Sam Elliot reminds men to be men.
I get fairly annoyed with Hollywood. No one seems to be able to come up with an original idea anymore. Most new movies are reboots, rehashing, or a gender/race swap of an old movie. But every now and then, something fresh actually makes it in. This is one of those times.
The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot is one of those movies. With that title, you begin to wonder if someone mixed up the pages in their pitch notebook. But in this case, that would be one pleasant accident.
The movie focuses on aging man, who in his past, killed Adolph Hitler. That man is now being tasked with killing Bigfoot. The hero of the story is played by none other than Sam Elliot. Sam Elliot is one of those men who exude masculinity, and in today’s day and age, one would think an actor like Sam Elliot would find himself out of work. After all, this is a time when a razor company, who built their business marketing to me, has no issue attacking men.
A movie with a completely new, and completely odd premise? Check. A movie which reminds men it’s ok to be manly? Check. I was all in before I saw the preview. After seeing the preview, there’s no doubt I’ll let this movie pass me by.
