The Good, The Bad, The Weird Clip
Exclusive: Glimpse the new Korean epic

26 January 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

It's out on February 6, but if you can't wait until then we have an exclusive clip of Korean cowboy flick The Good, The Bad, The Weird for you today.

The story is set in the Manchurian desert in the 1930s, and follows a bounty hunter, a bandit leader and a train robber, who team up to track down a mysterious map. Also on the hunt for the map are the Japanese army and yet more hostile bandits, so you know things aren't going to be easy.

This clip is action-packed, somehow managing to combine spaghetti Western with Eastern panache - and, for no good reason, a guy in a diving helmet. Hey, they promised you the Weird as well as the Good and Bad.

The Good, The Bad, The Weird has already been massively successful in its home country (and remember, the last box-office sensation out of Korea was the weird and wonderful The Host, so they know their movies). Let's hope it does as well here next week.

WOOP!
I saw this at a Korean Film Festival in Liverpool in October. It is about as perfect an action/adventure film as they get. Think of it as the cowboy lovechild of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Curse of the Black Pearl... who just happens to be Korean, somehow. I know that sounds convoluted, but I promise you it is brilliant. I'm planning to see it again, anyway. More

RE: G,B,W
from the website: i like the u.k trailer although the original korean one is better. very dismayed to see that the U.k is also getting the hideous posters that the U.S had :( i'd been hoping to get hold of a quad poster but don't think i'll bother f they look like that. anyway the clip just confirmed to me that this is going to rule :) but then i never doubted that More

A Bittersweet Life is one of favourite films so this is gonn a be a must see. Christ, just that minute clip had more original camera work and action than a handful of US action films. More

Good and Weird, but not Bad.
saw this a while back in Korea. Goes on for a BIT too long but it's got some of the best camera-work I've seen in ages. Characters are really what stand out though... More

Saw this a few months back at the London Film Festival - its awesome. Check out the director's previous films - Bittersweet Life and A Tale of Two Sisters, seems like he wants to be a Danny Boyle-type genre straddling monster. I like. More
