About the Movie

A pancho-clad, cigar-chewing, mysterious 'Man with No Name' rides into a small frontier town which is embroiled in a struggle for power between two families. He hires himself out as a mercenary, first to one faction and then to the other, with no regard for honor or morality. He plays both sides against the middle, collecting his money, until he eventually destroys both, leaving the town to the bartender, coffin-maker and bell ringer as he rides off into the desert from whence he came. Based on Akira Kurosawa's 1961 film Yojimbo.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Egregiously synthetic but engrossingly morbid, violent film. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Once in a great while a western comes along that breaks new ground and becomes a classic of the genre. – TIME Magazine, May 23, 2011

Fresh: This is a hard-hitting item, ably directed, splendidly lensed, neatly acted, which has all the ingredients wanted by action fans and then some. – Variety Staff, Variety, May 23, 2011

Fresh: Really little more than a series of loosely connected shoot-outs -- but, as Sergio Leone proved, there can be a lot of fun in that. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jun 24, 2010

Baxters on the left, Rojos on the right, and me in the middle.

This is the beginning of the Man With No Name series, and it's actually a remake of Kurosawa's Yojimbo. Unlike most remakes, this one actually has some worth. The visuals are beautiful, the character of the Man With No Name menacing and mysterious, the score is brilliant and the action is a blast. It's not the masterpiece that The Good, The Bad and the Ugly is, but it's no slouch. Highly recommended.


Buy the classics,rent the new,right on I-tunes,Outlaw Josey Whales please,it will sell like crazy.

The good, the bad, and the ugly

Why won't iTunes put that one on. I mean they have the other two. The final one of the trilogy is a classic.
