It's been a long while since I saw the original, never read the book, so kinda went into this one not knowing what to expect. In terms of comparing it to other modern day horror movies, it's slightly better than average..? Overall it's still pretty kooky and not really all that "scary". Could've been much worse than it was, but obviously could've been better too. Meh.
This one is a tricky one to give a rating for since a lot of it is the inspiration for the first volume of Kill Bill, so in a way I'm a bit jaded to the story here. It's a good movie, no doubt, love the opening/ending theme to this(again, due to Kill Bill). Only tiny bits here and there did it drag slightly, and thus I dozed off a little hah, but other than that I give this my seal of approval.
Once again, Old Man Eastwood is back at it in the lead role, leading a life where he just doesn't understand the new generation. This time around he's a drug mule(hence the title) which makes for some interesting, and very awkward scenes. I feel like this was trying to recapture some of that same magic Gran Turino had, but I just wasn't really feeling it here. Eastwood does fine I suppose, the supporting case is decent as well. Still, this gets a "meh".
Interesting premise, although with these sorta movies you can pretty much guess the outcome. I knew this wasn't going to have one of those depressing anti-climatic endings since that would essentially make it Terminator minus the Terminators(think Skynet). It's alright yeah, but if I want to watch an 80's Matthew Broderick movie, I'll stick with Bueller.
Really loved the West Texas setting here, it was beautifully shot. Acting was excellent, love seeing Jeff Bridges play a Texas Ranger. Pine and Foster are great in the lead roles as brothers on the run after robbing from a chain of small time banks. Essentially it's a modern day Western, great watch.
