Goofs

Mortimer smokes a meerschaum pipe throughout the movie, which is historically accurate; however, the pipe stem is obviously Lucite, a late 20th century plastic. An 1860's pipe stem would be carved of ivory, antler, or bone. See more »

The Man with no Name is BACK!
27 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

****Excellent

***Good

**Fair

*Poor

My teacher once said that when you're starting your career it's great to imitate someone just as practice or to gain experience because if you can be as good as them you could be better! And that's exactly what happened to Sergio Leone.

After the success of A Fistful of Dollars a sequel was underway and that gave Leone and Eastwood the opportunity to make this character into there own. Here Eastwood is a bounty hunter not a simple gunfighter like in the original. He teams up with another bounty hunter played by Lee Van Cleef who both are after Indio for two different reasons.

In this film Leone emerges as an artist. When this film was released times were changing. The new and old generation were in a battle. The vietnam war had just begun and hippies were taking over the country. By pairing the characters of Eastwood and Van Cleef there was bound to be conflicts.

"They usually end up shooting themselves in the back."

From their partnership they understood and learned from each other. Meaning there is something new to be learned from each generation.

RATING: 4 STARS
