Cool actor, I'll probably wait for the DVD, though its good to see him back infront of the camera.

I saw that it said it is only playing at select theaters...so that means not everyone will get it at theirs. I wanted to know why it was Rated R-it says for language and violence. I wondered how violent it could be...when I have seen The Dark Knight and there are other PG-13 movies-that should be Rated R over violence, and they aren't. So, I am never sure anymore on what makes them rate movies the way they do.

ISIS,

Playing in select theaters is for the early release. Then, it's sent to all theaters. They do this as a teaser to get a buzz going about a movie. It also lets them track what the audience thinks of the movie so they can change things around if they have to before it goes nationwide. I would assume the "R" rating is for strong language and some violence. He plays a racist bitter old war veteran who (probably uses a lot of racist profanity) changes his ways...

I think it's gonna be good! [Smile]

I think it comes out in all theaters on Friday.

My son said that he thinks Clint Eastwood is up for an award already for his performance in this movie.

They still haven't got it at my movie theater yet, I talked to the guy who runs the projector and he said it's really in demand, and they are trying to get a print of it.

How bad is it? Is the violence and the language bad?

My son asked if he could see it, I never have taken him to a Rated R movie ...he's seen a few of them, but I have seen them first...I am scared of going to a movie that I haven't seen yet....but I would hate to pay twice for the same movie- if it isn't that bad- and if it really is good...then it would be cool to see on the big screen.

Can someone give me an HONEST answer as to the content?

I have a print of it. PM me if you want me to send you a copy on dvd. I watched it two nights ago and it was pretty darn good in my opinion.

I really liked the movie and tried not to be critical...but the acting, from almost every person except Clint, was absolutely horrible...in my opinion.

Oh geez.....if you thought that...I am sure I will think that....uugh.....that's part of my problems I have with new movies, is everything seems so fake, and scripted, and like a movie-and not a real thing that could be happening.

I love movies that feel like your watching a real thing happening, someone's real life, and that it doesn't feel like every word out of their mouth is scripted.

Today's actors are too "aware" of being on camera, that they don't act natural, or they over act and it just comes across so phoney.
