Product Description


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 summarized 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 brutalized 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 colorful role for Richard Harris, it's arguably Eastwood's crowning directorial achievement. The digital video disc offers standard and widescreen formats and a remastered soundtrack. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastwood's Dark Masterpiece May 29 2003
For many years now, my favorite Clint Eastwood western was "The Outlaw Josey Wales". But, in 1992, that changed. That was the year "Unforgiven' was released, and there will have to be something pretty significant to dislodge this film's achievement from my mind--though TOJW remains a close second. What makes this film so great are the star/director, supporting cast, cinematography, and story are so well matched as to create a film for the ages.
The story is one that works on many levels. It begins with one insecure cowboy and a prostitute of Big Whiskey, Wyoming that cascades into an unforgivable act of violence. One that'll beget more when all is done. The local sheriff, "Little Bill" Daggett (Gene Hackman in top award form), has a less-than adequate consequence for the cowboys involved--especially for her fellow prostitutes led by Strawberry Alice (Frances Fisher). Thus, this group of women will look outside of the law (since it's done nothing for them and their mutilated cohort) in search for "justice."
And so, a word-of-mouth bounty of $1000 is placed on the trails and in the ears of any 'randy' passersby. This promise of a bounty (through a young relative of an old sidekick) will eventually find William Munny (Eastwood), a poor, widowed Kansas pig farmer trying to make ends meet for his two young children. The "Schofield Kid" (Jaime Woolvett) has heard, in passed down tales, that Munny was one of the most cold-blooded bounty hunters there ever was. A "... known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition" that he surmises would be an asset to have for the quest ahead.

5.0 out of 5 stars excelent film building on Eastwood's westerns Oct. 31 2012
Here we have the final western by clint..and comparisons are made to john wayne. Although this is not fair to Wayne, since much of his work, was not under his control, I dont think he had a company and largely through agents or whatever forces, choose this or that? Clint has complete control and has choosen the avenues of myth to write stories, Orson welles hitchcock two reelers and the two dons(to whom the film is dedicated)...are influences for his view of life. Probably there are influences we dont know..the commentator mentions where he was raised..or whatever? Here we have the start a man in mourning, his wife is deceased and we learn of her through his memories, a very modern technique, through his eyes and the commentator of the film sees a 'comic-religosio-' or something like that in that way he relates to wife and kids..and than we have a hitchcockian interlude about some prostitutes..who play a role like the witches in macbeth...eyes and various organs. Eyes the heart of the soul in the ancient world...dismemberment..and all the actions in the film the sufferings of the innocent, much like a christ like image in the NT is seen through their eyes, all kinds of moral insights. The scourging..whatever they appear and it bears on their emotions..on innocent people...Eastwood than has a fever..and sees snakes..demons..has a purgatorial time experience feels cleansed and clear..those who dismember must die..a constant theme in his movies..although wife,friends,family...he needs to do a story only the perpetrators are killed, and that forms the basis of the story..

What can I say....I just love Clint's movies......he is so good at both acting and writing as well as directing. Morgan Freeman was good too, but the best acting of all was from Gene Hackman.....what a part he played.
I rec'd the DVD in excellent condition and in the time allotted.

5.0 out of 5 stars one you should have March 11 2010
western movie in its finest form.Forget that sci-fi junk and watch this movie being acted out,Gene hackman,Clint and Morgan pull this story off,in pure western setting..Many of us had days that seem slow and the next day we can hardley hang on to....this is real adventure as how it happens and this movie follow these people s lives in a very entertaining way..If you dont like western movies,DO NOT get this one,go spend your money on something that reflects your life like,a cupcake or a stick of celery. Very good movie to own...

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastwood's's gritty opus of the old west Aug. 18 2007
By falcon
at the time i watched this movie,i hadn't been very interested in
Western movies.but because this one was directed by Clint Eastwood and
had a star studded cast,i decided to give it a try.boy,i'm glad i did.i
really enjoyed the movie.Eastwood also stars in the movie,along with
Morgan freeman,Gene Hackman,Richard Harris and Saul Rubinek,to name
just a few.each of these A one actors are at the top of their game
here.Eastwood crafts a gritty,dark version of the old west during a
harsh and unforgiving time.the movie is brutally violent and
unflinching in its portrayal of the time.some may find it
depressing,and it does have that air to it,but i wasn't bothered by
that aspect of it.i got caught up in the story and action.i also liked
the dialogue.i thought it was well written.this movie definitely has
epic written all over it.this movie was responsible for my becoming
interested in the Western genre.no small feat,believe me."Unforgiven"
is a 5/5.
