This is easily the best film out of Sergio Leone’s Man With No Name Trilogy. The plot is incredible filled with twists and turns. Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Gian Maria Volontè bring this film to life and makes it a joy to watch from beginning to end. If you ever wanted a villain to root against look no further than Volontè. He plays the role perfectly. There is plenty of funny moments between Eastwood and Van Cleef to help break up the intensity of the movie. This should be on everyone’s bucket list to watch. You will not be disappointed.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
Okay, what I’m about to say is probably not a popular opinion. This is the best film out of the Man With No Name Trilogy. For A Few Dollars More is a cut above any of the other films. From the exchange between Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef when they begin to have a showdown by shooting each others hats to the crazy six shooter that can be modified into a rifle and finally the show down between Clint Eastwood and Gian Maria Volontè. This movie is spectacular the final duel with the disturbing song that is played is a cinematic masterpiece. The flash backs of Volontè are brilliant because it gives the character a back story of twisted and evil intentions that makes the character more believable. Since this the second in the trilogy it isn’t really much of spoiler to say that Eastwood defeats Volontè in an epic fashion. The scenes are so iconic and well executed it is a shame that this film is overlooked for the squeal which isn’t half as good as this one.
