Movies for this feel?

>The Sword of Doom (Okamoto)
If you mean the 2014 movie, not what I am looking for.
That movie doesn't go as hard to the territory of hatred, evil and irredeemable protag as Sword of Doom and Unforgiven. It's really hard to make excuses for Munny and Tsukue in their respective movies.
Pale Rider, High Plains Drifter and Unforgiven are basically a thematic trilogy. Pale Rider's title says it all.
Hitokiri (Tenchu) and Goyokin
Thanks for the jap recommendations, but how close to are they say, Tsukue's character in Sword of Doom? You could not make an excuse for that person in that movie, he was just flatout irredeemable, seething anger and evil without no coming back from it.
Heh, that's actually good question. I'm sure he has answered that in some interview, gotta look for one.
Maybe he wanted to give his final judgement on Hollywood-Westerns that which romanticize the outlaws so very much?
He manages to nail the scowl too, and the way he just carries himself in the movie all work together bringing together Munny as a character, evil, irredeemable.
There's not so many of these movies, people might label them edgy, juvenile, dark, but I like them. There's just something interesting in seeing what makes some monster of a human being tick, like Munny or Tsukue. I like when they don't get any weakly written redemption arc either.
>He was still loyal to his dead wife.
Didn't he change his shit for her? Couldn't the change back to a murderer be, betrayal?
It's been while since I saw it.
>Men who killed his only friend.
eh, just more misery spread.
anton isn't exactly protag though, dude's just like terminator, does it really count?
>Didn't he change his shit for her? Couldn't the change back to a murderer be, betrayal?
We was doing it to feed their kids because the life she turned him to was failing. Plus he didn't sleep with the whore when she offered his a freebie out of respect to his dead wife. William Munny was a piece of shit, but neither were the bad guys completely evil pieces of shit, which makes it such a good movie.
Plenty of people needed to feed their kids back in those times but didn't turn into murderers, much less those that will come back for people's families and kill 'em too like Munny promised (and I believe that he would, shoot the women and children like he did in his youth according to the movie).
He wanted to kill some rapist and by the end of the movie he threatens to kill innocent families.
>much less those that will come back for people's families and kill 'em too like Munny promised
Eh, that can be seen as purely theater on his part to keep someone from taking a shot at him and if you watch him step out into the rain you can kinda see that he is afraid he will be shot down anyway.
