How I Saw It... The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot

With this title, this movie fits perfectly into the new genre, "Enjoy the Journey Because the Whole Plot Is in the Title". It joins others such as "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” and "Titanic" (A.K.A., The Ship Hits an Iceberg and Sinks Whilst the Band Plays Nearer, My God, to Thee).

Sam Elliot and his ubiquitous moustache are the stars of this show. In fact, I think that that credits should read "... also starring Sam Elliot's Moustache".

The story is split between two time streams: one where The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot (henceforth, to be referred to as "The Man") kills Hitler and the other stream where The Man kills Bigfoot. (Oh, don't boo-hoo to me! It's in the bloody title!)

Apparently, you can put a Hitler moustache on any bum, and, Presto! One made-to-order Hitler! (You see moustaches are magical!)

Actual conversation:
Me: I didn't think that Hitler looked very convincing.
Joyce: Oh, that was supposed to be Hitler?
Me (incredulously): Yes, didn't you see his moustache. (Again, moustaches are magical.)

Back to the story:
After serving the US of A and killing Hitler, The Man somehow makes his escape from Germany.
The Man, world weary and haunted, is requisitioned by an F.B.I. lackey and a Québécois Canadian official to serve the US of A once again and, umm, kill the Bigfoot. (And it seems like the President of the US of A is pretty eager to see mushroom clouds over Canada.)
After killing Bigfoot, The Man somehow makes his escape from Quebec.

This unlikely story sounds like it could be splashed across the headline of a tabloid in a supermarket line-up, but, thanks to The Man and his moustache they're able to pull it off. As The Man said, "It is nothing like the comic book you want it to be."

I give The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot 7 moustachios out of 10, and I give The Man 9/10 moustachios. .
