We saw it at the festivals last year, now it’s on mainstream release. Astoundingly, the normally hostile Wendy Ide in The Times gives it 4 out of 5, while Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian gives it a more measured 3 out of 5. LKL probably would split the difference, as does Tom Huddleston in Time Out, giving it 4 out of 6. In a dull 2008, Kim Ji-woon’s Manchurian western The Good the Bad and the Weird was one of the few noticeable films. Non-stop fun, if a touch over-long.
