Something to Stand For

Something to Stand For

Drawing from his blockbuster podcast “The Way I Heard It”, this cinematic tour de force will take viewers to the frontlines of the American Revolution, World War II, the Civil Rights movement, and more. Part mystery, part history – each harrowing tale tells a story you’ve never heard, about the patriots who built our country. From the legendary rebels we call the “Founding Fathers” to unknown Marines of Iwo Jima – these are the Americans who risked everything to build the country we love and call home. The American heroes who gave us… something to stand for!

    Refreshing and enjoyable.
    Mike Rowe has always been an excellent storyteller and this movie was a great vehicle for that. Speaking of vehicles: the old Bronco definitely fit Mike's personality.

    There were several vignettes that spoke to the backstory of American history. I learned a lot and it made me appreciate our historical figures all the more. Abe Lincoln called out in a dual with broadswords, Wow, Abe was a master at diplomacy.

    Several of the historical stories were initially framed in modern times so as to demonstrate the absurdity compared to today's standards. Freedom was not free.

    Mike definitely needs to make another one of these movies.
