God, America, Justice, Freedom, or an American Samurai in Islamabad

This is loosely based on a true story. Gary Brooks Faulkner (Nicolas Cage) is obsessed with getting Osama bin Laden. He is a part time handy man who skips his dialysis and hallucinates. He talks to God (Russell Brand) who has a British accent and commands him to go to Pakistan and kill Osama, but is not big on details on how to do it. Gary is befriended by Marci (Wendi McLendon-Covey) who sees Gary is a good guy despite his crazy tendencies.

The film is humorous with Cage playing a crazy guy in a story that is overly dramatized. He is a likable idiot (like my BIL) who can be the ugly American and get away with it.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

Very Positive message.

Nicholas Cage brings life to the character. I found myself liking him right away. Good supporting cast. Very coherent story line as well. This movie is not based on mindless action , or sex appeal, it really doesn't have too much profanity either. Just a quirky take on a odd guy that had an interesting adventure. I like it. In summary, if you want something easy to digest and that has a positive message then check this out. It was a nice break from all the ideological propaganda masquerading as entertainment these days.

The hunt is on

Nicolas Cage tries to take a break from straight to Pay TV action movies with a free wheeling quirky comedy as Gary Faulkner who we are told in the opening monologue who might be certifiably insane. We are also told that this movie is somewhat trueish.

Faulkner, the demented handyman experiences a vision of God (Russell Brand) who tells him to go Pakistan and find and capture Osama Bin Laden. That is what Faulkner tries to do armed with a samurai sword. He attempts to sail there from San Diego, then hand glide there from Israel before deciding to fly to Pakistan on a plane.

Director Larry Charles holds back on the film being a satirical romp and concentrates on Faulkner's eccentricities with some allusions to him being Don Quixote (we even see Faulkner riding a donkey.)

The film falls a bit flat and Cage's whiny voice becomes annoying. It also does not help that Marrakesh is unconvincing standing in for Islamabad.
