Trouble with the Curve Reviews
Eastwood, well, is Eastwood. In filmmaking, at least, he's sure of what he's doing. As a director, he remains challenging; merely acting in "Curve," he knows what the crowd wants, from threats to punks to soliloquies muttered through clenched teeth.
Muttering in a hoarse whisper, stooping just a bit, [Eastwood] finds an angry grace and pathos more satisfying than anything else in this grooved fastball of a movie.
Any Eastwood film is notable above all for its professionalism. If the story here has certain foreseeable moments, that's not to say they aren't set up well and deliver right on time.
