For a Few Dollars More

"When two hunters go after the same prey, they usually end up shooting each other in the back. And we don't want to shoot each other in the back."   - Colonel Mortimer

release year: 1965
genre: western
viewing setting: home Bluray 3/12/15 and home DVD, 10/14/09 and 11/2/06 and 1/1/02

synopsis: Two bounty hunters are after the same scoundrel.

impressions: This is double the fun of A Fistful of Dollars, with two protagonists, each one an outstanding shot and a likeable antihero. They're after the same bandit - one for money, the other for revenge. They finally team up about an hour into the film and then the movie gets really good.

things to watch for: Clint and Lee van Cleef's competition of shooting prowess.

acting: Clint Eastwood does the exact same thing here as in the first movie. Lee van Cleef may actually be MORE of a badass. It's macho western heaven.

final word: Good western.
