Cowboy image is quite a hit both in the past and in present time. There was countable number of films that were made on the backdrop of cowboy till date. Even though the count is less, the impact that the cowboy movies made was quite huge.
There are lots of genres in movies like comedy, romance, love, sad, action, animation etc. Rom-com movies are quite common movies in all languages, but what makes the audience run to the theatres in huge number are action movies. Action even though is considered as a violent act and least encouraged in real lives, it was given a golden seat when made into movies.
People irrespective of the gender have a great following for action movies. The craze is not to enact the same action scenes in the movie in real life, but to at least watch them on big screen and satisfy the soul imagining them as the protagonist and their enemy as the antagonist (winks).
There are trend setters in action movies, which were the inspiration for most of the action movies of present time. When we watch those old action movies, which have set the trend we can recollect the same pattern of action scenes in new genre of action movies too. There is one such action movie that is an all-time hit and inspiration for action movies. The movie is The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is an Italian movie that hit the theatres in 1996. It is an Italian epic Spaghetti Western film directed by Sergio Leone. The star cast of the movie includes Clint Eastwood as the Good, Lee Van Cleef as the Bad, and Eli Wallach as the Ugly.
The screenplay was written by Age, Luciano Vincenzoni and Leone, who is the director of the film. Wonderful technical cast has worked for the movie. The director of photography was Tonino Delli Colli.
Theme song for The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Ennio Morricone composed the background score or the theme song for the movie. The theme song of the movie is quite a huge hit till date and no other music director till date dared to change the sound track for a plot of cowboy.
Irrespective of the country and irrespective of the language the same cowboy soundtrack was being used for all movies that plot around a cowboy. It is quite an achievement for the music director Ennio Morricone who composed this theme.
Stunts and gunfights
The film and the director of the film were named for long shots and close-up cinematography. The violence used in this movie is quite violent. The gunfights were very stylistic and very much adopted by next generation movies.
As I said earlier, the main song theme, which is composed on the title of the movie has gained a lot of popularity and can be said as a evergreen theme for all the cowboy backdrop movies.
The film made a good market and was a grand success in the theaters. As it is the first movie that was made with such huge action packed sequences and violence it has first faced critical reception,
but in later years it gained huge popularity form the audience and critics. This trend setter movie is now seen as a example of the Western film genre and is considered as one of the best action films of all time.
