A former assassin William T Munny Clint Eastwood leads a peaceful and quiet life together with his children on the farm One day his quiescence is disturbed by a young travelling gunman Schofield Kid Jaimz Woolvett He tries to talk Will into being his partner for shooting two men and collecting a thousand dollars bounty Munny does not accept the proposal at first but the money tempts him He sets out after Kid some time later and allies with the former partner of his Ned Logan Morgan Freeman The movie is a satire typical anti-western about a reformed gunman who comes out of retirement for one last job Odd as it may seem the viewer sympathizes immediately with the character played by Eastwood regardless of his criminal past His is an old-timer who can neither shoot nor mount his horse properly anymore One could say that his character in a way resembles that of Chaplin however not by means of grace but rather by the very tragic nature He lives in a world where there is obviously a lot of violence He is a typical looser He rears his two kids alone and chases pigs in the backyard whereas others live their lives to the full Yet he takes up this quest a pursuit after money that he hopes to collect It is probably rendered by the fact that he is not prosperous on his farm His wife passed on a couple of years before and left him with the offspring Righteous and just man as he is he wants to secure his children with better future If it were not for them he would not take the job What is more the two men he is to kill surely deserved their death so in a way these killings are for a good cause Bearing in mind all the western movies and its heroes always young and handsome one cannot help the feeling
