The review of this Movie prepared by a Level 1 Blue Jay scholar

Retired killer Bill Munny gave up a life of thievery and murder for his wife. Now widowed and struggling to support his children, he decides to take one last job when he hears of a $500 bounty offered by the women of a brothel for the capture of a man who savagely beat one of their own. Munny (Eastwood) takes his old partner Ned Logan (Freeman) and the "Schofield Kid" who told him about the job (Jaime Woolvett). His principal opposition is the sheriff of the town, Little Bill Daggett (Hackman), who is a lawless, sadistic thug. From this foul and violent setting, Munny salvages a scrap of honor and decency for his rotten soul.
