About the Movie
Set in the 1930s Manchurian desert where lawlessness rules and many different ethnic groups clash, three Korean men fatefully meet each other on a train. The train’s diverse passengers and imminent danger with guns and knives everywhere serves as a microcosm of the turbulent times. Do-won (JUNG Woo-sung) is a bounty hunter who tracks down any criminals with rewards on their heads. Chang-yi (LEE Byung-hun) is the leader of a group of tough-as-nails bandits. He cannot stand to be the second best. Tae-goo (SONG Kang-ho) is a train robber with nine lives. The three strangers engage in a chase across Manchuria to take possession of a map Tae-goo discovers while robbing the train. Also on the hunt for the mysterious map are the Japanese army and Asian bandits. In this unpredictable, escalating battle for the map, who will stand in the end as the winner?

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: [Director Kim Jee-woon] hits a new low with The Good, the Bad, the Weird, a hyper-violent action movie that takes the form of an Asian western.
Fresh: Kimchi Westerns, anyone?
Fresh: The Good, the Bad, the Weird may owe a lot to other films, but it is always fresh and never boring.
Fresh: With a nod and a wink to Sergio Leone, South Korean filmmaker Kim Jee-woon delivers a slam-bang western set in Manchuria after the Japanese invasion in 1931.
This is a great, great film.
Love this movie!
So glad this movie is finally available on itunes! It's a great piece on genre fusion! Song Kang Ho is brilliant.
Hilarious and awesome
This movie has some of the craziest action I've ever seen. I highly recommend it even if you hate subtitled movies (which I don't mind) but like action or comedy or spaghetti westerns
