I believe its perfect in lenght. The long time allowed leone to set up some amazing set pieces and really develope an awsome visual style. I think many people share this complaint of being to long with Once Upon a Time in the West (you should watch that too). leone I think is a master of knowing how to make a 3hr movie feel really short.
" I adore Leone, but I always found TGTBTU to be slightly over done towards the end. "Yeah, the blowing up of the bridge definitely felt off-putting at that point
"That is bullshit my friend, watch One Upon a Time in America. 4 hours, 75% of it being pointless crap that should have been edited down. Seriously, Leone figured out how to ruin a mafia movie, which I didn't think was possible.

" I think the TGTBTU is a great film, but highly over-rated. In the Man With No Name trilogy, TGTBTU is my least favourite.bows down, this sir, is the absolute truth. You forgot to mention that it also had the best performances of any western, best soundtrack, costume, cinematography lol etc etc
Popular opinion will tell you that TGTBTU is the best Western, but true Western/Leone fans, like yours truly, will tell you that the best Western ever is actually, Once Upon A Time In The West.
It is also a long film, but it has a big, Hollywood budget, and is actually filmed in the American West, as opposed to Italy's deserts. It has the most tense gun fights I've ever seen. henry Fonda is brilliant as the bad-guy, Frank; and Charles Bronson, with his beef-jerky face, tears up the screen.
