This is the 4th anniversary edition of high plains drifter and what a great film this is starring Clint Eastwood as a stranger sho enters town where it is being ruled by outlaws in the old West. So clint takes it on himself to protect the folk of this town. First thing he does is help himself to what he wants like a woman shave booze he then paints the town sign to welcome to hell in red and black and the rest is history like any clint Eastwood film he is the unnamed hero who shoots straight and has no quarm at killing anybody and then riding of into the sunset if you like these sort of films then this is highly recommended.

This is screen legend 'Clint Eastwood's' second movie as a director.
in this he plays his familiar role as the gunman with no name riding
into town to raise 'HELL !'
after a long ride he arrives in 'LAGO' all he appears to want is a
quiet drink, a shave and a bath, however three gun-toting locals have
no intention of allowing the stranger to do so.
the problem is soon resolved.
the town has another issue looming, they need to hire a gun to protect
them against three gunmen they'd had put away who are now being released
from prison, the sheriff isn't up to the job, there's only one candidate,
the stranger, who unbeknown to the town folk has his own agenda.
are they are willing to agree to all his demands ?
The man with no-name demands that they prepare to welcome the gunmen and
tells them what they need to do.
but...when it comes too, have they the courage to do so ?
though not his best western it is typical in as much as he plays the
part of the stranger with a swift draw.
some gritty action sequences....a must for 'Clint Eastwood' fans.
Pleased to say that unlike many of the 'Blu-ray' transfers of his films
the picture quality is superior to many of his recent Blu-ray' releases
I've purchased.

Clint Eastwood's avenging angel rides into a town wracked with guilt over the brutal murder of the town's sheriff at the hands of 3 killers. The killers are on their way back to the town so they need someone to protect them. This is possibly my favourite western of all time. Saddle up, you'll be glad you did.

Superb film. One of my fave Clint spaghetti westerns, the man with no name but with a touch of the supernatural! Classic!

I have always had a weak spot for westerns and love the westerns of Clint Eastwood and as such this has always been a favourite of mine, the sub text of the supernatural setting (is he the ghost of the slain marshal or his brother) would be worked into his later work (Pale Rider)to better effect.
I am watching this while typing and I can honestly say I am very very impressed, you can see this has been remastered and not just upscaled ala Two Mules or Joe Kidd (both of which are a vast improvement over their DVD counterparts) the picture is as sharp as you would expect, the colour vibrant, the scenes set at night stand out and are pin sharp (a problem with DVDs and some Blu Rays) the sound has been remastered into 5.1, which does sound clearer than before but doesn't make any real use of the back speakers so do not buy this expecting your cinema surround system to get a work out as it will not.
what you are buying this for is the vastly improved picture quality and this delivers on all counts.
For a product being labelled as a 40th anniversary edition you will be a little disappointed with the extras, or rather the lack there off. This edition has a solitary trailer. I would like more Clint Eastwood movies to come with some outstanding extras or even a retrospective documentary or two but to be honest they have always been a little lacking in that department but as I want my movies on the best ever format with the best possible picture and sound I am more than happy with this release. I am not going to review this movie what is the point High Plains Drifter has been out there for 40 years so you would have seen it in one format or the other.
The only real question being is this worth getting again and I have to give a resounding yes put your hand in your pocket replace your old DVD or VHS you will not be disappointed, enjoy I am.
