What did everyone think of Clint’s latest outing? Just curious to know. I had kept my expectations reasonably low considering his age, but of course I was happy, and somewhat excited, to see him in a new film - and a semi-western, no less. Even now he is still great to watch, and I enjoyed it for what it was in a charming sort of way. Kind of like seeing an old friend again.
It was kind of a slow, easing-going movie, but not entirely. The chemistry between he and the kid was, I thought, great, as well as with the woman he grows close to in Mexico. There were a lot of good performances in this, and I think that redeems it for the lack of punch overall. I wasn’t expecting fireworks, but I was left feeling slightly unsure of how I felt about it in the end - I certainly enjoyed his previous one ‘The Mule’ much better.
Thinking on it now, a year later, I was just wondering what other’s views were on it, and if anyone else felt the same way - slightly underwhelmed, but also charming and heart-warming to see.
