The film that has jumped the most on my chart. It's nearly flawless. The Mexican standoff at the end always gets my heart pumping no matter how many times I've seen the film; that's the sign of fantastic film making. Did I mention it has one of the greatest themes in history? *Whistles*

Why is this a foreign language film? It is not a foreign language film.

Yeah, it's not a foreign language film, but it's an Italian production, so I guess they messed up there. Still an international production anyways.

I am not at all a western genre fan, but even I loved every moment of it. On of my favorite movie of all time. The characters, the acting, the direction by Sergio Leone, the AWESOME background music and of course the badass Mexican Stand-off I loved everything.

There are two types of people in this world. Those who think that The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a masterpiece and those who haven't seen it.

Simply Sergio Leone masterpiece. You do not really have to be a western fan to appreciate this film. Awesome cinematography and realistic portray of the raw nature of the wild west. Brilliant musical score. The duel is truly iconic. It was very difficult for me and still is to put this first before Once Upon A Time In the West. Both awesome classics.

I wish I could go back in time, so I could experience the last 30 minutes of The Good the Bad and the Ugly again for the first time.

The final scene in the Sad Hill Cemetery is a riveting spectacle, made so by some brilliantly tight editing and underscored by the genius of Ennio Morricone's genre-defining composition.

The greatest western ever made. Excellent performances from the entire cast with Eli Wallach (if that's how you spell his name) being the obvious standout. The editing and direction are excellent. The characters are all complex and morally grey and the script is intelligent and doesn't spoonfeed the audience information. The standoff at Sad Hill is the shit movies are made of. 10/10

Great film, but I do think it is a tad overrated. Mostly because of all the war scenes and the scenes in the prison camp, but other than that I think it’s fantastic!

Ok, I’m tired of seeing people saying this is the best western of all time. I’ve seen it 5 times and although most of it is great it has not aged well at all! All those scenes where there is a freeze frame and text saying the good the bad etc. are so offensively repugnant compared to the rest of the movie that it boggles my mind that such a great director like Sergio Leone would make such a retarded decision on making the movie! And the ending is awful as well, the final stand off is outstanding but once blonde makes Tuco put his head in the noose it all goes downhill. It just leaves me with a sour taste in my mouth, it’s a shame that these things ruin the movie for me because I think the rest of it is great.
