Heartbreak Ridge


heartbreakridgeAging Marine veteran Thomas Highway (Clint Eastwood) is assigned a reconnaissance platoon that needs a lot of work, but he also finds a new enemy in the shape of a major (Everett McGill) with a stick up his assā€¦ Vietnam veteran James Carabatsos wrote this entertaining story of how a grizzled Korea vet clashes with younger generations; the Marine Corps had its reservations, but still helped get the movie made. Silly, and a faster pace wouldnā€™t have hurt, but thereā€™s action near the end as Eastwoodā€™s troops fight in the 1983 Grenada invasion. The star himself is more than half the movie as the gravel-voiced sergeant.

1986-U.S. 130 min. Color. Produced and directed byĀ Clint Eastwood. Screenplay: James Carabatsos. Cast: Clint Eastwood (Thomas Highway), Marsha Mason (Aggie), Everett McGill (Malcolm Powers), Moses Gunn, Eileen Heckart, Bo Svensonā€¦ Mario Van Peebles.

Quote: “Be advised. I’m mean, nasty and tired. I eat concertina wire and piss napalm and I can put a round in a flea’s ass at 200 meters. So why don’t you go hump somebody else’s leg, mutt face, before I push yours in.” (Eastwood to a convict)
