Prosee review

...and then sometimes they do! When The Unforgiven was given what is probably its umpteenth television showing last night this was one viewer who was determined not to miss it. I can't say I've been an enormous fan of everything Clint Eastwood has ever done, particularly in recent years, but you...

Projust like the old days...

Consnothing at all

Frequently hailed as the best western in over twenty years (at the time of its relese anyway), Unforgiven is a classic, brutal revenge story set in the old western outbacks of the developing United States of America. If you had to name one living actor associated with the slowly fading Western...

“The great Western revival”

published 25/05/2009

ProFantastic acting and atmosphere

ConsNothing really

1992 saw a sort of revival attempt at the modern Western, with Clint Eastwood taking up the reins in control of this epic and excellent piece of Western cinema. It is one of those films which sees a main plot line that is not the primary focus of the film, and as such it is entirely engrossing...

~ ~ Forget your John Wayne’s and your run of the mill Western movies that glamorise the Wild West. If you enjoy cowboy films, then take a look at this offering “Unforgiven” (1992), that shows you what life was really like in the pioneering days in America, warts and all...

“Clint is back!”

published 09/07/2000

ProDifferent but just as good as previous westerns

ConsPoor DVD Extras

A Clint Eastwood classic, both for his acting and his direction and is definitely one of the best Westerns to be seen for the last twenty years. The plot is central to the film so I'll not reveal too much of it; suffice it to say that it is a tale of justice, murder and revenge coupled with a...

“An intelligent western.”

published 16/02/2009

ProDark, gritty, great acting, not just shooting.

ConsNone!!

Thought I'd crack this film on again today, and I thought; this deserves a review! WE all know that Clint is the king of the west when it comes to films, with absolute classics such as 'The Good the Bad and the Ugly' which remains in my opinion the best western ever made. And now many years on...

Probrilliant western

Conshard hitting

This is a truley brilliant western showing the world a bit more in the manner of the way it is than the typical holywood film which is just pie in the sky. the characters seem like real people with real weaknesses striving for what they think is important. The film is a coarse griity one with few...

“Clint's Finest Hour”

published 18/07/2000

ProVery absorbing, well directed and acted

ConsNone

Unforgiven is an immensely absorbing western about a violent killer who has to face up to his own past and doesn't like what he sees, and his hopes for redemption. Clint Eastwood's finest film as director (deservedly winning an oscar) is a dark mixture of three of his previously directed westerns...

“Unforgiven - Forgiveable”

published 16/07/2000

ProActing, Plot, Photography, direction,

ConsPossibly to violent at times

A Superb Western of enormous proportions under the direction of Clint Eastwood. Clint Eastwood heads an all star cast including Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman. Eastwood plays William Munny, the baddest gunslinger in the whole of the west, or at least he used to be. Now he is a farmer but some...

Progreat story. great acting

Consnone i know of

This film is gripping from the moment you press play right through until the credits run. Being honest Clint Eastwood is one of my childhood hero's. To me he was invincible, so when the unforgiven begins and you see Mr Eastwood as a run down pig farmer, to me it was an unwelcome shock. As the...

Product Information : Unforgiven (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

In Clint Eastwood's acclaimed Western, Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman), a sadistic, dictatorial sheriff, enforces gun control on a tiny frontier town, doling out his own brand of due process as he sees fit. When he denies justice to the prostitutes of the town brothel, one of whom has been slashed by a client, the women hire Bill Munny (Eastwood), a reformed gunslinger, to gain vengeance. However, Munny must contend with his new moral code in the face of revisiting the life he left behind. Eastwood's directorial masterpiece also stars Morgan Freeman and Richard Harris.<BR><BR>UNFORGIVEN stands as a towering achievement, and it scooped numerous Academy Awards including Best Director, Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (Hackman). However, it is Eastwood's portrayal of William Munny that really impresses most, with the actor brilliantly conveying the world-weary character, and in doing so, manages to make a bold statement regarding his own place in the world.
