Movie Info

This pulse-pounding follow-up to Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars brings back Clint Eastwood as the serape-clad, cigar-chewing "Man With No Name." Engaged in an ongoing battle with bounty hunter Col. Douglas Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef), the Man joins forces with his enemy to capture homicidal bandit Indio (Gian Maria Volontè). Both the Eastwood and Van Cleef characters are given understandable motivations for their bloodletting tendencies, something that was lacking in A Fistful of Dollars. In

Leone's artful editing of close-ups to communicate the characters' spatial relationships is always a pleasure.

A hard-hitting western with upper-case values out of the busy Italo stable, this is a topnotch action entry.

A significant step forward from A Fistful of Dollars, with the usual terrific compositions, Morricone score, and taciturn performances, not to mention the ubiquitous flashback disease.

The fact that this film is constructed to endorse the exercise of murderers, to emphasize killer bravado and generate glee in frantic manifestations of death is, to my mind, a sharp indictment of it as so-called entertainment in this day.

Here is a gloriously greasy, sweaty, hairy, bloody and violent Western. It is delicious.

Lean, mean, atmospheric and blackly comic spaghetti western by the team who all but invented the genre, well deserving of its reputation as one of the era's very best.

Doesn't have the narrative strength of the first in the trilogy but individual scenes are still brilliant and each ingredient in just perfect, cast, score, tone...

Most fans pick The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly as the stand-out, but I really like this one best.

A tremendously good sequel, on top of being a tremendously good movie in and of itself - surely the best Italian Western at the time of its release.

He indulges in a certain sexually-charged imagery lifted straight from film noir

Looser and more relaxed as well as more elaborate than Fistful, the film is best appreciated as a series of outrageous set-pieces.

The amoral film should give the less hardy pause as to its relevance or worth or endorsement for vigilante justice.

By introducing the character of Mortimer, Leone is able to counterpoint Eastwood's cold, amoral gunslinger with a man who has a past and a purpose.

Clint's spaghetti oater #2 has its stylistic, no-name moments.

The best of the so-called Dollars Trilogy.

The weak link in the "Dollars" trilogy, but still a good ride.

Clint Eastwood, just as the spagetti western schtick was beginning to get old.

"The man with no name" returns in this sequel to A Fistful of dollars in which he forms an uneasy alliance with another bounty hunter to kill the head of an outlaw gang while they hatch a scheme to rob the most heavily guarded bank in the territory. For A Few Dollars More is not considered the best of the series by many, but I personally prefer it to the (damn good) original at least. It feels far more like a true Leone film, is better paced and boasts not one but three commanding presences in the form of Clint, Lee Van Cleef's steely eyed and clinical assassin, and Gian Maria Volonte's sinister bandit. The interplay between the three is fantastic and there are many classic Leone moments including his trademark framing of weathered, characterful faces against epic landscapes. There is more depth to the story as the heist and undercover elements involve layers of deceit and betrayal leading to an extremely atmospheric finale. Add to that Ennio Morricone's score which is once again wonderfully memorable and you have all the ingredients for an all time classic western.

Though not as essential as its predecessor, For A Few Dollars more shows Leone's style evolving. Nice addition with Lee Van Cleef as well.
