4.0 out of 5 stars Forty-three years older August 25, 2002
For those of us Clint Eastwood fans who remember him as the young and headstrong Rowdy Yates in the TV series RAWHIDE (1959-1966), going to see the latest Eastwood Big Screen epic is a sobering reminder that time catches up to us all.
In BLOOD WORK, Clint plays Terry McCaleb, a high profile FBI agent who suffers a severe heart attack while chasing (on foot) a vicious serial killer who leaves taunting messages for McCaleb at the crime scene. Terry finds that climbing over fences just isn't as easy at is used to be, but then a Clint Eastwood character in the old days would've just stood back and shot the perp down at long range with his .44 Magnum. Oh, well. In any case, it's now two years later and Terry is just off a heart transplant and retired to his boat. Graciella (Wanda De Jesus) shows up to request that McCaleb get back in harness to investigate the death of her sister, who was murdered in a convenience store holdup. McCaleb at first demurs, but then has a change of heart, so to speak, when he learns that the dead woman was the donor of his new ticker.
The best part of BLOOD WORK, also directed and produced by Eastwood, is watching Clint depict the aging, debilitated and physically vulnerable McCabe, who can perhaps be viewed as a composite of all the other heroes played by Clint over the decades, only older. Eastwood, possibly mindful of his own mortality, is perhaps acknowledging time's inexorable march through Terry's persona. Beyond that, the film had its uneven moments. Paul Rodriguez plays Detective Arrango, a Latino LAPD cop so gratuitously buffoonish and unpleasant that I'm surprised the Brotherhood of Latino Law Enforcement Officers isn't suing. Anjelica Huston overacts her role as McCabe's cardiologist, Dr.

5.0 out of 5 stars A more than solid Eastwood vehicle August 20, 2002
We all know good 'ol Clint isn't getting any younger, and he knows that himself which is part of what makes Blood Work as good as it is. Eastwood plays an FBI agent drawn out of retirement to find a serial killer which Eastwood had a heart attack chasing. What develops is a game of cat & mouse between Eastwood and the killer, culminating in a stunning revelation and an ending similar to that of another Eastwood starring/directing effort; In the Line of Fire. Blood Work is a smart, intelligent thriller and a throwbacl to the days when movies didn't have to rely on anemic storylines and bloated special effects to get going. Sadly though, Blood Work will most likely go ignored by audiences while overblown, mindless action pics like XXX rake in the millions. Still though, you should really give Blood Work a try, it's a real gem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Work August 13, 2002
There is a masked hold-up artist/killer on the loose, and the police believe the cold-hearted criminal to be selecting the locations purposefully, and that his victims are just unlucky, random individuals. Retired FBI agent Terry McCaleb thinks that it is the *locations* which are random, and that the killer's victims are very, very specific. Will his wisdom prevail? That is one of the interesting plot elements in "Blood Work", the 20th movie starring Clint Eastwood that he has also directed.
Eastwood plays McCaleb, a gritty man with a gentle streak, who was forced into retirement after suffering a heart attack while chasing a serial killer on his last case. Two years later, McCaleb receives a new heart, and the serial killer is still at-large. Terry McCaleb is Eastwood playing his age. We know that this man used to possess solid physical strength, but age has diminished that strength, so now he is left to rely almost solely on his keen intellect. That intellect does not fail him, although it is sometimes slow to catch on.
McCaleb is enjoying retirement on his boat, when he is approached by the sister of the woman whose heart he now has. She explains to him that her sister was murdered (one of the victims of the aforementioned hold-up artist/killer), and she would like for McCaleb to crack the case and find the murderer. At first reluctant, the former FBI man soon acquiesces to the sister's request, and the game is afoot.
I found "Blood Work" enjoyable. Watching Eastwood so easily play the role of McCaleb is fun in and of itself, and the story is always involving. It isn't necessarily as realistic as it could have been, but that is part of its charm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gosh Darn it I Liked It January 2, 2003
Format:DVD
I rented this film kind of expecting it to be junk. Why do I rent things expecting they are junk? 9/10ths of movie rental is the masochistic art of self-inflicted stinkers. But this movie surprised me. Possibly its because I watched it on four separate nights, a little bit at a time, and allowed each segment to settle into my subconscious. I felt I got to know the characters. The movie was slow and easy-going, even though a killer is on the loose and Clint is prone to play fast and loose with buckshot on what seems to be a Culver City street. His fetching black female cop friend gets out her own piece and shoots hell out of the suspected perp's vehicle even though she doesn't even know what's going on. All this and the movie has a subdued, contemplative feel. You gotta like this movie.
And then there's Buddy, the self-described Boat Bum who is Clint's next door neighbor down at the marina. I really fell for this character. So minor, so plausible as an ordinary, idle man who knows that he is a loser, preferring to sit life out on the sidelines with a sad little smile and a case of beer. This man is so human, so full of muted pathos. The movie is a strangely meditative cop drama where all these little characters loom larger than life because, without realizing it, our attention dwells on them so long. We think we're watching an action movie. We feel like we're watching an action movie. And yet, subliminally, we are fed a muted, fragile human-interest picture where almost all of the characters are somehow frail.
