THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD
For those that have been disappointed with the recent summer action blockbuster slate, consider The Good, The Bad, The Weird the antidote. The film is a Korean tribute to spaghetti westerns, set into motion by a classic MacGuffin: a treasure map. Three strange dudes go after the treasure, and chaos ensues. It’s a simple, unchallenging format—but holy hell is it a load of fun. The film offers just the right blend of old school style and off-the-wall Korean humor, and the action set pieces are as creative as they are brilliantly choreographed. So often we’re forced to endure an incomprehensible flurry of trashing limbs and nightmarish editing, but The Good, The Bad, The Weird keeps its action grounded by setting the stage early, and always letting you know where the characters are as they violently pummel through it.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
