Unforgiven Review


Extraordinary
"I do not like assassins -- or men of low character." Gene Hackman and Clint Eastwood face off in one of the best westerns ever made -- make that the best western ever made -- produced some 50 years after the prime of the western era. Eastwood plays a reluctant assassin trying to raise money to save his small farm, kids, and sick pigs, while Hackman's much-abused sheriff aims to stop the killing.

Richard Harris's English Bob is an unforgettable pansy of a villain, and the widescreen cinematography is lush during the day, ominous during the invariably rainy nights.

Tail Lights Fade Review


Weak
Well, it turns out it's a mad, mad, mad, mad Canada in this Cannonball Run/Smokey and the Bandit clone for the late 1990s. This time out, four twentysomethings are heading across the Great White North in order to clear out a barn full of pot before the cops find it, not to mention other nefarious types, backstabbing, and doublecrossing.
