Synopsis Kim Jee-won (A TALE OF TWO SISTERS) directs this big-budget take on the Western genre that unites three of Korean cinema's most popular actors: Jung Woo-Sung, Lee Byung-hun, and Song Kang-ho. In the 1930s Manchurian desert, a search for a map brings together three very different men who seem to exemplify the characteristics of the title. In this Korean-language film, all of the actors--including the top-billed stars--performed their own stunts.3 stars out of 5 -- The most expensive Korean movie ever made....lashed together with streaks of loopy black humour.[The director] transplants Sergio Leone's enduring epic to '30s Manchuria, recasting Clint's Blondie as a laconic, rifle-toting bounty hunter...3 stars out of 5 -- Kim adds in some clever allusions to varied films like THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, APOCALYPSE NOW, and GIANT. Kim's cinematic vigor never flags...THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD's real strength is in the way it establishes what it's going to be about right from the start....Kim's inventive action sequences develop like short films, with their own plots and props...Action set pieces move from train shootout to marketplace shootout to horseback-jeep-motorcycle shootout before the inevitable three-way showdown...
