A giddy mashup of Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns and Lucas and Spielberg's Indiana Jones romps, this guns-a-blazing wide-screen Korean hit offers a nuttily staged, beautifully filmed, but kind of brainless homage to old-school Hollywood.

Director/co-writer Kim certainly enjoys ransacking genres. We're holding out for his remake of Gone with the Wind.

A better kickoff for the summer movie season is, frankly, difficult to imagine.

As vigorously staged as it all is -- sometimes confusingly, occasionally with camera-torqueing flair and impressive stuntwork -- the urge to thrill grows wearisome.

Can you imagine "Raiders of the Lost Ark" directed by Sergio Leone? If you can, or if you think it's a bizarrely fun idea, check out "The Good, the Bad, the Weird."

Goes for shallow pop instead of narrative depth. It's a lot of fun before it wears you out, and it wears you out sooner than it should.

... the whole, as they say, is more than the sum of its parts. The result is sheer invigoration.

Kim fills up his vast Gobi Desert location with stunts and chases where Leone in his wisdom knew when stillness and empty space were required. But be patient: in the final, triangular showdown, Kim does justice to the master.

Much too long and doesn't always seem to know what it's doing or where it's going, but for an hour at least it carries a serious bang.

[Director Kim Jee-woon] hits a new low with The Good, the Bad, the Weird, a hyper-violent action movie that takes the form of an Asian western.

The Good, the Bad, the Weird may owe a lot to other films, but it is always fresh and never boring.

It's hard to knock any movie that opens with an eye-popping train robbery, followed by a balls-out siege, and then a super-cool heist.

A frenzied action movie, strangely seriocomic piece, and large-scale theme park stunt show all rolled into one bizarre oater, riding a unexpectedly epic arc of heroism and villainy

A slavish, supercharged riff on Sergio Leone's epic three-the-hard-way spaghetti Western, Kim Ji-woon's all-star spectacle wastes little time in lighting a fire under its unholy trinity's derrieres.

Kim's filmmaking is generally cartoonish in a bad sense, as he squanders his set pieces, flashbacks, and other attention-getting with sometimes downright wretched staging.

...made the old-fashioned way relying on skill, art and craftwork, using real stunt actors instead of Hollywood CGI-laden fabrications.

Fast-paced, relentless, and almost too hyperactive for its own good, it stands as a perfect example of a filmmaker making a genre his own.

Imagine if Terry Gilliam decided to make a spaghetti western by substituting some Asian noodles and leftover beats from Quentin Tarantino and Takashi Miike
