The Good, the Bad and the Ugly [1966] ★★★★

“You see, in this world there’s two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig”.

Sergio Leone’s spaghetti trilogy comes to an end with style. Clint Eastwood leads the hunt for a buried treasure in this superior western movie about greed and…well gun battles. But it all comes down to one unforgettable showdown in the middle of nowhere. Eastwood has never been better, but it’s Eli Wallach who steals the show as tuco (aka the ugly). One of the all time greats!

Rating: 4/4

  1. As for classic westerns I prefer ‘High Noon’, but I find spaghetti westerns more entertaining; this one and ‘Once Upon a Time in the West’ are my favorite.
