The Good, The Bad, The Weird Review

Posted by Josh Samford On March - 27 - 2009

Hey everybody! Got a new one for ya, and this one turned out to be very special to me. Combining so many things I love about really great genre cinema and crafting this odd new hybrid world that I have never seen in cinema. It is South Korean’s The Good, The Bad, The Weird – which as you might guess, is a spaghetti western inspired Eastern-Western. An absolutely amazing tour de force of a action cinema unlike anything I have ever seen before. Not everyone will be drawn to it quite like I am, but I think other genre geeks will spaz out just as much as I ddi. Check out the review, NOW!

The Plot: Three men in Manchuria are about to embark on an epic journey. First is The Good, Park Do-won (Jung Woo-sung) a traveling bounty hunter from Korea who is after the price laid on the head of on The Weird, Yoon Tae-goo (Song Kang-ho) a chubby wandering psychopath who carries two guns and steals as much as he can. Yoon runs into his fortune when robbing a train that holds a map to a buried treasure that everyone is looking for, including The Bad: Park Chang-yi (Lee Byung-hun, soon to be Storm Shadow in the GI Joe movie!), a homicidal gunslinger with a vendetta against the world. These three men have a great treasure that bonds them, but only one of them will walk away the victor of this quest. The question is, who will it be? The Good, The Bad or The Weird.
