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,…
Part of the Buddy the Elf Challenge.
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.…
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…
"At least in prison, and at least in death, you know, I wouldn't be in fuckin' Bruges."
This film is absolutely gorgeous. The cinematography and shots of Bruges, Belgium is really quite beautiful and we as the audience get to know the city as well do Ray and Ken. Seriously good camera work. The score sets the tone quite nicely as well and is really and hauntingly well done. It's all about the atmosphere, which is darkly fantastic.
It has that nice feel of a film that fits into no one genre. Netflix has eleven listed, and none really make sense to me. Crime comedy? Doesn't really come close in my opinion. I think genre, aka putting things in boxes,…
I watched this film because it was one of my friends second favourite films so I figured I would give it a try.
When I first saw the film I thought it was amazing, the acting was great (mainly the two leads who were very entertaining at times although the antagonist was also very interesting to watch) and the story was quite interesting.
Although, looking back at it I don't remember much about it so the film does not have much of a lasting impact on me. I may watch it again at some point and see if my opinions change
The scenes without Colin Farrell were boring, but overall pretty good.
This film is damn near perfect. Funny, dark, sad, and beautiful. Marked down half a star because I'm not sure what to make of all the midget jokes, of which there are many. Is "midget" even PC anymore? I dunno.
"It's Jesus' fuckin' blood, of course you don't fuckin' HAVE to"
The movie starts confusing. A hit gone wrong, we overhear a phone conversation, the person in question has to hide in Bruges. We hear an Irish accents, IRA maybe? What kind of movies is it going to be? And medieval Bruges doesn’t look like the setting for a gangster movie. Then the dialogue between leading characters Ray and Ken starts. Like Vincent and Jules from “Pulp Fiction” they talk a lot and nothing seems to happen. Until Ray meets a girl and Ken gets a phone call from their boss Harry.
In the story that follows, the pieces of the puzzle fall in its place. Why they are in Bruges, what happened and what is going to happen. That build-up…
I’m not sure what could have raised this further in my eyes. The film is largely perfect, the performances near-flawless, and the story just as tragic as it is humorously told.
wow, how did I miss this little gem for so long.
Funny, violent, yet pretty deep if almost theatrical piece about the concept of purgatory.
