Odd that you would say this, as the film makes it clear that revolution is NOT the answer (hence the On Patriotism scene). Instead, Leone suggests that personal relationships is the answer (choose a friend over a cause, any day).

Yea Mike I'd have to agree with dave jenkins on that point. Revolution is confusion.

Yeah It's a sad state of affairs at best buy. They have gotten rid of the more obscure older titles in order to make way for the new releases.

They don't even hold it (nor do they hold the SE's of the dollars trilogy!) on their online website where they even have THE HILLS RUN RED(?).

Fred Meyers has it for 19.99. Best deals are on line, though.

Misunderstanding based on different language background on my side. 'ANSWER' meaning over here that (revolution) is the result of the politics, not a solution to the problem of poverty or what have you...

FINALLY I GET TO SEE DUCK YOU SUCKER! My (strange) review:

What can i say about this film that hasnt already been said? I will start off by saying that if theres one person who can make Revolution look beatiful and horrible at the same time it could only be Leone. I can't understand why people see this as Leone's lowpoint in all of his films. If anything this movie is as great as all of his other movies excluding Collusus Of Rhodes. Leone balance's the characters and plot by making them both more obscurd every minute into the film. Especially the ending with Sean and Sean (YES ITS SEAN NOT JOHN THATS WHY THE CHORUS SINGS SEAN,SEAN) and that girl with them making out and SEAN'S disturbing smile at the end. Coburn is great but Steiger is better with his murederous yet family man character that is Juan. Possibly the best part out of the whole movie is Sean(John) and Juan shooting their machine guns at the people crossing the bridge and the that exploison! WOW! That was simply AMAZING! In the end this is seriously A Leone Must See just like all of his other films. ***** out of *****

A very good film. I feeled always a little strange: the first half is an adventure-comedy, the second a tragedy. But it works.
