Rated: UR/Region A/2:40/1080p/Number of Discs 1

Calvin Barr, an old, bitter recluse who was once a legendary assassin for the US government, and whose task to kill Hitler almost changed the course of WWII, is asked to come back from retirement for one final top secret mission – to track down and eliminate a Bigfoot that became infected with a deadly disease that could spread to others if the creature remains on the loose in the forest for too long. During the mission, Barr’s WWII past is shown through flashbacks.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot isn’t just one of the longest titles to a newer movie in recent history, it isn’t that bad either. Spoilers in the title aside, you know what you are getting from the name but getting there is where the fun comes into play. Starring Sam Elliott in our lead role as an aging man with a hell of a history, we get a lot of flashbacks to the Hitler portion of things and we then build up to the Bigfoot stuff in modern times. While the title is a little ridiculous, the movie isn’t as bad as over the top as you’d think, or at least not at first. We have some funny moments here but we also have some tense moments to go along with it. I was also pretty impressed with the writing of the thing as well, with the movie having more than a few quotable moments in it. You can also never go wrong with Sam Elliott in anything and I’m positive he makes this one a bit better than it might have been otherwise.

The only thing that did kind of hurt this one was the Bigfoot portion. I understand what they were going for there and I don’t want to dive into anything that might spoil this one, but I’ll just say that Bigfoot wasn’t on the level that I was expecting. We also kind of get silly in how he comes into play, but who am I to question anything on a movie with a title such as, The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot? The bottom line is, this one can be a bit silly but it does have a good story and a good message there hidden inside it all that people will be able to relate to. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it offers up something that is at least different and that’s a hard thing to find on Blu-ray these days. Needless to say, I think everyone should check this one out.
