    a 50 caliber machine gun in the turret of the leading vehicle in a convoy The convoy came under intense fire but Chance stayed true to his post and returned fire with the big gun covering the rest of the convoy until he was fatally wounded Strobl wrote I was wondering about Chance Phelps Strobl noted in his journal as he waited to begin the work of escorting the remains I didn t know anything about him not even what he looked like I wondered about his family and what it would be like to meet them I did pushups in my room until I couldn t do any more What Strobl found on this journey and what the film shows beautifully was an outpouring of respect tinged with sadness from virtually everyone he encountered along the way baggage handlers at airports fellow commercial plane passengers airline counter personnel funeral home employees and above all the military personnel who took charge of Chance Phelps body in Iraq transported it to Dover and prepared it for burial Fifty year old Kevin Bacon does an exceptional job portraying Strobl Bacon is every ounce the dedicated thoughtful Marine with strong convictions about his place in the Marine Corps about the Iraq war and about the young man whose remains he is entrusted with I felt like this was a story that needs to be told Bacon said in a recent interview It s not just about Iraq but it s about Vietnam and Korea and World War II It s really a story about war and it s told from a really unique perspective The Vietnam War connection is present in the figure of John Phelps played pitch perfectly by the veteran character actor Tom Wopat Chance s father who appears in the last part of the film along with the rest of his family in a stirring scene in which Bacon Strobl delivers the body and Chance s personal effects It s the most moving part of a very moving movie This is a movie by the way that transcends politics It is about the human cost of war It is about the troops It is not pro or anti Iraq War It transcends the individual story of Chance Phelps to tell a universal one that involves anyone who has died in the service of his or her country For tons of info and to see a trailer go to the extensive web site HBO has set up to spread the word Comments Off on HBO s Taking Chance One Great Film Posted on February 20th 2009 in Feature Films Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle Pa New HBO Doc on Richard Holbrooke Jefferson Starship Free Concert in
