Iconic & timeless Spaghetti Western. Yes there is a rape scene (remember, this is the 60s so everything is much more subdued and less explicit) and the girl kills herself. I first saw this movie when I was about 3 and have loved it since. If you are sheltering your child from such things as rape, which, FYI, happen in the real world, how do you expect them to be able to take care of themselves if put in bad situations? Riddle me that, helicopter parents. The spaghetti westerns are timeless classics with amazing soundtracks, plots, acting , and cultural/artistic value. Don’t make your kid miss out on it because you’re a bad parent.

A lot more violence than you’d expect

First of all, I’d just like to point out that there is a non-explicit sexual assault and a suicide here. A villain walks in a room where a woman and her boyfriend are talking. He comes in, shoots the boyfriend, and proceeds to literally (but not violently; nothing is shown) rape her. He drops the gun on the bed. The woman grabs the gun and shoots herself; the wound is shown. Otherwise a fine western, Eastwood is great.

Second installment in Sergio Leone's fantastic trilogy.

This film is the sequel to A Fistful of Dollars, and just like its predecessor, it got an R rating. Despite that, in today's world, it would probably run somewhere between PG and PG-13. There is a lot of shooting but there is not a lot of blood. There is no inappropriate content and language is kept to a minimal. Overall, Clint Eastwood provides western fans with another fantastic film.

More violent but better quality than A Fistful of Dollars.

Another great western by Sergio Leone For a Few Dollars more follows two bounty hunters played by Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef as they work together to kill a sadistic murderer and his gang. All of the major actors in this film portray their characters terrifically. It is also includes thrilling action and is a very exciting film worth showing kids aged 12 and up.

Content Guide:'
Several characters are shot and stabbed throughout, although none of it is graphic by todays standards. A woman and a baby are killed offscreen, however it is extremely obvious what happens. In a flashback a woman is raped (it is not graphic) she then shoots herself while she is still being raped (once again not graphic but bound to disturb some viewers).
The before mentioned rape, brief nudity is also shown but this is not a concern i as there is a rape scene.
No drugs but smoking throughout, and the villain also smokes what could be a marijuana joint but this is not made clear.

Amazing Western

An amazing western better than the first. It was re-rated R. It wasn't too bad. However, there is a rape scene where not too much is shown until the camera moves down and shows the victim grabbing a gun and committing suicide while being raped. This scene is probably only about 20 seconds and it might be the reason for the R re-raiting. I'm surprised Common Sense didn't mention this.

Sergio Leone classic has some sex, violence, sexual violence. Teens and up!

"For a Few Dollars More" is a western by master-of-the-genre, Sergio Leone.
Being part of the "Dollar trilogy" (a series of western movies by Sergio Leone, starring Clint Eastwood), you need to know that you don't need to see "Fistful of Dollars" or "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" in order to follow this movie.
But if you have seen the others, you know what to expect:
Unusual cinematography, superb music by Ennio Morricone and a cool western scenery. "For a Few Dollars More" is exactly what you can call a well-made movie. It is nearly perfect, featuring memorable scenes, such as the hat-shootout, and fitting music. A very interesting villain with an even more interesting background story, and two sly protagonists on a neck-and-neck race make this a superb movie, with superb characters.
Like the other works of Sergio Leone, this movie was a strong influence on the entire western genre. The theme music became as famous as the movie itself, and is very catchy.
In conclusion, "For a Few Dollars More" may be a step behind "Once Upon a Time in the West", but still is a very good western movie!
As for the age restriction, you need to know that there are many, many shootings, like we know from western movie.
Thematic elements including the villain raping a woman, but as you can see on my and CSM's recommended age, the sexual activity is not explicit. They are clothed and it is not graphic - it is quite possible that this goes above younger viewer's heads. I recommend this for viewers 12 and up, it really is not a graphic movie.

Clint Eastwood western is slow and boring at times; may not entertain kids.

This is an OK western. It has good special effects and interesting characters. There are no positive messages or role models, as what the characters do, they do for themselves. Some violence and drugs. There is also a non-explicit rape scene. Ok for more mature tweens, if it even interests them. 3 stars.

Great movie

This was a great movie very interesting. The bad guy is a like the Joker from batman. There is a scene of rape, but it is only forceful kissing, not much. She ends up killing herself. Other wise there is not much violence, or language. There is smoking.

The sequel to the classic

This Film is the second part of the Dollars trilogy. Clint Eastwood is still brilliant as The Man with no Name (or Manco) and Lee Van Cleef plays his role, Colonel Douglas Mortimer also brilliant. The movie is the most “harmless” in the Trilogy. Only thing that happens is El Indio smoking a drug and him raping Mortimer’s sister. It isn’t shown much so it isn’t that brutal.

The fact that this classic has three stars is an embarrassment

The best western ever made!

I personaly love this classic spagettie western and think tha it is the best out of all three of sergio leone's man with no name movies.
Though the plotline can be a little confusing sometimes with all the flashbacks, and it may confuse younger viewers and some older one's to as well as the fact there is very little taking. But that said I like it that way because u have to pay attention to what's going on on screen. I think it is all surpassed by the solid story line and captivating fight scenes.
