This is a brilliant film, I know it's not meant to be a comedy, but what I found funny was the scene where Lee Van Cleef is scanning the town with his telescope and he sees Clint looking at him from the hotel opposite through binoculars. Another funny scene is where the two of them are shooting each others hats in the air. I would highly recommend this film.

Zoot 10+6.

  My favourite of the trilogy

'For A Few Dollars More' in my opinion is the best of the 'Man with no name' trilogy. Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef are two bounty hunters out to kill villainous Gian Maria Volonte. Eastwood and Van Cleef are both fantastic heroes and Volonte is a great villain,playing a similar role to the one he played in 'A Fistful Of Dollars'. This has alot more to it than the first film and I think it edges the third slightly.

The second in the "dollars" trilogy starring Clint Eastwood is hugely entertaining, not as revered as its successor, "The good, the bad and the ugly", but just as much fun to watch.

Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef are the two meanest hombres to walk the dusty plains and Gian Maria Volonte complements them perfectly with his twitchy, intense performance as the mad bank robber, El Indio.

Splendid visuals, classic Morricone score, great extras, tremendous fun.

Buy the German version, it features a different restoration by Paramount instead of MGM, picture is slightly better and several scenes run slightly longer.

The title of the review is italian for "For A Few Dollars More". "For A Few Dollars More" was a smash hit upon its release in 65. Clint Eastwood returns in this sequel to 1964's "A Fistfull of Dollars" and is joined by Lee Van Cleef. The stroy essentially is about how Eastwood and Van Cleef team up to take on El Indio and his band of bandits, and what a story this is and amazingly portrayed through the vision of Sergio Leone accompanied by breathtaking music from Morricone.

In this film Leone is more relaxed in his style which was developed in Fistfull and this makes for a better film in my opinion but both deserve their 5 star ratings, again Leone adds a breath of fresh air to the genre, taking the next few runs up the ladder from Fistfull to another level. Clint is amazing again as the man with no name or as he is credited as by a sheriff "Manco" which is mexican for stranger I think. What is nice to see is an older more experianced bounty hunter Colonel Douglas Mortimer played by Van Cleef, who sort of mentors Clint's character, the role was originally ment to be for Henry Fonda. Nevertheless Van Cleef is amazing and the movie made him a huge star in Europe and he would go on to make loads more Spagetti Westerns. Gian Maria Volonte is brilliant as the larger than life Indio and great supporting performances from Mario Brega and Klaus Kinski.

The story is amazing as mentioned before and builds up to an awesome climax, with plenty of the Leone style all the way through. This movie is one of the all time great westerns ever made along with its predecessor and is worth the watch for any fan of the genre or anyone wanting to watch a western and a must to any dvd collection. This is a real treasure so enjoy!
