They formed an alliance of hate to steal a fortune in dead man’s gold.

During the Civil War, three bounty hunters are searching for a hidden treasure: a mysterious blond stranger (“The Good”), the ruthless mercenary Angel Eyes (“The Bad”), and the mexican bandit Tuco (“The Ugly”). The three of them have nothing in common, but team up if circumstances require them to. However, they don’t trust each other and only act to their own advantage.

In their hunt for the hidden gold, none of them knows the exact location of the hiding place. Everyone has a different part of that information, so they are forced to join forces against their will. And they are not willing to share, should they find the gold.

Sergio Leone’s grandiose 1966 western epic is nothing less than a masterclass in movie storytelling, a dynamic testament to the sheer, invigorating uniqueness of cinema. (Time Out)
