The Good, The Bad, The Weird is a modern spaghetti western, majorly and obviously influenced by Sergio Leone's filmmaking. This movie is about a stylish, breathtaking, bloody and hilarious journey of three guys who seek for a map treasure and, above all, this movie is about their rivalries. I loved this movie and its unique soul and style.
A week has passed since I watched The Good, The Bad, The Weird, and I'm still thrilled by the movie's color and fluid motion. I particularly loved how Kim Ji-woon cut less for his action shots, choosing instead to make the distance by sending the camera soaring and zooming through space.
this movie is spicer than thai chicken! get urself a clip of the train sequence and have urself a good party. this guy who sells rice cakes on it attacks his customers, i dont know about you but i think thats bad marketing, this guys a real weirdo, also theres some emo guy chasing him down, he whistles at him, must be a queer, but nuff said this spicy thai chicken is a little to oily so its only a 8.5 for mytastebuds
I think I possibly had too high of an expectation for this one. All in all, a very enjoyable film but not much else. The small nods to Leone are all but few sadly. This film was more Michael Bay then it was Spaghetti Western.
Lot's of fun, with epic scale and some laughs here and there. I had a smile on my face the whole time as this was a nice take on the genre. I would have to say Kim Ji-woon is probably one of my favourite Korean directors.
