A phenomenal movie about how war corrupts a society, even those who do not participate.

Taken as a straight-up oater, Sergio Leone’s masterful direction (and Ennio Morricone’s iconic score) makes for an intensely watchable “blood ’n bullets” saga with central Spain standing in nicely for America’s Wild West. But there are deeper layers to be plumbed here for the film also resembles a cosmic morality play with influences ranging from the Tarot Deck (The Fool, The Magician, The Hanged Man, Judgment, Fate, and Fortune are among the cards Leone tosses out) to Eastern mysticism and a nod to Carl Jung for as the trinity face one another in the middle of a cemetery the headstones come to resemble nothing less than an intricate mandala. Even the Civil War, constantly raging in the background, personifies ultimate futility after both sides wreak annihilation on one another over a rickety old bridge. All these years later it’s still hard to believe it wasn’t even nominated for one single Academy Award.

Sergio Leone's grandiose 1966 western epic is nothing less than a masterclass in movie storytelling, a dynamic testament to the sheer, invigorating uniqueness of cinema.

This is an all time cinema classic Western. It is a unique western with a different plot. The three stars, Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef, each give magnificent performances. The plot is utterly fascinating, having you wondering until the very end how it will turn out. The scenery is absolutely beautiful when it is not cruel. The movie is filled with varied scenarios, each somehow related to the main plot. This is a must see movie for anyone who has ever watched a motion picture and a grand prize for Clint Eastwood fans.

Leone reaches the level of absolute perfection in this third film of his Dollar Trilogy, a magnificent Spaghetti Western - arguably the best of them all - that features fantastic performances, an unforgettable score and a sublime, breathtaking cinematography.

Completely over-rated. A total waste of time. A horribly callous mentality prevails throughout. Eastwood's character sucks

A classic. One of the best movies made. IMDb gives it 8.9, which is a remarkably high score.

At 3 hours this is one long film, and with some good editing it can be shortened and made better. Great sound track. But it pales by comparison with my all-time favourite, Once Upon a Time in The West, also by Sergio Leone.
