    A must see!!!

    If this is the last big thing he does on the big screen, it's more than enough!

    I am looking forward to it. The GREAT thing is that my Dad used to own that car. Same color and stripe. I remember vomiting in it when I was 7.

    After having met Mr. Eastwood several years ago, I will definately spend the $ to support his movies. He is a first class gentleman.

    Not a great movie by Eastwood's standards, typical liberal view points that have been standards for the past 30 years,old white war vet who dislikes immigrants but grows to love them because he sees the error of his ways. Wait and see it on tv.

    Personally I go to a movie for entertainment not to be enlightened, but I will add some good spots to movie but nothing like Forgiven. Just my 2 cents.

    I saw it yesterday. Eastwood's performance was very good. Everyone else looked like rookie actors so their performances were kindo wooden.

    The racist, hatefilled, self loathing Korean war vet gains enlightenment and redemption through self sacrifice.

    No regrets in seeing it. 2 1/2 stars. Not as good as Unforgiven or Outlaw Kosie Wales but worth a gander.
