Eastwood and Morgan Freeman play retired outlaws who pick up their guns one last time to collect a bounty. Richard Harris is an ill-fated killer-for-hire. And Hackman is a lawman of sly charm...and chilling brutality

Good old shoot 'em up cowboy film
- Unforgiven review by JD

Clint plays a complex character (for a cowboy film that is). He had been a serial killer in his youth to put Shipman in the shade. His wife however had changed his personality into a humble and reclusive farmer. For the good of his children however he goes back to his old ways to get some money.
Not an endearing person you might think, but of course Clint is not only the goodie but imparts a strong visual odour of heroism. Richard Harris plays the English loser whose legend is discredited and who is kicked into the dirt by the sheriff (an American type-cast in my opinion).
Nevertheless I definitely walked away at the end of the film a foot taller. It is not clever but it feels good.
