Set during the Civil War, three disparate drifters... (the poncho-clad, cigar-chewing, silent but supremely confident "Man With No Name"--The Good; the evil bounty hunter--The Bad; and a renegade Mexican bandit--The Ugly)... search for a Confederate cash box containing $200,000, which is hidden in a distant cemetery in an unmarked grave. Their journey will carry them through the ferocity of the Civil War landscape. Sometimes they masquerade as Confederates, and others as Yankees. When they arrive at the cemetery and find the treasure is when the REAL violence begins...

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Sergio Leone's epic looks good, almost great, restored to its original running time.
Fresh: All told, and in giant widescreen, it's only blood-red adolescent fun, but it blooms like Douglas Sirk with a Gatling gun compared to the teenage demographic's current fare.
Fresh: An improbable masterpiece -- a bizarre mixture of grandly operatic visuals, grim brutality and sordid violence that keeps wrenching you from one extreme to the other.
Fresh: The uncut new print reclaims the widescreen majesty of Tonino Delli Colli's cinematography, allowing you to see every iconic wart and furrow on every bad guy's face.
Great movie, really want to buy in HD!!!
Why can't we buy this?
The title says it all. One of cinema's greatest achievments.
I was sold after three minutes
Wow, I have really been missing out. The one word that was constantly popping in my head as I watched this: epic. There is no other adjective that can better describe this masterpiece. I was surprised how this held my interest as I'm not really the biggest fan of westerns, but it did it, and I can now safely say: this is one of the greatest films ever made. From the opening titles, to the final showdown, this is a hands-down masterpiece, 5/5, see this immediately.
