YesAsia Editorial Description

Korea's biggest film of 2008, acclaimed kimchi western The Good, The Bad, The Weird comes to DVD with sky-high anticipation and buzz. A Bittersweet Life director Kim Ji Woon's wildly entertaining remake of the Sergio Leone classic The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly transplants the rollicking tale of gun-slinging anti-heroes to the Wild East, with tour de force performances from three of Korea's finest leading men. Forming the unbeatable title trio, Jung Woo Sung (A Moment To Remember) plays the relentless bounty hunter, Lee Byung Hun (A Bittersweet Life) takes on his first villain role as the stylishly menacing gangster, and award-winning actor Song Kang Ho (The Host) is all manic charisma as the eccentric bandit. Premiering at the 61st Cannes Film Festival, The Good, The Bad, The Weird unfolds an over-the-top adventure on the vast desert terrain of 1930s Manchuria, complete with horseback chases, three-way shootouts, train robberies, and action spectacle of giddy proportions.

With their homeland under Japanese occupation, many Koreans flee to Manchuria in the 1930s to make a fast living in no-man's land, including notorious train bandit Dae Goo (Song Kang Ho), the Weird. While pulling a train heist, Dae Goo swipes a treasure map from a Japanese official. Ruthless gangster Chang Yi (Lee Byung Hun), the Bad, is also after the map, and bounty hunter Do Won (Jung Woo Sung), the Good, is after Chang Yi. Dae Goo manages to escape the ensuing train shootout and hightail it with the map, but both Chang Yi and Do Won are in hot pursuit, not to mention the Japanese army and rival bandits.

This edition comes with the International Cut version of The Good, The Bad, The Weird, plus a bonus disc with interviews, making of, and trailer.

導  演:【三更】金知雲
演  員:【美麗的日子】李秉憲、【愛無間】鄭雨盛、【駭人怪物】宋康昊

人煙罕至的沙漠,變成槍林彈雨的戰場…

道垣(鄭雨盛 飾)是個追捕罪犯的賞金獵人,朴正義(李炳憲飾)是個殺人無數的冷血強盜頭子,尹泰久(宋康昊飾)是個九命不死的火車大盜。這三個陌生人在滿洲國四處追逐,只為了爭奪尹泰久在搶火車的時候拿到的一份藏寶圖。同時在尋找這份神秘藏寶圖的人,還有日軍和亞洲的盜匪,眾人爭得你死我活,最後,在一片荒漠中,三人終於面臨最後的生死對決!最後的贏家會是誰呢?

演員介紹:
The Good道垣(鄭雨盛飾)是名追捕惡徒以換取懸賞的賞金獵人,顧名思義他應是站在正義這一方,但其實他的行事作風也極其辣手,面對敵人鮮少手下留情。既身為「獵人」,身為神槍手的他不常主動出擊,多是處在能縱觀全局的後方,耐著性子冷眼旁觀事態發展,像是躲在草叢間屏住呼吸狙擊獵物的老練獵人,再在稍縱即逝的絕佳時機發動雷霆一擊,得手後立刻抽身而退、毫不戀棧戰局。

片中他多藏身在荒漠砂丘後方,靜觀遠方追逐時所捲起的滾滾砂塵;又或者手繫繩索高吊在半空中,居高臨下地對地面匪徒展開掃射,著實是彈無虛發,加上那一副鮮少露出喜怒哀樂各式情感,多半面無表情、神色自若的堅毅臉龐,在在點出了他那冷靜無比的獵人性格。

The Bad朴正義(李秉憲飾)則穿梭於槍林彈雨中而面不改色,反是親陷敵陣更能讓他感受到那份鮮明的刺激與快感。身為盜匪頭子的他志不在金銀財寶,只為求親手一攫天下無敵的最強名號,畢生信奉的唯有力量二字。朴正義外表俊俏,身手也極為敏捷,更帶有幾分倨傲的邪氣,一旦出手必見血光,進退之間快如閃電,不論拔槍或耍刀都屬上乘。尤屬近身戰最是拿手這一點,正展現出他勇於以身試險的狂傲以及無比自信。

The Weird尹泰久(宋康昊飾)雖然外貌看來毫不起眼,時而跌跌撞撞、時而連滾帶爬,無論徒手搏鬥、力量或槍術都不見過人之處,但奇特的是再兇險的局面、再龐大的對戰陣容,他也總能化險為夷而落得毫髮無傷,屢出奇招而順力擊退敵手。炸藥、潛水鐘、鐵板等隨手撿拾到的物品在他手上使將出來,都都成了妙用無窮的退敵良方。永遠瘋瘋癲癲、不時插科打諢,更帶著幾分童心玩興,英文片名中「The Weird」這名號他確實是當之無愧。

Professional Review of "The Good,The Bad,The Weird (DVD) (2-Disc Deluxe Edition) (Taiwan Version)"

February 12, 2009

This professional review refers to The Good, The Bad, The Weird (DVD) (Special Edition) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
Over the course of his career Kim Ji Woon has become one of the most unique voices in South Korea. Sure, he doesn't have the name recognition here of Oldboy's Park Chan Wook, but has Park ever told the tale of a bland businessman turned masked wrestler? Told a twisty ghost story? Gone for gangster revenge?

Okay he's done the gangster thing - sort of - but Kim has a much more diverse resume and has earned himself a reputation as one of the most technically skilled directors in the world the good old fashioned way: by actually being exactly that. Kim's a wizard with a camera as proven by the atmospheric world of A Tale of Two Sisters and the jaw dropping action of A Bittersweet Life. So the reaction to news that Kim was taking a stab at a straight up western? Glee!

The film is The Good, The Bad, The Weird and rumblings about the film running over time and over budget - so far over budget that the original production company couldn't handle the costs and it moved to a bigger outfit - were not nearly enough to dampen enthusiasm for the film and it won some strong reviews when a rough cut premiered in Cannes and has gone on to become a huge hit in its native Korea. But does it live up to the hype?

The Good, The Bad, The Weird is pure spectacle. Kim built enormous standing sets for the film and puts them to great use, creating a totally immersive world for a virtually non-stop string of chases and shootouts. Production values are gorgeous and the staging energetic. There is always - absolutely always - something impressive to look at on screen. It doesn't take long, though, to realize that something very basic has changed here in the way Kim approaches film making.

Sure, he's never been shy of spectacle in the past but he has always started from his characters and worked his way out from there, making sure the action comes from the characters rather than ruling them. Here, though, he takes exactly the opposite path, building the film purely around his sets and action sequences. Need a big train robbery? Check. Three way shootout? Check. Knife wielding maniac? Check. Gun fight carried out by bounty hunters swinging on ropes high above the village streets? Oh, god yes, check. The characters, though, the element that is normally his strongest suit? They're not quite an afterthought but they're not far off. Here's the basic story. We're in Manchuria during Japan's expansionist era. Korea is under Japanese rule and many - gangsters, outlaws and loyalists - have fled to the Chinese province to escape their control. The Chinese aren't crazy about having them there but are more concerned with the fact that the Japanese are now using Korea as a base to push ever farther west into Chinese territory. It's a wild west, indeed, though far off in the east. And in this world there is a map, a fabled map leading to some unknown treasure. The Japanese want it and are willing to pay handsomely to get it. The gangster who owns it sees the chance to make a huge profit by selling and then promptly stealing it back to claim the treasure himself and hires a notorious gangster - the titular Bad - to rob the train the exchange is taking place on immediately after the sale.

The problem? Another two bit thug - the Weird - takes down the train shortly before the Bad arrives and further complicating matters is the presence of the Good, a bounty hunter who wants to claim the prizes on both thieves heads. And that's the movie. Bad wants map, Weird has map, Good wants both Bad and Weird. Yes, each of the characters has actual names but they're so barely fleshed out that the titles seem more appropriate somehow. We get the characters and setup within the first ten minutes and from that point on it's a non stop succession of chases and fight sequences.

What saves the film from becoming completely shallow - and I'm not against a few empty calories when there's as much eye candy on display as there is here - is the presence of two of Korea's very finest actors in a pair of the lead roles. Song Kang Ho - who you may recognize from monster hit monster movie The Host - is a bundle of brilliant, eccentric energy as the Weird while Lee Byung Hyun - soon to make his Hollywood debut in GI Joe - is nothing but stylish menace as the Bad. Kim has worked with both actors in the past and drawn out some of their very best performances and that is once again the case here, with both transcending the weak material to turn in charismatic, supremely watchable performances. The Good? He's alright, too, but clearly outclassed by this pair.

So, Kim's biggest film may not be his best but it's pretty damn entertaining and absolutely gorgeous on the big screen. It's already been bought for video release in North America but do yourself a favor and see this one the way it's meant to be seen: you need to go large to fully appreciate what Kim's done.

A Pretty & Artistic Comic Book? 9/10 Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I bought this movie mainly for the reason that Lee Byung Hun and Jung Woo Sung are the leading actors. Like Kara, I'm not a fan of western or cowboy movies and so I didn't have much expectations. I watched this movie like I was reading a comic book. I didn't pay much attention to character developments because my attentions were mostly on the screen with its colorful and artistic designs. The director is artistic and all three of his antagonists were well chosen. He did spent a lot of efforts. In my opinion, the movie could have been better if it was shorten and less lavish in its style.

Since Mr. Kevin Kennedy mentioned the rock star hair style, I just want to add that Lee Byung Hun is one of the best actors and he can be anything that he wants to be on screen. Actually, only a few men can carry that hairstyle, Lee Byung Hun doesn't look good with it! :)

The Good, the Bad, the Overlong Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
"The Good The Bad The Weird" is great, rollicking, noisy fun ... for a while. Chang Yi (Lee Byung Hun) has been hired to steal a map, and he is a very bad man who always gets his way. However, the bandit Dae Goo (Song Kang Ho) unwittingly beats Chang Yi to the punch; he manages to steal the map with no knowledge of its significance. Bounty hunter Do Won (Jung Woo Sung) is hoping to claim the bounty on uber-baddie Chang Yi, but also wouldn't mind cashing in on the relatively minor price on Dae Goo's head. With that premise, this movie is off to the races, mixing up equal parts of Sergio Leone westerns, Errol Flynn swashbucklers, "Once Upon a Time in Corea", and "Dachimawa Lee".

Each of the three leads carves out a memorable character: Lee Byung Hun masters a cold-blooded, menacing swagger, Jung Woo Sung carries off heroic feats of derring-do, and Song Kang Ho bumbles his way through a wild assortment of adventures. The film holds the audience's attention through its innovative action sequences, comic bookish characters, and assortment of Wild East settings. However, roughly ninety minutes into the movie, the film devolves into a NOISY CHASE SEQUENCE THROUGH THE MANCHURIAN DESERT -- A CHASE SEQUENCE SO EXCRUCIATINGLY OVER-THE-TOP AND MIND-NUMBINGLY LONG THAT I WAS BLUDGEONED INTO UNCARING SUBMISSION.

By the time the film arrived at its climactic three-way showdown, I just didn't care anymore; the movie had gone on too long and become too ridiculous. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed the first ninety minutes and, for that, I can recommend "The Good The Bad The Weird". (Minor nitpicking: Did anyone in 1930s Manchuria actually sport those contemporary "rock star" haircuts? And Glenn Miller's "A String of Pearls" became a hit in 1941; Chang Yi could not have played that record back in the 1930s.)

Very good! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The other review pretty much covered all the basics of this movie with its impressive acting and amazing directing, but I have to give props to the movie as a whole (if that makes sense). I know that it's a Western-based film and I can't stand Westerns, but this movie was definitely very entertaining to watch and I was happy I finally got the time to do so! I am, however, very disappointed that the only region available is Region 3 which means it is not available to watch here unless I get a special DVD player (which would be worth it). Slightly depressing, but it's not going to affect my opinion of the movie.

It's hard to describe how good the movie was because there are just certain components that a viewer looks for and I think that this movie captured my desires and compressed them into under three hours.

Now for some little details. The Good was portrayed very well by Jung WooSung and I liked how he brought the character to life and The Bad played by Lee ByungHun was also very impressive! I've seen him in other movies (likewise with Jung WooSung), but this is by far the better ones, I think, because it was more entertaining with all the action. Even though those two guys were very good at what they did, I think that The Weird portrayed by Song KangHo was clearly the most entertaining of the three because he just brought the humour into the character while at the same time being entirely serious. There's just something about these three actors chosen to be in this movie together that made it that much better than it would've been if there was a different combination of actors.

I don't know, now I'm just rambling, but I really did enjoy this movie and Westerns (of any language) are not my genre of choice. This movie is going to make me rethink that assessment.

One hell of a ride... Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Been looking forward to watching this film for for some time now and whilst it's far from perfect it was still one hell of a ride and definitely worth the wait. The plot is basically a Korean The Good, The Bad And The Ugly where the Good (Woo-sung Jung), the Bad (Byung-hun Lee) and the Weird (Kang-ho Song) are all racing to get a map which leads to a hiding to a hidden treasure. All three leads played their roles well but as always it was Kang-ho Song who steals the show.

Ji-woon Kim has once again done an excellent job directing this and just like his previous movies he’s managed to come up with some great camera shots and set pieces that’ll stand up to Hollywood any day of the week. This is probably one the few movies where I can truly say this but this film is filled with non stop action. Usually when I watch a movie like this I expect a 5-10 minutes of gun fight and then 30 minutes where the plot unravels, but this was the complete opposite, here the battles seemed to go on for 20 minutes at a time. This is however where the film succeeds and fails; whilst the movie itself was loud, fun and entertaining I found that the plot and characters lacked any real depth which is a shame considering the film it’s inspired by.

Overall this is the equivalent of a summer blockbuster; it’s big, it’s got loads of action and will leave you with a smile on your face. It’s fun to see all the scenes paying homage to Leone’s Dollars trilogy but unfortunately mainly due to a wafer-thin plot The Good, The Bad, The Weird fails to capture the emotion and heart of a true western.
