From Amazon.co.uk

Winner of four Academy Awards, including best picture, director, supporting actor and best editing, Clint Eastwood's 1992 masterpiece stands as one of the greatest and most thematically compelling Westerns ever made. "The movie summarised everything I feel about the Western," said Eastwood at the time of the film's release. "The moral is the concern with gunplay." To illustrate that theme, Eastwood stars as a retired, once-ruthless killer-turned-gentle-widower and hog farmer. He accepts one last bounty-hunter mission--to find the men who brutalised a prostitute--to help support his two motherless children. Joined by his former partner (Morgan Freeman) and a cocky greenhorn (Jaimz Woolvett), he takes on a corrupt sheriff (Oscar winner Gene Hackman) in a showdown that makes the viewer feel the full impact of violence and its corruption of the soul. Dedicated to Eastwood's mentors Sergio Leone and Don Siegel and featuring a colourful role for Richard Harris, Unforgiven is arguably Eastwood's crowning directorial achievement. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars A profound, thought-provoking and epic film 25 Feb 2008
By William Cohen VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This film tells a story in a rather indirect way. From the prologue, which tells us about a comely and virtuous woman who marries a violent and angry man, we don't quite know where we are.

Then we see a gruesome attack of a prostitute and some rather unexpected summary justice from Little Bill (Gene Hackman). From this point onwards, the story, and the characters, tilt one way and the other. You like Little Bill, but he takes things too far. You like the Eastwood character, but you can't entirely forgive him, and you can see him sliding downwards.

The action has lingered with me for several days. What does this film have to say about hellraisers? What am I to make of the amazing denouement? Is there any justice in the ending?

Looking back there are scenes that you remember, like the mythical gunslinger missing a simple target over and over again, or Little Bill and his hopeless roof-building. The details ornament the story in delightful ways.

It's an absorbing film which confronts you with much complexity. Should law enforcers make examples of people? Do light punishments cause greater troubles? How do mythologies influence our actions? This is a very special film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgivable to not own this movie! 28 Jan 2005
By Manco
Format:DVD
Clint Eastwood dedicated his Western masterpiece Unforgiven "...to Sergio and Don." (Sergio Leone and Don Siegel) This was an entirely fitting tribute to the two directors who probably had the greatest impact on Eastwood's career. Leone, of course, cast Eastwood as The Man With No Name in the Dollars trilogy, whereas Siegel directed Eastwood in his other iconic role of Dirty Harry.
When watching Unforgiven it is clear that Eastwood learnt valuable lessons from both of these great directors: Leone's rugged, unromantic view of the West and Siegel's flare for staging action. However, Clint Eastwood is a director with talent all of his own and in Unforgiven we are given a special treat.
This 10th anniversary edition does full justice to the film Eastwood wanted us to see, most notably in its 2.35:1 widescreen presentation. The extra features are also useful and interesting additions serving as more than just padding.
Unforgiven is a Western and as such a genre piece. However, more than that it is a powerful story, a cautionary tale, and above all intelligent and emotionally gripping. It would be unforgivable of you not to embrace it!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE intelligent western 9 Feb 2003
Format:DVD
.
This 2 disc special edition of the academy award winning film directed by Clint Eastwood is exactly what 'movie fans' have been waiting for. Its been impossible to hear anything about the man so comfortable in front of and behind the camera on any of his DVD releases until now, and although there's no 'director comentary' from the man himself theres plenty to rectify that omision.

The DVD itself is still lacking slightly in quality. The sound suffers from the rise and fall syndrome often experienced with old VCR's and although its not severe enough to detract from the film its the kind of detail you'd think they'd sort out for a 2 disc special edition. The film commentary is by Richard Schickel (authorised biographer and friend of Clint Eastwood) and is a very good one with plenty of anecdotes and insights to the creation of this film and the director himself. The second disc is the motherload. A new documentary on the making of the film, the original documentary, a 'featurette' on Eastwood himself and the 'Eastwood on Eastwood' 1997 documentary on the directors career narrated by John Cusack all go to making this THE Eastwood DVD to have. As a bonus Eastwoods one and only role in an episode of the TV series Maverick is included on this formidable extras DVD. It was soon after this that he was seen regularly in the Rawhide TV series.

The story itself is not greatly original- how many films have revolved around the 'one last job' from the retired gangster/ hitman/ ex special forces operative etc., only to have it all go wrong in the execution of the plan. Eastwood himself has taken this role a couple of times (Firefox, Josey Wales) and it is a staple plot drive from hollywood.

With Eastwood in the directors chair, this basic story becomes much, much more.

"Unforgiven" is much more than a breathtaking Western, it's an amazing film altogether. With elements of drama and film noir, this is a picture that shows us that there are some demons you can never put to rest, no matter how hard you try.
Clint Eastwood stars as William Munny, a once notorious and violent killer and thief. If Munny didn't like you, chances were that you wouldn't live long enough for him to tell you so. However, that was in the old days. Now, he's just a quiet and tired farmer who is a devoted father still in mourning of his dead wife. He's been straight for years and is trying to put all of his demons to rest, but you still get the feeling that no matter how hard he tries, he will always be haunted. An opportunity comes to him in the name of 'The Schofield Kid.' He gives him a chance to be his partner and have him help on a bounty. Knowing that the money could help his family out, Munny finally decides to take the Kid up on the offer. He also brings with him Ned Logan; an old friend and partner. Little Bill Daggett is the Sheriff in town, and the thing he hates most are assassins. He will do anything in his power to take care of them and make sure they do not succeed on their killing. The last remaining part of the film stands out the most and is so well executed that it catches you off guard.
This really is a great film and it surprised me like I would've never expected. I don't like Westerns all that much, but this isn't your typical Western. That is probably why I enjoyed it so much. There is so much story and character development. You really are able to sympathize with Munny, despite his dark and violent past.
