After a personal visit by God himself, the eccentric construction worker Gary Faulkner takes the decision to embark on an adventure in the badlands of Pakistan to bring Al-Qaeda's leader Osama Bin Laden to justice.
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
When Gary and friends went to Vegas, he mentioned that it was the plan of the "all-knowing, all-seeing" God. The scene then cuts into a TV screen that shows an eye, hint at what Gary said. See more »

During the ending credits, real news footage of Gary Faulkner is shown. The footage ends with a statement, "Gary is currently planning to use the money made from this film to buy a kidney so that he can continue his mission." See more »
When I heard that Nic Cage will star in Larry Charles' new movie, I was psyched. The director of Borat and the Dictator plus the writer of Seinfeld making a bin Laden satire with the greatest genius in Hollywood, Wendi McLendon from Goldbergs and Russell Brand as God (or his version of God). How can you go wrong? Well I am happy to say that the movie is a lovely satire but don't get your hopes up if this is going to be something on the level of the Dictator. Cage as Gary Faulkner is hilarious (the movie would be worse without him), the guy they picked to play bin Laden looks like him and did a nice job for those two scenes in the movie. Brand nails his role as God. McLendon-Covey is extremely sexy as Marci and has lovely chemistry with Cage. In the end, this movie might get panned because of the satire or Nic Cage but I'm betting that in a couple of years they will be talking about it every time somebody brings up George W. Also the ending is pretty funny.
