True masterpiece by Sergio Leone. The 4-hour version is one of the greatest films ever made. A sprawling,film epic in the same league as The Godfather. A haunting,beautiful score by Ennio Morricone, and outstanding performances.

A dumb movie that substitutes interesting ideas for characters fucking. It also has a deeply, deeply upsetting double standard when it comes to rape; deeming it sickly in one scene and quirky/humorous in the next.

Masterful work by Leone, my expectations were rather low going in but I was blown away by it.

A good not great movie. Too much fat was left untrimmed. Robert De Niro is great, but the score is so very repetitive.
