Many questions arise from this disrespectful documentary
"A Timeless Call" is a documentary from 2008, so this one will have its 10th anniversary next year. It runs for slightly over 7 minutes only and I read that it was made for the Democratic National Convention 2008, so basically the event that crowned Barrack Obama as the official presidential nominee by the Democrat Party quite a while before he went on to go up against John McCain and become the first African American President a while later. Now after watching this little film, you may wonder why this was made for this event. And the answer is: Patriotism. It's true that military usually tends to vote more Republican, but maybe this was a Democrat attempt to change that a little bit. And looking at Obama's victory it may have helped. Now regardless of the way Obama destroyed the country in the last 8 years and people still stayed blind to it, this film here is a perfect example of how liberal Hollywood is these days. Spielberg and Hanks are still very much respected in the USA and everywhere else in the world, but making more films like this one here will change that for the negative I'm sure. Especially Hanks' entry was pretty cringeworthy and that comes from somebody who quite likes him as an actor. As for Spielberg's direction: There was really nothing in here that stood out and most other mediocre filmmakers could have come up with this work too in terms of talent. The ones I feel sorry for the most here are the soldiers and veterans depicted. Their stories deserve a lot more than approximately one minute screen time per person, sometimes even 30 seconds only. I certainly give this one a thumbs-down and 4 star out of 10 is still really on the generous side.
