Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Clint Eastwood followed up his Oscar-winning, critically acclaimed Unforgiven, the Western to end all Westerns, with another impressive, but grossly underappreciated work, A Perfect World. The film is portentously set in Texas in 1963, and it offers a compelling examination of the nature of American violence. Some Eastwood fans were probably put off by the fact that it's Kevin Costner who plays the traditional Eastwood part, the outlaw with a code of honor, while the man himself is relegated to playing, very effectively, the inept authority figure. In fact, by directing White Hunter, Black Heart, Unforgiven, and this film in succession, Eastwood demonstrated his willingness to critique his own status as an American icon, to an extent that few actors in such a position ever had. These films feature some of his best work as an actor, and there's not an unconditionally heroic figure in any of them. A Perfect World is probably the most moving of the three films, with the wonderful complexity of Kevin Costner's performance as the well-meaning but emotionally combustible Butch Haynes, playing off a touchingly naturalistic performance by child-actor T.J. Lowther as his entranced hostage, Phillip Perry. The film compellingly contrasts the uncontrollable violence of Haynes -- which arises from his own history of abuse and from his passionate beliefs -- with the calculated, state-sanctioned violence of the FBI sharpshooter, Bobby Lee (Bradley Whitford), whose cold competence in the name of ideology tellingly alludes to the contemporaneous assassination of President John F. Kennedy. With its well-drawn characters, its action and humor, and its moral complexity, A Perfect World is one of Eastwood's strongest films, as both an actor and a director.

    Must-See, One of the most under-rated hollywood films

    As mentioned in the previous reviews, it is a great story, a story about a friendship and a bond that are developed through out the movie between two strangers a ruthless killer and a boy who is kidnapped by the killer. The duo's road trip / run-from-the-law across texas is a journey filled with great moments(not to give away) that really keep the audience attached to the story until the very end. The film is certainly not a mere child-kidnapper-run-from-the-law flick. It deals with the issue of child abuse which is basically how the the story begins. How the director uses it as the central structure of the movie is successful. The relationship between the boy and the killer is really the charm of the movie that shows the gray areas of good and bad and right and wrong. It's also funny and heartwarming. Great cast aside from Costner and Eastwood, T.J. Lowther, the boy, and Laura Dern are great as well. Overall, sad but still very satisfying after watching, which is why I love this film.

    Incredible!

    I agreed with the other reviewer! It is a definetly MUST SEE movie. It offers the opportunity to see the inside of the human being. The story, actors and director are GREAT! The performances are overwhelming and the history is very shocking.

    A MUST SEE!!!!

    This is a great movie. The story is one that will keep you interested throughout the entire movie and the musical score fits perfectly. Kevin Costner gives an excellent perfomance; and while Clint Eastwood's acting is good, you can't help but focus on his directorial skills. This is definitly not a movie to miss.
