deemed as one of the greatest westerns of all time this is a great film. it does however have a couple of flaws. one being that is drags on a little and the story thins out in places. still a classic.

  My all time favourite movie

I remember watching this movie when I was very young. I loved it to bits and now I still consider it to be my all-time favourite movie. Sergio Leone is just a master of the western. He focuses in on the characters, and their expressions, and builds up to the best climaxes.

The film has some great acting. Eastwood is cool as Blondie a.k.a. 'The Man with No Name', Lee Van Cleef is the brutal Angel Eyes, and my favourite character of them all, Tuco, played by Eli Wallach. This version has some restored scenes, so you can consider this the definitive cut of the movie.

Granted it is a long film which some people can get put off by, but for me it's Leone's way of getting the film set up. Leone was never a man to quickly rush his movies, he took his time and precision and it shows here. The film plays through until that wonderful showdown at the end which is so iconic. The close ups and quick cuts to the majestic soundtrack by Ennio Morricone makes it something to always remember.

I highly recommend the movie and the special features that come with this special edition. There are some really interesting documentaries which feature Wallach and Eastwood. For 5 pounds this really is the perfect way to be introduced to the spaghetti western genre, and in my opinion, the best movie ever made...

was very suprised when i watched this film as im not really into westerns anymore.used to watch alot of john waynes but this does beat them all.it wouldnt probably even be in my top 30 but it is definatly worth buying.havnt seen true grit remake yet but even the trailer looks better.overall a great film but in my opinion you could get away with taking a few scenes out and making it slightly shorter to round it up to perfection. sig: j.sheppard (movie guru)

  OUTSTANDING

This is an absolute classic western which set the standard which so many has since tried and failed to better. Clint Eastwood is back as the ever-cool "man with no name", Eli Wallach gives and brilliantly vile-but in a strange way likeable "Tuco" & the great Lee Van Cleef returns as one of the best villains in movie history "Angel Eyes". A superb story runs throughout masterfully directed by Sergio Leone, including dozens of classics scenes and dialogue. Ennio Morricone provides a classic musical score yet again. One of the best films of all time & Clint Eastwood's defining role.

  The best of the trilogy.

If you have'nt seen any of the Clint Eastwood trilogy of 'Spaghetti Westerns' then I strongly recommend 'A fistfull of dollars' first followed by 'For a few dollars more' second. Finally watch this film 'The good the bad and the ugly', it is the best climax of the three, the three main characters play their parts so well, I just love the stand-off in the circle and the music just adds emotion to the scene. The part where 'Tuco' (Eli Wallach) is running through the graveyard searching for the grave where the gold is buried just gets you thinking that the enormous size of the graveyard will be too big to find the grave for days. Without telling you too much about the film look for the scene where 'Clint' is taking the final shot, the outcome will suprise you. All in all a true 'Classic' of a film, don't be put off that this film was made in the 1960's as picture quality is superb you will be forgiven for thinking that this film was made in the late 1990's it is that good. A totally timeless film for all ages to watch and enjoy, this is my favourite western of all time, I first watched it in the 1980's, I bought it Feb 2010 and have watched it another 3 times since (31/Mar/2010). To get down to it just BUY this film it will be the best 4.99 you will ever spend on a DVD, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 5/5

Yes, yes, we all know Eastwood is class; yes, yes we all know Cleef is enigmatic and yes, yes they do make the film good. (yadda yadda yadda). But you know what gives this film a legendary status? I'll tell you what, Mr Eli Wallach in the role of Tuco, that's what - he adds a dimension to this film that all films should aspire to.
