By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential western ever mounted, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is an engrossing actioner shot through with a volatile mix of myth and realism. Clint Eastwood returns as the "Man With No Name," this time teaming with two gunslingers (Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef) to pursue a cache of $200,000and letting no one, not even warring factions in a civil war, stand in their way. From sun-drenched panoramas to bold,hard close-ups, exceptional camera work captures the beauty and cruelty of the barren landscape andthe hardened characters who stride unwaveringly through it. Forging a vibrant and yet detached style of action that had not been seen before, and has never been matched since, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly shatters the western mold in true Clint Eastwood style.
Clint Eastwood (the Man with No Name) is good, Lee Van Cleef (Angel Eyes Sentenza) is bad, and Eli Wallach (Tuco Benedito Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez) is ugly in the final chapter of Sergio Leone's trilogy of spaghetti westerns (the first two were A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More). In this sweeping film, the characters form treacherous alliances in a ruthless quest for Confederate gold. Leone is sometimes underrated as a director, but the excellent resolution on this digital video disc should enhance appreciation of his considerable photographic talent and gorgeous widescreen compositions. Ennio Morricone's jokey score is justifiably famous.

It was one of the best cowboy shoot em ups I had seen then and yuppers now 40 years later it still is among the best of the best.
Eastwood is hard core at his best!!.
I have wanted to buy this entire series for all of this time,finally I bought this one and the 2 others exactly like it in it's series.
They are by the way the best ones of those I reviewed, they are as great now to watch as they were then...
I seldom watch movies twice, this is a exception it's very well done.
I love my copy and the others in the series
My opinion is that someone goofed up, and put the yellow tint too high, and MGM said, aw, f*ck it-this has to be out for the holiday shopping market and we've spent too much on this film already..." thats what i think
