Completely over-rated. A total waste of time. A horribly callous mentality prevails throughout. Eastwood's character sucks

A classic. One of the best movies made. IMDb gives it 8.9, which is a remarkably high score.

The greatest movie ever made, bar none. Forget Citizen Kane. Forget Casablanca. THIS is the standard by which all others are judged. This type of cinematic perfection has yet to be reproduced anywhere since and probably never will. From Clint's steely eyed stare, to Tuco's wild feral look, to Angel Eyes' cold cruel demeanor, this movie presents a believably effective character study of 3 very different personalities all vying for the same goal: a fortune in military cash. One of them will do everything to get it, one of them will do anything to get it, and the third will do anything to get it first and keep the other two from succeeding. Brilliant cinematography, acting (especially from the late great Eli Wallach) directing (from the equally late and great Sergio Leone) along with an unforgettable soundtrack (by the brilliant musical prodigy Ennio Morricone) and remarkable set pieces combine to create an epic of timeless proportions. The movie even looks incredible despite being filmed in the late 60's!
If you love movies, if you appreciate a good story along with nail biting action, you cannot go through life without seeing this one.
THE GOOD: Everything.
THE BAD: Nothing.
THE UGLY: The bad and the ugly have passed. God rest their souls.

I remember watching this movie as a young kid at the drive-ins with my parents & siblings. We didn't really care about the movie since it was just about a bunch of cowboys shooting at each other & I really didn't care for western movies much, but this one is a classic & it was good not the best but good to watch at least once

Awesome movie, with the best soundtrack I've ever heard. Fantastic final scene.

The quintessential Spaghetti Western from the master, Sergio Leone. His stylized vision singularly and effectively revitalized the genre. This is one rare example where the third film in a 'threequel' surpasses the first two. From his dramatic closeups, to the unmistakeable score from maestro Ennio Morricone, to the cast... Hawk-nosed Lee Van Cleef as 'Angel Eyes' was one nasty looking dude. Clint's ('Blondie'? His hair was brown...) career exploded immediately after AND because of this flick. And you can't disregard Eli Wallach's slimy, sniveling 'Tuco' for comic relief. (It took tremendous b*lls on his part to pull off the train/handcuff removal scene.) A monumental film. Don't forget the meatballs and chianti with that spaghetti. FIVE STARS.

Must See - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) 166 min. Probably THE best western ever made. This Sergio Leono masterpiece is the 3rd of 5 "spaghetti westerns" directed by Leone. The film follows A Fist Full of Dollars (1964) and For a Few Dollars More (1965). Then followed by Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) and A Fist Full of Dynamite (1971). The chemistry between the cast including Clint Eastwood (the good), Lee Van Cleef (the bad) and Eli Wallach (the ugly) is perfect. Eli Wallach's great line "When you have to shoot - shoot, don't talk" is in this one. The score by Ennio Morricone is incredible. Borrow this one; it's a "must see".
