Just saw this today (a screener of it.)

I swear, I never heard so many different racial slurs from one mouth, this movie, no joke, is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a while, it's like a drama/comedy, a little somewhat like Leon: The Professional (you should understand this type of humor.)

Aside from that, I found the movie to be quite bogus in terms of his rough character, the dialog in it was somewhat, in my own opinion, bullshitty. Maybe it's just me, I don't care if it already got awards, it seemed like too much bullshit, but it doesn't mean it was a bad movie.

The Asian gangsters in this are so hollow, it's like "hi, I'm an Asian gangster, I have a tricked out ride, I mock Asian culture by acting like a hoodlum, har har har!" You have to see it.

The up side to this movie is the words I learned, or remembered thanks to Clint Eastwood's extensive list of racial slurs:

For blacks: Spooks
For whites: Slippy
For Asians: Slopes, Zipperheads, Dragonlady (for females,) ****s (I knew that already,) Charlie Chan, Kang, Sewer Rat, Fish Heads. I swear, he must have said like 10 more good ones!

"Slope" is fucking AWESOME!

I give this movie a 7 out of 10.

Pros -
Fucking awesome racial slurs
Good hardcore dialog similar to Dirty Harry
Clint Eastwood

Cons -
Ricers
Seemingly bogus dialog at times
Ridiculous amount of bullshit about the Hmong ways
Young Asian chicks bring old white guys to the basement party with other teens? Whhhhat?

I liked this film a lot, one of the better ones of this year. I think the acting from the kids in the movie was weak, but I guess they wanted to cast people who were actually Hmong, Mexican, etc., it was just obvious they didn't have a lot of acting experience, especially in comparison to Eastwood. So, he sort of overpowered them and the film, but if you're an Eastwood fan, you'll definitely like this. The ending made this a good movie for me.

BTW, I thought the films message about America was good also, on one side you have the spoiled sons of factory workers (Clint's kids and grandkids) and then you have white kids trying to be ghetto (the kid out on the date with the girl). If you notice, because Clint is a vet, he says more to say to the white kid, calling him a pussy and saying these guys don't want to be friends with you, than he does the actual black gangsters. I think Clint was definitely trying to show a lot of older white people that they can find common ground with minorities. There's so many themes in this movie to explore which is why I think it's so clever. Job well done by Eastwood.

Basically, I thought the minorities came off looking better than the white people, except Eastwood. While some of the minorities in the film are displayed as gangsters, the whites are shown as petty, cowardly, and lazy.

Charlie Chan


Random bit of information, this is the asian equivalent to an "Uncle Tom". If an asian calls another asian a "Charlie Chan", then they're basically calling him out to be a stereotype-fulfilling, white-pleasing asian. Doesn't get used much though but I use it a lot because I see too many charlie chan motherfuckers out here.


I have yet to see the movie but I hear good things.

I can definitely picture that because it'd be funny, plus she only did it so he would talk to her brother...

This movie was great. Clint's racist tirades are off the chain. I wish I could give a link but I guess HB's gay like that. If you want one, PM me.

Actully, i found those asian gangsters to be a pretty good depiction, my whole family is in shit like that, and aside from the way they dress, that big ass spolier on the car, it was almost accurate. Oh, and a family member would never push another family member into joining a gang like that, yeah though, i kinda feel like this is making my race look kinda bad and makes us look like F.O.B.'s.
