Two gunmen team up to catch an outlaw.

"...Leone's second western and a much more sure affair...another near faultless release from MGM.  Andy McKeague, DVD Monsters & Critics
"...purely enjoyable; an exercise in narrative filmmaking which brims with style and confidence.  Mike Sutton, DVD Times
"A hard-hitting western with upper-case values out of the busy Italo stable, this is a topnotch action entry.  Variety

Editor's Note
In the second film in Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Western trilogy (A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS being the first and THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY the last), the Man with No Name (Clint Eastwood) teams up with gunslinger Colonel Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef) in order to extract reward money from Indio (Gian Maria Volonte), a mean and vicious bandit. There is little doubt as to No Name's financial intentions in the hunt, but Mortimer seems to be driven by something a bit deeper. A series of flashbacks (which would become a Leone signature device) provides the background for Colonel Mortimer's anger and desire for revenge. Morricone's score combined with Leone's trademark long and lingering shots bring the viewer ever closer to the human side of the Man with No Name. Although the film was not released in the United States until 1967, it was produced and released internationally in 1965.

"[The film] displays greater assurance than FISTFUL, with a more ambitious narrative structure and a strain of self-parodic humour." 06/01/2005 p.83

FilmsGraded.com 8 of 10
"A Fistful of Dollars was the first film [in the series by Leone], a Western remake of Akiro Kurosawa's Yojimbo. While it was a good film, it was a low budget film with a comparatively weak supporting cast...The trademarks of Leone's style were more apparent in the superior sequel, For a Few Dollars More. Confrontations were drawn out, to prolong tension. Flashbacks were used to show past relationships between the protagonists. Partnerships are necessary but treacherous. Advantages are fleeting. The characters are given better motivation for their actions...Unlike in his other films with Leone, Eastwood does not perform any selfless deeds in For a Few Dollars More. He doesn't rescue a wife from sexual slavery, as in A Fistful of Dollars, or blow up a blood-soaked bridge to fulfill a dying man's last request, as in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Only his style, and his murderous and mercenary characteristics remain." - Brian Koller

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
"Here is a gloriously greasy, sweaty, hairy, bloody and violent Western. It is delicious...""For a Few Dollars More,"" like all of the grand and corny Westerns Hollywood used to make, is composed of situations and not plots. Plots were dangerous because if a kid went out to get some popcorn he might miss something...Clint Eastwood, as The Man With No Name, is formidable: He chews and spits out dozens of cigars...Lee Van Cleef, as Col. Mortimer, looks like an infinitely weary Clark Gable. He carries an arsenal with him. After a memorable duel in which they shoot each other's hats to pieces, Eastwood and Van Cleef join up to collect the reward for the desperado Indio (Gian Maria Volonte)...The rest of the film is one great old Western cliche after another. They aren't done well, but they're over-done well, and every situation is drawn out so that you can savor it." - Roger Ebert
