"a fistful of dynamite" is an overlooked minor classic that has plenty going for it; good acting from rod steiger and james coburn, especially steiger; plenty of gunfights, more great music and a dose of humour now and again. the plot is sometimes difficult to follow, but that doesn't really matter.
it is interesting that the film is based circa 1913 when the old west was just about over. seeing primitive motorcars alongside horses is rather a strange sight to behold.
this isn't called a "special edition" for nothing. the film has finally been restored to its full length of 150 minutes. the original big box video edition from 1982, had the running time of 132 minutes. then in 2003, a d.v.d edition was released that ran for 147 minutes. it's all rather confusing as the film was released in cinemas around the world under different titles with various editing having been done.now, the film is all the better for its proper running time.
there's a short but informative documentary on the making of the film but also an interesting featurette about the different versions that were shown on the original release.
i suppose there is a note of disappointment that "a fistful of dynamite" marked one of the last, or possibly the last spaghetti western directed by the late, great sergio leone. a brilliant way to finish.
James Coburn and Rod Steiger provide great onscreen characters whos personalities and backgrounds are beautifully explored in detail set in the backdrop of the Mexican revolution and in particular Coburn's character is explored deeply, enhanced by Leone's supurb use of flashbacks to tell us his story!
With enhanced picture and sound, which is fantastic with explosions abound, this DVD as with Leone's other westerns are worth their weight in gold!
Another great score by Morricone as usual, tops the film off as fantastic!!!
Highly recommended to Spaghetti western and Leone fans!!!
My player is UK Region B locked, but this Blu-ray of 'Duck, You Sucker' plays on it without any problems.
Fistful Of Dollars bacause of the stirring soundtrack and opening sequence, strong use of colours, cast and non-stop excitment from beginning to middle to end (plus heaps more!)
For A Few Dollars More incorperates all of these things and yet is extremly atmospheric in all it's scenes in a way that differs from it's predeccesor in a way hard to explain but is very apparent; noteable, to me in a majority for it's set design.
Once Upon A Time In The West has four superb performancs from each of it's main pro/antagonists and is notorious for it's slow paced run time that holds the viewer through out, therefore the viewer endures the movie along with the characters. It also has a beautiful and moving score.
A Fistful Of Dynamite (or Duck You Sucker or Once Upon A Time...The Revolution-it's most fitting title) is by far the most quirky, innovative, political and is very extrovertly idiosyncratic.
The performances by the two main leads are fantastic, sympathy switching from one to the other as you learn more about their characters (The DVD "origional" version helps with this, and the story) and there are definitly some controversial touches throughout.
Rife with comedy, pathos and action and quite a bit different to the Dollars, foremost because of the time it is set: 1913 (even a primitive motorbike turns up) so no tumbleweed settings and lonley terraced sallon border-towns with ten-pace shoot outs.
But definitly explosive and realistic with a great sense of fantasy as a foyle for the realism.
I could write for ages about Leone's movies and have a lot more to say about this one.Read more ›
