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

Not as good as i thought
30 October 2016 | by jawad-shafiqSee all my reviews

O.k. I will let them get away with the totally inaccurate depiction of Pakistan, but this movies is just not fun to watch. This movie does not fit into the genre of comedy, it's not a drama and the inaccurate depiction of Pakistan makes it unfit to be a biography as well....

So overall not a good movie, the only good thing in the movie is Nicolas Cage, but there's only so much he can do!

Seems like the movie-makers did no research about Pakistan, but as I said earlier, I will let them get away with the depiction of Pakistan. But the sad part is that the movie has no story whatsoever, no direction nothing.
