Kidnapped boy Phillip Perry (T.J. Lowther) strikes up a friendship with his captor Butch Haynes (Kevin Costner): an escaped convict on the run from the law, while the search is headed up by honorable Texas Ranger "Red" Garrett (Clint Eastwood).
A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
After escaping from a Huntsville prison, convict Robert "Butch" Haynes (Kevin Costner) and his partner Terry Pugh (Keith Szarabajka) kidnap a young boy, Phillip Perry (T.J. Lowther), and flee across Texas. As they travel together, Butch and Phillip discover common bonds and suffer the abuses of the outside "Perfect World". In pursuit is Texas Ranger "Red" Garnett (Clint Eastwood) and Criminologist Sally Gerber (Laura Dern).Written by

In July, Clint Eastwood was confronted with the claims of a thirty-nine-year-old woman from Lakewood, Washington who had researched her adoption and ascertained that he was her biological father. After having his lawyers and business managers check her out, Clint agreed to have dinner with this woman, Laurie Murray, who was married to a rich man and was happy to guard her anonymity, and promised to stay in touch. Publicly, Ms. Murray's existence remained completely unacknowledged until December 2018, when she attended the premiere of Clint's movie, The Mule (2018), and identified herself as his daughter.

When Butch is fleeing the police after leaving the store and smashing the police cars, they chase his car into an alley behind some buildings. He cuts the wheel left and gets into a wild skid and you see the hubcap come flying off the passenger side front wheel and roll away. But in the next scene, and the whole rest of the movie, the hubcap is back on the wheel. See more »
Very few directors have the talent Clint Eastwood has for making intense movies with greater depth. In this movie, Clint is no exception and he stars multiple characters in this movie, while repeatedly crossing the lines between good and bad.
In various parts of the movie, Butch (Kevin Costner) is depicted as the adoptive father and role model of the kid he has kidnapped, and they bond like a family, and he becomes like the father the kid never had and allows the kid to do all the stuff his controlling mother would not let him do. The butch character sells the movie and having Clint Eastwood on the manhunt gives us a great feature.
On the other hand, we are led into the facts that some of the police and feds who are pursuing this man are in fact closer to thugs than the person they are pursuing. Clint Eastwood makes no distinctions of good and evil and continuously develops the characters throughout the movie in order to give a more emotionally invoking movie.
