Synopsis:
Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80's 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. 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.

Eastwood makes this a good watch - The Mule review by CS

Spoiler Alert
23/06/2019

Based on the true story of aged drug courier Leo Sharp (a World War II veteran who became a drug courier for the Sinaloa Cartel in his 80s), Clint Eastwood gives an excellent performance in the lead role. The story is simple and effective but while Eastwood is excellent, the back story involving a mostly alienated family is scripted and acted in a way that seems somewhat contrived. Still well worth a watch - and there won't be many more films with Eastwood as a star.

Old Eastwood still good - The Mule review by EP

Spoiler Alert
01/07/2019

Clint Eastwood is no kid these days and it's been 40+ years since he was in all those Westerns I grew up watching but I think he's still good even at his more mature age. (I may be slightly biased as I am a huge fan of pretty much everything he has ever done!).

This film is good not just because of the story which is darkly comic at times, dramatic and overall bittersweet but also because although there is some action it isn't an action film so you can see how aging Eastwood really can act and judging him on his now more subtle acting abilities.

It isn't the classic of an Unforgiven or even the more recent (but still excellent) Gran Torino but there's enough of a storyline here with some big name supporting actors to still make this a really good experience in my opinion.

I laughed a bit (and cried a little), overall I enjoyed it. Oh yeah not only does Eastwood star in it - he directed it too...and he's nearly 90!
