It's execution may be a bit misguided at times, but this is the kind of easy, gorgeously cinematic spectacle that we go to the movies for. This is movie magic in the hands of a master filmmaker.

This is a Sergio Leone inspired western action movie that's totally entertaining that has non-stop action coupled with comedy. A slam-bang boom boom fun ride.

Finesse from the director in addition to a wacky yet intricate take on the American original yields a unique film that while steeped in some negative Korean cinema tropes still manages to be enjoyable.

There are some sort of cliches for this kind of western genre and unnecessary scenes functioning only for being seen stylish. Nevertheless, I have to accept that it is cool movie.

A "Kimchi Western" that's more George Miller and Gore Verbinski than Sergio Leone.

I'm a big fan of action movies that don't take themselves to seriously while also being surprisingly violent.

A goofy romp that features one of most thrilling chase sequences in a long time.
½ July 9, 2016
A very clever homage/ parody of Spaghetti Westerns, boasting outrageous situations, delirious chases, intelligent humour and side-splitting performances.

It offers excellent action, direction, as well as a premise that doesn't take itself to seriously which helps me excuse some minor story issues. Although it's clear from the title that this film borrows from others and it does so a little to much to be great.
Grade: C+

An interesting cast, plenty of action, and a decent story makes Kim's action comedy a must watch for people wanting an exciting, funny, Japanese action movie. Also, Byung-hun Lee looks smoking hot in this film and is one of the coolest looking antagonists ever!

Containing some fiery sequences, as well as some humourous moments, especially the awesome climactic thirty-minute chase scene, this is a movie that fans of Western and Asian action will surely enjoy.

Loved it! My favorite Korean Western, must see if you don't mind reading subtitles, dubs are usually terrible, doesn't do the characters or dialogue any justice

This Sergio Leone-inspired Korean Western is well directed, funny and thoroughly entertaining especially for fans of Spaghetti Westerns, pretty much like Tarantino's well-known pastiches, but it is also overlong and doesn't seem to know how to end.

Amazing comedy.... Amazing twist!

This film is as good as the film that inspired it. The Good, the bad and the weird is full of energy, packed with terrific VFX and action sequences and is a prime example of what westerns should be. Unlike the American westerns, this Korean film is well paced and is shot extensively well. The three actors are good and the final showdown I believe is better than that of the original.

Above everything else, This film is just loads and loads of fun.
July 28, 2015
Comical yet quite digestible film that has a lot of different elements
½ July 18, 2015
A bizarre, yet very entertaining film.
½ June 20, 2015
A fun movie in it's own right, yet hard not to compare to the classic climax in the spaghetti western of a similar title. It is a fun and wild ride dealing with three different determined gunslingers, two of which seek a buried treasure along with three different groups/armies while the other looks to collect his bounty. The action is impressive and the plot twists are pretty darn good, you can't ask for anymore for what this movie is meant to be: an absurd yet wildly entertaining Korean spaghetti western.
