JS has HEART
The more I watch this escapist flicker the more it grows on me;
the character Jake is made of "sterner stuff" and he exemplifies the pulp hero of yesteryear be it Doc Savage,Jack Armstrong,Jungle Jim,Tim Tyler,etc.This guy has purpose ! He is "not" an anti-hero which has been the fad for decades now.He is a throwback to Teddy Roosevelt,Tom Mix and others rolled into one.
He's retro,but he's more than Indy Jones and his manic drive for precious relics ! He is a rescuer of "lost causes,"the beknighted and the little person who is trampled underfoot. We need a re-boot and splash even bigger, better if possible to grab a whole new generation that needs a role model to emulate.
