Another wonderful western with Eastwood and also fun with Shirley Maclaine as opponents. A western with a dose of humor without it becoming a parody or slapstick. I didn't know that the French also fought in the American Civil War. You don't see that much in westerns. The film has some colorful characters, Don Siegel knows what he's doing and it clearly clicks with Clint Eastwood (a year later they make Dirty Harry together) and of course the appropriate music by Ennio Morricone. It's not a top western, but the ingredients are clearly present and fans will certainly enjoy this.

Eastwood does his spaghetti trick again in this American-Mexican production.

You'd almost think it's an Italo Western, but no, all the ingredients are there.

The recipe still seems to work.

The mainstay here, however, is the wonderful Shirley MacClaine, who practically plays Clint off the screen, making the film more enjoyable for me than a number of other Eastwood westerns.

After "The Outlaw Josey Wales", "Two Mules for Sister Sara" is my most re-watched Eastwood movie.

Would love to see you again soon

If you like Eastwood's western movies, you'll probably like this one too, at least most of the movie.
After a good start , the film loses quite a bit of power and the whole does not always keep the viewer interested .

That's probably also a possible explanation for the fact that I've watched this movie on TV at least ten times over the course of 20 years, and got to see the ending for the first time last week.

There are also plenty of pluses.
Two Mules is beautifully shot and has a reasonable appearance of the well-known Eastwood spaghetti's. By the way, don't expect full-blooded spaghetti/zapata, the film is more of an American western that approaches such an atmosphere.
It is no coincidence that Eastwood is also dressed as the nameless man.

As far as I'm concerned, the ending completely misses the point, the entire film has a little serious charge. A machete through someone's face doesn't quite fit there .

The interaction between the (well playing) nun and our cowboy was good. The presence of the/a Mexican revolution can often add something to westerns, here I found these characters much less interesting.

Not bad, certainly not a favorite either.
