If this is indeed the last on-screen performance from the great Clint Eastwood, he goes out in style. Eastwood is far removed from Dirty Harry or The Man with No Name - no, here, he's an old man - one who has become estranged from his family but finds hope in the most unexpected of places - working as a drug mule for a cartel. The film has plenty of tension and a great supporting cast, but it is Eastwood's Earl Stone, warts and all, who carries the film. Worth it for one final round with a true legend.

Family’s the most important thing.
Work’s fine, if it’s in second position.
But first position should be family.
“The Old Man & the Gun” might be the piece de résistance of Robert Redford. “The Mule” might be the grand finale in Clint Eastwood’s career. This legendary actor looks shockingly old. I even felt sorry for him at certain times. The way he was treated is inconsistent with the image you have of him in other movies. I hoped that as a veteran, he would use a few handy fighting movements to silence the arrogant cartel members. Forget it. Clint Eastwood stayed loyal to his role as a submissive and defenseless elderly person who does what he’s told. But you can rest assured, Mr. Eastwood is and remains a brilliant and respectable actor. There’s no praise …
