The Good, The Bad, The Weird

Friday, April 23 - Saturday, May 15, 2010

A rip-roaring update of classic widescreen Spaghetti Westerns, this action extravaganza of lawless 1930s Manchuria centers upon three strangers — played by Korea’s reigning superstars — who meet fatefully on a train: an implacable bounty hunter (Jung Woo-sung), the merciless leader of a group of bandits (Lee Byung-hun) and a robber with nine lives (Song Kang-ho/The Host). When a mysterious map surfaces, they pursue each other across the desert to claim it, with the Japanese army and a horde of thieves trailing behind them.
