At the tender age of 89, avowed libertarian Clint Eastwood approaches anarcho-libertarianism, which makes this one of the dumbest films of his filmography. This is despite good and sometimes touching performances from all the leading actors involved. Too bad there probably isn’t enough time for Eastwood the artist to abandon the depth of his inculcation in liberal hegemonic ideology. For it is in the stubborn confrontation with the politically correct that recent Eastwood directed films find a liveliness. But it is honestly a case of the pot calling the kettle black, and even navel-gazing, that has already worn thin.
