When I went into this, I knew I'd have to write something about it, so as I watched I kind of pictured what I'd do. After 25 minutes I said to myself "The first 25 minutes of this movie are perfect!" Then, after 45, I said "The first 45 minutes of this movie are perfect!" And so it went on for a 160 minutes, after which the only thing I could think of about for this review is "The 160 minutes of t... read more

''If you want to, you can lay me over the table and amuse yourself. And even call in your men. Well. No woman ever died from that. When you're finished, all I'll need will be a tub of boiling water, and I'll be exactly what I was before - with just another filthy memory.

this masterpiece of Sergio Leone is surely in the top 3 of the best western movie ever made and the all stars cast and the legendary soundtrack from Ennio Morricone have made this film one of the most legendary western movie of all time.

“Although I have not seen all his films, I have yet to see a Sergio Leone film I hate. The movies I have seen of his are visually gorgeous with superb scores and interesting stories and characters. Once Upon a Time in the West is no exception. It is long and slow, but I think the film was deliberately paced like that.

Once Upon a Time in the West does take a lot of risks, including improvising the action around the score's moods. This was a risk that paid off. The story is rich and compelling and the dialogue is thought provoking and beautifully written. Leone also proved what a fine director he was by directing so wonderfully on this film.

The characters are great and quite complex, and are further advantaged by being wonderfully portrayed. There is the brutish gunfight” read more

"1.1. rewatch Sattui tulemaan telkkarista tämä ja osasin arvostaa tekelettä enemmän kuin aikaisemmin. Leonen tapa rakentaa tunnelmaa pitkillä kohtauksilla, joissa mm. äänimaailman ja tiukkojen lähikuvien avulla luodaan jännitettä, hahmottui itselleni kunnolla vasta tällä kolmannella katselulla. Intensiivisten lähi- ja näyttävien laajakuvien käyttö, Morriconen musiikit ja yleinen verkkainen, mutta intensiivinen kerronta aiheuttaa itselleni tietyllä tapaa unenomaisen olon; elokuv"

"“It is Sergio Leone’s masterpiece, the one he was practicing for with those hard-edged Clint Eastwood Italian westerns Leone directed in the 1960s. More epic in scope and richer in storyline, Leone’s ace-card this time was his casting the all-American good fellow Henry Fonda as a vicious, evil, and morally corrupt killer. Fonda later said it was his favorite of all the screen roles he played.” -Robert Osborne"

" Notes: Of course, this movie was pretty awesome. To be honest, 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' remains, hands down, my favorite Western directed by Sergio Leone but this one was very good as well. Indeed, the directing, the acting, the music, everything was quite amazing. Back in those days, it was pretty shocking to see the great Henry Fonda, who always played the righteous man, portray this time a cold heartless SOB.
