Sergio Leone's grandiose 1966 western epic is nothing less than a masterclass in movie storytelling, a dynamic testament to the sheer, invigorating uniqueness of cinema.

This is an all time cinema classic Western. It is a unique western with a different plot. The three stars, Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef, each give magnificent performances. The plot is utterly fascinating, having you wondering until the very end how it will turn out. The scenery is absolutely beautiful when it is not cruel. The movie is filled with varied scenarios, each somehow related to the main plot. This is a must see movie for anyone who has ever watched a motion picture and a grand prize for Clint Eastwood fans.

Leone reaches the level of absolute perfection in this third film of his Dollar Trilogy, a magnificent Spaghetti Western - arguably the best of them all - that features fantastic performances, an unforgettable score and a sublime, breathtaking cinematography.

Completely over-rated. A total waste of time. A horribly callous mentality prevails throughout. Eastwood's character sucks

A classic. One of the best movies made. IMDb gives it 8.9, which is a remarkably high score.

At 3 hours this is one long film, and with some good editing it can be shortened and made better. Great sound track. But it pales by comparison with my all-time favourite, Once Upon a Time in The West, also by Sergio Leone.

The best of the Dollars trilogy by far and chronologically precedes the other two in the Leone-verse. The blue ray is the one to buy (not borrow!) as there's about 20 extra minutes in it.

The greatest movie ever made, bar none. Forget Citizen Kane. Forget Casablanca. THIS is the standard by which all others are judged. This type of cinematic perfection has yet to be reproduced anywhere since and probably never will. From Clint's steely eyed stare, to Tuco's wild feral look, to Angel Eyes' cold cruel demeanor, this movie presents a believably effective character study of 3 very different personalities all vying for the same goal: a fortune in military cash. One of them will do everything to get it, one of them will do anything to get it, and the third will do anything to get it first and keep the other two from succeeding. Brilliant cinematography, acting (especially from the late great Eli Wallach) directing (from the equally late and great Sergio Leone) along with an unforgettable soundtrack (by the brilliant musical prodigy Ennio Morricone) and remarkable set pieces combine to create an epic of timeless proportions. The movie even looks incredible despite being filmed in the late 60's!
If you love movies, if you appreciate a good story along with nail biting action, you cannot go through life without seeing this one.
THE GOOD: Everything.
THE BAD: Nothing.
THE UGLY: The bad and the ugly have passed. God rest their souls.
