The screenplay is another one of those violence revues, with carnage production numbers slotted every so often.

A soggy attempt at a post-Civil War western epic.

It's true enough that The Outlaw Josey Wales makes no attempt to hide its true nature, but that isn't to say it doesn't reward a closer look.

Eastwood is such a taciturn and action-oriented performer that it's easy to overlook the fact that he directs many of his movies -- and many of the best, most intelligent ones.

Arguably Eastwood's best film, as both an actor and director.

Eastwood is just one of several interesting and three-dimensional characters in a story that is as much about the shape of the country at the close of the Civil War as it is an action Western.

[Eastwood] gets to the heart of the matter briskly, orchestrates his confrontations intelligently and gets off without lingering unduly over the resultant ugliness.

Though the story is pat...there's pleasure to be had in the memorable one-liners, the irreverent humor...and the Western action against the backdrop of frontier scenery. [Blu-ray]
