    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    An improbable masterpiece -- a bizarre mixture of grandly operatic visuals, grim brutality and sordid violence that keeps wrenching you from one extreme to the other. show more

    There are two kinds of people, my friend. Those who love Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and those who resist the machismo and gallows humor of what is arguably the definitive spaghetti western. show more

    Dave Kehr Chicago Reader

    Though ordained from the beginning, the three-way showdown that climaxes the film is tense and thoroughly astonishing. show more

    All told, and in giant widescreen, it's only blood-red adolescent fun, but it blooms like Douglas Sirk with a Gatling gun compared to the teenage demographic's current fare. Matrix, schmatrix: This is the season's supreme party movie. show more

    A curious amalgam of the visually striking, the dramatically feeble and the offensively sadistic. show more

    Lee Van Cleef played in A Few Dollars more, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, but he didn\'t play in Fistful of Dollars. Both he and Clint were great together!!

    Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef together, Amazing! Not only the best western movie ever made, but two of the best western stars of all time. The two only had three movies together and all of them were unsurpassed by any western genre to this day. For A Few Dollars More Fistful of Dollars The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Lee Van Cleef died wayto young!!
