a lot in his life. Sam is one of those legendary actors who knows how to develope characters, and make them unique. And this is something he clearly knows how to do this time as well. Sam delivers his dialogue in his own unique way. You get to see Calvin in the past as well, and how he managed to murder the nazi dictator Hitler, without being caught. Actor Ron Livingston ( who you might remember from the 90´s cult classic Office Space, and The Conjuring of course ) is also here as Flag Pin. You will most likely recognize actor Aidan Turner, who played character Kili in The Hobbit movies . He plays Young Calvin in this film, and he does a pretty good job. The plot of this film is quite interesting. At first this seems to be the story of an old man, but the film tell the story of his previous life when he killed Hitler all by himself, and now the government wants him to kill Bigfoot. I know, that is an insane plot, but for some strange reason it works. Maybe it is because of the character of Sam Elliot, since he is the strongest character of this film. Director Robert D. Krzykowski ( who is the co-producer of the good Australian horror movie The Woman ) have made a film that feels unique in many ways. How often do you see a film where one man killed Hitler and chase Bigfoot ? And this is something that director Robert D. Krzykowski manage to do, combine different ideas into an odd adventure drama. There are a few details i feel could have been better, but overall i think this is a film you should see for trying to be original. The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot is not a film that will be appreciated by everyone. But if you love original films with a crazy story, then you should see this film and hopefully enjoy it as i did.
