    Westerns are awesome. I know, I was initially a skeptic for these movies about the west and the Murican frontier, and the cowboys... but after viewing some John Ford movies my skepticism changed to excitement, and though the genre is still rated overall low compared to some of my other favorite genres, I appreciate the skills it takes to showcase the days gone by, Surprisingly despite my love for films like The Searchers and Rio Bravo it's The Magnificent Seven…

    Classic 80's Western when everyone thought the genre was dead and gone....Eastwood brings it back and it does it better than anyone, in my own personal opinion. A young Chris Penn does a great bad guy here and Michael Moriarty who is extremely underrated as an actor, does a great job as the helpless family man. Eastwood plays the stranger with no name like he does in just about every western hes in, and protects a struggling family from a…

    If you like cowboys, Clint Eastwood, and kickin ass, then this is the film for you. It is an easy to understand white hat versus black hat, future versus past, tech versus old school, struggle and we find ourselves rooting for the underdog whose only chance against evil is Clint Eastwood. Great flick. Check it out.

    Western profundo, intenso y violento. Donde un personaje apocaliptico como Predicador encarna el héroe violento aunque en búsqueda de un ideal de justicia y defensa de las causas de los mas necesitados. Sobresalen temas como la amistad, la lucha por los ideales, la ética, los pasajes bíblicos y los duelos. Predicador Es un personaje inolvidable aunque al mismo tiempo misterioso del que no sabemos mucho, ni su nombre, ni de donde viene, ni para donde va. Al mismo tiempo, es…

    Eastwood has done thousands of westerns, and it is hard not to see this one as rather, well, pale in comparison. It feels like it takes on a tired and old storyline that you have seen many times before, and made in 1985 it also feels like it came a few years too late. Not that you can't make westerns nowadays, but this one just felt more like a camping trip than a real classic western. Eastwood is great at…

    I have seen bits and parts of all the Clint Eastwood westerns through out the years. But I am going to make a solid attempt to watch all of them fully. Pale Rider is classic Eastwood. I liked Pale Rider but can't say I loved it. Today westerns are a lost art and very seldom see the big screen. So its nice to get back to the roots with classic Eastwood.

    One of Clint's great Westerns, this is great flowing film; lacks the intensity of Unforgiven or the humour of Josey Wales. But it has so much charm and the Preacher has enough history, most of it dark, to make it an intriguing film.
    That the history is not explained but its tremendous tragedy framed for us by the dying Sheriff's last words, " You " only makes it more fascinating.
    Truly one of the great Westerns.

    Clint Eastwood's third Western (of four) as star and director finds him embodying another nameless character with more than just a hint of supernatural qualities. In many ways "Pale Rider" is a close cousin or companion, if not an outright re-working, of his 1973 Western "High Plains Drifter".

    The supernatural elements that lie just beneath the surface are in many ways the most interesting thing about "Pale Rider". None of them are ever explained, and I always find myself becoming…
