The idiosyncrasies are there, all right, but they have never seemed less interesting.

The new print is good, and the 20 restored minutes are choice.
Audience Reviews for Duck, You Sucker (Giù la testa)
A minor classic that sadly pales in comparison with those other superior films made by Leone, but still it is a great Western about friendship in a political revolution and has an enchanting melancholy score by Ennio Morricone and mesmerizing performances.
This great film gets harsh judgement after the masterpieces that Leone directed before it., but put it up against any other Italian Western or any other Western for that matter and it's still a classic. James Coburn and Rod Steiger are great and this film features one of Morricone's greatest scores.
Another solid Leone film. Thematically it feels as though it were a companion piece to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. While the characters may not be as memorable as the ones that Eastwood, Wallach, and Cleef created, Coburn and Stieger really hold their own. (In fact, Steiger's performance is so solid that I am almost convinced that DePalma later lifted many of Stieger's mannerisms for his remake of Scarface.) Although it isn't as visually enthralling as TGTBTU, Leone still crafts some scenes that make the viewer wonder how he dreamed up such a sequence. Being Leone's last Western, fans can at least rejoice that he ended on a good note.
