I was unable to see this movie when it was released as I was quite preoccupied with more important matters than watching movies. It was something that stayed with me for quite some time as something to do in the future.
When I was able to get a DVD I was thrilled and I saw it earlier this evening with excellent company, and Nandu, home popped pop corn and soft drinks.
Clint Eastwood did not let me down. The storyline was very believable and the direction taught. The characters came alive and it was riveting from the start to the finish. The dialogue, simple and powerful. The climax scene was worth a great deal for originality as I was expecting heroics. The overall experience was one of total satisfaction and I give it.
