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 morethat we just don't see in modern movies. It's a simple enough story that is just executed very well. Many classic movies are let down badly by poor music but the famous Ennio Morricone score works brilliantly contributing to a thoroughly enjoyable movie.
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.
