IFF BOSTON: Joheunnom Nabbeunnom Isanghannom (The Good, The Bad, The Weird) (2008)

Yoon Tae-goo aka The Weird (Song Kang-ho) is a resilient petty thief who chances upon a treasure map while robbing a group of Japanese soldiers. Park Chang-yi aka The Bad (Lee Byung-hun) is a malicious assassin sent to reclaim the map, but must resign himself to hunting Tae-goo down. Park Do-won aka The Good (Jung Woo-sung) is a taciturn bounty hunter chasing after both men’s rewards who eventually teams up with Tae-goo in the search for the treasure. Sprinkle in some curious Manchurian bandits and a dedicated group of Japanese soldiers, and you’ve got an all-out chase replete with wackiness, gunfights, and thrills!
