I hate to say it but Clint Eastwood should retire. I would have wanted to applaud him for being an actor/director at age 91, but in Cry Macho he is playing the role of a character obviously written for a thirty-forty years younger actor. It is just uncomfortable to see Eastwood walk with his old man shuffle, embarrassing to see a beautiful woman throw herself at this stiff, almost mummified nonagenarian and silly to see him pretend to one punch knock out a muscled guy in his thirties. When Eastwood gets on his knees to look under a car, I feared he wouldn't be able to get up. It doesn't help that the kid actor looks too old for his role as a 13 year old and his acting is awkward. The movie lacks tension and drive.
Easily one of Eastwood's weakest directorial efforts. Not recommended.
Truly disappointing. Incompetent in many ways, specially screenplay-wise. Looks pretty, tho.
I agree with user ymmv, and while I do agree Eastwood should retire from acting, I don’t think Eastwood should retire from directing - Richard Jewell is a great film with great performances, and that was only two years ago.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
