The Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns did not simply add a new chapter to the genre...they reinvented it. From his shockingly violent and stylized breakthrough, A Fistful Of Dollars, to the film Quentin Tarantino calls the best-directed movie of all time, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, Leone s vision elevated Westerns to an entirely new art form. This definitive Leone collection of the most ambitious and influential Westerns ever made includes over five hours of special features that uncover buried gold in these gritty classics plus a NEWLY REMASTERED version of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.

I must have seen every version of this film beginning with US theater versions and VHS versions ever since the 1970's... I have to say this new 4k scan made from the original camera negative and not some inter-negative or cobbled parts of prints is superb... the best the movie has ever looked... even Theater versions I have seen.
I have two other Bluray versions that were remastered, but they were done in a HD 1080p scan and not 4k scan, and were made from corrected prints and not the direct camera negative... they can not compare. in addition to the new resolution, there is some very interesting framing that has never existed (except for the Italian original release)... there is a lot of new frame area round the tops and bottoms and more notably the left and right sides. this doesn't reveal any additional really important images, but it does reset the layout to something more akin to Leone's original vision... and I do agree it looks much better. More relaxed and much less compressed, which is great even though we have all gotten used to the cropped tight image that we've been accustomed to over the years of seeing this movie.
there is one element that is controversial... it is the "TINT" of the movie. the movie has a very distinct yellow tint to the image... something that no one foresaw, but it has been confirmed that this "yellowish tint" as being Leone's original vision... and combined with the additional framing area, restores the directors idea for the movie.
Overall I have to say that this movie benefits greatly from this 4k scan as many of the scenes actually come alive with depth and dimension almost to the point where they look three dimensional.
When I made the purchase I had glanced over a review saying something about improvements made to sound but I didn't give it much thought and just assumed the Blu-ray version couldn't be improved much over the DVDs I had once owned. I finally got around to watching the Blu-ray versions of Fistful of Dollars and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I don't know if it's because I now have a 7.1 theater, the Blu-ray sound was dramatically improved, or both, but the Blu-ray versions of these classics are phenomenal. Not only are there massively noticeable improvements to the sound, but the Blu-ray version of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly includes all of the cut scenes not on the television and DVD version I owned (ie. the first of which is a 5 minute scene after Tuco robs the gun merchant and is preparing a chicken and potatoes in a cave.) Some people many not care much about this but the Blu-ray menus I think are very nicely done, not cheaply done as I've seen many other DVDs do with old movies. Next time around I watch the movies with the added narration track.
5 stars for sure.
