Reviewed version - SPO DVD

Bill's family was massacred when he was a child. Now when he is older, it is the time for revenge. Ryan was double-crossed by the same men Bill is after. Ryan however want them alive to cash in on them while Bill is only interested in killing them. Can the two men of different agendas work together?

This is one of the more known, not to be missed Spaghetti Westerns. 'For A Few Dollars More' comes to your mind more than once. Forget about the intro and the bit boring parts towards the middle of the movie. It gets better and better towards the end.

Incudes my all time favourite gundown: When Ryan enters the desert village as a peon...

Ennio Morricone music is once again superb, a little different than usual but it's great, very powerful.

Great Spaghetti Western with the Leone 'For A Few Dollars More' feel, a must see.

 

Ryan: "-Somebody tries to shoot me in the back I defend myself."

Bill: "-You got a stupid face but you get it."
