Last night was Joe Kid
, another Clint Eastwood western.
I liked this more than High Plains Drifter. Here Clint was playing a character you could like and was easily more relatable. The role struck me as having a similar type character to Liam Neeson's in Taken
Joe apparently had retired from a life of tracking and hunting and killing. He seemed to take to just living one day at a time and at his own pace regardless of the law. He took one a type of Otis from the Andy Griffith show as well.
But then, something happens to people he cares about and he reassumes the mantle of badass to make amends.
I'd grade this as an A-
