Strawberry Alice: "...Just because we let them smelly fools ride us like horses, don't mean we gotta let 'em brand us like horses. Maybe we ain't nothin' but whores, but we, by God, we ain't horses."

The Schofield Kid (shaken up after killing a man for the first time): "It don't seem real... how he ain't gonna never breathe again, ever... How he's dead. And the other one too. All on account of pulling a trigger." Will Munny: "It's a helluva thing, killin' a man. Take away all he's got, and all he's ever gonna have." The Schofield Kid: "Yeah, well, I guess they had it comin'." Will Munny: "We all got it comin', kid."

Will Munny (holding a rifle on everyone in the saloon, who just fell silent, after realizing who just walked in): "Who's the fellow owns this shithole?" (pause) "You. Fat man. Speak up." Skinny Dubois: "Uh, I... I own this establishment. I bought the place from Greeley for a thousand dollars." Will Munny (aiming Ned's Spencer rifle at man behind Skinny): "You better clear outta there." Man: "Yes, sir!" (vamooses) Little Bill Daggett: "Just hold it right there. Hold it...!" (Will shoots Skinny) "Well, sir, you are a cowardly son of a bitch! You just shot an unarmed man!" Will Munny: "Well, he should have armed himself if he's going to decorate his saloon with my friend."

Little Bill Daggett: "...You'd be William Munny out of Missouri. Killer of women and children." Will Munny: "That's right. I've killed women and children. I've killed just about everything that walks or crawled at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill, for what you did to Ned."

"She was a comely young woman and not without prospects. Therefore it was heartbreaking to her mother that she would enter into marriage with William Munny, a known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition. When she died, it was not at his hands as her mother might have suspected, but of smallpox. That was 1878."

I am sorely disappointed. One of Eastwood's worst.

This is one of my all time favorite movies, honestly whenever I find it on TV I watch it. Eastwood helps us remember what a great actor Gene Hackman is with this movie. You also realize why Morgan Freeman became one of his "go to" actors. Simply a great film.

Arguably the best Clint Eastwood movie ever made.

This is a 1992 American Western film produced and directed by Clint Eastwood.
It tells the story about William Munny, an aging outlaw and killer who takes on one more job years after he had turned to farming.
It is a hard-boiled western with cold-blooded shootings, dealing with the uglier aspects of violence and how complicated truths are distorted into simplistic myths about the Old West.
You would definitely have to have a willing suspension of disbelief when you see William Munny shoot many men and leave the town unharmed.

Clint Eastwood took all is western movie experience and put it into the film "The Unforgiven". He directs and stars in the movie with co-stars Gene Hackman and Richard Harris. Clint plays a retired gun slinger who comes out of retirement due to needing some money. He is older and may have lost something from his earlier days. I will leave it up to you if he has lost any of sharpness as a gunslinger. He comes to the town of Big Whisky where outlaws have made it difficult for honest citizens to live. The script is wonderful. Clint comes out a complex man to figure out. He is a paid killer, but he is ridding the town of outlaws. Don't miss a minute of the action! This is a great western!

The perfect western. No flash. No frills. A winding tale of the wild west with incredible characters and acting. The scenery is gorgeous and the costumes and sets make for a great period piece. So many great lines. The final fifteen minutes are the best ending possible. Great cast. Clint at his best.

While the characters of the story are fictional, you can see inspirations of real persons of the Old West in the novel. Little Bill Daggett reminded me of Tom Smith, the sheriff killed at Abilene in 1870. Smith beat up Big Hank and Wyoming Frank to announce his presence, and established an unpopular ‘no guns in town’ edict. The only Englishmen from the Old West who comes to memory is John Tunstall from the Lincoln County War, who hardly seems like a template for English Bob, the Duck of Death. There is no surprise that Strawberry Alice was the leader of the soiled doves because redheads were prized companions in the bed in the Old West. Of course, it does not hurt that Frances Fisher was involved romantically with Clint Eastwood at the time. This movie deserves its accolades, even though deserves has nothing to do with it.

"Malpaso". Clint Eastwood's film production company. Translation: "Bad road". Describes and foreshadows so many of The Man's killer flicks. And this one is on the top shelf. Four Oscars, including Best Picture, and Best Director (Mr. E.). Hackman won Best Actor, but I would've given it to Eastwood for that category, too. Maybe The Academy didn't want to overdo it, who knows. He's an older, reflective, remorseful, humbled bad@ss gunslinger in this, and that's a big part of its charm. The sequence where he's dancing with his unwilling-to-be-ridden/now a plow-horse was priceless. The tender exchange between he and the poor woman who got slashed (at the secluded prairie hideout) was quite touching. And the righteous climax at film's end is OUTSTANDING. The steely-eyed "Man With No Name", the avenger of those unjustly wronged, as in "Pale Rider", or "The Outlaw Josey Wales", to name a couple, was REBORN. Clint Eastwood changed the face of Westerns. The man is an icon. Due, in part, to two men he admired greatly, and whom he pays homage to at the end of the credits, as follows: "Dedicated to Sergio (Leone, who passed in '89, and directed him in his inimitable Spaghetti Westerns) and Don (Siegel, director of the "Dirty Harry" franchise, and passed in '91). And this piece, this final Western from him, is an incredible monument to his legacy. Tremendous film. FIVE STARS.

The hype ruined this one for me, or the film would have been held in my higher graces. However, it is definitely a good film. Best Picture ... I'm still not a hundred percent sure, but definitely a great film. It rewrites westerns, a genre that is pretty simple in its structure. It focuses on a new kind of hero, and really, this film is the ultimate love story. It isn't a romance, don't be confused. But the prologue and epilogue of the film say everything that needs to be said about a love that will never die, even when it does. And for that, I highly recommend this film to all audiences, young and old.
