An average movie

Even though I wasn’t expecting much from this flick, since I'm a big fan of Clint Eastwood, I still wanted to watch this flick. To be honest, it is nothing mind-blowing whatsoever and it is definitely one of his weaker efforts. I mean, it seems that, at that time, Clint Eastwood was still practicing his director skills (it was his 4th directing effort) and it is how the movie felt to me. It was ... read more

Most Dangerous Movies Ever Made (13 movies items)

"Clint Eastwood's third directorial effort The Eiger Sanction (adapted from a popular novel of the same name) tells the somewhat familiar story of a retired assassin called back to do one last job—only this job takes place on the infamous north face of the Eiger, a 13,000 foot mountain in the Swiss Alps. The film was shot on location, so production was bound to be dangerous—and Eastwood and his crew didn't shy away from taking chances. This is illustrated nicely by one insane risk taken by E"

Best Films of 1975 (30 movies items)

" Eastwood directs one of his more challenging films, which is this sprawling very-70s action film that is actually maybe one of the best climbing films I've seen. "

"11/6/17 Clint Eastwood directs and stars as a former assassin for a secret organisation brought out of retirement for one more job while climbing the Eiger. A silly premise is kept together by Eastwood's smart one-liners, some decent set pieces and the incredible climbing sequences, especially when they arrive on the mountain. Plus there's one of John Williams's most underrated scores."
