Sergio Leone saves the best for last, and makes this the greatest installment of the trilogy.

A simple morality play takes place on the grandest of scales in Sergio Leone's greatest Western. The film's characters are each their own intriguing persona and the ensuing power struggle makes for some of the greatest scenes of the genre. Add to this Leone's beautiful panoramic photography and the film's iconic score and this is a true Western classic.

Our Daily Free Stream: Sergio Leone - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. Eine gewaltige Leere, so eröffnet sich die Landschaft vor uns. Ganz langsam kreist die Kamera, hält schliesslich inne auf einem sonnenverbrannten, verzweifelten Gesicht. Aus dem langen Shot wird ein Close-Up ohne Schnitt. Die Landschaft war nicht gänzlich verlassen, sondern besetzt durch einen Desperado. Mit dieser ersten Szene eröffnet uns Sergio Leone seine Technik und die wird er beibehalten: Unser Blick ist begrenzt durch den Bildrand. Was ausserhalb geschieht; wir wissen es nicht. Die grössten Momente in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly funktionieren so: Wir sehen es nicht, die Protagonisten auch nicht. Wir alle werden überrascht! Ob das, was geschieht, plausbel ist, kümmert Leone nicht. Er baut sein …

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is my favorite Western of all time. It has so much to love, that you forget there was a world based on laws. It's just thrilling scene by thrilling scene, and is always a pleasure to watch.
The acting is fantastic. Eli Wallach displays an almost tongue-in-cheek humor as the vicious, pitiless bandit Tuco. Blondie! I kill you!
Clint Eastwood continues his charade as the Man with no name, and he's fine with me. As a cowboy, he passes it off very well.
The characters interact very cleverly with one another. It seems like there is an electric static in the air whenever Tuco and Angel Eyes talk, or they are on the verge of shooting. Just looking at each other, these actors are scary. That is how you build suspense and mysterious characters. Great dialogue …

Brilliant, brutal, exciting, haunting. These are a few words that describe Sergio Leone's 1966 masterpiece. This film is without a doubt, unquestionably, and undeniably one of the finest achievements by a director in the history of not only the western genre, but all cinema as well. Characterized by it's long takes, gorgeous landscapes, interesting characters and faces, a brilliant score by ennio morricone, and an unforgettable performance from the great Eli Wallach (The Ugly). The good, the bad, and the ugly is perhaps one of the greatest final installments to a trilogy in the history of trilogies. The Cemetery scene alone will have you in tears out of just pure brilliance and style. The ending will have you angry! Excited! Exhilarated! All at the same time! At 2 hours and 58 minutes …
