    Why does this get so much praise? It's poorly made in the sense that there's not a moment of the film that isn't trying to shove racial tolerance and good will into your face, which makes the whole thing difficult to watch. The positives are a good performance from Eastwood and good cinematography. The negatives are an emotionally manipulative script, extreme racism, shitty acting from almost everyone else, and too many "haha look the old guy is racist" moments. This film could have been great with a better script and a better grasp at racism.

    Grouchy widower helps young boy resist gangs, become honest red-blooded Amurican. I tend to feel that the narrative of adorable-racist-coot-is-actually-a-big-hearted-hero was worn out circa 'All in the Family', though there are some scattered (and very easy) laughs here. It's pure schmaltzy bullshit -- straw characterization like that of our hero's disrespectful family members is a major pet peeve of mine, and crops up throughout Eastwood's filmography -- but basically harmless.

    "I'm proud to be able to call you my friend."

    One of Eastwood's masterpieces: Unforgiven isn't Eastwood's last western, this is. Street gangs replace warring factions of a town, the youngest is pulled in-between, a priest mediates all conflict. And Eastwood himself is almost Fordian. He's a good-bad man, he rejects all emotion, he accepts his killer past....and one day, "like Paul on the road to Damascus," he changes. Through this Eastwood achieves his most sustained masterclass in economy. We're…

    How on earth did we all warm to this story of a belligerent, racist war veteran back in 2008 (Me Included)? Granted Eastwood is fantastic here but the constant use of "gooks" and "zipperheads" starts to wear thin after a while.

    The whole old-school alpha male thing teaching the young Hmong boy to be a man just felt obvious this time around, and Walt's sacrifice to release Thao from the gang is a rather simplistic, cowboy solution to a wider…

    Love this movie , very powerful story that always has me in tears at the end. The messages of racial prejudice and the impact of war are handled well and with some wit. This could have easily been tweaked a little bit and been the last dirty harry movie. Just replace the korean war with harry's time on the force, Would have been fitting for Callahan to bow out the way walt did as well. Still amazing film

    This would be an automatic five star film if Clint ever produced a directors cut that's just two solid hours of close ups of his character grunting and looking disapprovingly at things.
