Wife talked me into seeing this. Glad she did, we both liked it a lot. read it was based on a true story. Eastwood plays an old guy, 90, who was a drug courier for the Sinaola cartel.

I enjoyed it to. Not your typical Eastwood movie, but I really liked the way it was done. It is supposed to be his last movie and I see some parallels to John Wayne's last movie the Shootist. Both men ended their careers by playing old men who knew their days were numbered. Wayne went out with guns blazing but still showed a scared dying man. Eastwood never backed down and was not at all intimidated by the thugs in the movie and did everything his way, on his terms.

Most of the scenes that were supposed to be in Illinois were actually filmed where I live in NW Georgia so it was nice to see some local spots that I recognized.


Most people don't really want the truth.

They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

I thought that there were supposed to be two mules and a nun.

Nope but believe it or not old Clint had a couple of threesomes in this. One with hookers the other with a couple of cartel girls.

Around Rome correct? I lived 17 miles North of Rome off 27.

Thanks for posting this thread. Been wanting to see it but haven't yet. Michael Savage said a couple of things about it on his show that made me not go outta my way to see it. Will definitely check it out when it comes my way.

My wife and I saw it and thought it was OK. I did not like the end at all, I thought he would have been used as an informant?????

My wife and I saw it. She did not like it as much as I.

Perhaps I should qualify "like it".

I could relate to the person that Clint played on several different levels.

I'll let it go at that

ya!

43shooter: I enjoyed the movie as did the VarmintWife - I won't spoil the movie for anyone but it was not what I was expecting.
Sadly, I will let this out, there were only two dead mexican druggies encountered in the whole movie (IIRC)!
I have always enjoyed Mr. Eastwood's movies, acting and direction.
I gave it an 84 on a scale of 1 to 100 (I was hoping this movie would have been a 92 or a 95!).
Long live Clint Eastwood - a true American and a true American success story.

I would have to agree with VarmintGuy. Not what I expected and maybe not as good as I wanted, but it's Clint and a lot better than much of the other trash out there. Can you say Ant Man?

If you want to see a real life story in a movie format, be sure to see the “Green Hornet”.
