When an Irish terrorist with an obsession for dynamite teams up with a Mexican peasant-turned-revolutionary, the results are explosive! Starring Oscar winner Rod Steiger and western veteran James Coburn, A Fistful of Dynamite is an action-packed tale of power and politics from the acclaimed director of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, A Fistful of Dollars ad For a Few Dollars More! Juan Miranda (Steiger) is a cigar-chomping, salt-of-the-earth peasant with a Robin Hood heart. John Mallory (Coburn) is a dynamite-tossing Irish revolutionary who has fled to Mexico to practise his skills. Together, they're a devilishly volatile mix of anti-establishment philosophies and violent tendencies as they attempt to liberate political prisoners, defend their compatriots against a well-equipped militia, and risk their lives on a train filled with explosives!
dynamite not dollars!

Not in to westerns? Think again! Pathos, comedy, fantastic score, Coburn, explosives, masterful close-up camera-work and the IRA of all things. This film will change your mind. Lovable and truly engaging.
