Storyline

Frustrated with the U.S. Government for its fruitless efforts to bring down Al-Qaeda's leader Osama Bin Laden, the eccentric middle-aged, part-time construction worker Gary Faulkner, after a personal visit by God himself, takes the decision to embark on an adventure in the badlands of Pakistan to get the job done. With the intention to bloodlessly capture and bring the infamous, yet, elusive leader to justice, Colorado's former handyman turned vigilante, will overlook his problems with diabetes and meticulously prepare for the long and perilous journey. Between reality and pre-dialysis hallucinations, armed only with a teleshop katana and a Stars and Stripes hang glider, this American samurai on a mission from God is determined to take matters into his own hands and succeed at any cost. Is he a hero or a crackpot? Written by Nick Riganas

Funny movie 7/10
31 October 2016 | by HaagseTVjunkieSee all my reviews

Saw this movie last weekend, did not know what to expect. I never heard of Gary Faulker before, but I remembered that a couple years ago there was a crazy American who traveled to Pakistan to capture OBL. I thought is was a hoax, nobody can be that stupid. So Meet Gary Faulker, people.

Nicolas Cage played the role very good, I did not see Nicolas Cage but a very annoying American patriot. Russel Brand played the role of god. He Was no Morgan Freeman god, but for this movie he played the part very convincing. Wendi McLendon-Covey acted a bit wooden and I really did not believe here role in the beginning of the movie. Extra notion for Rainn Wilson who played a small role in the movie as a some kind of jester.

Plot of the movie was very funny and fast pacing. Remember, this is not a documentary but a comedy. Watch this movie, if you want a real laugh.
