The Mule Reviews

February 10, 2019
Clint Eastwood, eighty-eight, has nothing to prove and should gracefully retire. His refusal as an actor and director to adapt to modern times is damaging his once meaningful brand.
February 9, 2019
The economy and efficiency of Eastwood's direction only seems to improve. The Mule moves at a breezy, unforced clip, with Eastwood effortlessly switching from personal-drama mode to action-thriller mode.

The Mule's greatest flaws are its expectedly racist and sexist undertones, but Clint Eastwood's latest directorial effort is also just extremely boring.
February 5, 2019
The Mule is a sentimental look at an unsuspecting criminal, driven by Eastwood's sly direction and performance.

It's a good part for Eastwood...a window into our past...

[Clint Eastwood's] undeniable charisma anchors the film, despite its many inconsistencies and lack of drama.
January 29, 2019
Welcome to Peak Apologetics for the Bull[crap] of White Men, replete with many appalling messages about their endless entitlement to redemption and forgiveness. And as a bonus, it's racist and sexist.

Clint Eastwood directs and stars in this true story of an elderly drug runner, but can't quite settle on a tone.

I was entertained up to a point.

It's fun to see the stooped but still charismatic star playing a roguish old coot, but...several off notes suggest its director is as out of touch as the man he depicts.
January 28, 2019
"A film in which the old republican / libertarian Eastwood appears before the spectators to confront them and provoke them..."
January 28, 2019
The Mule is both surprisingly watchable and touchingly good, with Eastwood...on impressive form, both in front of and behind the camera.
January 28, 2019
Eastwood can and has done far better.

The Mule is significant because it is not only the farewell of Eastwood as an actor but one that shows him reaching out to everything different. [Full Review in Spanish]

Watching this movie is like checking the news after popping a Xanax. The world's going to hell in a handcart. But it's all good.
January 27, 2019
The Mule is a pleasure, albeit a somewhat guilty one.
January 27, 2019
It's perfectly watchable but a film with this puttering pace is never going to get the blood racing.
January 27, 2019
The Mule has more than a few bumps along the way, but there's worse roads to take a Sunday drive down.
January 26, 2019
This is one of [Eastwood's] strongest and least politicised outings since he hit 80, despite some scenes veering towards being straight up average.
January 25, 2019
The story has moments of tension and drama, but best of all is the protagonist who steals your heart with his stubbornness and blunt comments. [Full review in Spanish]
