One of the most boring and predictable Clint Eastwood westerns. It's ok if you're desperate for an Eastwood western, but once you have seen it, it's not really worth watching again. The acting is pretty poor and the dialogue is too hokie. Of course this is just my opinion, and if you don't believe me go watch it for yourself!

The Reviews for Pale Rider (1985) 1080p
Too simple, and boring.Reviewed bythetagravyVote: 4/10
Not only was I disappointed in Pale Rider, but I was angry with it. To put it as directly as I can, this story is a rip-off of the 1953 emotionally-unparalleled western 'Shane' with Alan Ladd.
The plot is identical; only instead of cattle farming it is gold mining. Instead of the menacing gunfighter Wilson, we get a less menacing, crooked lawman who is no good without his deputies. Instead of cute little Joey, there is a dumb adolescent girl who just wants to have sex, and then there is the lead role of the Preacher.
Clint Eastwood seems a little unsure of how to approach this character. He is not sure whether to make him a tough brutal gunfighter, or an emotionally warm human being. as a result, he is not much of either.
I will say this, the first half hour of Pale Rider is sufficiently strong and engaging, enough so that you don't even notice the Shane connection. It is only when the conflict starts to emerge that things get worse and worse until the ending. Whereas Shane ended in a heart-wrenching, tear jerking way, Pale Rider ends in a bore.
This is Clint Eastwood's weakest western, and it is not one I recommend.
Mr. Eastwood, it seems, can do no wrong. He, for some unknown reason, has Audiences, and most Critics, in the Palm. Enter this Rip-Off, overrated and completely Styleless Movie. There is virtually nothing here that is not a tireless retread. From the Story to the Violence, everything is flat.
A manipulative Movie is an understatement. This is a Self-Absorbed Vanity Piece. Here we have our "Hero" casting spells over Women and Young Girls wearing the Collar. Steering Men with but a word, Everyone is awestruck at this Mystical Figure of a nameless Man.
The Director/Star shows us not one but two shots of a Dying Cow complete with blood oozing from the mouth. Not the only Animal who suffers, he shows us the Family Dog shot down, complete with burial, prayer, and youthful innocence wondering why.
The final shootout is about as lackluster and boring as possible only eclipsed by the more boring multiple shots of dynamite throwing and explosions. This "Auteur" also seems to have a fetish for gunshots to the forehead, again, multiple times. It is amazing, not only do we have bad scenes and expository shots, the Director is so clueless, and full of Himself, that he shows them all many times. This is just BAD Movie Making.
