Starring: Clint Eastwood and a bunch of other people I had never seen before.
Synopsis: Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) is a Korean War vet living in a Detroit neighborhood that has seen an increase in the amount of Asian people living there. Walt bonds with his next door neighbor as he protects him from a local Asian gang.
Review: This movie was just OK. The acting was somewhat sub par and I am usually a Clint Eastwood fan. He may just be getting a little too old. The movie was not supposed to be funny but I found myself laughing often (not really in a good way). Walt is extremely racist and makes some sort of offensive comment every 5 minutes. I understand that this is who his character is supposed to be but it got a little ridiculous at one point. Not to mention, if some old man was walking around calling me and my family swamp rats he would have at least gotten cursed out, if not slapped.
The acting of the other characters was low quality and I did not connect with them. The parts that were supposed to be moving weren't because I did not find the acting believable. They were unable to evoke any emotion from me. I also didn't particularly like the ending of the movie and whenever I don't like the ending it just pretty much ruins it for me. Oh and Clint Eastwood growled through the entire movie which was kind of annoying.
The only reason I didn't give the movie a lower grade is because it IS Clint Eastwood and he IS a great actor. I just think the movie would have been better if the other actors in the movie had been better.
