A spectacular, eccentric action movie and a surprising and hilarious western!

I'm a fan of the original western movie The Good, the Bad and the Ugly from Sergio Leone, so i was pretty curious about this movie. It takes a lot from the original one (and from other Leone's movies), as expcted, not just the name but lot of things in the plot are similar and also whole scenes and little particulars are taken from it... but at the same time this movie is really different and distant from Leone's work. More a parody or a tribute than anything else, and that's what saves this movie, in my opinion.

The plot is quite simple - 1 treasure map and a lot of people that want it pretty bad - but at the same time, since the rivals are so much, can also be a little confusing. Unfortunately it ends a little bit apruptly, after some really epic scenes you'll find yourself expecting more... But is still ok, i think, since what will catch you while seeing this movie won't be the plot but the view experience itself.

The movie, in fact, it's really well played and well directed: a great action movie with awesome and spectacular fight scenes, and quite of an interesting comedy-western. But what really surprised me were the amazing-peculiar-eccentric scenography and costumes! Those definitely gave a stunning perspective to this movie and helped all the weird characters to be somehow credible (and, therefore, funny and not just "odd").

It's quite a crazy movie, i think... but that's absolutely coherent with something so inchoherent like an "asian western". :D

I wondered how I would rate this drama.
Undoubtedly, it was very funny. And how the action was filmed was very well done. But the story itself was a bit boring. My boyfriend and I agreed to rate it "good".

It's crazy :D like the idea of an "asian western"... and that's why i liked it!
And it's full of connections to Sergio Leone's movies, not just The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, so - for a fan like me - was really enjoyable!
True that the plot is kinda weak sometimes, especially at the end... but there are some really cool fighting scenes and schenography and costumes were just amazing!
Really watch worthing, for me!

bought the DVD and was sometimes amused, but most of the time it seemed a bit bland to me. donno, but to me this film is too much about hype than real quality or comedy.

Good action film with great actors! I enjoyed watching it.
And I have to say I liked it that blood wasn't overly used in this film. You know when it flows litres no matter what kind of wound it is and it kinda ruins the mood. Well this movie had enough of blood usage! ^^ (I hope that makes sense...)

simple enough, 3 dudes & 1 treasure... obvious plot, so don't watch this film looking for a story, that just makes you look stupid.

This film is action-packed it kept me entertained like Indiana Jones. Good acting and with funny moments.

Those who like gun-fights/explosions/bad-ass characters/comic relief - will certainly enjoy this film. :)
