  1. Trevor L. Charles's rating of the film The Great Silence

  2. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Great Silence

    I love Western. Also the Italian ones. But this here is a shame. The title should be 'The Grande Stronzate'. Very bad acting all across the board (Kinski doesn't act, he plays himself, Trintingnant very much implausible, the revenge lady acting like a piece of wood); the camera a nightmare; very bad & idiotic dialogues; equitpment & staffage amateurish; ridiculous plot; lousy music. And Corbucci? He is not Leone.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film The Great Silence

    Etonnant western, tourné dans les fascinantes Dolomites, qui transcende le médiocre lot habituel du genre, par la qualité de sa réalisation et la démarche de son traitement scénaristique où l'on voit le "héros" se faire trucider par l'affreux méchant. Ce qui nous vaut un rugueux duel Trintignant / Kinski, des acteurs de toute évidence fortement imprégnés par leurs époustouflants rôles respectifs. www.cinefiches.com

  10. bima ferdinandsyah's rating of the film The Great Silence

    the final scene is WOW, just... Jesus Christ! WOW! Did *not* expect that ending. holy shit!

  11. Rohan Berry's rating of the film The Great Silence

    Jean-Louis Trintignant is a just and laconic gunslinger, whilst Klaus Kinski is a camp and vicious bounty hunter dolled up in a fur coat and leather gloves, as if auditioning for Warhol? The snowy location shooting was clearly an influence on Altman's MCCABE AND MRS MILLER. This western uses the mountain ranges that serve as its location to stunning effect; there are some really exquisite aerial shots in particular.

  12. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Great Silence

    Probabilmente la migliore pellicola firmata da Corbucci.Caratterizzazioni,interpretazioni(Kinski sempre magnifico),messa in scena,originalità (specie nel finale),musiche ed un'ambientazione cupa ed innevata:tutto è di assoluto livello per un simil-Django meno ironico e se possibile ancora più cattivo.Un vero Cult per tutti gli amanti del genere Western.Non è Leone,ma ci và vicino.....davvero notevole.4*

  13. Pymo's rating of the film The Great Silence

    The snow will purify our sins.

  14. Cbarky99's rating of the film The Great Silence

    Kinski's all the more effective here because he''s seemingly underplaying it for once, as a soft-spoken, almost satanic bounty hunter who sits comfortably at the center of a snowbound social ecosystem that relies on the murder of those uncomfortable with it, in order to sustain itself. Morricone's score is a gorgeous, knowingly sorrowful elegy.

  15. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film The Great Silence

    A brilliant brutal and uncompromising piece of movie-making.

  16. joey Noodles's rating of the film The Great Silence

    A low 4 stars, the ending, which is perfect, elevates it to that rank.

  17. Joel's rating of the film The Great Silence

    Strange and a little uneven. It feels a little laughable in parts at first but the final punch definitely elevates it above the crowd. Plus anything with Kinski quite like this is a treat of its own.

  18. Ciprian David's rating of the film The Great Silence

    My first Corbucci let me mouth wide open, probably specially because of the schocking ending. While not really familiar whit Italowesterns besides very few Leones, I kept expecting Silence to be granted a happy end. With that not happening the class-confrontation-metaphorical-level got thrown in the foreground.

  19. Ben.'s rating of the film The Great Silence

    Need a film that shits on everything the myth of the Old West stood for? Look no further.

  20. Doctor Spaceman's rating of the film The Great Silence

    Having just watched Corbucci's Django, I expected another triumphant yet unrealistic finale in The Great Silence, especially given the similarities leading up to it. I am so glad that wasn't the case. That ending left an incredible impact, I was pretty much stunned.

  21. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Great Silence

    La historia del "Silencioso" se basa en la venganza, una que parte desde la infancia y que ha dejado una marca imborrable, física y trágica. Gran protagonismo de un ambicioso Klaus Kinski. Uno de los grandes finales del spaghetti westerns.

  22. Juancaballo's rating of the film The Great Silence

    Favorite western so far. I've just been introduced to Corbucci and was a longtime fan of Leone, but this movie, this score and these characters are absolutely mesmerizing. Loved the intro... so positively sad.

  23. T. J. Mesen's rating of the film The Great Silence

    One of my favorite Westerns, beautiful and emotional. There is no defined good or evil in this West, no mythical gunslingers, no safe places in all-pervasive winter of violence.

  24. Tiago Inácio's rating of the film The Great Silence

    the other Sergio crafts an exquisite gorgeous bleak masterpiece in a breathtaking snow environment. Morricone has one of his finest soundtracks. brilliant and mandatory for every western lover
