Did You Know?


The so called Captain mentioned section 434.868c granted by the U.S Senate, but nothing like that actually exists and therefore as a PMC he has no right to any diplomatic and could be deemed "persona non grata" by its host nation. See more »

Very good movie
24 November 2017 | by posterelliSee all my reviews

As a fan of his father's, it is refreshing to see another Eastwood in an action western role. Young Mr. Eastwood played a very good believable role. The acting was excellent. The plot was original. The directing was excellent. I look forward to seeing more movies of this type from these people. The movie could have been a little longer. No regrets. I give it A's for effort, originality and really just a great movie in this genre. This is a man's movie... not a critic's movie. Respect earned.
