From that link:

"Description: The Man With No Name and Tuco are gunmen who admire each other professionally but dislike each other personally. Encountering a group of dying soldiers, Tuco learns the location of the graveyard where a Confederate treasure is buried, while the Man With No Name learns the identity of the exact grave. Joined by mercenary drifter Sentenza, they cross the desert, each of the desperadoes knowing part of the secret and each focusing his squinty eyes on the $200,000 bounty.
Genre: Western
Running Time: 179 Minutes
Certificate: 18"

Really?  "gunmen who admire each other professionally but dislike each other personally" ?  Never heard the "relationship" described quite like that !!!

Further info from the BBFC:

Quote
THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY in an extended version of a 1966 western about three men searching for hidden gold during the American Civil War. It was passed '15' for strong violence, moderate gore and hanging scenes.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '15' with regard to Violence state that 'Violence may be strong but may not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury'. The film contains several violent scenes with the strongest scene featuring one of the three men being brutally beaten to extract information about the location of the gold. This is a long scene that includes sight of a man's thumbs being pushed into the victim's eyes, but this sequence and other violent moments cut away after establishing the action rather than dwelling on the violence so it is permissible at '15' although the detail and emphasis on injuries here and elsewhere means it exceeds the '12A' rubric.

There are also some scenes showing moderate gore with the strongest scenes occurring during an extended sequence when a man is forced to walk through a desert and which causes his skin to blister and bleed and these too exceed the '12A' rubric although they are not the strongest gory images that are unlikely to be acceptable at '15'.

As for Imitable techniques, the film features some hanging scenes that often involve a man being saved from death by his colleague shooting the rope that hangs around his neck. These scenes appear to be harm free and are not allowable at '12A', although they do no dwell on imitable detail so they are permissible at '15'.

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY also contains some mild and moderate language and moderate sex references
