Director Todd Robinson’s latest movie, The Last Full Measure, is scheduled for theater release on January 24, 2020. It features a star cast that includes Sebastian Stan, Christopher Plummer, Samuel L. Jackson, William Hurt, Ed Harris, Peter Fonda, John Savage and Jeremy Irvine.

Unlike any war genre film, The Last Full Measure focuses on the heroic true story of Air Force special operations during the Vietnam War.

There is very little about this topic in writing or on screen, so you won’t want to miss this film. The film recounts the true story of William Pitsenbarger, a U.S. Air Force Pararescueman, who continually faced danger throughout more than 250 combat missions in Vietnam.

During a rescue mission on April 11, 1966, he was offered the chance to escape on the last helicopter out of a combat zone that was under heavy fire. He chose to stay behind to save and defend the lives of his fellow soldiers from the U.S. Army’s 1st Infantry Division. He was killed doing so.
