Dollars Trilogy 2: For a Few Dollars More (1965)

Ok, this brings us to the second installment of the Dollars trilogy. The man with no name is back, this time as a bounty hunter. All the characteristic are exactly the same. He competes with another bounty hunter who took the profession after retiring from the army. Both of them are after the reward for a gang of outlaws headed by a dreaded leader Indio. They join their forces down the line to eliminate the gang and get the reward. There is also a slight twist in the end as Colonel has some hidden motives as well. Like all other westerns it has simple story and a stylish execution. Another great effort from Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood, but Lee Von Cliff as Colonel Mortimer is an excellent addition to the cast. He does look cold blooded and a precise, calculating slayer.
The music and background score is better than Fistful of Dollars, and so is the direction. I think Sergio Leone improved with time and so did Ennio Morricone who has given some beautiful harmonica compositions here.

Rating: “Where life had no value, death, sometimes, had its price. That is why the bounty killers appeared” and they will surely give you an adrenaline high outta 10.
