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?
The only film where you will witness Madeye Moody and Voldemort sit in a bar and call each other cunts.
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 Belgian tour operator who must've bribed Martin McDonagh when he was conceptualising this film is probably benefiting greatly from it now. This bizarre gangster road trip put Bruges on the map with its simple story of three hitmen in a pickle. Following a messy slip-up, criminals Ray and Ken find themselves in Belgium awaiting orders from their boss Harry. We soon learn that when Harry says wait that's exactly what everyone does and it gives Colin Farrell plenty of time to show us how effectively he can throw his toys out of the pram.
Had Tarantino or Guy Ritchie got their paws on this script it would've been either irritating or offensive. It begins with the aftermath of a…
I watched this when it first came out and I did not know how to respond. I knew I had seen something new and fresh but I didn't know how I felt about it. Since then I have often gone quiet when this has been brought up in general conversation, never being sure what to say.
This evening I went to movie mystery Monday at my local cinema. Pay three quid and you could see anything. You don't know what it is till the film starts. This could be old, recent, out now or even a preview of a film not out yet. I love this. The expectation of the room is always high and this evening was no exception.…
If you haven't seen this why not?!?!?!? Stop what you are doing and turn it on! The McDonagh brilliance shines once again ,and Ferrell is brilliant
Probably a film I should have watched long before today. I don't know why I hadn't, always heard good things.... Well today as the day, and I have to say. I agree this is a really good film.
After a bit of a slow beginning this film just seems to take off and at the same time brings my view of Colin Farrell as an actor up. While it has weird moments and quirky dialogue everything seems to fit in its right place.
Enough weird to be interesting, very fun and good dialogue, and some very heartbreaking moments, who knew a film about hitmen could be so human.
A dark comedy yet containing themes of grief and regret, combined with a fine performance from Colin Farrell
Definitivamente curti o gênero, em especial o humor extremamente mórbido (aliás, Ralph Fiennes em papel de comédia: uma história de amor). Quem diria que ia gostar de um filme com o Colin Farrell.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Two hitmen flee to Bruges and await orders from their boss. This movie deals with the morality and honor of hitmen. The very nature of that job description makes for an interesting and dark comedy that is, In Bruges.
Weird, Witty and completely off its rocker. In Bruges' Black Comedy Style provides for an enjoyable yet curious experience where you never quite know where things are going to end up.
Why didnt i watch this sooner? Colin Farrell was 💯💯💯💯💯
