Still going strong, Eastwood does not disappoint in his latest movie. And yes, there was even a few minutes of action.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This film was fine, but for me not quite what i expect from Eastward’s more recent efforts. His acting was good in his laid back style and carried the movie in places, I thought, but I was a bit distracted by the more lackluster performance of a few others. Dwight Yoakum, for example, whose singing I have always enjoyed, seemed to deliver his lines woodenly at times. But I won’t dwell on critiquing here and there. Overall it was watchable. It just seems like it could have shown more spark if Eastward had lit a fire under a few butts during some of the scenes. Maybe by planting that doleful, slow-burn stare on them, hand twitching near the holster that wasn’t there.

A mid Clint Eastwood flick. 'Cry Macho' is passable, I had a fine time with it as I got suitable enjoyment. I wasn't overly invested but I don't have any noteworthy issues either. It narrowly gets a 7/10 rating from yours truly. At the age of 91, Eastwood is still acting, directing and producing movies - you gotta admire his longevity! He remains entertaining to watch, having come a long way since that debuting (uncredited) role in 1955's 'Revenge of the Creature'. There isn't much to note about the cast behind the lead, though Eduardo Minett and Natalia Traven are alright. I have nothing else to say. It's a satisfactory film.

The writing was pitiful, and the acting was mediocre, at best. Clint Eastwood is way too old to even attempt being a romantic lead. The senoritas making a play for him was farcical. He's also too old to be an action star. As far as bustin' broncos, you could almost see the stunt man being called in to take the reins. The kid was supposed to be a streetwise hellion, but the only hint of that was that he could apparently boost old cars. Overall, if you have good memories of Clint Eastwood, my advice is to skip this movie and avoid tarnishing your image of Clint.
