Rating: Kinda Sucked
‘Hey, a new Clint Eastwood film! Let’s go, you know it’s going to be good.”
How wrong was I?
The first thing that came to mind when this movie ended was “great concept; horrible execution” People leaving the theater momentarily bonded in their disappointment in this film. It’s an even bigger disappointment when you consider that it’s a Clint Eastwood film; though in fairness I don’t believe he wrote it, only directed and produced.
What you’ll hate:
-Surprisingly bad directing
-Very slow paced, the movie drags big time
-Most of the subplots of the movie aren’t even important to the story, but take up much of the film, had they been removed, it would have sped up the film and helped to better focus it
What you may like:
-Great, believable characters
-Good opening scene
Definitely not a movie I would recommend spending money on, honestly I’d like the two and a half hours (including commercials for car insurance and other nonsense) of my life back. It’s more disappointing than most bad films because it was almost good.
Let me know what you thought,
