Goofs

Despite his given status as an "expert" on gun safety and usage, Derek Savage's suggestion in one of his scenarios that a responsible and trained gun owner should leave an unholstered handgun in an empty car passenger seat while out in public would be tremendously careless, unsafe, and improper handling of a firearm.

Quotes

Derek Savage - Host: Wow, it's such a beautiful day in Las Vegas today, and I just love it when the weather is like this out here, but unfortunately, I'm not that happy right now, and that's because I saw an article on the news just a little bit ago where a child got hurt with a gun. That is unacceptable, but the great thing is there is a solution, and the solution is in the 'Cool Cat' movie.

Cool Cat Loves You, But Daddy Derek Wants to Shoot You
14 June 2017 | by seanmurrayiSee all my reviews

This video is as useful as a bullet in the head, and appropriately enough, before the opening title, "writer"/producer/director/camera operator/editor/host Derek Savage points his gun directly at the camera and "shoots" his viewers straight in the face.

Mr. Savage has no business being in front of a camera instructing viewers on ANY subject, but in his own mind he's a knowledgeable "expert" who can talk at length on gun safety and self-defense because, he tells us, (1) he's owned a gun since he was 10-years-old (how could that even be legal?) and (2) he's worked in "the machine gun business" (on which he gives no specifics to clarify what this even means or why anyone should care).

Much of Savage's time on screen is spent either stirring panic and raising alarm that "crime and home invasions are on the rise"--without citing any data or empirical studies and choosing to leave it up to his viewers to figure out for themselves why there are higher rates of crime in places like Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago (IDK, maybe it has something to do with a vastly higher population density than Cornfield, Iowa???)--or feeding his own ego by showing off his various guns and toys as if he's hoping for the slightest excuse to use them and justify causing grievous bodily harm (Again, he wants we the viewers to stare down his gun barrel before he pulls the trigger on more than one occasion).

It's less about learning "gun self-defense" and proper gun etiquette and more about Derek Savage making himself feel powerful and important. (Best exemplified when he derails everything to just pride himself on being "The Creator of Cool Cat", as well as in a POV camera shot that's intended to be a "mailman's" visual perspective which would in fact place the figure at waist-level with Mr. Savage, as if the mailman were on his knees and gazing up to the "godlike" figure that Derek wants others to see him as... or as if he gets his mail delivered by Peter Dinklage)

In one of the most telling moments about Mr. Savage's mindset and dreams of dispensing Charles Bronson-styled vigilante justice, he produces a poster of mass shooter Dylann Roof, which he says he selected for target practice "for all of (his) black brothers and sisters out there." Apparently, Mr. Savage is totally unaware of the media attention that the families and loved ones of Roof's victims received when offering their forgiveness during Roof's criminal hearing because that was the powerfully Christian thing for them to do after what had happened in their church. The irony of Savage wishing he could have personally exerted lethal force on Roof in the name of his victims, in spite of the loftier example that they had set in NOT giving into wrathful temptation and NOT wishing any more harm could come to anybody--not even a complete monster--is completely lost on him.

Elsewhere, Derek Savage associates himself with a woman who intimidates FedEx drivers with electrical prods, a woman who claims to be "pro-police" but does nothing except criticize their effectiveness in order to justify the supposed need for personal firearms, right-wing talk radio bobble head Heidi Harris, and a woman who says she had successfully fended off an attacker without the aid of a firearm who Derek Savage suggests would have still been better off if she had kept a loaded gun lying in plain view on her car's front passenger seat.

From a technical production standpoint, this is an even bigger mess. Audio levels and sound quality varies from scene-to-scene and second-to-second, and edits are often disorienting and conspicuous. In one instance, the simple sentence, "One time I heard you talking about a cocktail waitress" is conveyed with an audio and camera cut on every other word. And near the end, when a firearms instructor invites Derek Savage to speak to his class, Savage is seen standing up, about to make some kind of statement... and then in mid-sentence there's sharp cut to Mr. Savage saying the class is running late and he doesn't want to take up any more time. Then what was even the point of showing ANY of that? Even more outlandishly, this segment on the firearms course is introduced WHILE Derek Savage is driving his car to the event itself, frequently taking his eyes off the road ahead of him to speak directly to his camera propped on the dashboard. A personal introduction to this segment could have been recorded any time for this documentary, even after it was already filmed, without needlessly endangering the lives of other drivers on the streets of Las Vegas. Don't drink & drive, don't text & drive, and certainly don't film your own DVD vanity projects & drive.

If anyone is only interested in this for a glimpse of Cool Cat, expect to be disappointed. Outside of "Daddy Derek" taking a moment to blatantly advertise his Cool Cat merchandise to the few people watching this who haven't yet had the "privilege" to learn about that godawful travesty, Cool Cat's only exposure in this is in re-used material carried over from Derek Savage's previous film. However, if you're somehow able to get through this entire video, prepare to be completely baffled by the start of the end credits.
