Action, Adventure, Western
Director Ji-woon Kim (the excellent A Tale of Two Sisters) brings a fun sensibility to this tribute to spaghetti Westerns. Korean outlaws fight over a treasure map, paving the way for massive, stylistic gunplay. Kang-ho Song (The Host) gives a standout performance as “The Weird,” a train bandit who comes across the map and finds himself pursued by a notorious killer (“The Bad,” played by Byung-hun Lee). Kim knows his way around a gunfight, and he manages to get a reasonable amount of humor into the proceedings. This is basically an excuse for massive fight choreography—and it works, because the choreography is first-rate. Kim is clearly a director to be reckoned with, showing just as much aptitude for action-adventure as he did for horror.
