As the Civil War rages on, three disparate men—a silent, cigar chomping gunslinger with no name, a renegade Mexican bandit, and an evil, mustache-twirling hitman—venture out across the American Southwest in search of 200,000 dollars in Confederate gold hidden in an unmarked grave. Masterfully directed and scored by Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone.

The Man With No Name trilogy isn't a trilogy that is my cup of tea, but The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly does stand out thanks to that iconic score from Ennio Morricone and Eli Wallach's chaotically delightful performance as "the ugly", also known as Tuco. If only Gian Maria Volonté was in all three Man With No Name movies instead of Clint Eastwood.

What are critics saying?


Variety by

A curious amalgam of the visually striking, the dramatically feeble and the offensively sadistic.


Chicago Reader by Dave Kehr

Though ordained from the beginning, the three-way showdown that climaxes the film is tense and thoroughly astonishing.


Village Voice by Michael Atkinson

All told, and in giant widescreen, it's only blood-red adolescent fun, but it blooms like Douglas Sirk with a Gatling gun compared to the teenage demographic's current fare. Matrix, schmatrix: This is the season's supreme party movie.


Chicago Tribune by Michael Wilmington

An improbable masterpiece -- a bizarre mixture of grandly operatic visuals, grim brutality and sordid violence that keeps wrenching you from one extreme to the other.


Seattle Post-Intelligencer by Sean Axmaker

There are two kinds of people, my friend. Those who love Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and those who resist the machismo and gallows humor of what is arguably the definitive spaghetti western.
