Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Sergio Leone's trilogy of operatic spaghetti Westerns with Clint Eastwood made the former TV star into an international sensation as the scraggly, silent Man with No Name, a wandering rogue with a scheming mind and a sense of humor drier than the dusty, wind-scoured desert. With A Fistful of Dollars, a blatant rip-off of Kurosawa's cynical samurai hit Yojimbo, Leone transforms the Western hero into a crafty mercenary. The follow-up, For a Few Dollars More, teams Eastwood up in an uneasy alliance with Lee Van Cleef in a tale of revenge, but the masterpiece of the set is The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, an epic scramble for buried gold set against the violence of the Civil War. In this film good is a relative term as three criminals make a series of tenuous partnerships broken in double-crosses and betrayals in Leone's epic vision of the American southwest as endless deserts and clapboard towns infested with gunmen. This was a new kind of Western: cynical, violent, stylish, and austere. Eastwood's rough face and squinting eyes fill the widescreen frame in massive close-ups while Leone stages action in bold compositions on empty streets and stark landscapes. The guns ring out in cartoonish exaggeration, and the music, an eclectic, electric mix of buzzing guitar, human voice, and harmonica by Ennio Morricone, sets the whole thing in a world pitched between myth and modernity. Leone's shot-in-Spain trilogy ushered in a flood of Italian spaghetti Westerns, but none hold a candle to Leone's stylish classics. --Sean Axmaker

Format:Blu-ray
Updated for Blu-ray 4K remaster:

The new edition has a distinct yellow and teal overtone now. "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly" is the only film that has received a make over. There is less DNR applied to some of the films. The differences are striking but in my opinion not necessarily better (although the use of less DNR is appreciated). Detail is quite nice in this new edition although the transfer is also darker.

Original Review:

Sergio Leone's classic trilogy of films with Clint Eastwood arrives on Blu-ray (and also in a separate DVD release ) under "The Man with No Name" with varying results. All three films "Fistful of Dollars", "For a Few Dollars More" and "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" (the last film previously released on Blu-ray before this set)have their individual issues but, on the whole, all three films have more positives than negatives when it comes to their debut on HD.

I'm going to skip the plot summaries since others have already done a good job with that.

"Fistful of Dollars" clearly isn't the same transfer as the European edition; skin tones tend to be a bit red and the framing is a bit different than the European restored edition. I'm not sure if the original negative was accessed for this edition (I doubt it)but it could use a bit of restoration work.

Still, it looks pretty good with good detail. Overall the transfer looks quite good and digital noise reduction doesn't mar this one quite as badly as it does "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" (which still looks good even with that issue). Audio sounds quite nice as well.I'd also note that fans should be prepared--it looks quite grainy but this is the way the film was shot and originally shown in theaters.

I will skip a review of these films, as anyone here looking at this review already knows that all three of these films are masterpieces of their genre, and must-owns on Blu-Ray. What I will review is the latest remaster for this trilogy set. I own both the 2010 Man With No Name Trilogy and the latest 2014 remastering of the MWNNT. So how do they compare?

To begin, only The Good, The Bad and The Ugly gets a 4K remastering (meaning that this 2014 release is in 1080p, scanned from a 4K source; it is NOT an actual 4K Blu-Ray release); as far as I can tell, the other two films are exactly the same as the 2010 box set. So how does the new PQ of TGBU remaster rate? Decidedly mixed, IMO. (NOTE: For your convenience, I have uploaded screenshot comparisons of the 2010 version and the 2014 version of TGBU, via the customer images link on the top of this web page; see for yourself)

As well reported, the 2010 Blu-Ray release of TGBU was marred by some PQ issues, namely DNR was liberally used throughout the film, to wipe away some (but not all) of the grain inherent with the film stock TGBU was shot in. However, I did not find the DNR to be nowhere near as bad as some other infamous Blu-Ray titles, such as 'Predator: Ultimate Edition', 'Gladiator' and 'Patton'; for instance, actors did not appear waxy in the 2010 TGBU release, as was the case in those other aforementioned Blu-Ray releases. Overall, while far from perfect (framing is a bit off and blue push in the tint was a bit strong), I found the picture to be reasonably good-looking for a film of its age, film stock and budget. That being said, a film of this caliber cries out for an extensive remastering, à la Lowry Digital.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray review November 11, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
1. In a nutshell:

Picture quality:
- "Fistful": 4/5
- "Few More": 4.5/5
- "Good, Bad, Ugly": 3,5/5
Region Free!
Widescreen 2.35:1 orig.
Audio: English, Spanish, French (German/Italian also on "Good, Bad, Ugly")
Extras: seem to be the same as on 2-disc DVD sets.
NB: extraordinary audio commentary by Leone expert Christopher Frayling!

In my view this box set is a bargain (I ordered my copies for $29).
If you like these Leone films, then this 3-piece set should be a no-brainer.

2. For sprocket hole addicts (myself included):

All films of this "trilogy" (of course it wasn't intended as such) were shot in "Techniscope" (i.e. 2 perforation holes instead of 4, as in "Cinemascope" ) hence cutting stock costs in half - unfortunately same goes for picture resolution. Therefore a slightly lesser picture quality than in usual Cinemascope Blu-ray transfers is the result. But this only adds to the intentional grittiness of Carlo Simi's production design. Much better prints are not likely in the future.
Still these Blu-ray prints of the three movies differ in their picture quality with "Few More" being the best (except some minor visible stain at TC 00:04:09-56, Chpt. 2) followed by "Fistful" and "Good, Bad, Ugly" (due to excessive DNR processing).

Alternatives for the 3-disc box set?
- "Fistful" - you can also look for the Italian BD release from RHV (Ripleys Home Video; Region Free) available from bol.it.
- "Few More" - this BD is available seperately
- "Good, Bad, Ugly" - you could wait for an enhanced BD version, but who knows when this will be around? "Good, Bad, Ugly" of course could use some improvement...

Awesome video and sound quality. Mediocre packaging for such an excellent trilogy though. The studio shouldn't have cheapened the series with such penny-pinching. Read more
