THE MAN WITH NO NAME RETURNS...,
This review is from: For A Few Dollars More (Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
This is the second outing for the Man with No Man, and sterling performances are turned in by both Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef.
Van Cleef plays Colnel Mortimer, a man with a troubled past and obvious motives for revenge, which are told through flashbacks.
Equally troubled and disturbed, is the vicious bandit Indio who somehow is involved with Mortimer's past.
It's a tale of retribution, revenge and of two men working together to achieve a common goal. While Clint is merely in it for the money, Mortimer has other reasons.
Gian Maria Volante also puts in a brilliant performance as the obviously unhinged Indio, and there are decent action scenes, most noteworthy Idio's escape from Prison, though he would obviously be better off in the nut house!
Lee Van Cleef also teaches Clint the finer points of rifle shooting, and the two test each other with their guns is a memorable scene as well.
Not forgetting of course, Ennino Morricone's brilliant score, which all adds to the tension and atmosphere of what easily betters its prequal, Fistful of Dollars.
Definitely worth buying!
