The Unforgiven sometimes spawns with a accessory; a rare find, treasured by most Vault-hunters. It combines good accuracy, incredible fire power, the shotgun spread effect and, most importantly, phenomenal critical hit damage should all 7 projectiles hit their mark. Few enemies on Pandora, included, can survive a full critical hit from an Unforgiven Masher.
In a combat scenario, the Unforgiven takes raw skill to use effectively, especially when only equipped with the 2-round cylinder. It is possible to use the Unforgiven as a Sniper Rifle substitute if it spawns with a scope. But to use it in typical revolver fashion is difficult. It should be noted that a missed critical hit in a low-health situation can be fatal to the user, as the delay between trigger pulls leaves a large window for enemies to exploit and retaliate. Use at close range is not advised to playstyles that don't favor accuracy.
Monday night at the Newport Beach Film Festival saw a film that I have been anticipating for some time be represented as the Japanese Spotlight feature of the night. I was quite happy to have seen it. The Japanese remake of Unforgiven makes a good case for why I am never against the idea of a remake, before I actually see it or have enough information to pass judgment. Clint Eastwood’s 1992 Best Picture winner is the film I consider to be his best work as a filmmaker (and as an actor, for that matter), so the concept of remaking his film should presumably strike ire in the hearts of those that claim remakes are always terrible. Of course, hypocrisy is a funny thing, as the reaction to Ken Watanabe starring in a samurai version of the same story seems to have made most skeptics excited about this particular idea. Still, this is not about the public at large, it is about what I thought of the film, which basically amounts to being an interesting remix.
