Review of High Noon (1952)

A fun movie with a great song accompanying it. Also, very macho, Will Kane goes it alone because the rest of the town has some excuse to get out of the fight.

I was a little bothered by the preacher's comment. The preacher states, "The commandment is 'Thou shalt not kill,' but we hire men to go do it for us." In reality, the commandment is "Thou shalt not murder," which breaks down the entire argument of the preacher. Both Christians and members of society have a right to defend their lives should an unjust force try to take it from this. The preacher should have known this, instead he becomes indecisive and ineffective. He could have rallied the people to the aid of Kane and defended the town.
