Not sure where the awards came from. Basically everything about the film is average. The new True Grit is a much better Western, if that's what you need. Hostiles with Bale is also a very good serious, emotionally and cognitively meaningful film. The only remarkable part of this movie was Hackman's performance.

I honestly did not think I would watch this until the end. I hated the way the women were treated, although that was probably true to life at the time, leaving two young children alone on a pig farm is unbelievable, there was so much violence. But I wanted to find out what all the fuss was about with this movie. Oscar winner for best picture and Oscar winner for best actor. There were some very good cinema shots but often I would find a scene somewhat off-kilter. Just so unbelievable as to be laughable. Oh well, to each their own. Love it or not, whatever!

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.

"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."
