Taking Chance (HBO Films 2009)

I usually don't make it a habit to post movies up here that I've not seen, but my boss saw this one and gave it a BIG thumbs up!

Unfortunately Taking Chance, starring Kevin Bacon, won't be available on DVD until May 19th. It premiered on HBO back in February.

Based on real-life events, Lt. Col. Michael Strobl (Bacon), a volunteer military escort officer, accompanies the body of 19-year-old Marine Chance Phelps back to his hometown of Dubois, Wyoming.

I did manage to find the trailer on Youtube (below)! Looks like a good one, so keep your eyes open when it hits Netflix and video stores!

Here is the official website for the movie!

I like Bacon and his wife, they seem to be good people in real life. I also like their acting. This looks to be a good one. I hope sales are good also.

Thanks for stopping by again.

He always seems to be one of those actors that you would like if ya' ever met him doesn't he?

Anyway, thanks for stopping by too and I hope you have a great Easter weekend!

It was a good book. If someone really is interested, and can't wait for the DVD, the story is compelling. You will come away with some hope for the heart of America.

Semper Fi, Chance.
