I have an obscure one for you. “The Man Who Killed Hitler Then the Bigfoot” is a 2018 Drama/ Sci-Fi starring Sam Elliott (The Big Lebowski), Aidan Turner (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), and Larry Miller (10 Things I Hate About You).
“The Man Who Killed Hitler Then the Bigfoot” follows the story of a WWII vet (Elliott) who went on a secret mission and assassinated Hitler. Now an old man, who is lonely and doesn’t feel like he has much left to live for is once again called upon by his country to hunt down bigfoot and kill the monster. Bigfoot is carrying a type of plague that is wiping out wildlife and it’s starting to spread and kill off humans. Elliott is humanities last hope.
This sounds like one those awful cheesy Sci-Fi movies that shouldn’t exist. Where they mash up two things that shouldn’t be together and it is just a mess, like “Sharknado”. This has Sam Elliott in it though, and he’s a respectable actor, so I figured I would give it a shot. It was definitely different than I was expecting. It’s slower than expected and more on the drama side than anything else. Sure, it had its cheesy moments, I mean the plot is ridiculous, where else are you going to see Sam Elliott fight bigfoot? It’s original though, which I like that. Despite the name of the title, it doesn’t focus a whole lot on Hitler or bigfoot just more on Elliot’s life. It’s not a bad watch, like I mentioned just slower and different than I was expecting. You can currently catch it on Tubi. I give it a 6/10
