    The fully restored version is the absolute BEST SERGIO LEONE FILM EVER!!!!! Should be renamed "Once Upon A Time...The Revolution."

    Far far from perfect, sometimes idiotic and infantile. the comic and tragic elements are too incompatible to fuse into tragi-comedy. sometimes, it's hard to tell whether leone is being romantic or parodic. but, all in all, the movie has sweeping glory, sean and juan friendship gains a crudely beautiful luster, morricone's music is rapturous, and the ending unforgettable. it was Far far from perfect, sometimes idiotic and infantile. the comic and tragic elements are too incompatible to fuse into tragi-comedy. sometimes, it's hard to tell whether leone is being romantic or parodic. but, all in all, the movie has sweeping glory, sean and juan friendship gains a crudely beautiful luster, morricone's music is rapturous, and the ending unforgettable. it was leone's first real departure from his mythic westerns and anticipated his historical period film once upon a time in america.

    Quite simply the best movie ever made. An incredible statement perhaps but the depth and bredth of this movie is breathtalking. Those who deride it as purile are obviously not capable of accepting the journey of growth undergone by these two men during the movie. This is sadly why this movie is not received by the mainstream audience. They are expecting a fully eveolved 'dynamic Quite simply the best movie ever made. An incredible statement perhaps but the depth and bredth of this movie is breathtalking. Those who deride it as purile are obviously not capable of accepting the journey of growth undergone by these two men during the movie. This is sadly why this movie is not received by the mainstream audience. They are expecting a fully eveolved 'dynamic hero' character from the very beginning - a one dimensional executioner as we have seen in the previous leone films with the exception of once upon a time in the west. The two main characters in this film undergo a journey filled initially with greed or selfish ego driven concerns but ultimately through the tragedy of personal loss and an acquirred empathy for other humans in suffering they grown and become true human beings - well almost - eventually they tire of the killing even though they realise they are stuck on a path which even though they no longer believe in it's aims or it's method are nevertheless still fated to see through till the end. This is opera at its most sophisticated and one of a truly handful of movies that genuinely attempts to teach us something.Perhaps if you can not accept this movie then you should ask yourself 'have I grown since the dollars trilogy' or am I still simply hooked on hollow emotionless gunbattles and gangster antics. Go on watch the movie and learn to cry - becuase this is a film that should bring many tears to your eyes. They call it the forgotten masterpiece but it not fogotten it is ignored as so often the harsh reality of life is. For me leone retrograded with once upon a time in america - he never again achieved the pathos of this movie. The music is superb and sergio donatti deserved to be recognised for the humanity he managed to sneak into this film. Expand

    This film has grown on viewers over the years and now shares it's place along Leone's other masterpieces. Forget that it's Steiger playing a Mexican and let the relationship of Coburn and Steiger envelope your senses.

    Well-plotted action, but as in most of Leone's films scenes seem to have been deleted from the American prints.

    As ambitious as it is anachronistic, Duck, You Sucker demands to be read through the prism of World War II as well as 1968. Could this be the last movie in the great Italian tradition that began in 1945?
  3. 80
    The resultant mix of dreaminess, violence and politics is a bit unwieldy, but it sticks to your ribs. You'll savor pieces of Duck, You Sucker in your head much later: the mark of a work by a true voluptuary, the overspill in whose craft comes as much from enthusiasm as arrogance.
