Okay
1 June 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a decent but completely unremarkable retrospective of Clint Eastwood movies -- at least of his work at Warner Brothers. It's told in the form of clips from his appearance in WB products, ranging in age from an early appearance of the TV show MAVERICK on through last year's INVICTUS.

Despite a graceful narration from frequent collaborator Morgan Freeman, however, it is little more than a collection of clips and interviews with Eastwood in which he says pretty much what he has always said: that he makes movies he likes to see.

His career has thus been a treat for those of us who like middle-brow movies, movies with strong plots that tell stories about people whom he makes us care about -- despite occasionally being just the sort of people who think we shouldn't sympathize with. So an occasional puff piece like this is a welcome time-waster.
