Nice to see the German perspective of events. It surely was a terrible action and in reflection had nothing to do with the outcome of the war. All points of view are catered for and truly shows the horror, of the only firestorm outside of Hiroshima. The love interest is a bit like the one that happens in 'Titanic' but thankfully less sentimental and does not get in the way of the important story. The horror effect of the most heavy carpet bombing, with incendiary devices is evident and the controversy will never end.
Not a bad effort. The film picks up quite considerably when the missing gang turns up and injects some much needed excitement.. Quite original in parts and certainly not as disappointing as some suggest.
The birth of the modern western (or at least a rebirth) that was to change the face of the genre in both Italy and the US forever. The first (highly influential) installment of what was to become the legendary 'Dollars Trilogy' . Slightly rough around the edges but the originality, style and a soundtrack by Ennio Morricone was in time rightly regarded as a classic 'A Fistful of Dollars' might well be a bastardized vision of the west but was a hugely popular hit with the Italian population and whilst the critics of the day slated the movie, for the people it was an instant and identifiable sensation. 'The Man With No Name' character, also revolutionized the hero by giving him an almost identical persona and motive as his enemy (basically loot). The anti-hero now has been imitated by so many since but never truly matched. By breaking every rule in the book Sergio Leone's first western was a breath of fresh air, to what had become a stagnant and almost redundant genre.
I saw this film fairly recently but can hardly remember any of it; whilst the original (from the 80's) is still fresh in my mind. If this really cost 125 million, it was indeed a complete waste of money and even the Medusa scene was pretty average.
Certainly watchable but overrated and a bit too flashy for my taste. Still if you are not expecting too much it's enjoyable and with enough imagination and good special effects, to keep one interested in the story. The acting is way better than the average horror and enough blood and gore for the fans.
