Check Point (2017) Script

James Dean was the man.

Everything he did was cool.

The way he walked was cool.

The way he talked was cool.

The way he smoked cigarettes was the coolest.

Can you imagine James Dean smoking one of these fucking things?

Absolutely no cool factor, you know what I'm saying?

You must be... Roy Boyle, right?

Well, this is a good day.

I was hoping I'd get a chance to meet you.

Say you used to be something back in the day.

I mean, personally... no offense, but I just don't see it man. Alright, man.

Let's do this thing.


Yeah, nice to meet you, too.

God, I wish there was something I could do.

Oh, I forgot to tell you.

The other night, a couple nights ago, I saw a shooting star and I made a wish that I could take all of your pain and bury it in the sand.

That's what I wish for.

Oh, no.

I said it out loud!

Now it's not gonna come true!

Oh, crap.

Hey, you must be real proud wearing those dog tags.

They're so shiny.


Hey, guess what today is.

Uh, uh... Is it your birthday?

No, it's not my birthday.

It's Friday, which means China Doll's having her famous dumplings.

I swear to God I can smell them from here.

You... you said you liked that smell, right?

Yeah. I love it, yeah.

Roy, come on!

If we miss out, we'll have to wait another week!


And yet, another American soldier has crossed the border to join forces with the extreme radical terrorist group known as the D-Tag.

Making him the 13th American soldier to engage with the group.

The soldier's identity is currently being kept confidential for the safety of his family.

Recently, the "Death-To-All" group have claimed responsibility for the latest beheading video of photojournalist Taja Raj of Sweden.

Oh, I keep in that.

Yeah, right. There's no way, man.

I am the chess master.

You know what you should do?

You should go back and play checkers, man.

That's more your IQ.

Listen man, I think I'm doing pretty good against you.

I'd say we're about 50/50.

But you know, any time you want to switch off and play a little rummy.

Rummy.

I don't play rummy when you play rummy, not that penny a point Michigan rummy.

That's too much work man for no pay off, come on.

Hey listen man, I'm hitting on down the diner, get something to eat. You want something?

No, no, no. I got to finish this for Larry, man.

He had a bingo jackpot last night and now he's got some cash.

So, I'm going to get some of it.

If you don't mind, I get back to work?

Ah, we got some money, then you can pay me back that

20 bucks he keeps on borrowing.

Not my problem.

I catch you around, man.

I'll be here.

I'll see you tonight. That's a possibility.

Okay, here we are!

Have a very good day. I love you very much.

I love you too.

Oh, you like Suzie's dumplings!

See Kenny? You're a lucky man.

Everybody loves my dumplings.

Of course they like your damn dumplings, that's the only thing you know how to cook.

And don't you got a damn cat or something to save in a tree?

Suzie, you're gonna get us both in trouble now.

Oh, don't worry. Husband no fun.

Hey, how you doing guys?

Oh, morning Sheriff. Morning, Sheriff.

You here for some oi Suzie's dumplings too?

Everybody loves Suzie's dumplings.

See, Kenny?

Cherish your wife's dumplings because we all do.

Go do some damn work, you tall ass.

Leave my wife's dumplings out of this.

Hey woman, don't nobody care about all that.

You just said that last night when I was giving you Godzilla.

Aiya, Godzilla...

Hi, LuAnn. Oh, hi.

You know we can all hear you, right?

I don't give a damn, LuAnn. I can hear everybody.

I got one good damn ear. I can hear that man belch, I can hear him fart, I can hear chewing every damn thing.

Crazy people I work for.

You're fired, but I'm gonna let you know when.

I hope there's not any meat in this thing, because it's Good Friday, and you know I can't eat meat.

I mean, I can but... yeah, don't get me wrong. I love meat, just not today.

What?

Excuse me, I'm try...

Never mind.

Sorry, Jesus.

Are you an ex-marine?

Um, well, I am a marine.

You're never a former or an ex.

Once a marine, always a marine.

Lieutenant Roy Boyle, Special Forces. Very honorable.

Thank you. Though I got to tell you, that Vietnam, phew, that was hard.

Get inside, woman.

LuAnn is having problems with that damn register again.

And I told you to stop feeding these damn bums.

I'm not a bum.

Uh, Grant Hodges.

You sure look like a damn bum, and you got on dog tags like you were a marine.

You weren't no damn marine.

You were.

Look at you now.

You're a damn disgrace. Clean up, boy.

Pitiful.

Pitiful. Oh, come on now.

That ain't necessary.

We're not doing anything wrong.

Oh, is that right?

Let me ask you a question:

Those signs that you and every other vagrant carry, is there some sort of... homeless union code or something on how big the sign should be?

And tell me this:

Where do you all get those magic markers from to write on the sign, and who writes them damn signs?

Stop being a dick, alright? Just stop being a dick.

You've got some mouthful, you street rat.

Oh, you said your piece.

He did nothing wrong to you, okay?

You don't have to rub it in.

If you've got beef, do it with your wife, alright?

My beef is with your ass.

You get your shit together, clean up like I said.

Hey Roy, um... I hope you're not angry with me that I told Suzie that I was you.

It's just that, urn...

I don't know. This is... pretty much the only thing I have in my life that means something to me.

No, that's fine. I'm not angry at all, Grant.

In fact, I'm sure if you're a marine, you'd make a pretty amazing soldier.

Really? Wow. Um, thanks, Roy.

Um, wow. Thank you.

Want these back?

Nah, you keep 'em.

It means more to you than it does to me, okay?


Sit down.

What the hell is all this talking I'm hearing about you knocking people's American flags down off their lawn?

You can't go around doing that just because you're pissed off with the President.

You're a soldier yourself, you all know better than that.

I hear you doing that one more time, I'm going to lock you up for a week, you understand?

Yes, sir.

Alright. Go on, get the hell out of here and go get them damn blueberry pancakes, or whatever the hell it is you eat.

You better watch that cholesterol, boy.

Hello Sunshine, how are you?

What would you like today? Suzie's dumplings, maybe?

Ping-bang-bang-bang Bing-bang-bing-bang.

Ping-pang-ping-pang-ping.

Nobody's gonna give a damn about that.

I'm gonna get me some Rosetta Stone and learn every damn thing you talking.

Against the dying of the light, there can be no mercy for any force blocking his path from his righteousness.

Wife is having a bath.

Is that right'?

Yup.


Got everything you need all packed up and ready to go right here, baby.

What's that?

This is the master plan;

Port's city there...

the battleship...

checkpoint.

Nice.

Let's do this.

Listen, I'm not judging or anything, but the first time should be special, memorable.

It was, Damiano.

15 dollars, 15 minutes.

Melody.

You boppin' strippers now, Fully?

Ooh, who was that? Gonna miss these days?

Yeah, I'll miss it bro. Hoorah.

- Hey.- Hey.- ls there where the party's at?

Yes, ma'am. Come on in.

God damn, woo.

Where's the music at? Turn that music up, boys.

It's time to party.

I see somebody's been partying over here like a sleeping beauty.

Oh, shit! That's my song!

Turn it up, boys!

Woo!

Woo, that's what I'm talking about!

Who's up, who's up?

I need a boy who's awake who can hammer this, alright?

Yeah, Dam! Woo.

I'm up!

Yeah, girl. Hoorah.

Bend it over for me. Bend it over for me.

Yeah, you gonna miss this whore, Dom?

You're gonna miss this, boy. Let me tell you.

Yeah, girl, woo!

What the fuck is wrong with you, bitch?

You've got no shit boy, no shit!

The other day, some group came by and tried to sell me on an idea: building a paintball park on my land so they could play war games.

I mean, who the hell needs that?

Oh, it doesn't sound that bad.

You have a nice piece of land.

So you told me Lincoln was on your land one time?

Well, I mean, that's how all this scuttlebutt started about these tunnels, you know?

So, I guess they connected that with Lincoln.

Oh, that's right, those famous tunnels start right here at your house and end up at the White House shitter.

Yeah, but I'll tell you what, man. It's true.

One of these goddamn things is right here in my basement.

I mean, Larry didn't believe me.

He came by the other day. I showed it to him.

Guy asks a lot of stupid ass questions, man.

Like uh, "You think they can get a golf cart in one of those tunnels?" I mean, how dumb is that?

I don't know.

I think Larry smokes a little too much of that wacky tobacco.

They built the tunnels to help Lincoln escape during the Civil War.

I don't think they had golf carts back in those days.

See, that didn't make any sense at all, what you're saying right there.

Why would Lincoln escape from the White House, come through a tunnel and end up in the heart of Dixie?

It doesn't make any goddamn sense.

I mean, if there are tunnels downstairs, and say there are, there would have to be something a little bit more diabolical about it, otherwise that's just urban legend.

Yeah, that's a possibility.

But I know what I got, dawg.

Did you just call me dawg?

That's urban.

No look man, I mean, let me tell you something.

The land may be silent... but it has a lot to say.

All the memories of all those wars, all the blood spilled on this land? Man.

Well, you're referring to the wars between the Indian tribes or the war between the States?

No, no, no. I'm talking about the big battle of Fort Fisher, man, where the Union soldiers kick the Confederate's ass, and they had this stupid-ass, crazy-ass general named General... um, Bragg.

He tried to burn down the whole goddamn city, man.

He burned down all the supply depots.

But after that, all hell broke loose, man.

There were more wars than you can think of.

Blood was spilled all over this goddamn land.

It's said that all the ponds were running red with blood.

That's true.

I didn't know that.

Alright, buddy. I gotta go.

Come on, man, where you going? Where you going?

I ain't finished yet. I got more to tell you.

Of course you're not finished.

You tell me the same damn story every night.

Yeah, but I'll tell you what, man, it's really sad.

Brothers killing brothers, friends killing friends, that's what's sad.

You're right.

It is sad, brothers killing brothers.

But you know what?

You gotta admire them for sticking to their guns no matter what the cause.

You're right.

See you around, old buddy.

I'm here, dawg.

Okay.


Excuse me, Gunny?

I got something you need to listen to.

Must be a fluke.

They said something about everything's in order, but I don't detect a threat here.

What exactly did you intercept, Corporal?

Uh, transmission stated, battleship is secure, Operation Magenta is a go.

Tunnels need securing and checkpoint 72 hours.

Then static, Gunny.

Have you picked up any other radio chatter about battleships?

Negative. Just this message.

Port City, that's a small tourist town.

They have the U.S.S. North Carolina there.

It's been there since 1962, but... that old girl's nothing more than a museum now.

It sounds like we've stumbled upon some kids playing war games on their walkie-talkies.

Disregard, Corporal. I give it these are no threat.

Roger that. Carry on.


When does Leo report?

Soon.

Get rid of him.


I am pregnant.

What?

Really? Really? Oh!

Do you mind?

May I have your attention, please?

What's up? Knock 'em.

You're hurting me, man.

What are you doing?

Hey, just chill out.

I'm having a little girl.

Oh!

Way to go there. Okay...

You know, you'd like to put a helmet on it.

Okay, as you've heard from the man himself, we should congratulate the Boyle family for your newest announced addition.

Okay?

May you be blessed and loved and... and secure knowing that she has two older brothers to protect her, not to mention two very capable parents.

Okay?

Roy's been my best friend for years.

And tonight, we're celebrating his going-away party again.

Okay? He's headed out there to do what he does best, which is protect this great land of ours.

As you owe me, make us proud my friend because it's seven months, when you return to Port City, father, husband, friend and hero, we'll be here waiting for you.

I'm tearing up already.

Okay?

To Roy Boyle, salute!

Hey Roy, you wanted to take a walk with me?

Um, it might be fun.

Maybe we could hear more about the, uh, the troops coming from the tunnel in the battleship.

No, hey, I'm just gonna crash, man.

Which troops you talking about?

Well, sometimes, when I'm, uh, down at the dumpster, I hear these people talking, and uh... I don't know.

It's probably someone with their TV turned up too loud.

What are they saying?

I think it's the show about the military, um, uh, it's about this battleship that comes up the Potomac and blows up Washington.

And then they kill the President, and uh, take over the country.

Oh, shit.

Underground troops coming up into the White House.

Oh boy, that sounds action-packed, huh?

I wonder if it stars Bruce Willis.

Yeah, it's gotta be TV.

Um, well I'm off.

Uh, you sure you wanna come? Nah. I'm good, thanks.

Hey, buddy. Come here.

Where's Boyle?

Who?

Roy Boyle, the guy you've been hanging out with.

Look mister, I don't know.

Okay. I get it. You're protecting his whereabouts.

I understand that, but you guys don't need to be on the street.

Look mister, I don't want any trouble.

Okay, fair enough.

Tell him to get a hold of TJ.

Farming season is coming up.

I need some extra hands.

I don't pay much.

I could provide you with three hots, a cot, safe bathroom.

Ultimately, it's a safe place to stay.

You guys need to be off the streets.

Okay?

Okay, then. You tell him to talk to TJ.


There's no TV in there.


Hey, you.

Get back here!

Chester, what are you doing here? Everything all right?

Yeah, yeah. I was... gonna ask you the same thing.

You left this behind.

Come on in.

Make yourself at home.

Forgetting your piece?

What's up with that, man?

You getting Alzheimer's or something?

I guess I got a lot on my mind.

Oh, okay.

I mean, it's not that little Asian chick at the diner, is it?

Oh, definitely not her. That was a long time ago, buddy.

Well, you know she's married to a brother?

I wouldn't piss him off, if I was you.

You know what I mean? I don't think he's all there.

Yeah, you're right about that.

What can I say? I'm just feeling a little bluesy.

You don't want me to bust out crying, do you?

No, no. Please don't do that.

Want a drink?

No, no. I can't do that, man.

I gotta go to church tomorrow.

Come on. Here you go.

No, no.

We got a little of that moonshine Corey made.

Come on, brother. No, no, no.

A chill of vanilla?

Here's to our friends who aren't here anymore.

Yeah, I'll drink to that.

Make sure you bring her next week.

Very good. My man, Chester.

Hey, buddy. Yeah.

All thanks to you, my head, huh?

You got my message. Thank you for coming.

Everything alright, Bonnie?

No. I need to talk to you about something serious.

Alright.

Come on.

I'm a bit concerned. This is so unlike her.

Becks is always here. She never misses my services, especially Easter.

When's the last time you saw her?

The middle of last week, she... she won a jackpot on bingo night.

Jackpot?

Maybe her and Larry took the loot and went on down to Myrtle Beach for the night.

I got to run a few errands.

I'll head over there and I'll check in on 'em.

Thank you.

Don't you worry about a thing, Reverend Bonnie.

Thank you very much. - I'll take care of it.

Oh!

You!

Are you alone today?

No, no, no. Come, come. Come with me.

Come. I have something for you.

Come, come. Come.

Here.

Eat some of Suzie's dumplings.

Here you go.

Eat, eat.

Where's little soldier boy today?

You scare me. You give me a heart attack, just like your food.

What did I say to you?

What?

Get inside.

Yeah, whatever. Kung-fu to you, too.

You're damn shame.

You are an embarrassment.

You and your good off rat friend keep digging in my trash can.

I might mistake you for a raccoon and shoot your ass.

You know, raccoon is some good eating.

Pull yourself together.


And that woman with the cleaning.

Every time I walked in, the furniture would be all moved around.

The sofas would be facing the opposite direction of the television.

You know, this beautiful little girl has told me a lot about you.

She did?

Is it... is it good or bad?

Because I feel like I'm nerdy and awkward, and sometimes I can hear people.

Relax. It's all good.

It's everything to do with the amount of homework you give this little girl. Well, okay, then that'd actually be true.

Well, it's a good thing.

Oh, hi. Hi. How are you?

What can I get you this morning?

This'll shock you, but two cheeseburgers.

The first one with fries, strawberry shake, second one with onion rings and a Coke please.

Okay.

Would you like anything to eat?

You know, they have some wonderful dessert.

They have peach cobbler, apple pie...

Oh, I'm sorry. We're all out of peach.

The big deputy, he ate everything. He ate all of it.

Ugh, dufus.

The chick is certifiably crazy.

Certified, huh?

I'm telling you.

I got the shrink bills to prove it.

Stacks.

Go ahead, Sheriff.

I'm going to head on out to Larry and Beck's place.

Copy that. I'll meet you out there in 15.

Gotta go to bounce and Larry coroners.

You got this? I got this.

Alright, cool. I'll buy the beer.

Tea.

Okay. Enjoy-

Okay, so what branch of the service was your husband?

You served? Really?

Yes.

Come on.

Army, medic. Husband?

You haven't been listening at all.

What, do I look like a soldier to you?

She's too beautiful to be a soldier.

My dad was in Iraq, too.

Really?

Easy, Cass. Easy, easy.

Don't talk like that.

Don't drink that too fast or you'll get one of those... ice cream headaches.

Well, tell me about it, soldier.

Not a soldier, doll.

I'm a marine.

That's right.

Marines aren't soldiers are they?

They're marines.

Proud.

Very proud to be a marine.

Desert Storm, trained hand-to-hand combat expert, part of the team that launched the first Patriot missile.

So I mean, there's absolutely no question I am a very proud marine.

There was a struggle in the other room as well.

It looks like they fought, he drowns her, then he comes in here and swallows his pistol.

No, definitely not a domestic squabble.

They were both murdered.

What's with the playing cards?

Must be some kind of a message.

Alright, get a hold of forensics.

Get them over here.

I want this place gone over with fine toothcomb.

TVNN has learned of yet another video circulating the Internet by the day.

Even though the video is censored, TVNN is warning the nature of this video is intended for mature audiences due to the horrific execution of 12 American hostages being tortured and violently killed.

TVNN apologizes for the graphic nature of this video.

Grant, where are you?


These are unidentified soldiers.

If anyone can identify the soldiers, please contact the TVNN help desk immediately.


Roy. ROY!

Somethings wrong.

Over here, buddy. Something's wrong.

What's up?

Go to the television, dude. It's got the executions.

Hold on. Slow it down.

Go to the TVNN site.

I think it's going down here.

You're telling me that the executions are happening here in Port City?

Yes. Really?

Dude, it's happening... Have you lost your mind?

Dude, we have something living here in Port City.

ROY -

TJ, TJ!

Go to the TVNN site, check it out! Did you see it!?

I did not see it.

I'm telling you...

I don't know what you're talking about.

It's going down here... I have no idea.

TJ, it's going down here.

The executions, I think they're happening here.

Here! You've lost it, man.

You need to believe me. You've lost it, dude.

We have something living here in Port City.

We have something living here in Port City.

Please calm down and come back to reality.

Think about what you're saying.

Think about what you're saying, man.

This is Port City. The little Port City.

Honest to God, we're on American soil.

That does not happen on American soil.

Okay?

No, I know what I saw.

I saw what I saw.

I saw it!

I saw it! I saw it! TJ.

I saw it! I saw it! It's happening here, TJ.

TJ!

Here, have some of Suzie's dumplings.

Where's little soldier boy today?

Daddy, look! It's uncle Roy!

I know it was you!

You did this!

It was you!

Ah, crazy!

I know it's you!

You did this!

Let go of me!

You're not listening to me!

It was you!

You did this! What the hell is going on?

Hey, hey, hey, hey!

Stop this shit right now.

You did it! This is why we don't feed... the damn bums, baby. You did this!

Stop this shit.

Bitch!

Look, I understand why you're hurting.

You miss him.

I get it, bro.

But you got to snap back to reality.

Look, go check... go to the TVNN site, check the video.

Why would I make something like this up?

Is that all you've got to say to me?

Is it?

My daughter is worried to death about you, and so is everybody else.

You've been living on the street for 18 months now.

18 months and this is...

They were killed, okay?

Our brothers.

Something... something is not right here in America's backdoor.

Easy, Roy. No one here is the enemy.

Go on. Go check it out.

Go!

ROY -

Roy, do you understand what you're saying?

You're accusing our town of some kind of homegrown terrorism?

That's nuts.

People we see every day?

People we love?

That's crazy talk, man, just crazy talk.

I know what I saw.

I know what I saw.

Grant was onto something.

Grant, the man talks to walls.

Don't judge!

Check it out!

Do some police work instead of being a party-fighter for the sake of our town.

Fine. I'll check it out.

But if nothing else can calm you down...

And yet another American soldier has crossed the border to join forces with the extreme radical terrorist group known as the D-Tag.

Making him the 13th American soldier to engage with the group.

The soldier's identity is currently being kept confidential for the safety of his family.

Recently, the Death-To-All group have claimed responsibility for the latest beheading video of photojournalist Tajah Raj of Sweden.

In other world news, the World Summit Meeting will move forward as originally planned for early-May.

This is the first time each head of state will be meeting together at the White House.

Expect super gridlock and high volume of security during this three-day event.

Your sandwich is almost ready, Tom.

Thank you, sweetheart.

You alright?

It's been a rough kind of day.

My one friend turned up dead and I had to put another one in jail, a lot on the brain.

Oh, hi!

Deputy Parks told me you would be here.

Baby girl, I'll have the usual.

What you up to, Thomas?

Not what you think.

Yeah, yeah right.

Oh, you got the controls. What, do you own the place?

Home away from home, dawg.

Chinatown, what can I get you?

Classic martini.

Gin or vodka?

Vodka.

Vodka.

Olive?

Twist.

Make it a twist.

You got it.

Ah, Sheriff.

You remembered my drink, impressive.

How can I forget?

Yes, ma'am.

Brother is gonna be pissed, man.

You know, the two of you men together are like schoolchildren.

It's very sweet.

Oh, we've known each other 32 years.

32 years?

Man, you never could count.

It's more like 42.

I've known you since kindergarten.

I'm the only black friend you got, man.

Sheriff, Kenny and I talked and... we don't want to press charges.

This poor man has been through so much.

We don't want to damage him anymore.

Maybe he should see a doctor or something.

That's very nice to hear.

I got to get going-

Donna, you got that sandwich ready?

It's right here, Tom.

Let me get a round of tequilas for everybody.

You got it.

Here you go.

Thank you.

Alright. Drink up, everybody. Have a good day.

See you, Thomas.

Have a nice one, dawg.


Hey?

Suzie?


Suzie?

Suzie?

Oh, hi.

What are you doing here?

Are you okay?

So thoughtful.

What are you doing? What the hell?


Let me go and I'll tell you!

I'll tell you!

Let me go!

You tell me first and I'll let you go.

Okay.

Okay, okay.

The Sheriff... the Sheriff... go to Chester's house is the checkpoint, okay?

See? I tell you. Now you let me go.

I'm sorry, I can't.


I ain't a part of this.

Someone's right.

The street rat came in and then the Sheriff popped up in the alley to talk to her, and then she snuck off to the bar.

She fed a lot of people.

She sneaked food out to the back to women and then they vanished.

I didn't think nothing of it at first.

Hell, I didn't even know that we owned this.

But she didn't know that I could read lips.

Today, the Sheriff came by and he told her to get ready, and that they'll meet at the checkpoint.

So, what do we do?

I know someone... he'll know what to do.

I checked out your story.

I dug around. And?

I got to wait for the Sheriff.

He'll know what to do with this, who to call.

This is state police, military maybe.

What'd you find out?

You're right, okay?

I found something.

What? Well, what'd you find out, Freddy?

You're out of here.

What'd you find out?

I found these behind the dumpster.

This isn't a coincidence.

What's going on, fellas?

Oh, I'm just talking to Roy.

How's it going, buddy?

Hey, man. I got you.... one of your favorite sandwiches.

Sorry about having to slip it through the bar.

Roast beef, no Swiss cheese, pickle, a little bit of mayo and a cookie cola to wash it down.

Probably haven't had one in a long time.

You don't wanna eat that all, do you?

Take it easy there, big boy.

He eats in his own time.

You know, Roy...

it's a good thing folks around here still like you.

I just spoke with Suzie and... her and Kenny aren't going to press charges.

Now, I gotta tell you something, you're really around here.

Nowadays, you're just scaring the hell out of everyone.

All this talk about townsfolk killing soldiers.

It's like yelling "fire" in a crowded movie theater.

You just don't do that.

You don't put the people in a panic frenzy.

I know.

What the hell's going on, son?

Sheriff, I think you...

You just hold on there, Freddy.

I'm trying to talk to Roy.

I wish I could say I understand you Roy, but I don't.

But I want to tell you this.

You need to get your shit together, son, and be able to stand back up on your feet.

You're right.

I think I have just been tired.

I was wrong for my actions.

I need to clean up my act.

Roy? Roy, what are you doing?

What do you mean about that, Deputy?

You got something on your mind?

Sheriff, Roy was correct.

I checked into what he said.

Well, Roy just told me he was fabricating a whole story, now it happened?

Freddy, it's okay.

I just need rest.

Okay? I've been tired.

I'm tired.

He can handle this.

Well, somebody better start talking plain here.

I found these.

My, my.

Lordy, Lordy. I sure wish you hadn't done that, Freddy.

What just happened?

Hey, put the gun down.

You go downstairs and lock the door.

What just happened?

What just happened?

What just happened is a sacrifice in a cause that is long overdue.

What? What are you talking about?

This was not my intention, but it is a necessary evil in the execution of our great revolution.

Dude, you're not making any sense.

Oh, I'm making more sense than anybody has in a long time.

God...

It's time for America to rise from the ashes.

Are you out of your mind?

Are you even...

The day has finally come when justice shall be served, and the new and greater America will rise from the ashes.

Seriously, are you out of your mind!?

No, I've never known greater clarity.

And you served this country, and so did I.

I have held good American boys in my arms and watched them die, and for what?

To serve the whims and the financial interest of gutless, greedy politicians.

Politicians who would pick the pockets of all good Americans, while they fill their own coffers with gold, earned by the blood of better men.

So are you telling me you just killed Freddy, and Grant, and the others, because you're pissed off at the government?

You are not listening to me, Roy.

Deputy Parks had to die because he could never be a part of this cause.

And before this night is over, many will perish.

Scores will fall, friends and family will be sacrificed for a greater, noble cause.

So, you just killed innocent soldiers to prove a freaking point?

There are no innocents!

Military or civilian, the day has finally come for all good Americans to take up a rifle and fight for this cause or die in its wake.

Blood will run through the streets and the valleys of this nation so that this country can be free again.

Listen to me Roy, I want you to be a part of us, Roy.

I want you to sit down and I want you to think about what I'm saying to you, son.

They have done you wrong.

There's a greater goal and there's a greater reason.

You're out of your mind.

TVNN is warning the nature of this video is intended for mature audiences due to the horrific execution of 12 American hostages being tortured and finally killed.

So tell me again what happened.

I would like you to be part of our fight, brother.

You... you were a Special Forces lieutenant.

You took the oath.

You served this country with honor and distinction, and what did they do for you?

Nothing.

On the day that you were supposed to be discharged, they told you what? You don't have a home to go back to.

It was all swept away by a tornado, and your pregnant wife, and your children, and even your parents who happened to be there visiting on the day of the terrible tragedy were all killed.

That callous and heartless decision took a piece of your soul away that you will never get back.

You come and you be a member of my family, Roy, a family that will take back this nation from the filthy ideologues that sit on both sides of the table and give it back to we the people.

So you and Stacks think you're going to go up against this country?

Dude, you're insane.

You're insane. We're not alone.

There are thousands just like us, trained and eager to fight upon my word.

You know, it's a little late to rewrite the constitution.

Thomas Jefferson said that when a government can no longer serve its people, then it is the duty of its citizen to rise and revolt, and that we shall so.

As we speak... tonight the Great North Carolina will deploy and sail right into Washington and lay siege upon the capital.

This is real.

Dang it

We need to do something.

Let's go get ROY-

Oh, so you think you can just, what, steal an old battleship and go unnoticed, just sail up there like that?

You forgot what country you live in.

Oh, what? Everyone thinks I'm crazy because I chose to live off the grid?

Sir, you are bat shit crazy.

It's a new system, a new government; from the people, for the people.

We're going to be heroes to the people.

No, you ain't no hero, man. You're a punk.

Goddamn terrorists breathing free air, the freedom that our brothers of arms defend for you.

You're a bunch of sadistic traitor asses.

Yeah, it's truly what you should your army.

Traitors.

You know, I would have more respect for you if you crossed the border and joined some other radical group and jumped on the hate everyone bandwagon.

But planning something like this on your own land against your own people, taking innocent lives because you think worthy?

Punk.

You're a punk.

You have a lot of heart, Roy.

And I would've loved that you join us in this fight.

But I suppose it's best that you die with the others so that this great country may be reborn.

They heard the gunshot. They want to speak to you.

Prepare to meet your maker, son.

Fuck!

Alright, folks, listen up. Everything is fine.

One of our deputies discharged his weapon. Nobody's hurt.

But I saw Suzie get attacked by someone dressed in black.

And I heard a gunshot from the diner and We. been closed since noon.

Look, I don't know what you saw, what you think you saw, but everything is going to be alright.

I want you all to go home and stay home.

Come morning, everything's going to be fine, alright? Now get.

Go on, get.


GO, get in!

Yeah, I got good memories when I was a kid, you know, going camping, playing stickball.

Was great times, man.

Tennis ball or handball?

Handball, man.

We used to bat... baseball bat.

It was sewer play to sewer play.

It was your home run, you know?

And we always challenged all the kids from the neighborhood, you know?

It was the Boyle boys versus all.

I don't get it, you guys and your freaking stickball dude.

It seemed like a different world back then.

Yeah, man.

I got great memories.

Uh, you know, my...

I remember when my brother came home from leave, go out there in the living room, hang out on the carpet and we'd play with those little green army men.

It was the coolest time ever.

I'll never forget it. Yeah.

I miss him.

It was really awesome.

I mean, I got some wonderful memories up here.

I bet you did.

You kept in touch with the boys, any at all, since you've been back?

My brothers?

One I think lives near Portland, Oregon, and the other one... somewhere in New York last I heard.

How about you?

You know that.

Cassandra was three years old, Amanda left us.

Yeah. I know, but I mean, what happened?

It's tough. It's tough.

When Cassandra was born, Amanda was... she was hooked on drugs, man.

It was really tough.

I mean, when you... when you find out your spouse is cheating on you... everything goes south really quick, man.

It-it turns everything completely upside down.

She took a trip to New York City, hang out with a friend of hers, hooked up with this thug, man.

I mean, to say irresponsible would be a... would be a fucking understatement.

I mean, she turned her back on her family.

You know how tough it is being a single parent?

You know how tough it is being me and raising a little girl?

You got a great little girl, man.

I got a good girl, that girl over there.

She's my angel.

Here you go, uncle Roy.

I cut off the ends like you like.

Oh man... thank you.

Thank you.

Look at you.

She's my angel.

You say you got a plan. Let's hear it.

I got a plan.

For damn sure I've got a plan.

You know, my job has got its perks.

Okay?

I make the rounds.

And through making the rounds, I can figure out who has got the same likes as I do or the same dislikes as I do.

In fact, this Chester, he must have an armament over there.

Each month, he gets a new toy in.

Okay, but what good does that do, as if they're meeting on Chester's land?

We don't even know if Chester's down with this or not.

Oh, because Chester's a brother, he must be down with it.

Okay, here's a newsflash.

Sheriff White McWhiteMan turned out to be the head devil in charge.

So, maybe the brother is clean.

Chester keeps his guns in a shop in the back in this cabinet.

I mean, one time I took cover from the rain.

I saw it there. It's easy to get into.

He's got an arsenal, man.

That's an asset.

Okay, but what about the battleship?

Yeah, what about that?

Battleship?

Okay guys, here's the plan.

Ship's here, okay? We go in.

We take out the power supply instantly.

It's an old ship. Everything shuts down.

Okay? Clear the ship from bottom to top.

Okay. That's the plan.

Right now, the most important damn thing, everybody get their ass in gear, get out of here, grab everything you need and be back within two hours.

Alright.

Let's do it. Let's go.

For the love of country.

Shit.

Holy shit.

You know I'll be back. I know that, dad.

I love you. I love you more.

Hey baby... make sure you call uncle Eddie.

Hello? This is Commander Bower.

Hi uncle Eddie.

Cassandra?

Hold on. TJ's going where?

Okay, okay, okay. I'm sending a recon team.

Don't worry.


Becca, take the over watch.

Follow the breach, TJ.

Did you bring ball cutters?

Fuck no, didn't bring them.

Fuck. Do your thing, bro.

Go, go, go!

Go, go! GO, g0, go! GO!


Move!

Go go go go!


Fuck!


James Dean was the man.

Everything he did was cool.

The way he walked was cool.

The way he talked was cool.

The way he smoked too, it was the coolest.

Can you imagine James Dean smoking one of these fucking things?

Absolutely no cool factor, you know what I'm saying?

You must be... Roy Boyle, right?

Well, this is a good day.

I was hoping I'd get a chance to meet you.

Say you used to be something back in the day.

I mean, personally... no offense, but I just don't see it, man.

Alright, man.

Let's do this thing.


Yeah, nice to meet you too.


Hey!

Rebecca and Kenny cleaned the lower deck.

Upper deck's clear.

Corner deck's clear, man.

Thanks for being here for me.

You good?

I'm good.

You good?

I'm good. I'll be alright.

Alright, I'm gonna have Kenny and Becca.

Meet us at 0400 hours at checkpoint.

0400 checkpoint, got you. You got it?

Yeah. Right there.

Let's finish this thing, goddamnit.


Thomas?

What's up, man? Who are all these people?

What are you doing with all these equipment, man?

What's that about?

I'm sorry for everything.

I'm so sorry.

Alright, secure the perimeter!

I don't want anybody getting in or out!

I want this completely locked down!

We have 18 hours to get to checkpoint B in Virginia if that map Larry put together is correct.

What about the North Carolina?

Boat's about 80 miles an hour and on point.

No, it's not a boat, it's a battleship, alright?

Who is our contact in Virginia?

Malloy. James Malloy, 1st Cavalry.

I know Malloy. It's good to know you're friends.

You better know your enemies.

Let's go!

What in the fuck have we got into?

I don't know what the fuck we got into, but I know how the hell we're getting out of it.

I got left flank.

Alright, I'll get to them. Get to them.

Well, let's do this.

Right up, guys. You stay close, this is going down now.

Contact!

My ass.

You're both my bitches.

Oh, you're back now, huh? Come on, let's go!

Cover us, girl.


Reckon you're gonna drop that weapon you little hussy.


You fucking traitor.

Come on. Come on!

Who are you? Are you one of them?

I'm a soldier.

Alright, you got a lot of bleeding here.

I'll be back.

Kenny!

Kenny!


This is Bishop-36.

- Be advised. Be advised up.

They're behind us!

Agh!


Agh!

Friends killing friends for what?

I forgive you, Thomas.


Steven...

James...

Nicole...
