The Good, the Bad, the Weird (Joheun-nom, Nabbeun-nom, Isanghan-nom) Reviews

Unfortunately, the glorious excesses that make The Good, the Bad, the Weird, so good and weird, also have a deadening effect.

It isn't the film's style-over-substance approach that prevents it from being as engaging and entertaining as it desires; it's the lack of cohesiveness and discernible rhythm.

The production's blend of traditional cowboy tropes and 20th-century elements give it an out-of-time feel that's appropriate for what is basically a teenage boy's extended fantasy.

The Good, the Bad, the Weird is little more than a series of anonymous, elaborate shoot-outs. Like its title, it's just a goof.

If you're going to attempt an ambitious action epic, you'd better have the directorial chops to pull it off. Kim clearly doesn't.

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

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.

[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.

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.

Some fancy setpieces here and there, and gunplay just about everywhere, but none of the principals can begin to rival the sacred trio of Eli Wallach, Lee Van Cleef and the other one.

The Good The Bad The Weird is as scattershot as his second and third movies, but is well-staged, handsomely designed fun that never threatens to take itself seriously.
