Review of “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”: the plot keeps you coming back for more

A woman has just prepared food for her husband and son, but little does she know that this will be their last lunch.

A cold-faced killer enters the farm owner’s home, sits down at the table and eats without saying a word. After a few moments of confrontation, the man decides from his powerful aura that this man is up to no good, and in order to keep his family safe, he reveals the shocking secret he has kept in his heart and tries to offer double the reward for his life. However, the killer doesn’t buy it. After learning that the soldier, who goes by the name “Bill Carson”, has a fortune of 200,000 in military pay, the killer simply takes care of the man and his son, and takes the man’s 1,000 ransom money with him.

He returned to his employer’s home to resume his duties and successfully received the 500 bounty, and then tried to take the unexpected 200,000 in treasure for himself. In order not to let anyone know, he shoots the man in the head and in his death throes the employer calls out the name of the killer, “Angel Eyes”.

It was the 1860s and the American Civil War was in full swing. Angel Eyes learns from an amputee soldier selling information that Bill Carson is now in the Confederate Army and has a prostitute as a concubine. He then hid in the woman’s house and violently beat her to find out where the man was, but as soon as Bill Carson left, he was unsuccessful and Angel Eyes had to continue his pursuit.

By coincidence, Angel Eyes stumbles upon a Confederate casualty camp on his way and surmises from the cook that if Bill Carson survived in the desert, there is a good chance he is in a Northern prisoner of war camp. Angel Eyes was ruthless, but he did have a knack for it, and he soon became second in command in the Northern POW camp. What he didn’t know was that someone else had found him and someone else had found him.

Three brutal-looking bounty hunters surrounded a man in a log cabin and tried to catch him in a trap, but the man killed them instead. The man gallops off into the wilderness, where he encounters a second group of three killers. The three men compare their portraits and discover that the man is Tuco, the thief for whom the police have offered a $2,000 reward.

Just as Tuco was about to be captured, a blond behind him said to the three men in a domineering voice, “Unfortunately, you don’t look like the kind of people who can collect a reward. As soon as the words left his mouth, three shots were fired and the three men fell. Tuko was thanking the blond when he was surprised to learn that he was also a bounty hunter. Tuko was tied to a horse and cursed at Blondie the whole way. Blondie escorted Tuco to the sheriff’s office where he was rewarded 2,000.

With his head in a noose hanging from a tree, Tuco sat tied up on a horse while the executioner read out his heinous charges to the public. Not only is he not afraid, but he is smugly using the long list of crimes as a medal, while also stealing glances at the pretty woman next to him. Just as the executioner announces the hanging, a bullet from the shadows penetrates the rope from which Tuco’s head is suspended, and the three sheriffs’ hats fall off one by one, stunned into submission.

It turned out to be a play he and Blondie had put together, with Tuco pretending to be captured, Blondie getting the reward and then helping him escape, and then splitting the money 50/50.

This was a tried and tested trick until another 3,000 bounty came in. Knowing that the trick would no longer work, the blonde abandoned Tuco in the desert, 70 kilometres from town, and left him to fend for himself.

Tuko lumbered out of the desert and made it to the town by crossing a suspension bridge. He hurriedly took a few sips of water and as soon as he looked up he was lucky enough to find a gun shop. He expertly assembled a handy revolver in the shop and robbed the old man who owned it of $200 in the process.

Bent on revenge, Tuco finds three of his old bandit friends and tracks Blondie all the way to a hotel. Inside, Blondie is cleaning his pistol, while outside the South is marching. The three bandits tried to use the noise outside to disguise their footsteps, but the alert Blondie noticed them and the three were killed as soon as the door was opened. At that moment the cunning Tuco suddenly jumped through the window and restrained the blond with his pistol, trying to hang him by the rope as he had done. Just as Tuco pulled the trigger, an army cannon suddenly blew up the floor and Tuco fell, while Blondie took the opportunity to escape.

Tuko cursed his bad luck, regrouped and rushed after him. Knowing that Blondie loved to smoke cigars, he eventually caught him by following a trail of cigarette butts along the way. The thought of Blondie’s previous betrayal and torture made Tuco’s teeth itch, so he decided to return the favour. He took Blondie out into the desert, broke his water bottle, knocked off his hat and forced him to walk hard in the blazing sun and sand. While he rides his horse under a sunshade, drinks and eats meat, he won’t even give Blondie a sip of his own footwash.

The blond, who had been so cool and handsome, was now blistered by the blazing sun and Tuco lost interest in teasing him when he saw his inhuman form. As Tuco drew his pistol, he was about to give him a hard time when a sudden clatter of horses’ hooves caught his attention.

In the distance came a six-horse carriage and Tuco rushed forward to stop the horses. Tuko mumbled “bad luck” as he scavenged the dead for any valuables. He was about to enjoy a box of cigarettes when one of the corpses behind him suddenly started to speak, startling Tuco. It turned out that one of the men inside was still alive and had told Tuco his name was Bill Carson in order to get water to survive, and revealed the secret of the 200,000 gold coins hidden in the cemetery at Heartbreak Slope. Tuko was about to ask for the exact location when the man fainted.

Tuko rushed to fetch water and ran back to the wagon only to find the man dead and the blond he had ignored had somehow crawled to the side of the wagon and learned the key information about Bill Carson’s treasure stash. The blonde is now dying, and Tuco is annoyed and anxious to save the blonde as soon as he realises that his fortune may be in vain.

To facilitate the journey, Tuco disguised himself as Bill Carson, the one-eyed dragon, and the carriage sped off to the church where the wounded soldier was being treated. The good and righteous church priest turns out to be the brother of the villainous bandit Tuco. It is a sad twist of fate that the two men have taken completely different paths because of poverty. When Tuco learns of the death of his parents, he turns against his brother, but pretends in front of Blondie that he has a good brother who takes care of him. The truth is that Blondie knows the truth, but he just doesn’t tell the truth.

As the two men head towards the direction of the buried treasure, they see a large group of men wearing grey uniforms, and they are wearing grey uniforms, so they think they are Southerners, and Tuco shouts “The Southerners will win! The officer approached and shook the dust off his body, but it was the blue uniform of the Northerners. Tuko and Blondie were then taken into a Northern POW camp.

The leader of the Northern Army was a benevolent officer who abhorred Angel Eyes’ mistreatment of the prisoners, but he was dying of septicaemia caused by gunshot wounds sustained during the war. Angel Eyes’ men are doing their usual routine of beating and enriching the prisoners. Suddenly the name “Bill Carson” reached Angel Eyes’ ears and he leapt to his feet in excitement.

But when he saw that the man was a fellow soldier he knew as Tuco, Angel Eyes knew a little more. He had been so generous with his wine and food that he hadn’t expected Tuko to play dumb and not eat the wine. Outside, beautiful music plays and inside, a fat, brutal officer tortures Tuco. The music goes on, the beating continues. After a few rounds, even the toughest man can’t take it, and Tuco confesses to the Sad Slope cemetery.

When it was Blondie’s turn to question him, Angel Eyes changed his tune and said he would cooperate with him. He knew that torture would not work and that Blondie was a smart man and that keeping secrets was the best way to save his life. At this point, Tuco is no longer a worthless scapegoat and is taken away by the fat officer to be disposed of.

Angel Eyes pretended to work with Blondie and secretly sent six men behind him. This tactic did not go down well with the shrewd Blondie, who decided to take his chances.

Tuko jumped off the train while it was moving and stoned the fat man to death, then used the moving train to break his chains to escape.

Angel Eyes and his group of six and Blondie arrived in a small town and landed in the town when Tuco arrived. Blondie heard Tuco’s gunshots and slipped out to find his partner when Angel Eyes wasn’t looking. The two join forces and kill six of Angel Eyes’ men, while the cunning Angel Eyes has already fled.

On the way to the cemetery, the two are captured by the North and taken to the barracks to meet the leader, Captain. At this point the North and South are fighting a pointless battle to defend a wooden bridge. The Captain suggests that the two men can stop the war by blowing up the bridge, but the soldiers can’t do it, which coincides with their search for the gold coins. The two men use a monopod to tie the explosives under the wooden bridge, and because of the dangers of blowing up the bridge, they agree to tell each other half of the secrets they know.

The two men fell asleep exhausted after blowing up the bridge and woke up the next day with the army long gone. They swim across to the other side, where the place is strewn with corpses, and Blondie offers his dying condolences to a soldier who still has a breath left. He put his coat over the soldier and handed out cigarillos to him. At that moment, Tuco took the opportunity to ride wildly, intending to get ahead of the others, and Blondie noticed and fired two cannons at Tuco.

Tuko stumbled and looked up and was shocked to find that he had reached the cemetery. And so he ran wildly through the cemetery, searching for the name of the gravestone he had learned from Blondie. The cemetery was so dense as far as the eye could see that he could not even see the end of it, and the villain was ecstatic over the gold, where the soldier had rested for a long time. At last Tuco saw the name he had so longed for and he dug with his plank in excitement.

At that moment a shovel was thrown and Blondie rushed to the grave to tell Tuco to keep digging. Suddenly another shovel was thrown at him and it turned out that Angel Eyes, who was hiding in the shadows, wanted to take advantage of the situation and threatened Blondie with a gun to dig with him. Blondie kicked open the coffin and it turned out that he had saved the gold coins from being hidden there. He writes the name of the hidden treasure under a stone and proposes a three-man duel, with the one who survives to win the gold coin.

The three gold darters, in the middle square of a cemetery resembling the Roman Colosseum, fight it out in a final battle. The seconds ticked by, their minds racing and their eyes blazing. Suddenly, Blondie and Tuco’s guns are aimed at Angel Eyes at the same time. Angel Eyes is shot dead, and Tuco realises that his bullet has long since been discharged by Blondie.

Blondie tells Tuco to dig up the unmarked grave next to the grave.

Just as he was holding the gold coins in his hands with excitement and inner ecstasy, what he didn’t expect was a chokehold on his fate. Threatened with a gun, Tuko was forced to hang from a rope over his head and a wooden stake with his hands tied behind his back. The blond then put four bags of gold coins on his horse and took off.

The gold glittered in front of his eyes, while Tuco’s feet wobbled and the rope around his throat grew tighter and tighter. His clothes were drenched in sweat, he wanted to shout but could not, he wanted to struggle but could not, his eyes filled with tears, he was angry and desperate at the same time. Just when he thought he was going to die, the blonde suddenly killed him, the rope broke instantly and Tuco fell on his face. As the saying goes, life and death are linked, and glory and fortune are in a flash… two words, brilliant!
