Review If, in A Fistful of Dollars and For A Few Dollars More, we see a relatively inexperienced director searching for his style and gradually finding it, A Fistful of Dynamite is the work of a great director with all the style in the world who is struggling to find his film. There are wonderful things in this, Sergio Leone's fifth Western, but it's not all of a piece - actually, it's often a bit of a mess. But it's often a beautiful and inspiring mess that overflows with a love of pure cinema...Leone seems to have aimed for an even more epic sweep than he achieved in Once Upon A Time In The West. There are scenes in A Fistful of Dynamite which are extraordinary in their visual scope...A Fistful of Dynamite is a film which many feel suffers from comparisons to Leone's best work. Personally, I feel its less coherent and achieved than Once Upon A Time In The West, for example, but it's perhaps emotionally richer and more revealing of its director's personality.
