Calvin Barr, an old, bitter recluse who was once a legendary assassin for the US government, and whose task to kill Hitler almost changed the course of WWII, is asked to come back from retirement for one final top secret mission - to track down and eliminate a Bigfoot that became infected with a deadly disease that could spread to others if the creature remains on the loose in the forest for too long. During the mission, Barr's WWII past is shown through flashbacks.
The Canadian agent speaks with a Parisienne French accent. The French-Canadian accent is distinctly different from Parisienne French. To Canadians it's like having a character from the Bronx speaking with a Michael Caine British accent. See more »
My grandfather use to tell all kinds of stories about this one soldier... but he wasn't taking about a man, but rather something mythic.

Great first half, even if it does bounce around a lot between timelines, though unfortunately that becomes a little tiresome the more the film goes on. Sam Elliott is fantastic, and he is truly the perfect actor for this role; I award this a 6.5/10 solely based on his performance, in a film that isn't quite sure what it is supposed to be, though ends up being more of a drama about a tired old man than anything else.
