‘Taking Chance’ HBO Movie Trailer | Kevin Bacon Plays Marine Chance Phelps

Usually when any movie that centers around America’s current war in Iraq emerges, I find myself disgusted with the amount of sensationalism. I have family and friends currently in the armed forces and, unfortunately, Hollywood often takes it upon themselves to distort their reality.

Taking Chance, on the other hand, looks to be a realistic portrayal of a what happened when 19-year-old Marine Chance Phelps’ body was escorted back to his hometown.

No matter your stance on the war in Iraq, you have to respect Ross Katz (the producer form Lost In Translation) for taking on such a project. He along with the real life Lt. Col. Michael Strobl wrote the story in honor of Chance Russel Phelps.

Kevin Bacon, who you may recognize from movies like Mystic River and Frost/Nixon, plays Lt. Col. Michael Strobl.

    This movie explains the difference between America and some of our political adversaries. The tremndous value we put on a human life, with all its wonderful potential and promise. I pray that these young men and women have not died in vain. Let us always remember thier service and sacrifice to our great country, and cherish the freedoms we enjoy because of them.

    This is a wonderful movie. I had no idea that this was how the military arrived home. It is so nice to know that they are so treated with dignity and love. Kevin Bacon is superb in this movie and seems like he felt everything he showed.

    Every red blooded American should see this movie! I am not a big movie fan—flying on Delta from Atlanta to Vegas on business, I saw this movie.

    My wife and I are retired Army (HOOOH) and I served in Vietnam—also served duirng the Desert Shield/Storm deployment etc and knowing how our military should be respected for what they do–this movie is an example how they should be treated—all–not just thoses who have given their lives.

    I know Delta and American Airlines are wonderful to our military—-Thank You Delta and American from a retiree!!

    Watching this move is a must—get the tissue ready!
