Movie Reviews:

  • John Chard: I was worried about you – all alone, with so many problems to solve…

    The middle part of Sergio Leone’s dollars trilogy sandwich is a mighty hunk of meat and pasta. Plot has Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef as bounty hunters who form a very uneasy alliance to bring down violent bandit El Indio (Gian Maria Volontè) and his gang.

    As befitting Leone in this sub-genre, the pic positively oozes charisma and class. His compositions are as striking as the coolness he wrings out from his lead actors, the characterisations bristling with a calm grizzle factor that beguiles as the story jumps from violence to suspense, from humour to misery, with surprises is store as well. The screenplay adheres to some clichés of the Western formula, but never at a cost to suspense and mystery, such as with the finale that looks set to be formulaic, but joyfully brings its own identity whilst simultaneously adding extra layers to the protags and antag. The dialogue (Leone and Luciano Vincenzoni) pings with literacy, something which is a pleasant mercy in the Spaghetti Western world, while Morricone fills the key scenes with aural shards of atmospheric delight.

    A great film in its own standalone right, but also a super precursor to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. 9/10

  • r96sk: I’d rank it slightly below the original, but that’s unimportant as ‘For a Few Dollars More’ is still a lot of fun.

    Clint Eastwood is tremendous again as the lead character, while Gian Maria Volonté reappears as a different character – usually I’m not a fan of actors playing different characters in a series, but I must make an exception here as Volonté is terrific; just as he is in the preceding 1964 film. One newcomer to the cast is Lee Van Cleef, who is brilliant too.

    A story regarding bounty hunting was always going to be enjoyable, which is most definitely the case here. The aforementioned trio are massively entertaining. I particularly found the ending to be one of the best parts of this.

    I was excited to check out ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ even prior to watching the first two films, given it’s the one I knew most of beforehand, but its two predecessors really have wet the appetite and then some!
