Angel Eyes (Sentenza in the original Italian version), also known as "The Bad", is the primary antagonist in Sergio Leone's legendary 1966 western film Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly). He is a traitorous and cruel assassin who crosses path with the other two titular characters, all looking for a stash of Confederate Gold. He was portrayed by the late Lee Van Cleef, and has become one of the most iconic bad guys in film history.
A much darker counterpart of Blondie, Angel Eyes is a relentless, dangerous and greedy bounty hunting outlaw. Unlike Blondie, who despite being a bounty hunter does have a sense of honor and sometimes does the right thing, Angel Eyes is callous, traitorous and cold. Even after forming a partnership with Blondie to find the gold after sending Tuco away to be executed, Angel Eyes is very quick to betray others on a whim, which is seen when he sends his men to kill Blondie once he reunites with Tuco. Angel Eyes is, ultimately, willing to do anything to make a profit at the expense of other people's lives.
