A: After his wife dies, Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) is totally alone, with only his memories of the Korean War to keep him warm. Now he sits on his porch, disdainfully watching his all-White neighborhood get taken over by Asians, until one day, he intervenes in one of his neighbor's conflicts and ends up getting caught up in their personal lives.
Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: Clint Eastwood, Bee Vang, Ahney Her, Christopher Carley, Doua Moua, Geraldine Hughes, Brian Haley, John Carroll Lynch, Brian Howe, Chee Thao
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Proceed with Caution. At first the film is slow and boring, and you can take a nap. Then it gets really funny, in an inside-humor kind of way, and then it gets really dramatic, building to a moment which is not nearly as important as they hoped it would be. And that's followed up with an ending that's predictable. I enjoyed it. Mostly for the funny parts.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: If Clint Eastwood tried to have Will Ferrell's career, this is what it would look like.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: The dog has something of a tear-jerking moment. But in order to be susceptible to it, you have to be the kind of person who can't handle puppy-dog eyes.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: It's Clint Eastwood, so it's guaranteed to be nominated.
Q: How is the Acting?
A: Clint Eastwood huffs and he puffs and he over-acts the house down. Everyone else in the film is much worse.
Q: How is the Directing?
A: It reminded me of the work of a really promising first time independent filmmaker. Not necessarily a compliment to a man who's directed 29 films and won 2 Oscars for it. Warner Brothers might consider averting its eyes in shame, too.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: Tonally it's all over the place. Thematically, it feels like a vanity project in which Clint Eastwood can revisit his Dirty Harry character in a "Where Are They Now" kind of way. And the story itself? It's there...
Q: Where can I see the trailer?
