THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD, a deliriously over-the-top "Oriental Western" is a loving, virtually non-stop action tribute to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. In the 1930s Manchurian desert, where lawlessness rules and ethnic groups clash, three Korean men fatefully meet each other on a train. The Good (Jung Woo-sung) is a bounty hunter who tracks down criminals with rewards on their heads. The Bad (Lee Byung-hun) is the leader of a group of bandits and can't stand to be second best. The Weird (Song Kang-ho, The Host) is a train robber with nine lives. The three strangers engage in a chase across Manchuria to take possession of a map The Weird discovers while robbing the train. Also on the hunt for the mysterious map are the Japanese army and Asian bandits. In an unpredictable, escalating battle for the map, who will stand in the end as the winner? Never be sure who's good, bad or weird! Directed and co-written by Kim Jee-woon (A Tale of Two Sisters). (South Korea, 2008)

"It's masterfully directed...Unapologetically goofy, absurdly attenuated, brilliantly paced, and backed by a rousing musical score." -- Eugene Novikov, Cinematical

"Cool and outrageous. Each fight scene is a perfect blend of comedy, thrilling choreography, and excellent scoring. An excellent example of the energy and originality emerging in Korean cinema." -- Kevin Buist, Spout.com

"This is filmmaking as rodeo ride...thrilling as hell." -- Tom Huddleson, Time Out London

The film’s running time is 130 minutes; it is not rated.
