    Simply stunning. Eastwood is amazing. Freeman is amazing. Hackman is amazing. Harris is amazing. Damn, so good.

    Clint Eastwood's "Unforgiven" takes place at that moment when the old West was becoming new. Professional gunfighters have become such an endangered species that journalists follow them for stories. Men who slept under the stars are now building themselves houses. William Munny, "a known thief and a murderer," supports himself with hog farming. The violent West of legend lives on in the memories of men who are by 1880 joining the middle class. Within a few decades, Wyatt Earp would…

    Can't find anything to say about it at the moment, except that I loved it. Yet another gem of the 90's and yet another gem of the western genre.

    Brilliant in the way it breaks the old and tired clichés of Western movies. Unforgiven makes every gunshot have weight and meaning behind them and it contains some very powerful scenes. It feels like anti-western to me. Fascinating characters and brilliant performances by Eastwood, Hackman, Freeman and Harris.

    "I'll see you in hell, William Munny."
    "...Yeah."

    The quintessential postmodern western. Classical storytelling rhythms make way for poignant characterization, iconic performances, and riveting suspense sequences. Although the film makes a point of not shying away from realistic pathos or brutality, Eastwood's Old West is mythic, mysterious, and feels about as far removed from our world as Peter Jackson's Middle Earth. It's a place immortalized in legend until the end of time, and simply getting to spend time there with this fascinating set of characters is perhaps the greatest pleasure of Unforgiven.

    This is either my second or third time seeing Unforgiven, and I'm glad to say that I finally get why Clint Eastwood's final western is so well loved as a movie. My earlier viewings were marred by my own inattention, so that is on me, and not Unforgiven. This is a fantastic piece of cinema both as its own movie and as Eastwood's farewell to the genre that made his career.

    Like Eastwood's earlier The Outlaw Josey Wales, Unforgiven is…

    Unforgiven is probably has the best acting of all films in the "Western" genre.

    When retired gunslinger Bill Munny [Eastwood] accepts his last bounty to ride to a town with a younger man, and picking up his old partner [Freeman] on the way. They end up taking on a whole town including it's Sheriff [Gene Hackman]

    This is on classic that should not be missed by anyone.

    It’s fitting that Clint Eastwood hasn’t returned to the western since Unforgiven, since it plays as a swansong and elegy for his great revisions of the genre in the 70s and 80s. Dedicated to Sergio Leone and Don Siegel, it’s a fairly stark revenge narrative revolving around a handful of figures on the verge of retirement, including Will Munny (Eastwood), a reformed bounty hunter, his ex-partner Ned Logan (Morgan Freeman) and “Little Bill” (Gene Hackman), a brutal sheriff. All three…

    Saw this one quite awhile ago, and had just seen the final 30 minutes again ever since. But I caught it tonight again on Bravo and I was as amazed as I was the first time, if not more. What a magnificent yet tragic film. Great in almost every aspect. That last conversation between Munny and the kid by the tree near the end is just what acting is about, and the last showdown at the saloon is pure intensity.
