Format: DVD
Until Dances with Wolves and then Eastwoods own Unforgiven this was the best western post 1970. Eastwood plays the title role who is a certainly a match for the man with no name, but unlike that character Josey Wales is not amoral, in fact quite the contrary.

This is the first movie that Eastwood directed that made people sit up and notice him as a filmmaker rather than an action hero. Some classic trademark Eastwood lines are in this film, perhaps the best of which is:

Bounty Hunter - "You're wanted Wales"
Josey Wales - "Reckon I'm right popular. You a Bounty Hunter?"
BH - "A man's got to do something for a living these days"
JW - "Dyin' ain't much of a livin' boy"

The difference with this film (over say the spagetti westerns) is that Eastwoods character gradually becomes part of a family like gang of people. Most noteably an aging Indian (played by Chief Dan George) which makes for some wonderfully understated comic moments. One of the strengths of this film is you do care what happens. Yes there are gun fights and people are killed but in the end there is a sort of reconcilliation.

Already by this stage of his career Eastwood had a regular team around him to make the film. Standout amongst which is Bruce Surtees cinematography. This really is beautiful looking film.

Thirty years after it was made, The Outlaw Josey Wales still stands up as Eastwood's finest outing as director. Like the later Unforgiven, it casts Eastwood in his traditional role of legendary gunfighter, but explores and humanizes the character, carrying him on a journey of genuine change and development. For me, this makes for a far more meaningful and enjoyable film than something like High Plains Drifter, in which Eastwood is just an inexplicable figure of vengeance; he isn't given a lot of credit for his acting skills, but when called upon do something other than just shoot people and look mean, Eastwood can deliver the goods. The Outlaw Josey Wales is one of only three films in which he cries onscreen, and in the opening scenes of the film he actually convinces as a meek farmer unable to stop his family`s murder. Whilst, throughout the film, he projects an image of violence and hatred, we see this image punctured as he continually comes into contact with other, weaker outcasts from society whom he is compelled to help. A story about redemption, not revenge, the film finally acknowledges that Josey Wales' true nature, of a family man, provider, and protector, still exists inside the feared outlaw he has become, and when he finally confronts the man who killed his wife and child, he is willing to forgive, and only kills him because the man in question is unable to comprehend this forgiveness. Ending on an upbeat note of new life, The Outlaw Josey Wales is Eastwood's most positive and emotionally complex work.

I will keep this review short and speak about the Blu Ray.

This WB US disc is region free so will play in any country.

I had this on dvd and this blu ray was a huge improvement with vibrant colours and sharper pq.

Special features includes are commentary by Richard Schickel, New featurette Clint Eastwood's west
Plus 2 vintage featurettes- Hell has no fury - The making of the Outlaw Josey Wales and Eastwood in action,Plus a theatrical trailer.

The digibook is great and sound quality is greatly improved over the dvd.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Having never been a fan of the genre there are few westerns within my movie collection, however THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES is certainly a valued edition. I made the decision to buy the US region free blu-ray based on the reviews of other Amazon customers and have to add that I'm glad I did. The upgrade to hi-def is outstanding for a movie made in 1976. With crystal clear picture quality and 5.1 surround the movie has never looked and sounded better. Having been severely disappointed with the poor quality of some other blu-ray titles recently, (Glory & Quadrophenia), Josey Wales has restored my faith in the blu-ray format and is undoubtedly a showcase disc.

The movie itself needs no review as it's easily one of the best westerns ever produced. THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES captures the bleak desolation and reality of a country torn apart in the aftermath of the American civil war and focuses on the harshness of the west rather than the kind of sunset silhouette cinematography usually seen within the genre. Alongside Kevin Costner's DANCES WITH WOLVES (Director's Cut), Billy Bob Thornton's ALL THE PRETTY HORSES, and Ang Lee's RIDE WITH THE DEVIL, Josey Wales is an achievement in film making that can bring in audiences to the western genre that otherwise wouldn't be interested.

If you're contemplating making this purchase make sure you opt for the region free blu-ray and buy with the confidence of knowing that if you liked the film before, once you've experienced the superior quality of this editions tranfer, you'll love it even more......... I reckon so!

Can't express how much I loved this film. Great story from the start. Non stop pacey action with a great gun battle at the end. Eastwood knows how to make great westerns and this one is up there with the best.
Just brilliant!
