    Enjoyable film, but I don't understand all the praise for it labelling the film as a masterpiece and it really doesn't warrant a spot in the IMDb top 100. 8 years ago

    I agree, the acting of the other cast members isn't really 'all that'. But I enjoyed the movie, nice pace, good story. 5 years 11 months ago

    Essentially Unforgiven in the suburbs, Clint Eastwood stars and directs himself as a grouchy, racist old widower besieged by the Asian community that has taken over his neighborhood. He becomes a hero to them after standing up to their homegrown gangbangers and forges a friendship with his immediate neighbors... There's really nothing here we've never seen before, either as a plot or in Eastwood's other characters. Okay, except perhaps the climax, which makes interesting use of white privilege, but again, isn't actually surprising. And then we're right back into cheesy movie clichés. The Hmong characters don't fare all that well, largely played by non (or new) actors, which lends some authenticity, but can make some scenes heavy-going. And the exposition! Ugh! I make it sound like it's terrible. It isn't. It's just okay and has lots of problems on almost every level. Which is why I'm a little outraged. 4 years ago
