I saw it on HBO Max and I have to say I thought it was good.  Better than The Mike and definitely better than Trouble With the Curve.  I thought Eastwood?s acting was better than The Mule and the kid was better than the kid in Gran Torino.

Reviewers seem to compare this to other Eastwood films, the younger, tougher Eastwood.  Just review it as it is, a drama where the character finds some things about himself along the way.  I thought it was a well done story and enjoyed it. 

Some of the scenes were really nice looking, good vista shots, and his direction was well done.

Hi everyone,

Last year, when we learned that Clint would be back both as an actor and a director in Cry Macho, a film project based on a novel, some of us seemed to be really excited or enthusiastic, if I am correct.
We also talked about the title Cry Macho and how it seemed to have some meanings in Clint Eastwood films.

So, if you have already seen the film, could you say if you enjoyed it or not ? And Why ?
In your opinion, could you tell us how Cry Macho stands in Clint Eastwood filmography ?

Thank you :)

I thought it was OK. The trailer didn't excite me, so I wasn't going into it with major expectations.

I was worried if The Mule, which was decent, but nothing more was his last performance. While I didn't think Cry Macho was something I loved, I was happy to find it something I liked. The tones of drama, suspense and some humor blend nicely and so does the chemistry with Eastwood and his costars. While still a good actor, his body movements look noticeably wobbly, but there's still screen charisma and the story was mostly interesting aside from an unnecessary subplot of Clint healing animals so to speak and they tried to have a romantic relationship between Eastwood and a waitress. The problem is she doesn't speak English and it would be tough for him to understand since he keeps needing translations. Subtitles appear very randomly in this movie. It took over 30 years to make this movie and though it wasn't great, at least I was happy his last performance was a good movie.
