Movie Info

From Warner Bros. Pictures comes director/producer Clint Eastwood's uplifting and poignant drama "Cry Macho." The film stars Eastwood as Mike Milo, a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who, in 1979, takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man's young son home from Mexico. Forced to take the backroads on their way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman finds unexpected connections and his own sense of redemption.

Critic Reviews for Cry Macho

All Critics (167) | Top Critics (45)

Nobody has turned getting old into a project like Eastwood has, the weariness deepening while the swagger fades like a mirage, leaving him frailer, more exposed and more recognisably human. But still Clint, still the myth.

There's something touching about seeing the 91-year-old Eastwood in such a reflective mood.

Terribly dated, messy and more than a little rough around the edges.

November 12, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Clint Eastwood's best movies have an elegiac quality - they are the films of an older man, full of regrets - and this latest effort from the 91-year-old screen icon is elegiac squared.

The film's presence in 21st century cinemas is a marvel. It is like turning up at the ferry port to find yourself ushered on to a tea clipper. A rickety tea clipper.

This Tex-Mex drama about a retired rodeo star on a mercy mission has an intermittent dawdling charm. It's also slack and featherbrained - and set in the late 1970s, but you can barely tell.
