Take a break from work: watch a trailer…
A “Western” with motorcycles and knife-throwing? Ho-kay.
Maybe it doesn’t matter that the trailer doesn’t reveal much about the story, not when it does tell us that there’s motorcycles and knife-throwing, but here’s the scoop on the film (from a press release from the British publicist):
Set in the 1930’s Manchurian desert where lawlessness rules, three Korean men fatefully meet each other on a train. Do-Won (Woo-sung Jung) is a bounty hunter who tracks down dangerous criminals. Chang-yi (Byung-hun Lee) is the leader of a group of tough-as-nails bandits. Tae-goo (Kang-ho Song) is a train robber with nine lives. The three strangers engage in a chase across Manchuria to take possession of a map Tae-goo discovers while robbing the train. Also on the hunt for the mysterious map are the Japanese army and Asian bandits. In this unpredictable, escalating battle for the map, who will stand as the winner in the end?
The Good, the Bad, the Weird opened in the U.K. on February 6; no U.S. release date has been announced.
