What do you mean by "Epic filmmaking is not Clint Eastwood's thing". I don't think he intended this movie to be epic. An epic movie is something like Star Wars or Lawrence of Arabia. Epic movies are movies that emphasize drama and are very high budget. While the premise of this movie seems like it could be an epic, its not because this movie doesn't focus on mind blowing special effects or an adventure type story.

Have to agree, don't understand this dude's logic, or lack thereof.

I didn't think "epic" while watching this. Hereafter is more of a subtle, ensemble drama with occasional moments of grandeur. Clint does a great job handling this kind of premise. A vastly underrated movie IMO.

You're an epic idiot. If your goal is to attract this much attention for the title of your review, then you've accomplished that. You've also confirmed how inadequate you are.
