Clint Eastwood leaves so many question marks scattered throughout "American Sniper" that it's hard not to bury the film as another clichéd war movie. It resembles "Hurt Locker" in many ways -- except "American Sniper" is based on the life of a real American sniper, Chris Kyle, and his real accommodations.
“Jersey Boys”: the movie is not the stage play. The electricity is turned off. Never will you feel like singing along, let alone tapping your feet to the beat. That must be what Clint Eastwood wants. He has made the film his from Marshall Brickman’s and Rick Elice’s musical.
Director Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar takes on the portrayal of that famous, if not infamous, F.B.I. director from its beginnings as the Bureau of Investigation in 1935 until Hoover's death. A fine director of Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, and Flags of Our Fathers, among other outstanding films, unfortunately Eastwood fails here to energize a largely sedentary Hoover.
