    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.

  1. It's powerful entertainment. [22 Sept 1992, p.A16(E)]
  2. Plays out its drama with enough old-fashioned sobriety to lend the proceedings a classical air, offering the comfort of familiarity rather than the thrill of discovery. [13 Aug 1992]

    It's the actor/director's best movie - and the best Western by anybody in over 20 years. [7 Aug 1992]
