Critic Reviews of "Pale Rider"Chicago ReaderMay 27, 2011
Though the metaphysical overtones of the screenplay are sometimes awkwardly handled and Eastwood's direction of actors (other than himself) is occasionally uncertain, this was one of the better American films of 1985.TIME MagazineOctober 26, 2008
Pale Rider does nothing to disprove the wisdom that this genre is best left to the revival houses. A double feature of Shane and Eastwood's High Plains Drifter will do just fine, thanks.VarietyOctober 26, 2008
It's all been seen before, but Eastwood serves it up with authority, fine craftsmanship and a frequent sense of fun.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
It's good to be back in the saddle again.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
[Eastwood] understands so well how he works on the screen that the movie has a resonance that probably was not even there in the screenplay.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
I'm just now beginning to realize that, though Mr. Eastwood may have been improving over the years, it's also taken all these years for most of us to recognize his very consistent grace and wit as a filmmaker.TV GuideOctober 26, 2008
It had been so long since a quality western had hit America's screens that it appears as if Eastwood purposely set out to remind audiences of all the elements that make the genre work.Groucho ReviewsSeptember 12, 2008
His saddle bag is a mixed one, though Pale Rider still has the touch of quality associated with latter-day Eastwood. [Blu-ray]Movie MetropolisSeptember 01, 2008
...who else would you want coming to your rescue than the Preacher Man With No Name?Combustible CelluloidMay 16, 2008
It's a lightweight, easygoing affair, reminiscent of some of Hawks' or Ford's lesser Westerns.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 20, 2007
Eastwood's mythic Western divided film critics: Some were baffled by the audacity of his playing a religious figure, while others claimed he was just embodying the mysterious knight-stranger, a common character in classic Westerns.Juicy CerebellumJuly 14, 2005
Not Clint's best western, but entertaining enough.
