The Blu-ray edition of Sergio Leone's Once upon a Time in the West is not only a vast improvement over the 2003 DVD release, but the lavish tribute a classic of its stature has long deserved. The much-discussed inclusion of both the American theatrical version and the restored Italian cut will undoubtedly be the chief attraction for fans, though it should be noted that the differences between the two amount to less than a minute of footage involving Jason Robards's Cheyenne. However, a three-part, hour-long series of new documentaries features interviews with the film's surviving participants--actors Claudia Cardinale and Gabriele Ferzetti, cinematographer Tonino Delli Colli, and in particular, co-screenwriter Bernardo Bertolucci. It offers fascinating perspective on Leone and his epic, as well as homage from genre experts and famous fans, including directors John Carpenter (whose no-nonsense approach is refreshing), Walter Hill, and Alex Cox (Repo Man), who are appropriately respectful and informative. Most of the aforementioned people are also featured on a commentary track led by author and film historian Sir Christopher Frayling; their contributions range from the didactic to (in the case of Cox) the truly offbeat. Less intriguing is The Railroad: Revolutionizing the West, which awkwardly blends clips from the interviews with historical text and photos. But the original trailer, now presented in high-def, is stunning, as are galleries of production photos and location footage, the latter shown in the present as well as during filming. Audiophiles will also appreciate the wide range of audio options, including English 5.1 DTS-HD MA (as well as English mono, for those wishing to emulate the original TV broadcasts), and the attention paid to composer Ennio Morricone's score, which sounds extraordinarily lush and grand. Purists and obsessives will undoubtedly find some fault with the presentation, most notably in regard to the varying lengths (since rumors of a longer European cut abound), but for now, this is the version of Once upon a Time in the West that Leone fans have been waiting for. --Paul Gaita --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Many consider The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly to be Leone's best spaghetti western. But if you have never seen this one, you should. For me, it ranks right up there with his others, and the Morriconi's haunting soundtrack is equally as beautiful. Just seeing Henry Fonda as the bad guy is worth it. And the BluRay is wonderful video quality.

My title is a cliche but in this case it's the only phrase to use. The version of this movie available now, with its extra disc full of great bonus material, is an example of how to bring DVD format to its highest potential. First of course there's the movie, and its director Sergio Leone. Every Leone movie I've seen--Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good Bad and Ugly, Once Upon a Time in America--is wonderful, but this tops them all. Imagine the year 1969: what a great time to be a western film lover. You had this, and Sam Peckinpah's Wild Bunch in the same year. Incredible. Anyway, it's impossible to list all the great scenes, so I'll stick with the first. If you love the credit sequence you'll love the movie; it's not for everybody, however. So those credits, mostly silent except for a windmill creaking, which Leone somehow makes sinister, and one of the minimal details he uses to establish authentic mood, are the litmus test. You'll either love the movie or hate it. The scene is built on a genius contradiction: it's so tense that you want it to end, but it's so beautifully done, so built on image and gesture and glance, that you also hope it never ends. The whole movie is that delicious. And the cast--wow. Everyone is at top form, but check out Henry Fonda as the leanest meanest bastard imaginable, but also someone you can't avoid enjoying because it is the GREAT Mr. Fonda, with Leone getting maximum mileage out of close ups of Fonda's ice-blue eyes, as unforgiving as a western sky, generally acting like the amiable stalwart figure he always plays, until he shoots little kids and fat lackeys whom he doesn't trust because they wear both suspenders and belts: and as Fonda says, how can you trust a man who can't even trust his own pants?Read more ›

If you have never been scared of Henry Fonda, this is the movie that will do it for you. The scene in the beginning, right after the whole family is killed is so eerie as the gunmen just appear silently from the brush. Henry Fonda's cold, killer eyes staring down the little child before he shoots him. Wow.

This is a very well made film, nothing like is has been made in years. Every scene takes its time to build up the right mood. This is a movie to watch when you have alot of time and nobody is around to bother you. The DVD transfer is nothing short of amazing, the color and quality of this 35 year old film will leave you speechless.

Claudia Cardinale is an absolutely stunning beauty, Charles Bronson is perfect as the vengeful quiet loner. I didnt expect Jason Robards to work well but he is very effective.

Definitly a movie to buy, not just rent. Something to give to someone who really appreciates epic movies the way they used to make them.

Leone went to America and started his second trilogy with this Western. Then came A fithful of dynamite and finally Once upon a time in America. The title for the second movie in France was Once upon a time the Revolution. This second trilogy had this in common, titles started with the same words. Leone was once again majestious choosing the right characters, Fonda for an unusual role in a depictable character and Bronson as the guy who doesn't talk much, like Eastwood in previous movies. The music accompanies the image in a beautiful way like when Cardinale arrived at the train station and the camera goes up to reveal the entire city with the music taking off with the choirs. The dust, the shootings, the rocks of Monument vallee, everything reminds of the wild west. The first scene is perfect with these 3 men with their own story, the fly, the water drop etc...Leone wanted Eastwood, Wallach and Van Cleef to play these 3 guys. It would be have a nice cameo after the Good the bad and the ugly. Eastwood didn't want to be remember in Leone's movie as a guy who gets killed. This shows how much characters are important, how much actors got involved in these movies. Bronson plays perfectly the guy who remembers how his brother was killed. Almost all violent scenes are not shown, just suggested, like the massacre, we only see dead bodies. This movies was made like a Greek drama, very slowly, without a lot of dialogues, and in a very theatratical and solennal way. This is a must see for western lovers.

A masterpiece. Amazing direction, score, action and pathos. Only "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" is a superior Western...of course both films transcend Western and are closer to what Akira Kurosawa was doing with his Samurai epics. And man: Once Upon A Time In The West is EPIC!!! Fonda and Bronson give their best performances and Cardinale is hot as all sweaty hell. A must for any Leone fan. And for the critics: Italians made better Westerns than Americans...ironic for sure, but deal with it. Get some culture, GET this movie!
