The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot (Sam Elliott)

THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT

Sam Elliott (TOMBSTONE, ROAD HOUSE) stars as a legendary World War II veteran who many years ago assassinated Adolf Hitler – an incredible secret that he’s frustratingly unable to share with the world. One day, just as he’s coming to terms with rounding out his life, Calvin gets a visit from the FBI and The Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They need him to take out Bigfoot. This wondrous feature debut from writer/director Robert D. Krzykowski features visual effects by celebrated two-time Academy Award Winner Douglas Trumbull (2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, BLADE RUNNER), who also co-produced alongside the great John Sayles (EIGHT MEN OUT) and Lucky McKee (THE WOMAN). A fantastical discourse on the melancholia of old age and a singular blast of entertaining wit, THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT also stars Aidan Turner (THE HOBBIT trilogy), Caitlin FitzGerald (Showtime’s “Masters of Sex”), and Ron Livingston (OFFICE SPACE).

Sounds like the title of the movie is one giant spoiler.

I am surprised by the serious tone of the trailer. I guess I figured this was going to be some sort of spoof.

Let's get some reviews in here!
If enough of you all like it, I might do a blind buy and I rarely do that anymore.
(BD currently 15 bucks at Amazon).

Re: The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot (Sam Elliott)

Way too serious and somber given the title. So many great and unique ideas with potentially wonderful moments, but it never really comes together. Instead I found it pretty dull.
Elliott is of course great, as always.

Re: The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot (Sam Elliott)

I attempted to watch this with a friend tonight but we got about 38 minutes in and he wanted to give up, so I agreed. Shockingly dull so far. I plan on finishing it in the morning but not the camp excitement the trailer sells; not so far.

Re: The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot (Sam Elliott)

I watched this tonight and really wanted to like it more than I did. The actors were great and it was wonderfully shot, but the story was slow and unfortunately mediocre. With a movie title like that, I felt like I should have been blown away, but came away with a shoulder shrug instead.

Re: The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot (Sam Elliott)

A swing and a miss.
I know this was to be a better movie than it turned out to be....there simply wasn't a pay-off.
I would like to know what happened (other than the real possibility the writer ran out ot talent).

Nor is it helped that the "Bigfoot" is so unimposing....

That too.

It does make one wonder how Eliot and RL got attached to this half-baked movie...
