    It's may not be as thoughtful as Eastwood recent work but it's a real crowd pleaser isn't it?
    I thought early on on the movie it became apparent how it was going to turn out but that didn't diminish my enjoyment of the movie especially Eastwood's performance.(Hard to believe that the role wasn't written for him.There aren't to many senior citizens that could make you believe they could kick gangster butt).

    Good movie peat maybe in my top five for the year but Number 1 is still Slumdog Millionaire .

    I really despised it.
    The white man teaches the barbarians about civilisation and uses his gun as intellectual leverage.

    Like I said it's more of a straight action film than what Eastwood has been doing lately but I thought it was rather the other way around.

    The whole cast is great , from the snotty grandkids to the Asian grandma . Just the way the grown sons interact with the old man is worth a look .

    every other word was a curse word and i fucking loved it. clint played a perfect role. there wasn't anything i didn't like about this film minus the ending, but then again he's 79 years old so c'mon... 10/10

    Well you can look at it that way, but it teaches you that racism is ignorance, he didn't know nothing about that group of people and he hated them, but when ge got to know them, everything changed in his life and his way of thinking. So we are never to old to change.
