  1. At the last, we're left with a film that tries to doll up a conventional genre with hints of depth, hoping to disguise the cross-dressing by putting it in the shape of an epic. Murnau, Mizoguchi, Ford, even you authors of the Book of Genesis, rest easy. [12 Oct 1992]

    First off, this would be a 9.5 out of 10. Great western film. Acting is good. Morgan is good, and Clint is really good. Score all right. Story is amazing. A great tale of the wild, old west. Action is also well done. Overall, unforgiven is great. It is best picture material, and one of the best westerns. You have to see this movie. Full Review »

    Unforgiven is a boring, meandering effort from Eastwood. It goes between the two plot lines but never really makes it interesting. The script is a bit cliché, and it tries too hard to impress everyone, especially the Academy. I'm very surprised that it won Best Picture, but at the same time, I'm not surprised. Full Review »

    Eastwood was consecrated by movies westerns, but only two ever had total control and chances to impose their point of view before starting the review is important to note, DIRECTOR CLINT EASTWOOD is much more sensitive and emotional than the actor clint esatwood, so in short: it creates a film that reflects on the violence contained in the westers spent dealing with more realistic and dramatic way, that alone would be worth it to watch the movie together as their performances, but perhaps his only problem is his swelling principamelte late in the first and following up for the second act, yet it is given.
