The Outlaw Josey Wales


After the murder of his family, Missouri farmer Josey Wales (Clint Eastwood) joins a Confederate militia; when the Civil War ends, he refuses to surrenderā€¦ A Western that became a hit with audiences and critics. Itā€™s largely the kind of revenge story weā€™ve seen many times before, with Josey chased by both Union troops and bounty hunters. Heā€™s also traveling together with an odd group of people, including a new woman in his life. A simple story, with some warmth but also bloodletting, since Josey knows how to handle a gun. A good-looking but long movie; Eastwood is the right man for the lead.
