    Really, really wanted to like it, but a really out-of-place love story got shoehorned into it, and it really took away the flow and a lot of enjoyment I could otherwise had gotten out of it.

    I didn't think a modernized Shane would work, but this was a pretty solid update. I'd still pick the real thing ten times out of ten, though -- and I say that even though Sydney Penny's in this one and not the other! (Making the kid a slightly older lovestruck girl instead of a very young awestruck boy complicates things needlessly, IMO.)

    Qué icónica la chama sedienta por el predicador.
    No le vi mucha trama, pero me gustaría volverla a ver -sin doblaje :(-

    The best thing about this was the cinematography. There are a lot of beautiful shots, really making use of the mountain landscapes. The worst thing about this was the script. The story is dull and a lot of the dialogue was terrible. It's just plain bad. I don't think I was ever really engaged with the plot. Nothing exciting happened.

    Pale Rider is a good but not great western. Eastwood's certainly done better and more unique films within the genre, but by itself, this is a pretty good film.

    Eastwood's performance is very good, as a hero to a small town that's essentially bullied by a gang. I'd recommend it for that primarily.

    I found this interesting....over the last 38 years Clint Eastwood has only appeared in two westerns....his Oscar winning Unforgiven and this one, Pale Rider. This could actually be a remake of Clint's High Plains Drifter....as Clint plays a mysterious stranger (Clint says he is a ghost in this one) who arrives in a mining camp. Clint takes sides with struggling miners as they battle a rich mining company. Along the way Clint gets a change to avenge his death as…

    The talky parts were pretty boring. The action parts were above average. The final climax scene was impressive.

    The cinematography was solid. Clint Eastwood made good use of his beautiful locale, but the low budget prevents it from being any better than just depicting pretty scenery.

    The romance subplots were unnecssary.

    It was alright overall.

    "And I looked, and behold a pale horse. And his name that sat on him was Death . . . and Hell followed with him."- Megan Wheeler (reading from the bible)

    Pale Rider is a solid Western from Clint Eastwood, but not near his best. He is great as always and the rest of the cast does a fine job as well, but some scenes just seem pointless. During those particular scenes the film feels like it just slows down and becomes far less interesting. The ending is fantastic though. I'm sure it will be better on rewatch though. 7.5/10

    There was a time in my life when I thought I hated Western movies, now I'm starting to think I just watched the wrong ones. To be totally honest, I think this is the first Clint Eastwood Western I've every watched. It is about a group of gold prospectors who are working a small plot of land while being terrorized by a larger corporation that wants to steal their claim. Then a stranger rides into town and helps fight back.…
