      Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy it's not half bad, particularly given how threadbare the idea of even a slapstick Western had become by 1975. Rated: 6/10 Sep 8, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Farcical entertainment. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Terence Hill reprises his Nobody role in a film that is perhaps less impressive and certainly less memorable than the previous effort. A film produced by Sergio Leone that seems to stand as a satirical take on his famous films. Its mixture of slapstick and western is childish but entertaining. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I wasn't a huge fan of "My Name is Nobody", so this semi-psuedo-sequel that is in many ways inferior to THAT film probably wasn't going to impress me. The film was sometimes released as "Nobody's the Greatest", in order to tie it in closer to "My Name is Nobody". The opening scene was directed by Sergio Leone, but after seeing the finished product he had his name removed from the movie entirely. Terence Hill returns to play a character quite similar to "Nobody" from the previous film, whether or not he is the same is up for debate. I think these Spaghetti Western send-ups weren't terribly funny, which is a shame...but they were never gonna be as funny as "Blazing Saddles" had already been. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member As Great as the First Part!!! Terence Hill is Awesome!!! And Klaus Kinski as Villain!!! Hill, The Indian & The Blonde Girl are a Great Trio!!! Cinematography & Soundtrack are Excellent!!! The Story is brilliant and it seems like a Combination of a Italowestern, A Adventure Movie & a Buster Keaton like Slapstick Comedy!!! Also lot of Socio-Critism!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A great sequel to "My Name Is Nobody". It's not a better movie, but it's real fun and so much bettter than expected! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is pure perfection. The last western by Sergio Leone is starred by geniuses like Terence Hill, Patrick McGoohan, Robert Charlebois, and Klaus Kinski. It has all the assets of traditional and spaghetti westerns while being tremendously funny at the same time. Besides, Miou-Miou might have been the most beautiful actress ever.
