    5/10: Directed by one of my favorite directors - Clint Eastwood, this Western came up short, was disappointed cause I heard all the good reviews. The bad guys (even the big boss) are so easy to kill, and are very cartoon-ish. However, the movie settings and cinematography is brilliant.

    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.)

    Looks fantastic considering the year it was made it falls short at times but its very entertaining.

    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.
