Plot summary

Earl Stone, a man in his eighties, 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 so well that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates.

Swan Song

A marketing campaign coming in at the 12th hour and a film that's still been surprisingly hidden by Warner Bros, The Mule could be a fitting end to a storied Hollywood career from Clint Eastwood. In many ways mirroring his life, The Mule gives insight into Eastwood's inner psyche, as he has navigated being an in demand actor for over 60 years whilst having a large family to look after as well. So if you're looking at the film in that way, it's a sharp and poignant apology Eastwood is sending to his family after all these years. It's not a perfect film, but it's tightly directed, at times brilliantly intense, and even emotionally moving. Even if it is a ultimately predictable and unsurprising drama. If it is Eastwood's last hoorah, it's been one hell of a run.

7.7/10

Clint Eastwood's still got it

I had never heard of Leo Sharp before watching "The Mule". What a story. Clint Eastwood (who also directed) plays a fictionalized version of Sharp, smuggling drugs for a cartel partly because it enables him to spend the money benevolently. These moral conundrums arise a lot.

It was a little weird in some scenes, seeing Eastwood surrounded by women a fraction of his age; probably wishful thinking on his part. Even so, the movie shows how the old man got more and more into the business, resulting in some tense incidents. In addition to Eastwood, there's good support from Laurence Fishburne, Bradley Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Andy Garcia and Taissa Farmiga.

old man humor

Korean War vet Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood) is an award winning flower grower. Times are tough and he loses his business to internet competition. His constant travels have alienated his ex-wife (Dianne Wiest) and daughter. His granddaughter (Taissa Farmiga) is getting married. He needs money to contribute to the wedding and a wedding guest has a suggestion. He becomes a mule for the drug cartel. Agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper) is new to the DEA and he's tracking the mules.

First off, the cartel is overpaying for transportation. He's only moving the drugs within the States. The only reason to pay that much is to deliver the drugs across the border. I'm not sure why Clint is not doing that for this movie. It probably costs more to construct a border crossing and it may be difficult to film there now even for the GOP giant. There's not enough tension and crossing the border has the ability to inject vast amounts of intensity. This is generally a well constructed and functionally structured movie. Clint can do this in his sleep. The problem is that he thinks certain scene are hilarious but it's old-man hilarity. It's hilarious to old men who yell at kids to get off their lawns. The negro scene is hilarious. The five minutes of danger is hilarious. Jimmy Stewart is a great bit. The internet is a catch-all. It's old man humor done in an accusatory way. Relax old man, I've changed my tires before and I've even changed an air filter or two. He is directing the humor at the audience rather than with the audience. Of course, Clint has to be a sex machine and I actually find this somewhat funny. Finally, the DEA agents are not seen in the best light either. If they know that it's a black truck, one would think that a drug sniffing dog would be discreetly deployed around every dark colored truck at that motel. Quite frankly, the earlier dog scene is really good. There is a lackadaisical feel to the writing. This is not Clint's best work.
