Product Overview

The Clint Eastwood Hero Collection includes HEARTBREAK RIDGE, ABSOLUTE POWER and A PERFECT WORLD.

HEARTBREAK RIDGE: There are no wars to fight, but Gunnery Sgt. Tom Highway, a dog-faced relic of past wars, still has a lot of fight left in him. Clint Eastwood directs, produces and stars in Heartbreak Ridge as "gunny" Highway, a U.S. Marine Corps lifer who, starting his last tour of duty before retirement, sees the bumpy road his life has taken become more complicated. He is at one a hidebound bootcamp traditionalist and master of ear-scorching insults, going nose-to-nose with feisty recruits; a battle-scarred Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, going eyeball-to-eyeball with officers whose knowledge of war comes from textbooks; and a closet romantic, going heart-to-heart with his ex-wife (Marsha Mason), hoping to rekindle their love with lines he's learned from Cosmopolitan. Take the ridge-Heartbreak Ridge-and get a vivid, rough-and-ready entertainment, a remarkable work from a top artist in top form.

ABSOLUTE POWER: He was where he shouldn't have been and saw what he shouldn't have seen. Now, who will believe the word of a career criminal and ex-con? Who will trust Luther Whitney when he says he saw a woman killed--and that the man responsible for her death is the President of the United States? Clint Eastwood portrays Whitney and directs this crisp, finely-acted thriller based on David Baldacci's best-selling novel. A stellar cast which includes Gene Hackman and Ed Harris creates well-rounded characters that intensify a constantly spiraling game of cat and mouse between Whitney, local police and the highest levels of White House power. Eastwood is a master at steadily raising the stakes in thrillers. Here his mastery is absolute.

A PERFECT WORLD: Kevin Costner is Butch Haynes, a hardened prison escapee on the lam with a young hostage (T.J. Lowther in a remarkable film debut) who sees in Butch the father figure he never had. Clint Eastwood is wily Texas Ranger Red Garnett, leading deputies and a criminologist (Laura Dern) in a statewide pursuit. Red knows every road and pothole in the Panhandle. What's more, he knows the elusive Haynes--because their paths have crossed before.

Review Clint Eastwood's Heartbreak Ridge uses an absolutely standard plot, and makes it special with its energy, its colorful characters and its almost poetic vulgarity. ...Eastwood, as the producer, director and star, caresses the material... Heartbreak Ridge doesn't aim as high as most current high-tech action movies, but it hits its target.

Review [Absolute] ...an intriguing story told in an effective manner. It's entertaining for the most part, sporadically clever, and occasionally gripping... Eastwood's approach is slow and deliberate; he develops characters and relationships and doesn't rely on cheap gimmicks to generate tension. The favorable result speaks for itself.

Review [Heartbreak] Producer-director-star Eastwood proves once again that he knows what most contemporary Hollywood filmmakers have never learned: that it is possible to make financially successful, entertaining, intelligent films quickly and economically. Eastwood also proves that he has a better sense of American film history than many of the directors who graduated from prestigious film schools.
