The title of this one implies some campy fun, right? The fact it stars Sam Elliot has you thinking tongue-in-cheek, cult classic adventure in the making, perhaps? I’m all for a movie deviating from expectations—bring it on—but this one has no idea what it is trying to accomplish. Elliot plays an old soldier drinking his life away. Through flashbacks, we see that he was part of some covert operation to kill Hitler. That part of the movie’s title is handled in a couple of quick, unimaginative scenes. Then, his character is approached by the government to go and kill Bigfoot because he’s spreading a disease in Canada that could wipe out the entire planet. Again, this part of the film’s title is handled in a couple of flimsy scenes, one including Bigfoot vomiting all over Elliot. The movie actually takes itself seriously, trying to depict a sincere look at a mercenary defeated by lost love and looking for one last chance, replete with a sappy soundtrack and real attempts at emoting. Come on? This could’ve been goofy fun, and moments like Bigfoot spouting vomit all over the place show that there may have been loony cult aspirations with this one. Instead, it’s a real drama with a cult title meant to fool geek chumps like me into plunking down the dough for a viewing. Avoid this. It’s terrible.
