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.
the mule (2018) - clint eastwood synopsis will be updates..
the best movie of 2019 i've watched it four times since i bought it.
I expected more from this movie. I found it predictable and lacking depth. The attempts to comment on things like the modern digital age and past racial slurs are wince-inducing. There are messages on life inside this movie but it falls short of the director’s greater works. I would wait for it to be on Amazon or HBO. It’s supposedly based on true events but there are no images or writing at the end of the movie. Would’ve been cool to see the real people if possible. Looks like the RT ratings were paid for.
Done Beautifully!Shows how Easily someone can be caught in the Underworld of Crime‼️
I'll never get that 2 hours back....
Absolutely nothing redeemable in this movie... The plot was completely contrived from beginning to end and very little of it was plausible.
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 !
Numerous divaricate side plots, I felt like I was in the head of a storyteller with ADHD.
Horrible acting. Unbelievable story line. Enter Clint Eastwood, older gentleman...12 years later, hasn’t aged a day. At his granddaughter’s engagement party, his daughter hastily leaves when she sees him, because 12 years ago he skipped out on her wedding. Then his ex makes a scene and announces that he is only there because he is destitute. She tries to guilt trip him because he promised to help pay for the granddaughter’s wedding....and that’s when we stopped.
This is a sleeper. Why didn’t it come up w awards this year? Baffled. Must watch.
