If it wasn’t for my status as president of the Amy Adams Appreciators of America (AAAA for short), I’d have given this a 1 here.
These films seem to be Clint Eastwood’s weird way of dealing with his personal fears about growing old and obsolete, and aside from careers, his characters in them are pretty indistinguishable.
Not as dark as the other two Clint Eastwood movies I’ve reviewed so far. I’ll give it that.
Since I’m from “The Carolinas” as this film loved to call them, I noticed the Sun Drop billboard and the Mellow Mushroom pizza box. (A little Cheerwine and Hardee’s and we’d have had the whole set!)
Those were probably just used to add “local southeastern US flavor”, so I’ll be “lenient” and only take one point off, since there’s quite a bit throughout the film, and I’m “contractually obligated” to acknowledge it.
Yes, there are a lot of quotation marks in this section.
This film had a much lighter tone than Gran Torino or Million Dollar Baby, but I still wasn’t that interested.
