User Reviews

Eastwood is noted for a high level of economic craft and The Mule is no exception.
14 December 2018 | by arishsankarSee all my reviews

In some ways, The Mule represents a late-period version of classic Eastwood, in that it's even pokier and more workmanlike than his best work,

The film finally ends up souring its perspective on responsibility with a hardened take on the limits of the American dream.
