Tightrope is one I have never seen before and would like some of your thoughts on this movie.  I am in the process of eventually buying every Eastwood movie he's starred in.  But does this movie rank very well?  Is it pretty good?  Obviously I will like it to some degree being that Clint's in it .  But is it pretty good?

I like it a lot (see my av), and I think it usually rates high with both critics and Eastwood fans.

Here are a few threads where we've discussed it (there may be spoilers, so careful if you're sensitive to them):

(The last is part of our film discussion on Tightrope from ten years ago. You'll find other threads from this discussion starting on Page 16 of the "Previous Film Discussions" forum, here: http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?board=16.320 )

Thanks a lot KC. It sounds like a pretty good movie.  I wanted to ask some of my fellow members on here first before watching this or buying this movie. I usually don't enjoy seeing movies where tons of women are getting strangled and murdered. Even though I know it's just a movie and not real these types of movies usually hit a nerve with me. Due to the fact that these types of things happen to women a lot in real life.  I think about my mother, sister, and girlfriend.  I may sound childish but sometimes those types of movies bother me a little. Much like Million Dollar Baby I like the movie a lot however the ending always seems to depress me and bother me.  With that said I will eventually buy Tightrope and watch it.  I just wanted to see what some of you think about it.
Thanks.  And thanks KC.

Smitty1993, around here we encourage people to buy or legally download/stream Clint's movies. I am assuming there wouldn't be a copy on YouTube with that is there by permission of the copyright owners.

I think they have copyrights or just changed filters to make it not get blocked and removed

Nevertheless, give Clint and his associates a fighting chance and don't post any links that don't have a Warner Bros. seal of approval, please!
