Critic Review - eFilmCritic.com

This is Eastwood's weakest work in years, perhaps because it yokes itself to a hot-button theme instead of a story that resonates.

this story does resonate dude. i don't understand your reasoning. i know it's your opinion but if you can't admit it's a good film, then you are indeed not fit to be a movie critic by any means.

Your critic confuses me. You seem to be trying very hard not to like it.

Actually, it's Eastwood's best film. Just goes to show what an opinion is worth

The critic was just mad because the ending made him sad.....and it wasent a perfect happy ferry-tale story like he was probably expecting.

You, Mr. Gonsalves, might quite possibly be the biggest idiot on earth.

Weakest work that won him best director and best picture?? You're a fucking idiot. This is a GREAT movie. You obviously have low to little self esteem, and you have to be different than other critics who have raved about this great film. Fuck off!!!

Couldn't agree with your review more, Rob. It's funny how the only reviewer's critique's that are commented on by RT browsers are the rotten ones and that they are always, inevitably in disagreement with the reviewer's opinion. I guess the general public only looks up movie's on RT that they are in favor of, so that they can feel validated by all the other positive reviews they find here. Anyways, a well constructed movie, but very formulaic in my opinion. Solid, but nothing new here, just a bunch of recycled material.
