"A riot of comic action done with enthusiastic panache. The Good, the Bad, the Weird is a showstopping take on spaghetti Westerns that's full of audacious staging, not to mention a jam-packed, action-centric storyline that throws in everything and a fistful of dynamite. A better kickoff for the summer movie season is frankly difficult to imagine."—Austin Chronicle

An energetic update of Sergio Leone's westerns, The Good, the Bad, the Weird is the most expensive film ever made in South Korea and also one of the most entertaining. In the 1930s in the Manchurian desert, where lawlessness rules and many different ethnic groups clash, three Korean men fatefully meet on a train. Do-won ("The Good") is a bounty hunter who tracks down any criminals with rewards on their heads. Chang-yi ("The Bad") is the leader of a group of tough-as-nails bandits. Tae-goo ("The Weird") (the great Song Kang-ho, star of The Host) is a train robber with nine lives. The three strangers engage in a thrilling chase across Manchuria to take possession of a map Tae-goo discovers while robbing the train. Also on the hunt for the mysterious map are the Japanese army and Asian bandits. The enjoyable and thrilling adventure shows why Korea currently has one of the most vibrant, acclaimed, and popular film industries in the world. (129 mins., 35mm)
