Westerns That Kill the Hero!

Westerns that do away with the hero leverage the connection made between viewers and the hero. Many of the tropes used by Revisionist Westerns, killing off the hero in the end became a Western movie tradition. Whatever a movie's main message may be, the demise of its hero highlights the dangers of the Wild West frontier. It's become more common for Westerns to go against the conventional idea of a triumphant protagonist, choosing a darker conclusion that frames the sacrifices inherent in the genre. Offering a poignant and introspective view on morality, justice, and the fragility of the hero in the Old West, Westerns that killed the protagonist in the end remind viewers that heroism has a price. While heartbreaking, this offers a realistic view of life on the frontier.
