Sergio Leone's dazzling sequel to FISTFUL OF DOLLARS finds the pancho- clad, cigar-chewing, mysterious drifter ('Man with No Name') (Clint Eastwood) locked in competition with a rival bounty hunter (Lee Van Cleef)--then both forming an uneasy alliance in a mutual quest for the psychopathic bandit Indio (Gian Maria Volont‚). Their reasons for going after him are markedly different: Eastwood is interested in the award money; Van Cleef seeks vengeance on Volont‚, the man who brutally raped and murdered his sister. Eastwood is the man with no past--cold, amoral; Van Cleef is the man who has a past--and a deadly purpose. The piling up of bodies after the climactic shoot-out will yield very different outcomes for them both... The film score is another masterpiece by Ennio Morricone.
