I thought it was a comedy after watching the first minute. Pulling the 'hand' gun out of his jacket, Clint's kids getting chucked out of the house on his birthday and the spitting match with the Chinese woman, all seemed very comedic.
Looks great though. I like that he seems like a very flawed hero.
Just got back and I actually thought it was a really good film. It brought up a lot of interesting points about people and tolerance as well as sacrifice. It doesn't hurt that Eastwood is a talented director. At 78 I still felt he had screen presence and his performance was poignant. Anyway, worth seeing in the theaters.
