Eastwood should try his hardest to make this one disappear. There was nothing good about this movie at all. Nothing worked. Poor direction, no chemistry between him and Sheen, and just plain blah!!!!!! Clint made a poor choice by being involved in this one. The action sequences were not enjoyable and the rape scene was just plain stupid!! I sometimes wonder if actors recognize a dog prior to the release. I am sure this one was doomed from the start. I cannot see how this one made any money at the box office at all. If it did I am sure it was because of the names involved. I would not waste the time or money on this one. Clint has always been my favorite and everyone is entitled to one bad movie. This one fits the bill. If you rent The Rookie make sure it's the baseball movie with Dennis Quaid!!!!!!
