Film: The Good, the Bad, the Weird

The Good, the Bad, the Weird is a colorful Korean film that plays omage to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and a self described "Kimchi Western" by Wordof God. While the original is an epic Spaghetti Western, the remake is a more fast-paced and less serious action film.

Three Koreans in exile cross paths in 1930s Manchuria during the Japanese occupation. Park Chang-yi, the hitman/bandit leader, is hired to steal a treasure map from a Japanese official, but a train robber, Yoon Tae-goo, beats him to the punch — only to be captured by a Bounty Hunter, Park Do-won. Tae-goo talks Do-won into helping him search for the treasure instead, and they set off through the desert together, with Chang-yi's gang and the Japanese army in pursuit. During the action-filled chase that follows, each of the three turns out to have some hidden motives.

Compare and Contrast with Sukiyaki Western Django.
