High Plains Drifter
- Clint Eastwood
First time to see this movie. Clint is once again playing a character who is never named. He basically strolls into town for a drink & a shave but the local hired thugs take to picking on him. Its ends badly for them.
The local mining company had hired them as muscle against a trio of murderous thieves that they managed to turn over to the law. They are getting out of jail in a week and now the town needs a champion. They hire Clint's character.
I was taken to not liking this particular nameless character of Clints. He didn't fit the scondrel with a heart that some of his other characters had. For starters he rapes a woman, which, despite she seemed to want something from him still doesn't make it right. That aside this character just wasn't as much fun as his others imo.
