Ok well lets start by saying I won't be reviewing the films here or getting bogged down in the is it even a triolgy debate. Others have been doing this over the last 44 years so im sure you have read it all before.

There have been a few mixed reviews on other sites so let me throw in my hat in the ring pardner and see if its any good...

All three films are presented in full 1080p 24fps and appear to be the same extended versions that appeared in the last re-release of the 3 films on DVD in 2005.

Running Times
A Fistful Of Dollars (1964) Runtime 99 minutes
For A Few Dollars More (1965) Runtime 132 minutes
The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (1966) Runtime 179 minutes

In terms of picture quality all three films show some wear with occasional artefacts (white speck holes in the film) but a lot of tidying up has been done on all three. Making a direct comparison to the previous release on DVD of the 3 films, this is the best these films have ever looked and by some distance. The usual vibrant colours associated with the blu ray format are not so obvious but this is not a bad thing. The overall feel is a slightly drab colour pallet and an age to the images which is appropriate for films as they spend so much time with white adobe building sets and faded costumes worn on the dusty trails, but the magic of blu ray is apparent throughout. The close up work that Leone made as his own trademark is wonderful. The scarring on the heavy set faces are a rogues gallery of glorious characters that fill all 3 movies.

The Audio on all 3 films is remastered in English 5:1 DTS-HD. Although im sure many folks are aware of the dubbing issues in all three films.

I've read through all of the other reviews and the one thing that hasn't been mentioned is the price. I paid less than the price of a pizza for 3 of the most influential westerns that now have been released in Blue-Ray (BR) format. OK the films aren't as well restored as other old films(James Bond/Wizard of Oz/Star Trek) but to be honest you really do have to go out of your way in which to find fault with these BR releases. Lets not forgot these films are around 45 years old and were budget films then. Yet on my TV they look great. Now I'm a little discerning when it comes to films which helps explain why I have given away a number of Blue rays which I didn't like. Yet and a big yet these 3 films will be staying with me. Other people have explained the technical bits better than I ever could, which is why I haven't bothered boring folks waffling about this, that and the other. If you like Clint Eastwood and have a spare £10 then you can't go far wrong with this collection.

For those who really want to buy this but are afraid of Madame Tussauds being involved in the mastering of these discs - heres the details.
A fistful of dollars - grain fully intact, excellent picture quality.
For a few dollars more - again, grain fully intact and excellent picture quality.
The good, the bad and the ugly - not good news. This one looks very smooth. I dont know how bad it will look on a big screen as I only have a 37" but theres hardly any grain visable at all! It still looks a lot better than the DVD (same restored version) but it should do anyway!

Leone's spaghetti western trilogy has been released in various forms-video/DVD/ & I am sure in the 1970s they were available on cinefilm, all for home use, when I first saw them (again in the seventies), as an impressionable nine or ten year old, their music , images and Eastwood being in them, changed my idea of what westerns were-uptil then I had only seen John Wayne westerns, which even then were a different generations movies. I think (although can't be certain) that i saw them in order, and was sold on Westerns -with Eastwood and Sergio Leone movies.
These are certainly the best I have ever seen, having owned the previous DVD versions, colours appear little better-& as others have stated these are Old pictures-over forty years, shot cheaply and in techniscope.
The trilogy has Eastwood in what was to be a career defining role-insolent, single minded and ruthless humorous , even if Leone "borrowed" the storyline of "Fistful" from Akira kurasawa's Yojimbo.
A few dollars more has Eastwood and Lee van cleef team up to get the gang whom murdered van cleef's sister.
TgTbAtU has three leads Eastwood returning in his signature role, van cleef returning (as the baddie), and eli wallach as Tuco, often the butt of Eastwood's humour, also dishing a lot of his own humour.
The trilogy has rightfully gained its place not just in Western history, but movie history, the recent Django unchained (Tarantino) is massively influenced by it-although DU doesn't have the miniscule budgets Leone had to contend with.
I also got the 2010 set-as I have read that the more recent tgtbtu re-release has apparently got a "teal" effect on them, which I don't recall after numerous viewings on different mediums.
If you can get for a tenner they a real bargain...
