For Three Men The Civil War Wasn't Hell. It Was Practice!

By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential western ever mounted. The Good, The Bad And The Ugly is an engrossing actioner shot through with a volatile mix of myth and realism. Clint Eastwood returns as the Man With No Name, this time teaming with two gunslingers (Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef) to pursue a cache of $200,000 - and letting no one, not even warring factions in a civil war, stand in their way. From sun-drenched panoramas to bold hard close-ups, exceptional camera work captures the beauty and cruelty of the barren landscape and the hardened characters who stride unwaveringly through it. Forging a vibrant and yet detached style of action that had not been seen before, and has never been matched since, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly shatters the western mold in true Clint Eastwood style.

I'm not generally a fan of westerns or movies from this era in general but for whatever reason this movie is excellent. The DVD looks fantastic on a big screen highlighting some great cinematography... Read more

Superbly paced film with brilliant characters. Put that together with a top musical score and you've got a must see movie. Easily beats todays blockbusters which often rely on car chases and explosions to carry the film.

Its like the 10th time we've seen it - and it never, never gets boring. Not the characters, not the scenery, not the storyline, not the humour, not the tragedy, not the one-liners .. it's all there... Read more

For sheer entertainment value, a great movie, totally unbelievable action and situations, but - lots of fun to watch

Absolute classic, must see western. A bit long, convoluted and with dated/stilted dialogue but definitely worth the effort.

I know nothing about westerns. I got this because it had won awards. The characters were amusing and some intelligent thought had gone into developing them. Sorry I can't say the same for the story... Read more
