However he is about to become under the scrutiny of DEA agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper) who is determined to put an end to the Mexican drug cartel’s operations.

Acting / Characters

Clint Eastwood plays Earl Stone, a horticulturist in his eighties that changes occupation. Meanwhile Bradley Cooper plays DEA Colin Bates, a man looking to stop the Mexican drug cartel from moving drugs around America via mules.
