    A return to solid form for Eastwood.
    Back to his western roots, Clint is at his strongest here.
    This is a great throwback to his older films.

    Well done, sir. Well done.

    Me gusta pensar en esta película como una “continuación” de El bueno, el feo y el malo, Por un puñado de dólares o La muerte tenía un precio. Tenemos a un Eastwood que hace una vez más de "Hombre sin nombre”, esta vez como “Predicador” (cómo mola ese puto pseudónimo para un justiciero) que llega a un lugar con problemas y trata de solucionarlos molando fuertote. Me gusta pensar que Blondie se ha hecho mayor y se ha redimido, volviéndose…

    The least original, least ambitious of Eastwood's self-directed westerns is still solidly crafted and enjoyable, very attractively shot on location in the mountains of Idaho and features excellent performances from the likes of Michael Moriarty and Carrie Snodgrass, great actors, criminally underused eleswhere. The final shootout is slackly handled, otherwise I'd have added an extra half a star.

    Ο Κλίνταρος είναι ο μυστηριώδης τύπος του τίτλου,που αφού κάνει μια εντυπωσιακότατη είσοδο στην ταινία λέγοντας μια από τις γνωστές θανατηφόρες του ατάκες γρυλίζοντας όπως μόνο αυτός ξέρει,αναλαμβάνει να προστατέψει καταυλισμό χρυσοθήρων που τρομοκρατούνται από μεγαλοεργολάβο -γαιοκτήμονα της περιοχής ώστε να του παραδώσουν τη γη τους, αναγκάζοντας τον έτσι μιας και τα βρίσκει σκούρα με τον Κλιντ να φέρει έναν μπροστινό για να καθαρίσει για πάρτη του (κάτι σαν το Μπόμπολας/Θεοδωράκης δηλαδή).Πολύ καλό γουέστερν που με την άνεση που μας…

    A girl wishes for a protector for her mining village and they get a violent "preacher" who kicks the tar out of Jaws from the Bond movies (including a sledge hammer to the junk) and Willard from Footloose (who is a bit out of his depth opposite Clint).

    This is one of my favorite westerns and Eastwood films. I grew up with this movie playing regularly in our household, and I'm taken back each time I watch it. My fathers love of westerns was not lost on me, though I thought so at the time. I had such a great time reliving this movie and remembering all the times that my family watched this.

    In Clint Eastwood's powerful Western "Pale Rider" a small prospecting community is terrorized by members of a nearby mining company who want to take over their land. In rides Clint Eastwood as a nameless Preacher, answering a little girl's prayers that a savior will come to protect them.

    As far as the genre of Western goes, "Pale Rider" is top-notch. It offers all of the iconography associated with the genre and adds its own special spices to the stew. What…

    Gorgeous location,

    Not a Bechdel film

    Another majestic performance from a screen icon, pale rider is another outstanding western which for me is along side the likes of unforgiven and high plains drifter.

    If this was the first Western you'd ever seen, I bet you would really like it.

    I did not.

    And I see Clint Eastwood is as bad at using fake dead dogs as he is at using fake live babies.

    Full disclosure: I watched this on TV, so the editing was butchered and there were commercials, none of which did the film any favors.

    With all that in mind, I'm not really sure what to make of this. The story is a barely-altered regurgitation of the classic "Shane," and "Pale Rider" alternates between wholeheartedly embracing the western tropes, updating them for a more disillusioned 80s audience, and throwing in random hints at ambiguity. As with many of Eastwood's films, there…
