A Fistful of DollarsHD Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this 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.
Fresh: Once in a great while a western comes along that breaks new ground and becomes a classic of the genre.
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.
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.

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.
