Movie Reviews

For A Few Dollars More - An outstanding sequel!
K. Wyatt | St. Louis, MO United States | 03/17/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For A Few Dollars More is, in my opinion, by far the best of the "Man With No Name" trilogy! In "A Fistful of Dollars," director Sergio Leone bowled the viewers over with Clint Eastwood's character being a gruff gunslinger of few words and lots of action. In this sequel Eastwood's character has a lot more depth and even a little bit of humor. I am highly impressed with the script and acting in this particular film, especially in comparison with its predecessor. One can even consider it funny but useful that a few of the villains from the first film that were quite dead at the end of that one, are back now with new names! Magnificent performances by both Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef serve to enhance this movie's style.The premise:This movie has a wonderful beginning as we are introduced to Lee Van Cleef's character while he's in the performance of his role of a bounty killer. We are then treated to the reintroduction of Clint Eastwood's character, which actually does have the name of Monco, while he is taking care of his business as a bounty killer as well. Once the director has shown these two acts, he deftly shows how they end up on the same path as they both find out that they can score it big by killing Gian Maria Volonte's character, Indio and his gang. From there, we're taken to El Paso where the film's intrigue and suspense kick into high gear as both Eastwood and Van Cleef's characters meet.If you've never seen this movie or its predecessor, I highly suggest you check these movies out as they're basically the mold for many of the westerns that followed. Prior to this movie and "A Fistful of Dollars," westerns were much tamer, which lends to the popularity of these movies which have a lot more grit and realism to them.Special Features:Just like "A Fistful of Dollars" this movie is jam packed with hours and hours of special features, documentaries etc... This DVD is all about what it's supposed to be, the movie! It does include a great theatrical trailer and an exceptional 8 page booklet that gives a lot of great information about the movie and the people involved. {ssintrepid}"
What happened to the sound-video synchronisation?

"Yes - I know it's dubbed, etc. But something bad has happened to this film's transfer to DVD. The speech is so far out of synchronisation from the video that it is almost unwatchable. I have a VHS version of this film and the problem does not exist there. I also have DVDs of 'Fistful of Dollars' & 'Good, Bad & The Ugly', they don't suffer from the same problem. Can MGM (or somebody) get this sorted out?"
Classic Clint...

"This review refers to the Delux Widescreen Edition VHS.....
He's back for the money again. This time as a "Bounty Killer", who always gets his man. When the poster says "Wanted Dead or Alive", look out if Clint's in the neighborhood! The man with no name (they do mention a name in this one but never actually refer it to him, so it's anybody's guess) has been tracking down the small fry, and now the big fish,Indio, has escaped from jail, leaving a bloody trail and a big price on his head.
Clint follows his trail, but he's not alone in his quest,Col. Mortimer(Lee Van Cleef) is determined he will be the one that gets this guy.They each try to "dissuade" the other, but to no avail. So they team up and set a plan in motion. But can Mortimer really be trusted? Is the money his only motive? Will he betray our guy?
There's lots of great western action and classic scenes, as these two persue Indio and his bloodthirsty gang of thieves.You won't want to miss a minute of it as these two quick draws show their stuff.There are also some wonderful comic moments to break up the action,watch for those.
If you're thinking of getting the VHS or waiting for a special edition DVD to come out you'll be happy with this tape. The digital Video transfer is a good picture, the widescreen(there's also a standard format edition if you prefer) lets you view all the great western scenery, and basically the sound(Hi-Fi) is good as far as clarity and the great musical score by Ennio Morricone. But the dubbing of the dialouge is a little off.The movie is so good though, I could not bring myself to take off a whole star just for that reason. It's classic Clint and Director Sergio Leone knows how to make a clasic western!
Sit a spell and enjoy....Oh and where DOES Clint get those wonderful panchos?.......Laurie

here's a couple of package deals for Eastwood Fans:

The Gauntlet/True Crime
Clint Eastwood Selection: Dirty Harry/The Outlaw Josey Wales/Unforgiven

Not always available but keep an eye out for a good deal"
A excelent film

"A great presentation,lovely quality,well packaged.But why didnt they use a uncut trasfer?The scene where Eastwood and Lee-Van-Cleef,are beaten up.Is not complete.Check out the Laser disc version.Perhaps if enough people complain,they can rectify this."
