Bill Munny, a retired, once ruthless killer-turned-hog farmer, is flat broke. A widower with two young children to tend to, he feels he has no choice but to accept one last bounty hunter mission to find and kill two young gunslingers who brutalized and cut up the face of a local prostitute. Bill teams up with his old partner Ned and the cocky greenhorn, The Schofield Kid. The three men soon find out this bounty has many more obstacles to overcome besides just finding and killing the gunslingers. Little Bill is the town sheriff of Old Whiskey who keeps a tight hold on what goes on in his town and outlaws all firearms within the city limits. He has little respect for assassins and hired guns, and enforces his law with the most brutal of measures.

It’s more than a story about cowboys taking on a murder for hire. It’s about seeking justice for a woman who was abused. I liked that the movie took a sober look at murder; the main characters didn’t glorify it or take it lightly. I don’t really understand what the point was in having a black actor portray a cowboy though. I’m pretty sure that there were no black cowboys in real life. And back during the time that this movie takes place, the whites would’ve been bringing attention to his race in a negative way. Instead, no one says a thing about it. They treat him like he’s a white guy. It’s unrealistic.

I'm sure everyone in Big Whiskey voted for Trump; a town where bad mouth-in the President can get the sh*t kicked out-of-ya.

Need a movie make you feel fuzzy and comfortable to be great? All of the characters herein are complicated; none are wholly good or evil. Punishment follows a vicious crime by the simplest logic. Big Whiskey’s natural setting is a looker. This film is not for some people the way I can’t stand Disney, I guess.

Not sure where the awards came from. Basically everything about the film is average. The new True Grit is a much better Western, if that's what you need. Hostiles with Bale is also a very good serious, emotionally and cognitively meaningful film. The only remarkable part of this movie was Hackman's performance.

I honestly did not think I would watch this until the end. I hated the way the women were treated, although that was probably true to life at the time, leaving two young children alone on a pig farm is unbelievable, there was so much violence. But I wanted to find out what all the fuss was about with this movie. Oscar winner for best picture and Oscar winner for best actor. There were some very good cinema shots but often I would find a scene somewhat off-kilter. Just so unbelievable as to be laughable. Oh well, to each their own. Love it or not, whatever!

I am sorely disappointed. One of Eastwood's worst.

This is one of my all time favorite movies, honestly whenever I find it on TV I watch it. Eastwood helps us remember what a great actor Gene Hackman is with this movie. You also realize why Morgan Freeman became one of his "go to" actors. Simply a great film.

Arguably the best Clint Eastwood movie ever made.

"She was a comely young woman and not without prospects. Therefore it was heartbreaking to her mother that she would enter into marriage with William Munny, a known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition. When she died, it was not at his hands as her mother might have suspected, but of smallpox. That was 1878."
