All Clint Eastwood Movies Ranked

Go ahead, punks, make your day: Take a look at all his starring movies by Tomatometer!

The Mule, opening Friday, continues an astonishing career that all began with blowing up a giant spider with a jet missile in Tarantula. Eastwood didn’t have any lines in that one, and not many more nine years later in A Fistful of Dollars, but that wasn’t going to stop him from becoming an international star. Further movies as the Sergio Leone’s Man With No Name made him the spaghetti Western icon, and the Dirty Harry series made him a man for modern times. Along the way, he picked up directing, cranking out movies with stunning efficiency, often giving himself the main role for a little career longevity, not to mention Best Picture wins with Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby. In The Mule, Eastwood directs once more and appears on-screen notably for the first time since Trouble With the Curve.

Feelin’ lucky? Pick any movie from Eastwood’s filmograhpy and you just might witness a piece of cinema legend.
