FILM REVIEW | Richard Jewel, Clint Eastwood shows he’s still got it

Richard Jewell ★★★★

89-year old Director Clint Eastwood shows he’s still got it.

In Richard Jewell, he tells the story of the man who was initially blamed for the bomb that exploded in Atlanta, Georgia during the 1996 Summer Olympics.

Paul Walter Hauser is fine as Jewell, an overweight security’s guard who still lives with his mother (Kathy Bates in overacting mode). A back story of a reporter (Olivia Wilde) who will do anything to get her story (including sleeping with FBI agent Jon Hamm) did not happen so take this film with a grain of salt.

Sam Rockwell is very good as usual as the man who never doubted Jewell’s innocence.
