Clint embraced the process of growing older and more fragile in this leisurely paced and thoughtful cop film. Clint has grown older and wiser, both as an actor, a producer, and a director. Even though I guessed fairly early on who the killer was and the film ran a little long, this film is about the journey. Paced much like "Line of Fire" it also is about the character as much as the crimes, and that, coupled with the charisma of Eastwood, gives this film five stars.
Clint Eastwood is legendary F.B.I. profiler Terry McCaleb. He is tracking a serial killer when this film opens known as 'Code Killer', as he has been enjoying the chase, leaving Terry messages written in blood at each crime scene. But Terry finds him and will surely catch him in a foot chase, only he suffers a heart attack so massive during the pursuit that only a heart transplant saves his life, forcing his retirement from the Bureau. The killings stop when Terry retires.
Terry is taking the advice of his cardiologist Bonnie (Angelica Huston) and taking it easy on his boat. Jeff Daniels is great as his next door pal Buddy. Things are going smoothly in the immediate days after the transplant when the darkly beautiful Graciella shows up and wants the former F.B.I. Agent to go look into the murder of her sister, killed at random during a robbery. Terry knows he is not up to the task even though he feels sorry for her and her sister's son, who has lost his mother. But his attraction to Graciella and his own guilt and sense of honor force him to risk everything when he learns the heart beating in his chest belonged to the murdered woman.
Buddy becomes his sidekick as he slowly begins to get up to speed.

Format: DVD
Resigned to quietly living out the rest of his days aboard his houseboat, former FBI agent Terry McCaleb is persuaded to take on one last case by the sister of the murdered girl whose heart he has been given. Yes - that's the story.

A more familiar story is this: It's a film that isn't as good as the book (of the same title) on which it is based, in this case one by Michael Connelly and which I read a couple of years ago. I already knew that Connelly was far from happy that the lead role McCaleb was played by Clint Eastwood, because he made that quite clear in the sequel A Darkness More Than Night, when McCaleb made some grumbling comments about it! It was rather odd - as if Connelly was doing a review of this film in his own later novel, and giving it a one-star thumbs down! That's arrogance for you...

The thing is, I agree with Connelly. His book was excellent and although Eastwood is obviously a Hollywood A-lister, he's the best part of 30 years older than the character in the book, which is a bit daft. But as he produced and directed this film, as he often does, he took the lead as well, a mistake in my view because he is so well-known that his tough-guy image was a distraction from the vulnerability of heart-transplant patient McCaleb. Of course most people seeing this film will not have read the book, so for them I would say that this is just a by-the-numbers thriller that felt as if it should have been a one-hour-long TV drama rather than a fully-fledged cinema release. If you're an Eastwood fan it will be a disappointment, and even more so if (like me) you're a fan of both the writer and leading man too. Very forgettable, but not actually bad, to be fair. I believe the book deserved something much better, with root-and-branch change of producer, writer, director and actors. It was worth being made into a film, but the people responsible have made rather a hash of it.

Some reviewers have complained that Clint has changed the villain in his interpretation of the film from the book. Perhaps because many of us haven"t read Connelly"s novel the eventual revelation,though not entirely surprising,seems quite plausable and works OK.
Clint"s trademark intensity which he brings to his films is here as is his good charactorisation of even the peripheral players in this thriller/drama.
I appreciate that much of the detail and intricacies from the book are missing(I bow to you readers of the novel). However to me this film stands up alone as a highly watchable story with an intriguing plot-line.
Not his best work, but still engrossing and highly recommended.

Format: VHS Tape
I would expect a wide range of responses to "Blood Work," with the key factor being at what point in the proceedings you went from being behind in figuring out what was going on to getting way ahead of the game. Once again Clint Eastwood is working in front and behind the camera, playing Terry McCaleb, who is an F.B.I. Profiler working on the case of the Code Killer. Literally on the heels of the serial killer, McCaleb suffers a massive heart attack, but still manages to put a bullet in the fleeing suspect. We then jump ahead two years to a point where McCaleb is retired and ending his second month with a new heart. Then Graciella Rivers (Wanda De Jesús) shows up at boat and says she wants him to investigate the murder of her sister. McCaleb declines, since he is retired from the force and recovering from a heart transplant, but Graciella trumps his objections by telling him that it is her sister's heart that is now beating in his chest. McCaleb feels obligated to investigate, even though it means stepping on the toes of the local cops (Paul Rodriguez and Dyaln Walsh as the unfriendly cops and Jaye Winston as the helpful one).
McCaleb is not well; we know this because everybody constantly tells him and his doctor (Anjelica Huston) has a fit every time he even spends time thinking hard. But McCaleb has a debt to repay, and as he investigates the murder he, of course, uncovers things that none of the other cops are picking up on. I know exactly what I want to say about this type of thriller, but even announcing in general terms what is happening here would give the game away. I caught on about five minutes before McCaleb did and while I liked the revelation of what exactly had been done and why, I have to admit the film is all downhill by that point.
