He's not amazing, but his movies are usually pretty good. And for the characters he plays, tough guys, there isn't much emotion to portray. I never notice that he's acting though, which is usually a sign of a good actor.

Yes he is an overrated actor, and everybody here is well proving that by not elaborating on how he's a good actor. He's a decent actor in the same way that Tommy Lee Jones and John Wayne aren't the best actors: they only do some parts well. Clint Eastwood always has the same attitude in all his movies. Just like "EWills" above me has said "he plays, tough guys", and that's pretty much all he plays. He's not very diverse in his acting and that's why he's not a great actor. What he does he does amazingly, though he's a one trick pony.

This is exactly what I think about him.
Report as
robin Williams is NOT a great actor he isn't even a good.actor
Report as
Robin Williams has had great performances in Insomnia, Good Will Hunting, Hamlet, The Fisher King etc... Robin Williams gets a bad rep from the bad movies he's been in, and from people that just don't like him. Looking through his career he's actually had many great performances.

Clint has 10 times more movies and is a great actor and director ! I agree with ryan !
Report as
"10 times more movies"? What does the quantity of movies that he's been in have anything to do with his diversity in acting?
Report as
Clint Eastwood has more "great" movies then robin Williams does and robin Williams gets a bad rap because the bad movies he was in were terrible and Clint Eastwood doesn't have that many "bad" movies
Report as
quentinc
Agreed Ryan ! Clint's movies are all quality ! He's had a few bad one but not near as many as Robin Williams !

How many successful movies has Robin Williams made ? The movies Eastwood made showing both sides of the battle of Iwo Jima were excellent !
Report as
@ryan: Yes Robin Williams has been in some horrible movies and Clint hasn't been in any horrible movies, but the point is that Robin Williams, even though he has played some bad parts, can play great parts (as in such examples as the ones I gave you). Clint has played in many more great films but the point is that he plays the same sort of guy in every single one of them. Give me one example of Clint's diversity in acting.
Report as
@quentinc: First of all: the argument isn't about Robin Williams being in more great movies than Clint, it's about Robin Williams acting greatly in the great movies that he's acted in and showing diversity in acting. Clint always plays the same sort of guy in every one of the movies he's been in. Secondly: we're talking about acting, we're not talking about directing. Clint directing some great movies doesn't refect on him being a good or bad actor.

Ain't worth arguing about ! Clint has played in other type roles and is more multi-talented. Robin Williams was the best " Popeye" that has ever been on the screen. Both good actors !
Report as
Yeah well if you can't give me examples then I'm gonna end with Clint not being an amazing actor. That's just me.

Well, there was Bridges in Madison County , Play Misty for Me , Gran Turino and a few others I can't remember their names. I rate them close and when Robin starts directing , he'll do even better ! But that's just me .
Report as
I don't know about Gran Torino, though he definitely did an amazing job in The Bridges Of Madison County :)

I think he's great as an actor and director ! I would have voted for him for President if he would have run ! His two movies about both sides of the battle of Iwo Jima were great ! As was Gran Torino !
