Korean filmmaker Kim Jee-woon’s helter-skelter tribute to Sergio Leone -- and, by the way, Quentin Tarantino -- follows the extra-strenuous antics of a disheveled bandit (Song Kang-ho, “The Weird”), a bounty hunter (Jung Woo-sung, “The Good”), and a dapper gunslinger (Lee Byung-hun, “The Bad”) as they race across pre-WWII Manchuria trading fusillades of bullets with each other, the invading Japanese army, and more bandidos. Further indication that anything Hollywood, or Cinecittá, can do, Seoul can do at twice the speed and three times the gaudiness. Despite that warning it goes nicely with popcorn, and cinematographer Oh Seung-chul’s amazingly lit shots of the arid, rugged terrain (shot in China’s Gobi Desert) may be the best reason to see this (130 min.).
