A gunslinger arrives in a town ruined by the constant fighting between two rival gangs. Realising there is a profit to be made he decides to play the gangs against each other but soon finds the stakes raised far higher.
Truth be told I have never been a huge fan of the spaghetti western but this is certainly one of the best examples of the genre with Clint Eastwood of course faultless as 'the man with no name'. For your money you get everything you would expect from a western of this era including the obligatory close up shots during shootouts, a dramatic score and badly dubbed Mexican actors.
When compared to more modern westerns such as 3:10 To Yuma these older movies don't quite stand up but there is certainly still enjoyment to be had in watching a masterful director like Sergio Leone do his thing.
