Product Description

Korean director Kim Jin-Woon pays homage to the master of the spaghetti western, Sergio Leone, with this action-packed adventure film set in 1930s Japanese-occupied Manchuria.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Cheers For the Manchurian Western. 10 Jan 2011
By Bob Salter TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Well, blow me down with a feather! Just when I start feeling clever and think I know almost all there is to know about westerns, something yet again comes along to emphatically remind me that 'I dont know nothin'. A Manchurian western! Surely someone is having a joke! You cannot be serious! A quick check on the internet with Korea film archive, proves that there was indeed a Korean sub-genre of films called 'Manchurian westerns' which were made in the 60's and early 70's. They were set along China's border with Korea in the 1930's, during the era of Japanese occupation that made the area ripe pickings for outlaws, carpetbaggers and any opportunist on the make. In short the sort of characters you find populating your average western. Although many of these films were successful in Korea they never made it onto the global stage.

Good on director Kim Jee-Woon for reviving interest in a lost little piece of Korean film history. But in so doing he has also managed to create both a commercially successful and critically acclaimed film. Something nobody thought possible in the Korean film industry. The director of course openly plagiarises Sergio Leone's epic Spaghetti western, "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", the title itself inspired by that great film. The story follows three outlaws as they battle for possession of a treasure map, in where else but thirties Manchuria. The Good (Jung Woo-sung), is a sharpshooting bounty hunter. The Bad (Lee Byung-hun, is simply very very bad indeed, and oozes bad from every pore. The Weird (Song Kang-ho), is a charismatic and eccentric thief, who happens to get his hands on an extremely valuable map. The stage is set for an almost non stop fun filled action fest. Who will get the treasure?

5.0 out of 5 stars Weird & Wonderful "Western". 16 July 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Kim Jee-Woon`s The Good,The Bad ,The Weird owes more than a passing nod to the influence of the great Sergio Leone. As in Tarantino`s Kill Bill homage to the Master, the style & mood of this movie has paid it`s dues. The story is a simple one, 3 men competing with eachother for the posession of a treasure map that will make the lucky owner rich. Western mythology has been transported to 30`s, Japanese occupied Manchuria, which seems entirely populated by bandits, cut-throats & thieves. When, in turn, they all learn of the map`s existence, the screen is filled with hundreds of desperate men hurtling across the sun scorched desert wastelands in hot pursuit. The movie is skilfully directed with exceptional cinematography & utterly original in it`s quirky, off centre humour & slant on the western genre. Action & violence are copious, as just about every weapon in the arsenal-and then some- is used to increase the sky high body count in just about every way possible & impossible. The Blu-ray picture is pin sharp, giving a vibrant,detailed & impressive colour scheme.Audio is crisp & clear with plenty of muscle in the bass which will give the speakers a good workout.There are a large amount of impressive & informative extras on just about every aspect of an outstanding production. Everything you wanted to know about the movie is there.It`s a wild, funny action packed movie which has taken from it`s influences & twisted & turned them into a highly original, visually beautiful & well acted film. It`s an outstanding disc in every way which I highly recommend.

By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
I eyed this film with suspicion when I saw the trailers. And when I picked up a copy to watch I really wasn't sure what to expect, but from the opening scene it's fantastic!

Right away it sets out it's stall with a stunning set piece. A sequence of events not 30 seconds into the film that is beautiful to watch in so many ways: The direction was incredible. The colours were vibrant. The action exciting and original.

This was a theme that was to carry on throughout the whole of the film. The scenery was stunning, the costumes and wardrobes were mad-cap, colourful and as varied as the characters. The action too, was unique, exciting and well executed.

Blu Ray is definitely the perfect platform for this film - the Hi Def format made the, already incredible, array of texture and colours on screen come alive and I'm happy to report that it was an excellent Blu Ray transfer that did the director's vision justice.

There was another element to this film though - besides its stunning action and being beautiful experience for the eyes - and that was comedy. Sometimes, humour in Asian cinema seems to be on a very different level, but the humour in this film really hit the mark.

It had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion, and that was in due to no small part to one member of the cast (the weird) who really does have a gift it seems, for comic timing. The other characters were great but he really stole the show.

However, besides the 3 main actors, there was a vast supporting cast of various characters who all did an excellent job and there was much to be enjoyed in every scene of this film from start to finish.
