Inspired by Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti Western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, this South Korean action epic is set in 1930s Manchuria, where two rival bandits and a bounty hunter all vie with each other (and with the Japanese army and a Chinese criminal gang) for possession of a treasure map. This Eastern Western is a spirited, glorious spectacle that fills the big, wide screen with kung-fu cowboys, horses, train robberies, chases, and tense standoffs. "Fluid, dizzying camera moves and judicious CGI, ravishing set design and exhilarating action. This is filmmaking as rodeo ride...Thrilling as hell while it lasts." -Time Out Film Guide. Subtitles.
