In the 1964 film, director Sergio Leone delighted movie goers with the film A Fistful of Dollars. Clint Eastwood’s gruff gun-slinger character was a man of few words but a lot of action. In the sequel, For A Few Dollars More blu-ray, Eastwood’s character is given a lot more depth, and even some humor. The For A Few Dollars More script is impressive when compared with its predecessor. It even has elements of comedy in it. Although a few of the bad guys from the previous film were all dead by the end of it, they all back in the For A Few Dollars More blu-ray with new names! This film has brilliant performances from both Lee Van Cleef and Clint Eastwood, which enhance its style.
For A Few Dollars More blu-ray is one of the best and most spectacular of Leone’s westerns. The main reason for this is the once in a lifetime performances given by both Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef. In the film they are both top class bounty hunters who are chasing the same contract. The two call an uneasy truce, and then set about using every trick in the book to double-cross and get one up on each other. What follows is a relentless barrage of bravado, marksmanship and stern-faced masculinity, with corrupt hired hands willing to exchange bullets around every other corner.
The director’s dust-soaked images, are filled with personality and atmosphere, which results in a tougher, bolder and more genuine looking western than many of the bigger more expensive Hollywood blockbusters of today. The infamous showdown between Eastwood, Van Cleef and the despicable set of bounties, may be what sends this movie riding off into the sunset. But it’s the quieter scenes earlier in the story that really makes For A Few Dollars More blu-ray really worth watching. The sight of the two grizzled old bounty hunters trying to impress one another, with nothing but an empty road, a set of pistols and a pair of bullet-riddled hats, leaves a striking impression on the viewer.
