Not Quite as Dramatic Or Epic Clue Hunting
Eastwood knows how to direct a drama and I was very happy to find that I did not leave out here depressed as I have seen in the past. It's got a great heart to it, filled to the brim with the magic of friendship, determination, and what it really means to be a hero. Fantastic film with acting and great use of cinema skills, the movie will certainly be engaging to those that like biographical dramas. It's true that it needs a little fine tuning in the fact vs dramad epartment and could get a little more exciting and complete, but overall, I was very impressed with what Eastwood put together. While not the most special effects palooza, Richard Jewell has quality that would make the trip worthwhile, but most will enjoy the film in their own homes for this one. My review scores recommends:
Movie Overall 7.0
