  • At its most simplified, Sucker punches its way to the top of the Italian-western mountains, but never reaches the peak of its immortalized trilogy brethren. show more

  • Well-plotted action, but as in most of Leone's films scenes seem to have been deleted from the American prints. show more

  • A marvelous sense of detail and spectacular effects--good fun all the way. show more
