"Duck, You Sucker" (also known as "A Fistful of Dynamite") is one of those films you need to watch a couple of times before you can fully appreciate it. It's another Western epic from Sergio Leone, yet it is extremely different from his famous "Man with No Name" trilogy. Filled with more deep personal conflicts, transformations and revelations, this makes for one entertaining film.

Juan is a despicable thief and sometimes murderer who's not afraid to get his hands a little dirty if it means getting goods and money for he and his family. John is an Irish Revolutionary who has expertise in blowing just about anything up to smithereens. When Juan sees the man in action, he gets the idea that John could help him empty out the bank of his dreams. With Juan's trigger finger and John's dynamite tossing, how could it go wrong? The only thing is Juan ends up getting himself involved in an unexpected revolution that he never wanted to be a part of, and for better or worse the two end up forming a very odd bond and team.

I wouldn't call this my favorite Leone film, but it is one I find myself watching again and again. There's just something very appealing about it, and that's no easy feat when you really set out to have your main guy, Rod Steiger who plays "Juan," to be as despicable and vile as they come. Within the first 10 minutes or so, we see him kill somebody, rob a group of snobs and even rape a woman snob (though the rape isn't violent and is relatively short, it still is rape). I really thought there was no way in hell I would be able to sympathize for a character like that, but I knew there was the great James Coburn who could make the movie work for me.

I hadn't seen this film in years but it was showing the other night when I was at my mother's house. We were both riveted by it and I suddenly remembered seeing thie Sergio Leone movie as a kid and being haunted by the music as well as the plot. The plot involves an Irish revolutionary who is experienced in blowing things up who escapes the law in Ireland, goes on the lam and ends up in Mexico, only to be taken in by a bunch of criminals (the boss played to perfection by Rod Steiger) who nickname Coburn "Firecracker" for his amazing skill with dynamite. The whole bunch is, in turn, caught up in the Mexican Revolution.
I know this was supposed to be a part of a trilogy by Leone but this movie stands alone just fine. Both Coburn and Steiger play guys who are, at first, totally self-interested and then begin to need each other but so slowly that it is completely believable. Nothing seems inevitable in this movie and saccharine, sentimental and schlocky this movie is not.
After watching this, I just wondered: WHY don't they make movies like this anymore, not only full of action and pure macho (there are plenty of those movies still being made) but the kind of male characters that have some depth, heart and believable, unique personalities?

This film was nearly lost to American viewers for many years. This story is unique in the sense that a renegade Irishman bands with a Mexican rogue and his family amidst the madness of Mexico torn by civil war. There are some brutal moments and some very funny scenes. The feeling of the time is captured as only Leone could do. Some terrific battle scenes and one of the best train wrecks ever filmed. Great dialog and great musical score by Ennio Morricone is both haunting and flowing. Plenty of action and adventure for the hardcore fan of the Italian films. Check it out.

About time this movie came out on dvd. I was starting to think it wouldn't! Another excellent spaghetti western from the master himself, though a bit different from what we're used to. As far as the plot goes, we have Juan(Rod Steiger) as a Mexican bandit with his sights set on a bank. Fate crosses his paths with Irish demolitions expert, John(James Coburn), who's a wanted man for his revolutionary acts in Ireland. Together they set out to rob this bank, but instead end up heroes in the Mexican revolution. Though this is Leone's genre, the movie is quite different than his previous four westerns. It has some humorous moments, but the movie is rather grim and doesn't show the Mexican revolution in the heroic light as many other westerns do. Most of Leone's playfulness is gone. There is a lack of the lone, nameless gunfighter that we're used to seeing(which means there are none of those legendary quickdraw showdowns). We have two central protagonist that don't achieve that mythic status like Eastwood and Bronson. Both are antiheroes and you grow to like them over the course of the movie, but they are scumbags for lack of a better term. Early in the movie Juan rapes a woman! There's no larger than life villain either. There are two guys that play the villain role, but only because the enemy needed a figure to represent itself. There's alot more profanity this time around, and Leone has now discovered squibs for some of the bloody gunshot wounds. There seems to have been a decent budget on this movie because some of the battle scenes are very impressive. Leone still shows us he knows how to compose a shot. There's one scene showing four trenches full of Mexican revolutionaries getting executed that is breathtaking. Naturally, Leone takes his time in telling this story.Read more ›
