Blood Work

Critics Consensus

Blood Work is a routine, but competently made thriller marred by lethargic pacing.

A heart transplant later, Terry spends his time in the harbor on his houseboat -- that is, until he starts to investigate the facts surrounding his transplant. His donor was a murder victim, and the murder is still unsolved. With the help of his seaside neighbor, Buddy (Jeff Daniels), and over the protests of his doctor, Terry reopens the case.

Audience Reviews for Blood Work

  • Dec 30, 2011
    Terry McCaleb: Remember how you said I was your friend, and I could tell you the truth? Well I don't need you at all.  "He's a heartbeat away from catching the killer" Blood Work gets a lot of shit and it is easy to see why. This is a predictable and lazy thriller from Eastwood. The plot is interesting enough to make it passable, but when you think Eastwood, you think of high quality films; not this. The supporting cast is extremely bad. Eastwood even seems to be sleepwalking through his role, a role which he has played a hundred times. He plays his standard old detective, who is done with his career, but wants to solve one last case.  A woman comes to McCaleb, a retired FBI man who has just gotten a heart transplant. The woman who comes to him, had a sister killed and that sisters heart went to McCaleb. So he feels that he must help her out, despite objections from his doctor and the authorities. He starts to piece things together, such as linked murders. The killer is also leaving messages, he says at all of his killings, "Happy Valentine's Day." This is a very average and pretty dull film from Eastwood. It isn't up to par with the majority of his work, but it also isn't his worst. If you're a big fan of Eastwood, it is still worth a look. Bad Eastwood is still decent when you look at what other directors throw out there.

    A chilling movie with a predictable plot, good acting, great concept, interesting conclusion. So basically, Im glad I saw it.

    It's low for a Clint Eastwood film, but not at all uninteresting. It's just a harmless predictable movie.
