The Outlaw Josey Wales Reviews

August 8, 2011
Wales also possesses a touching emotional vulnerability that marks another significant step away from Eastwood's often-overcriticized "macho" image.
July 6, 2010
The screenplay is another one of those violence revues, with carnage production numbers slotted every so often.
October 26, 2008
[Eastwood] gets to the heart of the matter briskly, orchestrates his confrontations intelligently and gets off without lingering unduly over the resultant ugliness.
January 26, 2006
Demonstrated Eastwood's ability to recreate his first starring role, as the mythic Man with No Name of the Italian Westerns, and to subtly undercut it through comedy and mockery.
October 23, 2004
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.

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