Yurusarezaru mono (Unforgiven) Reviews

The Playlist

Taken in its own context, it's a solid, if unremarkable samurai picture. But if you're even vaguely familiar with the Eastwood original, it's so familiar that it's hard to see the point.

It's a curiosity, perhaps, but it's nicely made, beautifully acted and well worth seeking out.

Little White Lies

This "eastern" remake of Clint Eastwood's seminal '90s western boasts a similar sense of rough-shod lyricism.

This remake of Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning epic may lack the austere, classical weight of the original, but it makes up for it in visual splendour. Unexpectedly brilliant.

There's no shortage of bloodshed, but rare is the film that uses bullets and flashing blades to provoke sadness rather than excitement.

Lee has made a film so good that it almost equals its namesake, that sour, magnificent western which won the Best Picture and Best Director Oscars in 1993.

Mike McCahill

It's an enduring yarn, well told: a rare remake that functions independently, even as it reminds you - vividly, in places - of the original's elegiac pleasures.

Jason Gorber

Let's be explicit here - much, if not all of the pleasure of this version of Unforgiven is tied directly to the previous film. As a standalone project, it's highly interesting, but it's also hardly definitive.

Even at his most dogged and dutiful, Korean director Lee Sang-il crafts a retelling that never dips below a certain baseline of handsome competence, making a great case for the Hokkaido landscapes as a rugged frame for the action.

This is London

Clint Eastwood's 1992 western is adored by just about every critic in the world. Except me. Weirdly, I found Sang-il Lee's reverent remake gripping.

Geoffrey Macnab

The film is remarkably faithful to Eastwood's version. It carries on a long tradition of exchange between Westerns and Japanese samurai films that stretches back to Kurosawa and Sergio Leone.

Lee's version offers enough grand spectacle and historical intrigue to carve its own space in the international multiplexes.

The samurai/Western osmosis is given a terrific new surge by this beautiful-looking, smartly modified translation of the Eastwood classic.
