Fantastic Sergio Leoni's Spaghetti Western film (even if the beginning does tend to go on a bit). Fonda excells in his bad guy role as Frank and certainly has you glued to the screen whenever he is present, whilst the rest of the actors failed to hit the spot and opt for the beauty presence look of the film. I would give it 5 stars, but feel that Sergio's earlier work on 'Dollars' was much more rewarding.

My reason for 3 stars is that, sadly, Amazon have failed to offer any kind of support to Google's Chromecast. This will be my last digital film purchase until Amazon recognises that they have a sense of duty to provide a service to a majority of chromecast users, rather than it's slow, but fledging partner, Apple TV.

For me, this epitomises everything that makes watching a film worth while. A cracking story, fantastic acting, an enigmatic hero, vicious baddy, feisty heroine, amazing sets, costumes, dialogue - masses of tension and some unforgettable music. At two hours and forty minutes, it's a long film, but apparently the script only has a total of 15 pages of dialogue. This, and other interesting background facts to the making of the film, is on the second CD. I was impressed by the emphasis Sergio Leone put on making the sets authentic, the way he deliberately racked up the tension, with incredible close-ups and wonderful landscape shots. But for me it's the music that is the most unforgettable part of the film - each of the four main protagonists has their own "theme music", and four days after watching the film, it's still playing in my head.

All that and Charles Bronson and Jason Robards too - wow!

One of Sergio Leone's greatest films. Only the Good the Bad and the Ugly comes close. A masterpiece! You will not see Henry Fonda in a role like this in any other film. Critics described it as one of the greatest films ever made and I can understand why. Everything from Ennio Morricone's epic soundtrack to the acting is sublime.

I'm not going to say much about this film, other reviewers seem to have said just about all there is to say.
I will just say that for me this is the perfect western. The story is not exactly original, but the way it plays out, the acting, the direction, the music, the cinematography, all are perfect.
The cast are superb - particularly Fonda, who is a revelation as the bad guy.
If you only ever watch one western, make it this one.
