The Good, the Bad, the Weird

Korea 2010. 127min. Action/comedy. Director: Kim Jee-Woon. Korean with English subtitles.

40 Days at Base Camp still photo

As the Korean peninsula falls into the hands of Japanese imperialists (1930s), Koreans seek refuge in the vast wilderness of Manchuria. A mysterious bounty hunter (“The Good”), a cold-blooded hitman (“The Bad”), and a wily thief (“The Weird”) vie for an elusive map that could lead them to a buried treasure from the Qing Dynasty.

This giddy mashup of Sergio Leone’s spaghetti westerns, George Lucas’ Star Wars, and Spielberg’s Indiana Jones is a guns-ablazing, widescreen Korean spectacle, packed with action, politics, and off-centre humour.
