  • Sergio Leone's first spaghetti Western is now a deserved classic of the genre it invented. And it's got Clint. What more could you want? Full Review

  • Egregiously synthetic but engrossingly morbid, violent film. Full Review

  • Once in a great while a western comes along that breaks new ground and becomes a classic of the genre. Full Review

  • This is a hard-hitting item, ably directed, splendidly lensed, neatly acted, which has all the ingredients wanted by action fans and then some. Full Review
