... a madcap chase for a treasure map filled with double crosses, crazy escapes and lots of black humor.

This film was a total blast from start to finish! It's more than Good, has little that is Bad, and is filled with the Weird.

Imagine the sparseness of classic oaters matched with the energy of martial arts movies and you've got what Kim Jee-won has wrought.

'The Good, the Bad, the Weird' offers a bizarre but intoxicating synthesis of silliness and awe.

For the most part, an enjoyably wild ride that may do for what you might call the 'noodle western' what Leone's classics did for the pasta variety.

Did you really just watch 50 guys on trucks and horses blast one another to bits while chasing one guy on a motorcycle? You did. And it was awesome.

Pours a ton of genre influences into the archetypal Cuisinart, pureeing everything from chop-socky cheapies to The Road Warrior in a gargantuan, cheerfully anachronistic romp.

Thrill-seekers, rejoice. Here's the summer blockbuster you've been waiting for -- no, dreaming of. The Good, the Bad, the Weird is to Hollywood's puny efforts what the Large Hadron Collider is to a Hula Hoop.

This film starts with a real bang, with a thrilling and lengthy train heist, chase and shoot-out sequence that would be the highlight of many movies. But there's still more to it than that...

You don't feel the mad passion of Sergio Leone behind it, but a steadily spreading grin that never stops growing

With a nod and a wink to Sergio Leone, South Korean filmmaker Kim Jee-woon delivers a slam-bang western set in Manchuria after the Japanese invasion in 1931.

It grabs viewers right from the start, carries them along at a breakneck pace for more than two hours and then sends them off into the lobby feeling dazed, dizzy and delighted over what they have just experienced.

Hollywood will try to sell you all summer long on their latest blockbuster being the thrill ride to beat this season. It will be a movie miracle if any of them are as straight-up entertaining as The Good, the Bad, the Weird.

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.
