The Mule is directed by Clint Eastwood and stars Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Pena, Dianne West, and Andy Garcia. The plot of the movie is a 90-year old horticulturist and Korean War veteran is caught transporting $3 million worth of cocaine through Illinois for a Mexican drug cartel. I wasn't looking forward to seeing this I haven't enjoyed the last few films that Clint Eastwood has directed.  I thought this movie was decent.    Clint Eastwood is really solid in the movie, however, I found the character unlikable. He's an ignorant jerk and not much of a family man.  Dianne West she is really good in this movie. She was one of the standouts for me as Clint Eastwood's characters ex-wife, and she kills it particularly in her last couple of sense.  Bradley Cooper, Michael Pena, Andy Garcia, and Laurence Fishburne are all great, but none of them have a whole lot of screen time.  The movie does have its funny moments the best one being with the bikers.    You have to sit through several drug runs before you get to the main one, and they all felt extremely repetitive and slowed the movie down. Also, there is a scene where he unzips the bag and is shocked at what he is transporting and all I could think was how big of a moron do you have to be not to realize what it is. He made the pick up with these big scary guys with guns what did he think it was milk and cookies?  3 out of 5 stars The Mule. I hope you enjoyed my review.
