DVD Review: The Good The Bad The Weird

From genre-swapping director Kim Jee-woon, the man behind cult classics A Tale Of Two Sisters and A Bittersweet Life, comes The Good The Bad The Weird, this time a foray into Oriental Westerns. When a map is unearthed, said to lead to untold treasure, three men become entangled in the chase to the location of the prize. One man is a chancer criminal, who stumbled upon the map while robbing a wealthy train, another is a professional mobster, hired to steal the map, and the last is a vigilante, hunting down the criminal mob lord. Though too long in the middle act, The Good The Bad The Weird is a true rollercoaster adventure, packed with action, gun-fights and a wonderfully ecclectic accompanying soundtrack. Every bit as good as Jee-woon’s previous films, which is high praise indeed.
