Product Description

Amazon.ca

A different sort of Sergio Leone Western, this one takes place during the Mexican Revolution, with more politics than usual. But there's still plenty of action, with Rod Steiger as a cigar-chomping peasant who robs banks to liberate political prisoners, and James Coburn as an Irish terrorist trying to flee from his bitter past. They team up to thwart a sadistic officer and help the cause; redemption for the more subdued Coburn provides added depth. Beware: this is not the longer uncut version (released in Italy) known as Duck, You Sucker, featuring more flashbacks, more politics, and a more unsavory Steiger. But it's terrific fun, even in this shortened version, with Ennio Morricone's moody score and Coburn's most underrated performance. --Bill Desowitz

Set in the early 1900s in Mexico depicting the revolutionary conflict. It was a bit over the top but still credible for this genre of movie. The story is about as complex as you can get (or maybe want) for a western-style movie without making it ridiculous. The two main characters are unlikely comapadres, but it works on several levels. The flashbacks add another dimension to the film plot and character development. As a watcher it is hard to either relate to, or identify with either character- which really is strangely beneficial because it leaves the door open to unpredictable events & outcomes.

Another highly stylized Spaghetti Western largely filmed in Spain. It does not feel like Mexico but has that Spanish underpinning that gives it credibility. Leone is an expert on creating psychological drama especially with close-ups on the faces of the actors and uses added focus on the eyes to give greater depth to characters.

Overall I liked this movie.
There are moments of inertia but it is generally an action packed movie with good special effects for the period it was made. It was good that Clint Eastwood did not find his way into this movie- using Rod Steiger and James Coburn provided a fresh view of Leone's work and this character pairing is magical.

Although not quite as good as Once Upon A Time In The West and The Good The Bad and the Ugly, this is still a masterpiece and remains Italian cinema's best depiction of the Mexican revolution. Leone's landscape panoramas and his unrivalled close-ups, Morricone's fantasic music (his score is right-up there with his all time best - buy the CD) and great, larger than life performances by Steiger and Coburn contribute to the fun. "Where there's revolution, there's confusion. And where there's confusion a man who knows what he wants stand a good chance of getting it".
My favourites - the scene in which Coburn watches the execution of the revolutionaries intercut with a flashback of killing his best friend (played by Lucio Fulci horror star David Warbeck) in Ireland and the scene in which Steiger robs the bank opening door after door to find revolutionaries instead of money to the accompanyment of a Morricone tune steadily building in crescendo.
But this is the cut PG rated version and is also pan and scanned - the uncut version, which is about 17 minutes longer, was released on laserdisc a couple of years ago and surely DVD is crying out for a widescreen, uncut release. Where is it ?

The story of a Mexican gold-hungry troublemaker teaming up with an Irish expatriate holds great fun and plenty of action! The most interesting character here might be the man who is both full of gusto and at the same time,dramatically torn:Sean Mallory.
I have seen both versions,the European one and the American one,and I don`t think it was a loss for the film to be issued in a new,shorter version,actually,it was quite rewarding for the story.I think the European version had too many moments where you just waited for something to happen.
The music has to be commented upon.It`s beautiful! Present and past come together as Mallory`s longing for the girl he left behind blends with Mallory`s present situation in Mexico. The romantic and melodious mixed with the rough and rhythmic. Perfect!
This film is a grand buy!

I saw the original movie on TV and I thought it was great. So I purchased it from Amazon.com (VHS) and little did I know it was an edited version. They need to release a DVD/VHS uncut version. The edited version messed up the whole movie.

This film was nearly lost to American viewers for many years. This story is unique in the sense that a renegade Irishman bands with a Mexican rogue and his family amidst the madness of Mexico torn by civil war. There are some brutal moments and some very funny scenes. The feeling of the time is captured as only Leone could do. Some terrific battle scenes and one of the best train wrecks ever filmed. Great dialog and great musical score by Ennio Morricone is both haunting and flowing. Plenty of action and adventure for the hardcore fan of the Italian films. Check it out.

By A Customer on Feb. 6 1999
I saw this movie soon after it was released. It remains one of my favourites. Coburn, is extra cool, but the show belongs to Steiger whose staccato speech is unmistakable, and whose silences and glares speak tomes.
The bad guy() is as classic a bad guy as Rutger Hauer's in 'Bladerunner', and also, with no heart at all.
The two main characters relationship grows from nothing, through a revolution, and to the very bitter and yet profound end.
A western for a change, with a real message!

A must for Sergio Leone fans Duck, You Sucker has lots of character and massive explosions. I'd highly recommend having all the films in Leone's trilogy: Once Upon a Time in the West; Once Upon a Time in America and Duck, You Sucker.
(edited April 2013) I originally criticized this DVD for having subtitles I couldn't get rid of. Months later I discovered it was the Closed Captioning on our TV that was the problem. So many remotes....

This movie has been one of my favorites for years. James Coburn and Rod Steiger are great in their roles, expecially Steiger. The story about a Mexican bandit who's drawn unwilingly into a revolution by an Irish explosive expert combines both superb action scenes, great drama, humor and also has a brilliant score by Ennio Morricone. A must for Leone fans and everybody else should try to see it if they get a chance!
