Clint Eastwood directs Paul Walter Hauser, Sam Rockwell and Kathy Bates in this 1996 true story of the ungainly security guard who heroically found the device at the Atlanta Olympics bombing only to be tarred as prime suspect by the FBI and media.
Solid adult drama with exceptional performances from Rockwell and Bates. Clint is one of Hollywood’s finest directors but he is also one of the most inconsistent. This drags due to pacing issues with Eastwood letting each scene unravel just a little too much, culminating in a story with a fascinating hook testing your patience by close of play. Well worth a watch but possibly at home in bed on your tablet.
