"The leading icon of a generation" (Roger Ebert), Academy Award(r) winner* Clint Eastwood continues his trademark role as the legendary "Man With No Name" in this second installment of the famous Sergio Leone trilogy. Scripted by Luciano Vincenzoni and featuring Ennio Morricone's haunting musical score, For A Few Dollars More is a modern classicone of the greatest Westerns evermade. Eastwood is a keen-eyed, quick-witted bounty hunter on the bloody trail of Indio, the territory's most treacherous bandit. But his ruthless rival, Colonel Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef, High Noon), is determined to bring Indio in first...dead or alive! Failing to capture their preyor eliminate each otherthe two are left with only one option: team up, or face certain death atthe hands of Indio and his band of murderous outlaws.

Additional Features

Disc 1 presents For a Few Dollars More in glorious 2.35:1-ratio widescreen Techniscope (a "poor-man's Cinemascope" process that squeezed two images into each normal 35mm frame), with a new Dolby Digital 5.1-channel surround mix--admittedly a bane to Leone purists who prefer the film's original mono soundtrack, but a positive boon for 21st-century home-theater systems. In his lively and authoritative feature-length audio commentary, noted British film historian and Leone biographer Sir Christopher Frayling provides an in-depth analysis of the film, along with details about the production (Leone's first with an adequate budget--in this case $600,000) and a comprehensive discussion of the film's historical context.

On disc 2, Frayling further examines For a Few Dollars More in "A New Standard" (20:15), a "making of" featurette with emphasis on the film's male/male dynamic (described by Frayling as Leone's "invention of the brother he never had"). In "Back for More" (7:08), star Clint Eastwood recalls how he'd begun to watch Leone to inform his own directorial ambitions. "Tre Voci" (11:05) is a combination of retrospective interviews with producer Alberto Grimaldi, screenwriter Sergio Donati, and Mickey Knox, an American actor living in Rome who provided many of the post-synchronized voices for the English-language versions of Leone's films. "The Original American Release Version" (5:19) examines three edits that were made for the film's U.S. release (including removal of the name "Manco" so Eastwood's character could remain anonymous in the film's successful "Man with No Name" marketing campaign). The delightful "Location Comparisons" provide a 10-minute montage of original For a Few Dollars More film clips meticulously matched to photos taken on the same locations in 2004 by devoted Leone fans Donald S. Bruce and Marla J. Johnson. --Jeff Shannon

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.

There is much discussion elsewhere on this film in terms of plot summary, meaning, and value so I won't get into that. My reviews are strictly regarding the transfer from Standard Definition to Blu Ray. I did not have the Standard Def version so this is not a comparison between the two.

I've given this movie 4 stars because it is a good film....it would be 2 stars based upon the quality of the Blu Ray transfer alone.

When I first put in the DVD I went to 'Set Up' as always. You are given a choice between the original mono mix and the DTS HD 5.1. I went with the DTS tho that might have been an error on my part. It is also the first time I discussed the audio transfer prior to the video. The audio clearly was not given much of a remix. Rather the editors simply would pan to the front left or right depending upon who was providing the dialogue and where they were on the front stage. The audio pans were very obvious as the volume would also jump at the pan for a moment. While the movie score, so famous by now, was decently spread across the front channels, there was literally no use of the LFE channel except for one small moment when they blow up the bank. Otherwise, your sub will be sleeping through the movie. The rear channels were very rarely used. If I am wrong, and they really did remix the audio, it must be the worst case of mixing I have ever heard. On a positive note, the dialogue was, for the most part, clean and clear and the audio levels balanced.

The film starts with a lone horseman being shot off his horse as the opening credits come on. When I first saw this, I thought I was in trouble because there was a ton of grain in the picture as well as banding and wavering in the sky and desert.

Federico Fellini is often credited as "the Greatest Italian Director." For me, however, Sergio Leone earned those laurels. More than deSica or Fellini, Leone's movies were Italian to the core: Grandiose, operatic, melodramatic, full of vendetta and vengeance. The irony is that Leone's most memorable movies took place not in Rome, the Abruzzi mountains or Sicily, but in the Old West.
With his epic "Once Upon a Time in the West" and "The Man With No Name" trilogy, Leone not only resuscitated the Western genre, but set a new standard. His first Western, "A Fistful of Dollars," was basically a retelling of Akira Kurosawa's "Yojimbo"; a Samurai tale transplanted south of the border in old Mexico. With "For a Few Dollars More," Leone really opens up as a screenwriter and director. Gone is the claustrophobic town of "Fistful," replaced by the full sweep of the great American Southwest (for which the drier regions of Spain provide a reasonable facsimile for those of us who know that Tucumcari is hardly so dry and El Paso nary as mountainous).
Leone also begins staking out his territory as director with this one, too. "For a Few Dollars More" bears more traces of Cecil B. deMille than Kurosawa, as Leone starts trending toward an epic production that reaches full fruition in "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" and "Once Upon A Time in the West." However, Leone's *style* of Western could never be confused with John Ford -- rather, it hearkens back to the more violent moments found in Westerns such as "Winchester '73" (Anthony Mann), "High Noon" (Fred Zinnemann) and "Rio Bravo" (Howard Hawks), and looks forward to the gritty, realistic violence from directors influenced by Leone, such as Sam Peckinpah, Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese.

Leone on BluRay
I wholeheartedly agree. Can't believe the Leones weren't some of the first in line for Blu-ray.
