Blu-ray Review - Two Mules for Sister Sara


In their second collaboration during a fruitful creative run throughout the 1960s and '70s, star Clint Eastwood and director Don Siegel elected to return to old business with 1970's "Two Mules for Sister Sara." Inspired by Eastwood's work with filmmaker Sergio Leone and the global success of their "Dollars" trilogy, the production mounted a vague homage to the Man with No Name, only here he had a name, and plenty of dialogue. Saddling up with a score from Ennio Morricone and gorgeous Mexican locations, "Two Mules for Sister Sara" is a solid return to icy Eastwoodian action, this time pairing the iconic figure with Shirley MacLaine, a noted intimidator in her own right. Against all odds, the stars share spunky, charged chemistry, making this heat-stroked trip across the open desert highly entertaining, observing a pair of mismatched travelers as they unite to achieve a common goal. Plenty of drinking, flirtations, and short tempers are shared, and while the movie doesn't offer an overwhelming sense of conflict, sly personalities and chewy western traditions are big enough to capture attention.
