The mule review

The Mule review- The last movie directed and interpreted by Clint Eastwood.

  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Genre: thriller, action, road movie
  • Cast: Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Andy Garcia, Michael Pena, Alison Eastwood, Laurence Fishburn
  • Running time: 116 minutes

Official synopsis (Warner Bros): Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well—so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn’t the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him.

A quick personal opinion:

  • I LIKE: Interpretation of Clint Eastwood. Cast. Photography
  • I DON’T LIKE: Movie ethic. Some not credible characters. Weak parallelism between Earl and Bates
  • FINAL SCORE: 7/10
