The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly ★★★★★

Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is one of the best Spaghetti Westerns ever made. It is the last in a trilogy of films directed by Leone that catapulted Clint Eastwood into the stratosphere. This movie is chock full of iconic moments and contains some of the most breathtaking panoramic shots of landscapes ever filmed. The legendary score by Ennio Marricone perfectly complements the storyline and is astonishingly synched with many of the films climactic moments, especially the standoff in the end. I loved the three lead stars. Eastwood as the Good and Lee Van Cleef as the Bad are excellent. However, my favorite character is the Ugly, played by Eli Wallach who is perfectly cast as the hilarious Tuco. Overall, this is a great film that I really liked seeing on the big screen.
