I thought it was racist, and aimed at angry older folk

What was racist about it? The Asian family were decent people and the villains were in a gang

There would be no story without the villians

The slurs. Plus lines like "we would have stacked up ****s like you ten feet high in Korea, used you as sandbags"

His character was in the Korean war.
That negates everything you said.

Re: Watched this today

Yes, he said racist things but he turned out to be a friend to the young man next door and gave his life to put the bad guys in prison

😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 🤨 Let's go, Brandon! 🤨 Try that in a small town.

It's the classic "Grumpy racist with a heart of gold" trope.

It was VERY good!

Excellent movie. I'd say it is one of Eastwood's best films from the millennial and perhaps one his best overall.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Watched this today

Agreed, my friend ❤️

Re: Watched this today *spoilers*

I watched this when it came out, thought it was pretty decent, although predictable . The acting from the Asian guy was kinda below par.

It’s not a masterpiece like Million dollar Baby, but it was a watchable movie from Clint. The ending with the song from
Jamie Callum was great though

Re: Watched this today *spoilers*

Not exactly a happy ending though.

Sure, we see the kid driving around in his car.
Happy, happy, joy, joy which makes us forget that for him to have gotten it meant that Walt gets shot to death.
