What to Know

Critics Consensus

As both director and star, Clint Eastwood strips away decades of Hollywood varnish applied to the Wild West, and emerges with a series of harshly eloquent statements about the nature of violence.

Kevin Maher Times (UK) A better modern western has yet to be made. Rated: 5/5 Jul 12, 2024 Full Review Jay Scott Globe and Mail It is arguably his [Eastwood] finest achievement, it is certainly his apex as an actor. Dec 7, 2022 Full Review Christopher Frayling Sight & Sound [Eastwood's] best Western -- the most distinguised film he has appeared in and directed -- since The Outlaw Josey Wales. Feb 6, 2020 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand ... it finally made official what critics and fans had slowly come to realize over the last decade: Clint Eastwood—legendary as both the iconic western drifter with no name and Dirty Harry—was one of America’s best directors. Nov 18, 2023 Full Review Mark Johnson Awards Daily David Webb Peoples’ screenplay skillfully balances the seasoned perspective on the ramifications of violence with the compelling journey of a young gunslinger determined to make a name for himself. Jun 14, 2023 Full Review James Wegg JWR "They had it coming." Rated: 4/5 May 8, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

larry Very well made movie. Had the feeling of being in the film the entire time. Engaging story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/17/21 Full Review Ervin Greatest western movie ever Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/13/21 Full Review Jeff K I've watched this movie about 50 times and could probably watch it 50 more times. It could be a study on redemption but I don't think it is. How can a man especially good at killing be redeemed by falling back into his old ways? Maybe it has to do with who he's killing? Or maybe this is more of a story about bitter revenge. Or how reality can never live up to the legends of the wild West. Or you could just sit back and enjoy the mayhem. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/30/24 Full Review Joseph C the greatest western ever made Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/27/24 Full Review Akash A Avid movie buff, coincidentally time and time again disliking well rated movies and liking mediocrely rated movies. This one I felt didn't have so much meat to the story. A small cast & lesser character development. A slow story, with a few unfinished / rushed branches. I just didn't draw much from it, though the occasional landscape shots were really beautiful. Watched it after having seen Django Unchained and really enjoying the Wild West environment. Underwhelmed. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/23/24 Full Review chris h You could argue this movie deserves a perfect score.Great cast,great story,great visuals.On point editing.Possibly the best Western ever,up there with the good,the bad,and the ugly.
