I’m stretching my mind to try to recall a worst movie in my experience than Hereafter. If I’d realised that it was by the same director as did Million Dollar Baby I wouldn’t have even thought of going to see it. My expectations were not disappointed. It was even worse than sitting through a movie of watching women beating in each other’s brains. Eastwood does like making movies where the audience preys on people doing gross things.
To make matters worse approximately a third of the movie was unintelligible. It was supposed to be an English movie with French and German subtitles. Since a third of the movie is in French, presumably in the original it had subtitles in English for that part of it. Here in Geneva those subtitles were assiduously extracted, so that although it was advertised as an English movie, one could only follow it with fluent French as well. I must say, I found the unintelligible French more bearable than the rest.
