[Spoiler] [/ spoiler]: I rarely comment on the film giving spolier, but the final scene can actually be quite jarring climate of the film, perhaps Willian (Clint) have to have died, but kill the unnamed man is like killing Superman, Rocky or Batman. The character is an icon, almost a superhero, kill him, it would be like to kill Clint himself, so the director (Clint Eastwood himself) opts for a redemption, not a death.
[Spoiler] [/ spoiler] Another point to be discussed is a movie western to where no one pulls the gun and kills 20 people with the eye closed, but a killer who can not kill another killer who never killed and has problems vision and one that has visions of death and can barely get on the horse, and Sheriff claims to love the law and hate killers, beating people who believes to be criminal, are real cowboys, humans, this point of unforgivable is incredible.
[Spoiler] [/ spoiler] And the personal drama of the character played by Clint Eastwood is a counterpoint to his character's past, who killed, robbed, only saw the money, he tries to redeem the past and almost 30 years later, the man nameless goodbye.
Not only is it beautifully shot and masterfully acted, it explores the questions:
Can a person will-away their wicked nature?
How does a person bring good to the world for being what they cannot help but be?
Is there justice or redemption in BEING unjust TO the unjust? Is there justice at all in a Godless world?
If you can't appreciate this film, consider yourself Un
Morgan Freeman, and all of the women in the film, Frances Fisher, Anna
Thompson, and Tara and the others were great. Clint does much more talking in this film, and has some great quotes:"It s a terrible thing killing a man, you take away all he's got and all he's ever going to have...we all have in comin, Kid...any man don' wanna get killed better clear on out the back...all I can tell you is who's going to be last."
However it felt slow paced and that's what made it boring half of the time. When the movie wasn't boring it was probably depressing.
