"Life is chasing and being chased." - Park Do-won aka "The Good". A simple plot married with style for days, bullets by the bucket load, finely tuned continuous shots, sparking dialogue, charismatic actors, lush cinematography, a genuine Spaghetti Western score, a hefty dose of humor and a pinch of historico-cultural backdrop - what fun!
Stylish, colorful, and bad ass! Non stop action and amazing scenery. The language barrier between characters gets confusing at points but only a slight knock on the movie as a whole. The sets were perfect and had life of their own. Not to mention it was funnier than anything American cinema is pumping out. Excellent.
The first Eastern Western I've seen that takes the core concept and adds a new dimension without stepping too far from the original style or themes. Fantastic performances from the three leads, beautiful locations and sets, occasionally cheesy dialogue, but ultimately a funny, action packed movie that I'd happily watch again.
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.
