  The best Western of all time

| | See all IantoDavies's reviews (7)

Ultimate Clint. As much as I love the Spaghetti Westerns, this film has it all; a simple but very effective story, fantastic performances, a superb script and great cinematography. Absolute perfection.

  Unforgettable

  Unforgiving

| | See all 357scorpion's reviews (22)

Super film, gr8 quality picture albeit cramped up between two thick black lines again - bigger the tv - the worse it gets.
Sentiment mixed with aggression, comedy, serious - Eastwood again has taken a steady old story of cowboy revenge and imported the best stars to get it accross in the best way possible.
Watch it - own it.

  A perfect showcase for a perfect film

| | See all RJNeb2's reviews (702)

This is a superlative movie, one of the defining moments in Eastwood's outstanding career. Tough, mean and gritty, it boasts superb performances from a brilliant cast and now here it is looking great on Blu-ray. Jack N. Green's Oscar-nominated cinematography uses only natural light so the interiors are deep and dark, whilst still making the most of the starkly magnificent Alberta landscapes. An absolute must.

  'one of the best westerns in recent years'

| | See all rbmusicman's reviews (896)

'will munny' ('clint eastwood' ) once a ruthless 'killer' now lives on a small-holding struggling to make ends meet, he lives with his two young children, his wife had passed on '3' years ago.
a young rider appears and offer's 'will' a share of '1000' dollars to kill off a couple of cow-hands that had earlier disfigured a 'hooker'
'will' tells the rider he wasn't like that anymore, his dear departed wife had put him on the right path, the rider leaves but the offer is still there.
'will' starts to think about what the money would do for his family.
'will' collects a partner that used to ride with him in years past ( played by 'morgan freeman' ) they set off to catch up with the 'rider'
a would be gunman.
the town they are heading toward is run by a no-compromise,no-nonsense sheriff ( played by 'gene hackman' )
the film has several violent scenes, and yet 'clint eastwood' who also directs the film allows a few moments of humour at his own expense.
also included in this star-studded western is 'richard harris' who plays 'english bob' a notorious gun-man who arrives in town before
'will' and his companions for the same '1000' dollars.
the sheriff is soon on 'bob's case.
i have seen several films directed by 'clint eastwood' and have not
been disappointed yet.
if by chance you have never seen this late '90's' classic your in for a treat.
does the film transfer well on to a high-def format ? ...yes, but there
are not that many explosive scenes in the film that really show the format at it's brilliant best.
