For a Few Dollars More

( 10 )

Overview

This pulse-pounding follow-up to Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars brings back Clint Eastwood as the serape-clad, cigar-chewing "Man With No Name." Engaged in an ongoing battle with bounty hunter Col. Douglas Mortimer Lee Van Cleef, the Man joins forces with his enemy to capture homicidal bandit Indio Gian Maria Volontè. Both the Eastwood and Van Cleef characters are given understandable motivations for their bloodletting tendencies, something that was lacking in A Fistful of Dollars. In both films, however, ...

Overview

This pulse-pounding follow-up to Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars brings back Clint Eastwood as the serape-clad, cigar-chewing "Man With No Name." Engaged in an ongoing battle with bounty hunter Col. Douglas Mortimer Lee Van Cleef, the Man joins forces with his enemy to capture homicidal bandit Indio Gian Maria Volontè. Both the Eastwood and Van Cleef characters are given understandable motivations for their bloodletting tendencies, something that was lacking in A Fistful of Dollars. In both films, however, the violence is raw and uninhibited -- and in many ways, curiously poetic. Leone's tense, tight close-ups, pregnant pauses, and significant silences have since been absorbed into the standard spaghetti Western lexicon; likewise, Ennio Morricone's haunting musical score has been endlessly imitated and parodied. For a Few Dollars More was originally titled Per Qualche Dollaro in Più; it would be followed by the last and best of the Man with No Name trilogy, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Produced between 1964 and 1966, the films in director Sergio Leone's Man with No Name trilogy -- A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly -- were not released in America until 1967. The rapid succession of releases belied Leone's significant growth between each installment. Though A Fistful of Dollars was skillful and original, the production values were notoriously cheap and the characters were not fully realized. For a Few Dollars More improves on just about every aspect of the previous film, honing the mythic quality of the players. Leone elevates his style to another level; his operatic vision is in full flower here. Though clearly performing in the same minimalist style, Clint Eastwood significantly masters the subtleties of his gritty, nihilistic character. Watch for famed German actor Klaus Kinski as the hunchback who has a match struck on his neck by Lee Van Cleef.

    Among the greatest Westerns ever.

    If you think the west was a little less wholesome and a lot more rough, you’ll love this western movie. Sergio Leone’s western trilogy dramatically changed western movies forever. This second installment comes close to equaling “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.” In fact the casting is even a bit better with the addition of Gian Maria Volonte’s portrayal of an insane bank robber. The score by Ennio Morricone was simply brilliant, it gave the movie a very appropriate eerie feel. If you’ve ever thought cowboys should talk less and shoot more you’ll be right at home with this movie.

    My favorite western

    This is by far the best one in the trilogy. Its a shame is is so underrated. This movie seems to have more shooting than The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, and is not as slow-paced. This movie is about bounty hunters, bandits, reward, and revenge. Clint Eastwood plays a bounty hunter by the name of Manco. Lee Van Cleef plays a tough, hard-noosed former Confederate Army turned bounty hunter named Colonel Douglas Mortimer. Both men are on the trail of El Indio, a brutal, blood- thirsty bandit, and murderer. The only problem is that El Indio has numerous outlaws assisting him, and there is a $10,000 reward for the capture of El Indio, dead or alive. Their solution to team up as partners and split the reward. Manco's reasons for capturing El Indio are quite simple, to collect the reward. Mortimer's reasons are more personal, to kill El Indio out of revenge for the rape and murder of his sister. This movie is a must-have for any Eastwood fan.

    Coming into this film with high expectations after watching A Fistful of Dollars, I was gravely disappointed in For A Few Dollars More. It seemed the film was trying too hard to copy the feel and the look of the previous film with the same formula. Apparently, the result was a painfully slow film. Distorted parts. Weak characters. Lack of a good story. No intelligence. I often had to wonder about those shooting at clothes and leaving those clothes without holes in them, especially that bedroom scene when the guy got all shot up and looks like nothing had entered his body. I didn't like this Colonel character and thought it was useless to bring him in to assist Eastwood. It is obvious that this should be about Eastwood, the one and the only. It doesn't matter anymore. In the end, the film was a disappointment.

    Essential Western.

    If your into westerns and dvd you will love it. The 2nd of the 3 Eastwood Italian made ''spaghetti'' anti-hero westerns and in my opinion the most fun as Good, Bad, and the Ugly is a bit long (although also essential). Awesome music by Morricone of course.
