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!

"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.

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.

This Special Edition 2 disc set of the Western classic Unforgiven needs to be part of any serious film collection out there. Not only did it earn Best Picture and Best Director Oscars of 1992, but it is now seen as the pinnacle of Clint Eastwood's glittering career. Co-starring the likes of Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman and Richard Harris, it is easy to realise why Unforgiven is now regarded as 'a masterpiece'. Please read this review and own a genuinely brilliant piece of cinema on a great DVD package.
Clint stars as William Munny, a pig farmer with a vicious reputation for his doings in the past. When a young pretender by the name of The Schoffield Kid arrives at Munny's farm and offers him to collect the bounty for 'some no good cowboys' who cut up a young woman, Will is forced to go on the saddle for one last time. His old partner Ned (a terrific Morgan Freeman) also rides along, in search of some well needed cash.
The men however are oblivious to the fact the town of Big Whiskey is marshalled by vicious sheriff Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman), a man who wants to see his town free of assassins and fire arms. Even from an early stage, you know Unforgiven is heading for an almighty duel between the two lead characters, Munny and Little Bill. This comes to one of the best clixmaxes I have ever seen, which haunts the audience. This is as gritty and as realistic a western film you are ever likely to come across.
The extras are spread out on Disc two, which includes some nice short documentaries about the making of Unforgiven. There is a considerable amount of time spent focusing on Clint Eastwood's career, which I feel is perhaps not significantly important, but does give the viewer some good information about his past.
