One movie reminded me that whilst some items on the ‘bucket list’ may have not yet been achieved, due to variety of reasons, it is never too late to review your ambitions.
The movie was ‘Never Too Late’, which was released in July 2020. It is a story of people needing to escape the Hogan Hills Retirement Home for Returned Servicemen and Women, in order to realise their dreams before it’s too late.
Without giving away the story line, there is the ‘never too late’ marriage proposal, along with a father and son who have had a trip planned for many years, and men who are focussed on exacting revenge on one of their captors from the Vietnam war.
It has been a long time since Caine, Bronson, Angus and Wendell, aka, 'The Chain Breakers', escaped the torturous Vietnamese POW camp.
They now find themselves sharing a new prison, The Hogan Hills Retirement Home for Returned Veterans. Each of the boys has an unrealised dream they want to achieve before it's too late. So, once again they band together to devise a plan to escape this new hell. But the rules of engagement have changed, in fact, they can't even remember what they were and that's half the problem.
Watching this film made me realise that it is never too late to review your ‘bucket list’, and look seriously at what can be achieved within a realistic time frame, given any current issues that may be impacting on you.
