Q&A to follow with director/co-screenwriter/producer Kim Ji-woon
A rip-roaring update of classic widescreen Spaghetti Westerns, this action extravaganza of lawless 1930s Manchuria centers upon three strangers who meet fatefully on a train: an implacable bounty hunter (Jung Woo-sung), the merciless leader of a group of bandits (Lee Byung-hun) and a robber with nine lives (Song Kang-ho).
