Description

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.

    I was tempted to give this 2 stars, but I can't honestly say I "didn't like" any of it. The set up is interesting and, particularly near the end, the movie offers up some very tender moments. There's some decent tension as you keep wondering when things are going to take a bad turn with the narcotraffickers. But too often the plot feels like it's being manipulated to serve the author's purpose. Early on, for example, Eastwood's character never guesses that he's transporting drugs, even though the signs are quite obvious. The more unfortunate aspect of the movie is that Eastwood's character makes several quips that are unabashedly racist, and the movie offers little counterpoint. Made by an entitled White man for other entitled White males, the movie is surprisingly tone deaf to its creators' obvious biases. Ten years ago, I think a movie like this would have drawn much more fire for implicitly agreeing to the main character's racism. Today, it can get away with a wink and nod to its real target audience.

    Clint Eastwood nailed it again as he did in Grand Tourino ! GREAT movie that hits home on a REAL life level . Not of big fan of the woman playing his wife but she only played a small part . IMO BUT dealing with the past and regrets of how it SHOULD have been is very well depicted in this movie . I HIGHLY recomend it to ANY one ! People love to judge others ,but put yourself in THIER shoes for a hour, day , week ...and THEN see what it's like to walk in some one elses shoes dealing with THIER problems . This movie SO reminds us of this very fact . DONT judge a book by it's cover EVER lol
  • Amazing

    I saw this movie in theaters because I was bored, and I was actually surprised about how bad it was. While the plot line was okay, it was extremely predictable, and there was barely any character development. The camerawork and editing was fine, but there were extremely corny scenes, like the death scene, where it seemed like the lady was never going to die after moaning for about 30 seconds. I believe this scene was intended for dramatic effect, but it really turned out to be for comedic effect. If you want a good movie to watch, this isn’t it.

    I wasn’t expecting an action thriller, but this movie just fell flat. It was extremely predictable, had no plot twist of any kind, and the end was 100% anti-climactic. There was a lot of very poor acting aside from the bigger names, and even the A-listers weren’t very compelling. Besides the main character there was no story, and so no reason to care about anyone else. Glad I didn’t leave the house and pay extra to see this in a theater, but still wish I had my $5.99 and 2 hours of my life back.
