"Clint Eastwood's Cry Macho takes a few mins to get going, and then it's lovely. He's made a movie a year since 2014, most of them excellent including American Sniper. Ben Davis cinematog is Oscar worthy."

Still no reviews around despite the fact that the film opens tomorrow.
Only the occasional star track surfaced and looks appealing considering the evaluation ranges  between 3 &. 4 out of 5.

The reviews are in and they are not so kind I'm afraid.

There was a review on PJ Media by Gwendolyn Sims who gave it a nice review, but to be perfectly honest here I've read about a dozen reviews and it's not good. Just about every review has used the words dull or meandering a great deal. It's almost like Cry Macho was more of a TV movie that should had been left on the shelf. Oh well......

Seems to be a real mixed bag on Rotten Tomatoes.

Without getting into details I really feel that rightly or wrongly the perceived image of Clint's political views have made him an easy target for younger "woke" reviewers.

From what I've read in many of the reviews or articles is that obviously this movie had the opportunity to be made over the past 40 years including by Eastwood himself. The story line is conducive to the late 70's and the character of Milo is at least 50 years younger. From from I've read also there are too many areas in the movie that weren't plausible. Regardless I guess everyone has to judge for themselves.

    4.5 million opening weekend Box Office which is dismal to say the least. A lot of that probably has to do with the older audiences not being in a rush to set foot in a movie theatre amid Covid and HBO Max is playing it plus another dopey Marvel movie to contend with. The mixed reviews certainly didn't help. If this movie makes eventually a profit it will be due to the overseas market when it's released......maybe...The movie just doesn't seem that interesting for a audience to go see...
