Earl stone never was an exemplary family man. He did a lot of running around the country, earning money by trade, and rarely appeared in the walls of your own home. It charm, sense of humor and a sincere joie de vivre provided him with a recognition the popularity of among many people, but for close he never enough either time or attention.

The years went by, he has grown old, its trading business drove the Internet technology, with in contrast people, Earl to build relationships so not failed. Wife got tired of waiting his house and their marriage fell apart, grown up daughter and hate long ago ceased to talk.

And then suddenly fate suddenly threw Earl the opportunity: a casual acquaintance, after learning about the rich travel experience old trader offered him for easy operation: just bring the small bag with things to one place in other of exactly the prescribed period, with the condition of any way to it is not to look. With this point in life of the old veteran began the change.

Dramatic and very beautiful story, it is entertaining, that makes to think seriously about important things and life values. Complicated philosophy here to look not necessary — the film is made from an amazing combination of simplicity and depth. And such philosophy and should be my opinion.

A lot of good humor, charming protagonist, interesting secondary characters. Lots of crisp, beautiful dialogues, revealing the people, enriching events. All place all in time, the film looks solid, the events are all connected and environment.

Originality and novelty in the formulation of the staff here there, not necessary. A warm cozy picture of the always happy, being replaced by the alarming color in tense moments, separately underlined the same music.

Mr. Eastwood again on horseback. A talented actor and a talented Director — hard to say what more. To his character, not matter 88 years age not don't feel pity, and just on the contrary, imbued with profound respect and sympathy. On these people want to watch, to learn, to take an example.

The film is life-affirming and beautiful. It is difficult to assess this objectively. A number of the small minuses with the time can easily lose value on the background of everything else. What well, this is an excellent opportunity to review the film again.

Legendary veteran Hollywood actor with the capital letters — Clint Eastwood, the person starring in a huge number of good films, many of they have long been included in Hollywood classics and became a cult. Also Clint Eastwood known as a Director and a very good Director.

Another creation of Eastwood — Mule, which is based on the history of the old drug mule Leo Sharpe, working on the head of the Mexican cartel El Chapo. The original title of the film"Mule" — people illegally transporting drugs, but not going to sell.

And turned the protagonist of the film Earl stone (Eastwood), who quite by accident I suggest not a dusty work as a carrier or courier for a very good amount of money, so good that the first time he saw her, he just not just couldn't believe my eyes, in that moment the expression of Earl says it yourself. Actually, I personally liked the film and the change of locations of the film, the action takes place slowly and the Earl friends with on to another gorgeous black truck, singing songs. According to the analogy with the previous characters Clint Eastwood ("Gran Torino", "Curveball") all his characters have personal problems, problems in the family, sins of the past and there's always a fight by a, there is a conflict of personality, but always the end of the path a person finds peace or reconciliation with your family. In this film the family line of the Earl with his family is clearly seen. Clint Eastwood does not lose its charisma, the man is almost 89 years (God help us each to live up to that age), and it's still built in, joking, teasing, and shows that "there is still gunpowder in powder flasks". How does it film actor, and Clint Eastwood only enough to appear in a frame the movie acquires a peculiar tinge and gives charisma.

On second starred Bradley Cooper, who already worked with Eastwood over the movie "Sniper", but in this film, Eastwood was as a Director, and now they together one film, however, the joint of scenes in movie them very much, but these scenes are memorable, and I just want to highlight the final conversation between them, this conversation has shown that the character of Earl in this whole the transport of drugs not is a negative character and hero Bradley Cooper really sympathize with the Earl. Glad to see Cooper in that role after the stunning "a Star is Born", in this film from his role more down to earth and calm.

Also note two other friends I actors — Laurence Fishburne Michael peña. Each they played that they needed.

"the Mule" — not a masterpiece by Clint Eastwood, but very strong movie in its genre with a good cast and with the emotional ending.

PS: give God Clint Eastwood to live another 90 years and shoot more good movies!!!

Looking at the poster of the film, not an experienced viewer can think about symbolical adaptation of the current pension reform with the participation of self-employed part of this age groups. But, no, it just another Clint Eastwood movie, productive in his years as a never. Only two Director of US to old age, in addition to our hero, continues to build ambitious cinematic plans: woody Allen and Martin Scorsese. However, they can be the envy of activity, with which Eastwood takes pictures. "The mule" — work based on a true story, which became the basis for the scenario of nick Schenk, has already worked with Clint over the picture "Gran Torino" and known works such as "Judge" and restarting the infamous "Robocop".

The plot presents the viewer with the main character Earl. Earl — the most ordinary American retiree who enjoys breeding different varieties of plants, bringing him to the famous a lot of money to until treacherous the Internet is not leaves nothing but but our own vanity that ultimately destroys him relations with family. In minutes full of despair, the hero offered a cushy job in the field of logistics for a lot of money. Unexpectedly for yourself Earl becomes the chief courier of a Mexican drug cartel.

In the "Mule" Eastwood plays a major role and fits to his character, often invoking the analogy with the hero of "Gran Torino" with the only difference is that the Earl — God dandelion, although it is not sinless. His new job, the Director interrupts the series of cinematic narratives about the American heroes after the failure of "Train to Paris" story is perhaps one of the most controversial human stories. And like there are a large number of interpretations of the artistic message of the picture, where someone will be able to see the subtle contrasts between the Matt modern twentieth twenty-first with the accompanying conflict of generations or the same cinematic reflection of the Director in the character — theories can be many. And, perhaps, Eastwood does what same as always: just shooting a film that wants to remove because he likes to shoot without any deep existential sense. Simple stories of simple people, told in the most unbiased, easy and tasteful. And because the "drug Mule" and is this movie, able to inspire, to amuse and think about life values, lying in the Director, always on the surface. No tricks, just a movie.

Pros: Plot, setting, humor, cast.

Cons: Speaker.
