“Calvin Barr (Sam Elliott) is an obscure legend. Back in WW2, he infiltrated Nazi Germany and, in a top-secret mission, assassinated Hitler, but now lives a quiet small-town life with only his adoring brother (Larry Miller) to keep him company. But, when Uncle Sam comes calling in the guise of an F.B.I agent who needs him to hunt and kill none other than Bigfoot, Calvin finds himself unable to resist the call of duty. — While we might assume it would be a silly, pseudo-grindhouse actioner with a title like that, in reality, writer-director Robert D. Krzykowski’s movie is a far more genteel, elegiac tale, and impressive in its complete lack of silliness. From the first frame, you invest in Barr’s life and legend, thanks to a perfectly calibrated lead performance by the great Sam Elliott.” – Chris Bumbray / Arrow in the Head
