    Rent it. If you buy a really good movie, you will end up seeing it so many times it won't seem as good anymore.

    Great movie.

    I watched some of the filming. A few good shots of a street I travelled on as a kid.

    Eastwood will remind a lot of us guys of a lot of our uncles or fathers, right down to keepin' off the grass.

    Watch it or buy it, you'll like it.

    Great movie as are all Clint's movies. Not on par with The Unforgiven IMHO.

    Definitely worth buying as long as your not offended by strong language and racial comments. I thought it was a very good movie and Eastwood played a the part of a crusty old blue collar worker well. He went into the script with a "the hell with being politically correct" attitude. I think that was a big part of what made the movie so good.

    BUY!!!!!!!

    Easily one of the best films in the last ten years!

    If nothing else, it will give you some insight to the creepy guy up the street.

    I bought it based on glowing reviews from people I trust. Apparently the quality of the previews really was in indication of how good the movie was.
