Hide Spoilers. A Fistful of Dollars in my opinion is the second best one in the spaghetti western series, that is Sergio Leone's first best masterpiece in "Dollars Trilogy", that started all.
It is my personal favorite western movie of all time. I love this movie to death and I will always cherish it. This was the third Clint Eastwood's western film that I saw as a kid and I loved it every since.
What can I say? Except I love this movie and it is my second favorite Clint Eastwood western movie. This one is in my top 5 Eastwood western films.
I just love this movie to death and I love the story and the actors that it is in this film. This movie is shorter for only an hour and 39 minutes long, which is not boring, it is fast paced and it is filled with classic moments.
A Fistful of Dollars is a classic and I can always watch and enjoy it, without been bored. The story is an unofficial reworking of the Akira Kurosawa film Yojimbo from What I love about this film is Clint Eastwood's character who helps out a young family, who is torn apart from the Rojo's gang, he make sure that the kid goes in to his mom's arms, Eastwood was a heart in this movie.
The plot start's faster and it is a stone cold classic that started all. Clint Eastwood is the coolest actor in the role playing the famous character of all time, that made him an icon.
Every second on screen, he chews up the scenery and even today remains as bad ass as ever. Eastwood's character has been mimicked and copied numerous times over the years and yet he still stands up to modern scrutiny.
Despite the character being so cool, there is still humor to be found, like the fact that he ALWAYS has that cigar in his mouth even when he's lying in bed.
You also have the classic "Mule" scene which manages to be bad ass and funny at the same time. Sergio Leone directs everything to perfection and considering the film is from , it's extremely well paced with plenty of action.
The score was provided by Ennio Morricone, who for some reason is credited as Dan Savio. The music is another element that has been copied by practically every other Western since.
It set the standard of what a Western could be and once you watch the film, the tune will go through your head for hours. Not only that this movie is a classic but two movies ripped off the story from this film: Bruce Willis's Last Man Standing which completely ripped off the story from this film and Sukiyaki Western Django This is the beginning of the Man With No Name series.
The visuals are beautiful, the character of the Man With No Name menacing and mysterious, the score is brilliant and the action is a blast.
The greatest "spaghetti" western ever. The one that launched a thousand copycat versions, even the wonderful score by Ennio Morricone.
A Fistful of Dollars is a legendary, with bullets, as loud as the explosions and close ups extreme. The plot is simple though not as much as the sequel, A Few Dollars More but that is what enables Sergio to weave a masterpiece.
Iconic score. A Fistful of Dollars gets a perfect 10 by me and remains my all time best favorite Eastwood Western movie in the series that I absolutely love to death and I love Clint Eastwood's character.
It's a genre that doesn't get enough love and it really should as it deals with all the familiar elements of action films, like this one is.
Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Wulfstan10 31 October ALthough in many respects this film pales in comparison with Leone's later films, it is itself a brilliant cinematic achievement.
In part, this is because its failings primarily appear to be due to constraints of budget very small and highly uncertain and time more than anything else.
Even to the extent that the skills of Leone, Morricone, and others hadn't fully flowered yet, this film is incredible at how brilliantly it is handled for what is really a first-time go.
Leone had worked on, and even directed, films before, but this is his first real foray in his own direction, and into a genre that he revolutionised and with which he became forever synonymous.
Who can imagine westerns without at least thinking of Leone's films, while who can think of Leone without thinking of westerns even though his last, and arguably greatest, film was a sort of gangster film?
Similarly, one should not criticize this film for being based on Yojimbo, for that film itself was based on an American story while A Fistful of Dollars really is very different in many key respects, not least of all Leone's visual style or his own sense of irony and symbolism derived from Italian precedents and Hollywood westerns.
We also see the nascent Leone visual style here, with the close-up style and contrast of close-ups and long shots appearing.
This alone sets it apart from previous films, westerns and non-westerns alike, and still provides for great visual treats that one can appreciate today.
This film also ushered in Leone's obsession with details, hard faces, grungy people, etc. This films also marks the first brilliant score of Ennio Morricone.
It is here that he introduced the lonely whistling, guitar music, chorus, and unusual combinations and styles that developed into the music that has become in the U.
Despite its minor flaws, this is still a great film that is not only revolutionary but still great and fun to watch even today.
Like Leone's other films, it is timeless. One must also admit that it is amazing that in the U. That alone reveals the greatness of the films, of which this is the first.
A western classic and the movie that launched the careers of Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood. Infofreak 31 May Despite being made on a much tighter budget and being less ambitious than the sequels to follow, it's still one of the greatest westerns ever made in my opinion.
The second reason is the Yojimbo thing. Now movie buffs frequently slam 'A Fistful Of Dollars' as being a rip off of Kurosawa's 'Yojimbo', which I think is extremely misleading.
Anyway, this is an absolutely brilliant movie and it launched Clint Eastwood, a popular TV actor, into being a major movie star, and likewise put Sergio Leone on the map.
I can't recommend 'A Fistful Of Dollars' highly enough, it's pure entertainment, and very, very cool! Sergio Leone shared a rebellious desire to tumble the old values and present the audience with a new, more mystifying piece of storytelling The violence, the speed of action in his film announced a totally new European style Leone placed the poncho on Eastwood's shoulders to give his character a veil of mystery The cigar acted as a sort of pendant to those ice-cold eyes He creates a quite unique character, with no name, no horse and no money, a cynical bounty hunter whose impassivity is his main attraction, an ultra-cool gunslinger who leaves us impressed by his exceptionally swift draw He is a mysterious 'gunman with green eyes' who comes from nowhere and returns there, a cult hero set against a dry and dead landscape entering a noisy violent world where evil competes with evil He presents his sadistic killers, invariably unshaven, sweating and bleeding in frequent big close-ups Both the real and the unreal invincibility of his 'Stranger' are never better illustrated than in the final scene when the trembling Ramon fills the gunfighter's heart with bullets Leone's very dark brand of humor stands out when Eastwood walks past a coffin-maker: "Gets three coffins ready" he orders The town heavies make fun of him, asking where his old mule is This aspect is completely foreign to the American tradition based on John Ford concepts of honor, bravery and romantic adventure Sergio Leone's film deeply influenced the future of the Western in general and the Italian 'spaghetti' Western in particular Although 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' is considered the best this one comes pretty close.
It is a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 'Yojimbo' and it comes also pretty close to that movie. It was also the first real Spaghetti Western.
Both families hate each other and he thinks he can make a lot of money with playing both parties against each other.
This is basically the main story. There are some sub-plots, one of them involves Marisol Marianne Koch who is taken by a leader of one of the families.
Her husband and child still live in the town. For me it was not the story that made this movie interesting. It was the whole atmosphere.
I like all Leone's westerns for that reason. Of course some are better than others, but they are never boring. The way we see Eastwood kill four man early in the movie is simply spectacular.
The movie that started it all dtucker86 7 October Clint Eastwood was best known to American audiences for his role as Rowdy Yates in the series Rawhide.
The series had ended and he was offered this strange new and challenging role in this movie of the American West that was made in Italy!
Eastwood said his wife read that script and liked it. She said it was really "wild" because it was written in Western "slang" by Italians who really didn't understand English.
He did this picture almost as a lark, and then read that it had become one of the biggest hits in Europe and then when it was released in America it outgrossed even the most popular current American films and made Clint Eastwood both a star and a phenomenon.
Its strange to me that the best films ever made about the American west should have been made by Sergio Leone, an Italian who couldn't even speak English.
Clint Eastwood said that all he knew in Italian was "arrevadershi" and all Leone knew in English was "goodbye" and yet these two combined to make an awesome film.
As the poncho clad "Man With No Name", Eastwood created a role that hit us like a punch in the face and really re-defined the definition of the true Western hero.
Eastwood tore out pages and pages of the dialogue and reduced his character to the bare bones to make him more mysterious. Leone said that he clad Eastwood in that sweat stained serepe to give him a cloak of mystery and put the cheroot in his mouth as a pendant between his two cold eyes and it worked like a charm.
He broke all the rules and re-defined screen violence. I read that Leone wanted to make a blood and guts Western and show to the audience "I want them to feel what the hell it is like to get shot" and he does it!
The scene where Clint is beaten to a pulp is one of the most graphic that you will ever see. It would have killed most other men!
I think people are missing the point of this film when they focus on the action sequence. The underlying theme of the entire movie is one of self sacrifice for what is right and just.
It is wrong to conclude that main the character clint eastwood pits the two gangs against each other for the money.
If that is the case, then why does he give it ALL away to Marisol, to whom he owes NO obligation or favors, at the risk of his own life?
Fortunately for the viewers, Marisol does ask why. His answer is ".. I used to know someone like you.. The director goes to great length to convince the viewer the man with no name has no morals.
In fact, he seems downright evil and greedy, as he constantly says "I don't work for cheap" and seems to be ready for hire for any sordid duties asked of him for the right price.
Only in the very brief and defining moment of the movie when he rescues Marisol, her son, and her husband we see him as he truly is.
Unlike most westerns, the man does not waste words preaching righteousness, he lets his actions speak for themselves.
It is the moral subtlety of this movie which makes it great. The Star Wars of westerns When Per un pungo di dollari, or A Fistful Of Dollars, was released in the mids, the term "Spaghetti Western" was coined as a putdown to these brazen new films that dared to recreate the Wild West in a place as far away as Italy.
However, the last laugh was shared by the Italian directors, whose new style of portraying Colonial America in a realistic style rather than the romanticised way that was characteristic of John Wayne and his contemporaries will be remembered long after the films of the romanticised style are no more.
The plot is indescribably simple, as Clint Eastwood simply wanders into a town where gang warfare has stripped the economy to the point where only the local undertaker makes a profit and turns the two warring families against one another.
Sergio Leone's best-known trademark, his dynamic use of widescreen ratios, comes to the fore here as Clint shares a film frame with no less than four of his enemies, all of whom have plenty to say to him and vice versa.
This is one film where a pan and scan transfer is purely and simply vandalism. Some of the dialogue that is included here absolutely takes the cake for cleverness and wit, too.
Asking four gunslingers to apologise to a horse, well, if it wasn't a man as famous for playing a gunslinger as Clint Eastwood, it'd be ridiculous.
Transplanting old Samurai legends into the Wild West works well, as you can see here. Simply having an old mercenary who travels the land in search of wrongs to right and battles to be fought makes the story a lot more compelling than the Westerns where we are told every iota of the characters' motivations in the hope that it will give them some depth.
The element of the main hero not getting involved in every scuffle that the bad guys cause, our semi-nameless hero's ignoring a drunken thug shooting at a little boy being the most obvious example, was another master stroke, one that got Eastwood involved in doing the film to begin with.
The confrontation at the end of the film works well, too, with pyrotechnics exploding all over the picture in a bright display that keeps the film powerful and yet focused at the same time.
All in all, Per un pungo di dollari gets nine out of ten from me. The lack of any interesting support characters does dull the story a little, but this mistake was quickly rectified in the two sequels.
The addition of Lee Van Cleef also worked well, but in this effort, it's all Clint Eastwood, and while the rest of the cast are nowhere near as interesting, it's all a better watch than anything the Americans were lumping out at the time.
The stranger discovers that the town is dominated by two gangster lords: John Baxter W. John Wells. Rupp to join their gang.
However, the stranger plots a scheme working for both sides and playing one side against the other. The result is a magnificent and remarkable movie, and beginning of the trilogy of Clint Eastwood's character Joe, who proves that "a man with a rifle beats a man with.
My vote is eight. The epitome of the S. This was the first S. It is a remake of Yojimbo , which itself was based on novel "Red Harvest" by Dashiell Hammett.
This classic Western contains slow and deliberating filming , elaborate shoot-outs , and portentous close-ups of grime-encrustred faces with bloodbaths included.
A remake to Yojimbo by Akira Kurosawa , in fact he sued the filmmakers for breach of copyright. The impact of this Spaghetti opened the gate for the huge numbers of Italian-Spanish Western which made fortune for their producers and directors in the sixties and early seventies.
This has been described as the first "spaghetti western", but when this film was made , there had already been about 25 such westerns produced in Italy.
Leone did revive his career almost instantly on the strength of this film , though the role was formerly offered to Charles Bronson , Frank Wolff , Rory Calhoun , Steve Reeves and Richard Harrison.
In fact , Richard Harrison was the one who suggested Clint Eastwood to Sergio Leone when the famed director was looking for the main actor , as Harrison said : Maybe my greatest contribution to cinema was not doing Fistful of Dollars , and recommending Clint for the part.
It's a slick remake of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo , the plot is mainly ripped off from classic Japanese , as Kurosawa wrote to Leone reclaiming the copyright.
For Leone enthusiastic with his usual trademarks , it's full of which made his films so memorable, others might find it a bit long but no one can deny its sense of style what achieved a great burst of world-wide popularity.
JamesHitchcock 17 November Although "A Fistful of Dollars" was not the first Spaghetti Western, it was the first to bring the genre to international attention.
This was also the film that made a major star of Clint Eastwood. His character in all three films is billed as "The Man with No Name", although here that is not quite accurate as he is referred to in the film itself as Joe, and represents a new breed of Western hero.
They were not only physically courageous but also morally virtuous, standing up for ideals of honour and justice against the villains.
Some films had heroes who were morally flawed, such as Howard Kemp, James Stewart's character in "The Naked Spur", but the films themselves still took a moralistic line, with these flaws condemned as moral weaknesses.
By the end of "The Naked Spur" Kemp has undergone redemption though a change of heart. The Man with No Name, by contrast, was deliberately presented as an amoral anti-hero.
He is courageous, but does not stand for any idealistic moral principles. He is occasionally capable of altruism, but most of the time is motivated by self-interest.
He is a hard-bitten, mercenary, laconic loner. Eastwood also gave him a distinctive physical appearance, characterised by his trademark poncho and cigar.
He also sports a beard or stubble, whereas most earlier Western heroes had been clean-shaven. The plot of "For a Fistful of Dollars" is said to be based upon the Japanese film "Yojimbo", although I cannot comment as I have never seen that film.
Joe arrives in the Mexican border town of San Miguel. The town is dominated by two rival families, the Rojos and the Baxters, who make their money out of a lucrative trade in smuggling contraband into the US.
Joe, a skilled gunfighter, sees this as a business opportunity, and plays the two sides off against one another, undertaking various jobs for both families while showing loyalty to neither.
His mistake comes, however, when he for once performs a good deed. Ramon, the most violent of the Rojo brothers, has taken as his mistress a young married woman named Marisol, forcing her against her will to abandon her husband and young child.
Joe helps her and her family to escape, and Ramon vows vengeance. It is one of the first "revisionist "Westerns", marking the start of a trend towards not only moral ambiguity but also a more realistic depiction of violence, shown not only in the shoot-outs, more messy and less clean-cut than those in many previous films, but also in the scenes where Joe is tortured by Rojos' thugs.
This revisionist line was to become commonplace in the Westerns of the late sixties and early seventies; Sam Peckinpah's "The Wild Bunch" is a good example of a film which shows the influence of Leone's work.
The film was originally shot without sound, with a soundtrack being dubbed on later. This was common practice in the Italian film industry and this time, as it allowed versions to be produced in different languages for the home and foreign markets.
The dubbing, however, is not always convincingly done, and it is all too obvious that some of the characters are mouthing words which bear no relation to what we actually hear.
The action is also at times over-leisurely and difficult to follow. Although Eastwood shows the talent and charisma which would make him a major star, the film today seems little more than a run-of-the-mill Western.
Nevertheless, in the sixties it must have seemed to American audiences like something fresh and exciting.
The first of Sergio Leone's "spaghetti westerns" is now overshadowed by its superior successors, but remains an exciting introduction to this peculiar genre.
Clint Eastwood redefined the notion of a hero in this film, a man who seems to operate by a code but doesn't feel the need to explain it.
Although the U. Leone's style would be more pronounced in later films, but this one provided the template. If it's slow moving at times, the music of Ennio Morricone always takes up the slack.
A classic. The first, or one of the first, films to introduce the concept of the Western antihero. Sergio Leone pioneered a lot of things here.
The brightness, the oppressive sunlight. The ugly brutality of Western gunfights, that had always been cleaned up in Hollywood.
I understand that Leone's occasional framing of the shooter and his victims in the same shot was not allowed at the time in American films.
The laconic "man with no name" - a tough gunslinger - manipulates rival families warring over a small frontier town.
Stylish, violent film was the first spaghetti western hit and made Clint Eastwood a star. More purchase options. By ordering or viewing, you agree to our Terms.

Ripley's Italian version, the German BR and now this one. This is the best. Restoration was done in Bologna, with co-operation of the last still living members of Leone's crew.
Picture is sharp in the right way, looking film-like. Colors are little yellowish and warm. Good extras, Marianne Koch, Christopher Frayling specially and restored outtakes - where we see how fast Clint was with the gun in real.
Ripley's BR have nice colors, but picture is not as sharp as in Kino BR, and english soundtrack is simply bad. Italian soundtrack is great, but there's no English subs.
German BR is not in the same level. Picture is over sharpened. A wandering gunfighter plays two rival families against each other in a town torn apart by greed, pride, and revenge.
Sergio Leone kicks off his spaghetti western trilogy with Clint Eastwood as the man with no name and quickly followed this with "For a Few Dollars More".
While it is not the best of the series, it still ranks above your average western, and Clint Eastwood always delivers.
You can see Eastwood knock a woman out, you can catch the exploding barrel. Gun enthusiasts might enjoy the discussion of a. The winner of this debate lives, the loser dies.
Sort of ads some weight to the topic. This was the first time that Sergio Leone and composer Ennio Morricone worked together.
Initially Leone was not keen on using Morricone for this film. Lacerenza's initial trumpet performance of the score made Leone quickly set aside any reservations.
Leone and Morricone, who had known each other since 3rd grade, would develop a close working relationship that would last through all of Leone's future films.
In fact, the movie borrowed so much that Kurosawa sued for copyright infringement, won and got a percent of the profits.
The story focuses upon the greed and violence of the Old West. Eastwood enters a town divided between two bosses named Baxter and Rojo and full of gunmen working for them.
A local tells Eastwood he should leave, but instead Eastwood decides to profit off of the situation. What he ends up doing is hiring himself out to each boss to play the two off of each other.
At first, it looks like Eastwood is just acting out of greed, but he actually has a plan. Together Eastwood and Leone re-defined the cowboy. Instead of having a stark difference between good and evil, Eastwood was actually like an anti-hero.
In the end it turns out he was trying to help the town. Clint Eastwood redefined the notion of a hero in this film, an invincible gun slinger who appears in a mysterious way and leaves quietly after killing his deadly opponents.

And trouble is the name of Ramon, claiming the husband cheated at cards, which wasn't true. He gets the wife to live with him as hostage.
The Stranger tells Marisol, her husband , and their son to leave town, at the same time giving them some money to tide them over. Marisol asks the Stranger, "Why do you do this for us?
Because I knew someone like you once. There was no one there to help. Now get moving". Believing the Stranger to be protected by the Baxters, the Rojos set fire to the Baxter home and massacre all the residents as they are forced to flee.
Now the only gang left in San Miguel, the Rojos confront and beat Silvanito, whom they think is hiding the Stranger. The Stranger returns to town, where he faces the Rojos in a dramatic showdown.
With a steel chest plate hidden beneath his clothing, he taunts Ramon to "aim for the heart" as Ramon's rifle shots bounce off.
Killing all present except Ramon, the Stranger challenges Ramon to reload his rifle faster than he, the Stranger, can reload his pistol.
He then shoots and kills Ramon. Esteban Rojo, unseen by the Stranger and aiming at him from a nearby building, is shot dead by Silvanito.
The Stranger says his goodbyes and rides from the town. The film's music was written by Ennio Morricone, credited as Dan Savio.
Morricone recalled Leone requesting him to write "Dimitri Tiomkin music" for the film. The trumpet theme is similar to Tiomkin's El Degüello theme from Rio Bravo that was called Un dollaro d'onore in Italy while the opening title whistling music recalls Tiomkin's use of whistling in his Gunfight at the O.

Fantastic movie , fantastic blu ray. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again.
This film broke the mold of hollywood westerns with a gritty gunslinger swindling two rival gangs. Westerns were never the same again, thank goodness.
I only rated it 4 star, as the dvd version I purchased shows in a frame smaller than my TV screen - should have checked the tech details.
I hadn't seen the film since the s, but it is still fresh, a western with some humour and the beginning of a legend. One person found this helpful.
The trilogy of Fistful of Dollars , For a few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly are terrific though the small screen size on he earlier 2 is a bit disappointing.
Great to watch as a box set on a cold winters night. Very entertaining introduction to Sergio Leones trio of spagetti westerns.
Apart from some excellent gunshooting scenes the film also has some good humour. Load more international reviews. What else can I say? A classic!
This so-called spaghetti western tastes as good as Italian food. Better than the modern American western. Classic film on a great quality blueray disc.
Can't go wrong. Bought this as a gift I have had no complaints. A story about a wanderer who pits two rival gangs against each other to his own profit.
Based on a Japanese drama, Yojimbo, which was also adapted less successfully into a Bruce Willis vehicle - Last man standing.
Despite the 'spaghetti' label there is nothing cheap about the drama. Gripping and entertaining throughout. Brilliant film, really enjoyed it.
This movie was the first of the three Leone films with Clint Eastwood. It stands the test of time well,and has everything you expect from a Sergio Leone film: stark dry landscapes, haunting theme music,and moments of humour to break up the tension.
The violence is brutal,but no where near to the harshness of a Sam Peckinpah-type shoot out. This special edition is loaded with interesting and revealing extras.
A very good buy. Is what it says. Clint Eastwood good as ever. I liked the quick response from this company, will use again. You've read the top international reviews.
