DONT MISS THIS MOVIE
I literally just got done watching this movie. It was amazing, I'm 14 years old, and I NEVER watch rated R movies... but i made an exception for this one... I'm glad I did. It was absolutely amazing, but the fact that common sense places most focus on the racism of the movie really doesn't do it justice. Yes, racism is an issue... but it's just a surface issue. I didn't think about racism once one character was raped and the others were shot at.... all I could think is how screwed up our world has become.
Eastwood was clearly trying to do more than call attention to racism in this masterpiece, I truly believe that the themes in this movie are critical- and if you miss them.... there's no point in watching the movie.
The ending was bittersweet, and I was furious for the last 20 minutes or so of the movie... but it is such a great concept.
This movie couldn't have been done any better....
My only concern is the language... while it does add character to Walt and the others.... i don't like hearing all that nonsense... But i would definitely recommend this movie to my mature friends, it's not something for kids, and kids wouldn't get the overall theme anyway.
What other families should know
Too much violence
