I haven't seen much non-Leone SW's, but this one is definitely not a favourite. When I saw it about a year ago, I think it was my first non-Leone SW. It turned me off from looking any further for a long time. I really didn't take well to the awful humour of Hill, especially the scene around the fountain. I also found the scenes with the Wild Bunch pretty ineffective, and lacking the tension and grandour I expected or felt was needed. Fonda will always be fantastic in my book, but he couldn't save this one for me. If it wasn't for recently seeing Django and realizing I had to see more of these films, I wouldn't even be here now.
