I can't seem to find a website for The Good, The Bad, The Weird so I figured I'd steer everybody over to the film's official UK and Irish website. It has a picture gallery, trailer, and synopsis of the film. You can also order the Region 2 DVD or Blu-ray for whatever reason you'd want to do that. Something else that made even more interested in seeing this film is the fact that it is directed by the same guy who did one of the greatest Asian horror films I've ever seen - A Tale of Two Sisters. I was literally crawling up on the top of my couch while watching that film.
Set in the 1930s Manchurian desert where lawlessness rules and many different ethnic groups clash, three Korean men fatefully meet each other on a train. The train's diverse passengers and imminent danger with guns and knives everywhere serves as a microcosm of the turbulent times. Do-won is a bounty hunter who tracks down any criminals with rewards on their heads. Chang-yi is the leader of a group of tough-as-nails bandits. He cannot stand to be the second best. Tae-goo is a train robber with nine lives. The three strangers engage in a 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. In this unpredictable, escalating battle for the map, who will stand in the end as the winner?
The Good, The Bad, The Weird was directed by Kim Jee-Woon and stars Jung Woo-sung, Lee Byeong-heon, Song Kang-ho, Ryu Seun-su, and Zhang Qi.
The movie opens in a limited release this Friday, April 9th.
