Ray and Ken, two hit men, are in Bruges, Belgium, waiting for their next mission. While they are there they have time to think and discuss their previous assignment. When the mission is revealed to Ken, it is not what he expected.
What a conversation between Harry and Ken would sound like if they were talking about some lame person who doesn't like this movie:
Harry: So he's having a really nice time watching In Bruges?
Ken: Well, I'm having a really nice time watching In Bruges. I'm not sure it's really his cup of tea.
Harry: (Stunned silence) What?
Ken: You know... I'm not sure it's really his thing.
Harry: What do you mean it's not really his thing? What's that supposed to mean? It's not really his thing... What the fuck is that supposed to mean?
Ken: Nothing, Harry.
Harry: But it's a masterpiece, isn't it? How can a masterpiece not be somebody's fucking thing? The brilliant fucking dialogue, the perfect fucking casting, the wonderful fucking blend of the most hilarious dark humor with spine-tingling drama and character development... how can that not be somebody's fucking thing? How can that be?
Pure fucking brilliance. Everything fucking works. Fucking humour, fucking emotions, fucking Ralph fucking Fiennes is the fucking best fucking ever.
"You're an inanimate fuckin' object!"
I cannot get over that line. It's so fucking good.
Martin McDonagh’s debut feature is a profane black comedy about those two perennial Catholic obsessions - guilt and sin. Two foul-mouthed Irish hitmen are sent to Bruges following a botched job and ordered to wait there until they receive further instructions. The film’s chief success comes in this brilliantly realised central pairing that is a perfect marriage between script and performance.
Colin Farrell plays the grief stricken, Ray - a cocksure and frequently inappropriate Jack the lad who made a grave mistake during his one and only hit. Ray, like practically every other character that finds themselves stuck in Bruges, isn’t particularly nice yet his natural Irish charm and sense of morality (albeit a warped one) make him an interesting,…
The only film where you will witness Madeye Moody and Voldemort sit in a bar and call each other cunts.
Well, this was fuckin' or fookin' brilliant.
VOLDEMORT PLAYED A CHARACTER NAMED HARRY
LET IT BE KNOWN THAT VOLDEMORT WANTED TO BE HARRY ALL ALONG, I SMELL JEALOUSY.
This is just fucking awesome. I mean you got comedy, Voldemort, guns, violence, a midget, Voldemort, drugs, fuckin' swans and Voldemort.
1. Halfway through the film I said "I should count how many times they say fuck." but then I realized fuck it.
2. How have I not seen this until now? Fucking fuck.
3. I AM OVERWHELMED WITH SADNESS THAT THERE WERE NO SUBTITLES, BUT WHAT I HEARD WAS PERFECTION. FUCK.
4. The fact that there is a swan in the cover art, makes life 10 times fucking better.
5. For fuck's sake it's a fucking good movie, with fucking Colin Farrell and Lord Voldemort.
6. You're an inanimate fuckin' object!
7. ^ Best thing I ever heard.
2 things will happen after you watch this movie:
1: You will want to go to Bruges and see the swans and the medieval shit
2: Your urge to call people "fookin coonts" will dramatically rise.
If you haven't seen this dark comedy criminal masterpiece yet, I would advise you to close this review and try to get on that as soon as possible. I watched an unhealthy amount of movies today, but quotes from this one keep floating through my brain. I saw this movie a couple years ago and though it was alright. I think it's one of those movies that will keep getting better and better every time I watch it. Hey, not every film clicks with…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Each time I rewatch this, I become more convinced that it's one of the best films of the 21st century so far.
What brings these two hitmen to a "Fairy Tale" city?
"In Bruges" is one of the most underrated movies I've ever seen. I say underrated because I've never heard it outside of critical acclaim get any respect or mention. But boy do you know right away that this is a great film when that script takes off! Wonderful writing that mixes dark humor with dark thriller elements, and then an epic screenplay that brings all the characters together for one hell of a climax.
Ray might think it sucks to be stuck in Bruges, but with it hosting films like this, I sure don't.
Very good black comedy, and very funny.
I felt really bad for laughing at some of this shit, but it's seriously fucking hilarious. The entire tone and atmosphere of the film is perfection. The finest black comedy I have ever seen.
I expected to really like this. I've seen nothing but glowing views, and often from people who share other favourites of mine. Unfortunately, In Bruges wasn't as enjoyable as anticipated.
The setting of Bruges was gorgeous, and there were moments of magic from the camera and from the actors (Farrell's performance surprised me having seen him in forgettable action films before this). There was a depth and moral ambiguity to the characters, making them likeable despite their profession, and the relationships between the hitmen came across as sincere.
I'm probably just a dull person, but I struggle to laugh, and In Bruges' comedy did nothing to alleviate that. Not only did the comedy fall flat but the plot, after establishing such a good dynamic between Farrell and Gleeson stumbled lethargically to a stuttering end.
I didn't dislike this film by any means. I just didn't get the hype.
Very witty and funny black comedy.
"I'm gonna die now..."
I am vaguely familiar with Martin McDonagh's theatre work, having almost been in a student-run production of The Pillowman that unfortunately didn't happen. His film debut is a great black comedy that makes sure that it doesn't cross the boundaries of what's acceptable and tasteful. Sure, there is some dark, edgy humour, but it never leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
It's also surprisingly deep, with moments that wouldn't look out of place in a straight drama, lending the film a unique quality compared to other comedies and films of its type.
The ironic ending is perhaps a little bit of a cop out, but this is a film that balances comedy and pathos near-perfectly,…
