Consensus: With Clint Eastwood in the lead, Ennio Morricone on the score, and Sergio Leone's stylish direction, For a Few Dollars More earns its recognition as a genre classic.

Leone's artful editing of close-ups to communicate the characters' spatial relationships is always a pleasure.

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.

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...

A hard-hitting western with upper-case values out of the busy Italo stable, this is a topnotch action entry.

Here is a gloriously greasy, sweaty, hairy, bloody and violent Western. It is delicious.

Most fans pick The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly as the stand-out, but I really like this one best.

Time Out

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.

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.

Though not as essential as its predecessor, For A Few Dollars more shows Leone's style evolving. Nice addition with Lee Van Cleef as well.

Volonte steals the movie from Eastwood and Lee in many ways.
