I liked the way Clint Eastwood played retired
F.B.I. agent Terry McCaleb, popping heart pills all the way.
Terry's recovering from a heart attack,
so kicking down doors isn't so easy now, but manages to employ
his trademark with plenty of action, empathy, and humor. I'm
sure this will satisfy long-time fans.
This film addresses aging, obsession, and
justice. It has a well-chosen supporting cast, and most everyone
will be pleased with the results of this summer thriller.
No one directs Clint like Clint, in this
no-nonsense look at an aging F.B.I. profiler chasing a serial
killer through an improbable plot.
Surrounded by a fine cast (including a
cameo by wife Dina) with some nice comedy interludes (some unintentional).
The true surprise of this film comes when
Clint removes his shirt--is this recent heart transplant patient
really going to have sex?
Enjoyably absurd. A hesitant scissors up.
Clint Eastwood takes the role of a retired
F.B.I. profiler who's just had a heart transplant. This could
have been an obstacle for most action thrillers, but it actually
made the star look more human and real.
The writer tells a good, complex story
with interesting people and with a first-rate cast.
may be a literal affair of the heart, but it's not about feelings
evolving, it's about justice in an unusual set of circumstances.
I really liked the satisfying ending--it
has warmth and tenderness that slowly builds into family love
at the end of the movie.
