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.
