Synopsis:
Clint Eastwood memorably plays Everett in 'True Crime', a savvy beat-the-clock thriller, Isiah Washington, Denis Leary, Lisa Gay Hamilton, James Woods, Diane Venora and others populate this suspense tale that tightens to nerve-frying intensity intercutting the parallel stories of the inmate and Everett's scramble to save him..and perhaps lift his own life out of the trash heap along the way. Everett is harried, determined and trying not to self-destruct. And the clock is ticking.

Clint Eastwood plays Clint Eastwood - True Crime review by RP

Spoiler Alert
26/01/2012

Clint Eastwood plays Clint Eastwood as an old and cynical newspaper reporter who has a hunch that a convicted murderer is innocent. Can he prove that there has been a miscarriage of justice before the soon-to-be-executed man meets his fate? Of course he can – he is, after all, Clint Eastwood. Can he get the girl? Of course he can – he is, after all, Clint Eastwood and only 40+ years older than her. Can he play the loving father? Of course he can – he is, after all, Clint Eastwood and must have been fathering his daughter when he was well over 60. Clint plays an old, ex-drunk, womaniser – a role he could play in his sleep.

His age grates a little and this is one of his later films where his excellent directing skills improve while he continued to cast himself in age-inappropriate roles. It's still a fairly good film which I enjoyed – but then, I do like Clint Eastwood. One other point: Bernard Hill plays the role of the warden of San Quentin prison, a bold attempt seeing as he's from Manchester :) I'll rate 'True Crime' as 3/5 stars but that's stretching it a bit.
