Three men. One map. Much gun play.
Song Kang-ho (Lady Vengeance, Thirst) stars as “The Weird” in Kim Jee-woon’s Manchurian Western The Good, The Bad, The Weird, which is of course an homage to Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Instead of the American West (by way of Spain), it’s set along the lawless Chinese-Korean border in the 1930s.
I’ve kind of had my eye on this one since it debuted to solid reviews at Cannes. It looks like fun. Check out the trailer after the jump.
