Foreign Film Friday

Standard

Welcome to the second installment of Foreign Film Friday. Today’s movie is ‘The Good, The Bad, and The Weird’ a Korean Western. Yes, I did say Korean Western. There is a great new genre of movies called sushi-westerns coming out of Asia. These movies are Asian- they have Asian actors, themes, costumes, and ass kicking martial arts, and yet they are set in Old West American type towns.
“The Good, The Bad, and The Weird” follows two bounty hunters- one ‘good’ – Woo-sung Jung and one ‘bad’ – Byung-hun Lee and an odd misfit- the weird- played by one of my favorite Korean actors- Kang-ho Song.  The three men are after a treasure map, which they all have possession of at one point in the movie. It is basically one long chase scene. It’s funny and the fights are great and the acting is wonderful. Please, if you like action/comedy,martial arts, western movies  The Good, The Bad, and The Weird is one you’ll enjoy.
