    Some very good character moments and a generally interesting dismantling of the idea of "reputation" in the old west serve this movie well.

    This film makes murder appear much less glamorous than films usually do, making it highly appropriate for showing to unscrupulous types or wayward teens.

    I understand this film historically as a revisionist western and what it aims for with its story - a place where goodness runs only as deep as your pockets and the actions of your past are permanent stains - but I don't understand the enduring love and acclaim that the film has garnered.

    I did, however, love Richard Harris as the highfalutin gunslinger, "English Bob".

    BTW: Enjoying the german version (especially the german voice of Clint and Gene) much more than the original...

    "It's a hell of a thing, killing a man. Take away all he's got, and all he's ever gonna have."

    The mythology of the gunslinger is deeply rooted in the American subconscious. It's the image of the rough, tough justice-giver, one who is the virtual prototype for masculinity and an archetype that has been an ambassador for American culture the world over. Everybody knows the "cowboy." The Western genre of cinema has done its part to solidify this character into…

    Simply put one of the greatest westerns ever made and in my opinion a realistic portrayal of the old west. The story of an old gunslinger searching for security for his children and maybe even a tiny spark of redemption.

    Around the late 1970s-1980s the Western genre began to die. The genre that spawned classics such as “The Searchers” and “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” has been dying off. By the time of the early 1990s however there were two Westerns that brought attention and mass critical acclaim back to the genre. Those films were Kevin Costner’s “Dances with Wolves” and this film; “Unforgiven.”

    Unforgiven stars and is directed by Clint Eastwood, who starred in many Westerns before…

    This movie is about 22 years old and I've watched it now for the first time (shame on me). Clint Eastwood and Gene Hackman are awesome as always, story is very good and also I like western movies. The movie is really slow on some parts but the ending is epic. Deserves oscars which are given to it.

    A MASTERCLASS Film directed, co-starred by Clint Eastwood, I would not say further about this masterpiece, as I don't reckon I merely fit to review this movie. It is piece of gem. I truly am in love with its theme-music for Claudia. I reckon, I might write in detail about Clint Eastwood's character in the film.
