What if you could re-imagine “Hamilton” as an animated historical comedy-gorefest, complete with a chainsaw-wielding George Washington (Channing Tatum), a beer-inventing frat boy Sam Adams (Jason Mantzoukas), a one-armed, bitterly anti-colonial Geronimo (Raul Max Trujillo), a scientist named Thomas Edison (Olivia Munn), who turns out to be “America: The Motion Picture,” directed by Matt Thompson (“Archer”) and released just in time for Independence Day, has pop culture allusions and, for some reason, super-buff founding fathers, and bears some resemblance to “Team America: World Police” (2004).
Washington gathers a squad to defeat King James (Simon Pegg) and his army, aided by the hotly-drawn Martha (Judy Greer), who name checks the Lincoln Log. Paul Revere, who wears armor and rides a beautiful horse named Clyde, is enlisted by Washington and his companions. What about a box with a hand flipping the bird inside? King James is a vile glutton who never gets off his rocket-propelled throne and is reminiscent of Darth Vader. He kidnaps Martha and diabolically steeps her in tea in order to transform her into a British woman (Right?). The entire cast is burdened with laughable speech, speaking of horses. Only Samberg succeeds in being humorous due to the absurdity of the voice he makes for Arnold. We receive a lot of jokes about that. IMDB
