Unrelenting in his pursuit of justice, Terry McCaleb (Clint Eastwood) is fast closing in on his latest adversary - a psychopath dubbed "The Code Killer".

Two years later, a beautiful stranger (Wanda De Jesus) walks into his life and reveals that McCaleb's life was actually saved by the death of her murdered sister.

This is no turkey! - Blood Work review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
14/06/2011

I cannot understand why this movie bombed at the box office. With Clint Eastwood starring & directing & with an excellent book my Michael Connelly (The Bone Collector), it should have been a surefire winner. I thought Clint made a good job, both directing & acting, & for the most part, stuck to the plot in the book.

Competent cop thriller - Blood Work review by RP

Spoiler Alert
26/01/2012

Competent cop thriller, in which Clint Eastwood plays Clint Eastwood getting his man and the girl. It's routine stuff with a silly plot, but quite enjoyable. It's also one of the few films either starring or directed by Clint Eastwood that somehow I hadn't seen before.

The (silly) plot goes like this: cop (well, FBI profiler) is invalided out after a heart attack. A couple of years later he gets a heart transplant. It turns out that he has received the heart of a murder victim. The donor's sister asks him to track down the killer. Retired cop finds that a serial killer is at work and that the killer is stalking him. Retired cop identifies killer using a series of telegraphed clues and gets his man.

It is well directed and acted – as we would expect from Mr Eastwood. The thing which jarred with me was grizzled 70+ year old Clint having a romantic encounter with a 40+ year old woman (at least that's the age of the actress – the character she plays is probably supposed to be younger). Talk about cradle snatching :) And the clues are pretty obvious – I don't think it's the kind of film you could watch over and over.

Despite the flaws I enjoyed it and rate it at 3/5 stars.
