My rating: *****

My assessment (the first 101 words at least): The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is the best western I’ve ever seen and has given me new found respect for Clint Eastwood. All of the characters are three dimensional and fun to watch, but Clint Eastwood steals the show as the calm and collected bad ass who always has an ace up his sleeve. I was surprised at the Civil War background, but it served the movie very well in the end, adding to the world at large and providing an appropriate backdrop. An extremely entertaining movie that may have just made me a Clint Eastwood fan for life.
