For a Few Dollars More (Per Qualche Dollaro in Più)
This pulse-pounding follow-up to Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars brings back Clint Eastwood as the serape-clad, cigar-chewing "Man With No Name." Engaged in an ongoing battle with bounty hunter Col. Douglas Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef), the Man joins forces with his enemy to capture homicidal bandit Indio (Gian Maria Volontè). Both the Eastwood and Van Cleef characters are given understandable motivations for their bloodletting tendencies, something that was lacking in A Fistful of Dollars.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Leone's artful editing of close-ups to communicate the characters' spatial relationships is always a pleasure."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"The fact that this film is constructed to endorse the exercise of murderers, to emphasize killer bravado and generate glee in frantic manifestations of death is, to my mind, a sharp indictment of it as so-called entertainment in this day."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Doesn't have the narrative strength of the first in the trilogy but individual scenes are still brilliant and each ingredient in just perfect, cast, score, tone..."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"More violence and Clint-itude in Italian Western."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Looser and more relaxed as well as more elaborate than Fistful, the film is best appreciated as a series of outrageous set-pieces."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"A hard-hitting western with upper-case values out of the busy Italo stable, this is a topnotch action entry."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Here is a gloriously greasy, sweaty, hairy, bloody and violent Western. It is delicious."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Most fans pick The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly as the stand-out, but I really like this one best."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"The parodical outline of Fistful of Dollars gains flesh and curves"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, Slant Magazine
"The amoral film should give the less hardy pause as to its relevance or worth or endorsement for vigilante justice."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A significant step forward from A Fistful of Dollars, with the usual terrific compositions, Morricone score, and taciturn performances, not to mention the ubiquitous flashback disease."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Lean, mean, atmospheric and blackly comic spaghetti western by the team who all but invented the genre, well deserving of its reputation as one of the era's very best."
‑ , Film4
"A tremendously good sequel, on top of being a tremendously good movie in and of itself - surely the best Italian Western at the time of its release."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"He indulges in a certain sexually-charged imagery lifted straight from film noir"
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"Every scene crackles with energy."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
