TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE
My wife, our friend & I enjoyed it. One of the main reasons I enjoyed it is I love Clint Eastwood. My question is, "How long can Clint keep playing a cantankerous old man with a raspy voice?" Here in "TWTC", he again plays a grumpy old man part and does it really well. But two movies in a row (Torino), may be a bit much. It was well written, along with the expert direction, camera angles & continuity editing made it an enjoyable movie easy to follow.. Eastwood's captivating performance along with the wonderful talents of Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, & John Goodman, make you actually feel their character's up & down frustrations & emotions. This all brought the movie to LIFE, even got my emotions activated.
The only thing that caught MY eye was the ending.. I won't give it away, but in the last few minutes, everything seemingly came together with UNBELIEVABLE circumstances. It was like they needed to finalize the movie, so they dreamed up this "ah come on" climax.
