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,…
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…
"How was your date?"
"My date involved two instances of extreme violence, one instance of her hand on my cock and my finger up her thing which lasted all too briefly, one instance of me stealing five grams of very high quality cocaine and one instance of me blinding a puffy little skinhead. So all and all, my evening pretty much evened out."
In some ways, this is the film Guy Ritchie has been trying to make his entire career. It's focused where Guy is vague and delicate where Guy uses an iron glove. He didn't make it, though. And I'm guessing he's a little upset about that.
"You two are weird. Would you like some cocaine?"
The dialogue is…

Yeah,but don't hold it against me.

I loved everything about this film, the dark comedy tone, the extremely good character performances, the music, however what stands out is the incredible script. Some masterful shots which makes Bruges look beautiful.
In Bruges becomes an instant favourite in my book.
IN BRUGES is an excellent example of writer-director Martin McDonagh's sharp intuition for black comedy, a skill he has shown in his successful plays, but for the first time here on film. The film boasts arresting performances from Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, who explore Bruges as well as they explore the inner turmoil dealt from their imposing hitman boss, played well here by the always excellent Ralph Fiennes. The film is smart without being coy, well staged if a bit undercooked, but takes a fascinating look at guilt, purpose, and free will.
I have a very strong love for both English crime movies and the filmography of the McDonagh brothers. Oh, and Brendan Gleeson. This was a pretty great film, much to the thanks of the three of those people/things.
I usually say "To be reviewed if/when I see this again" when I don't have a review (or a good enough review) from when I originally watched a movie, but in the case of In Bruges, I know this is fabulous enough that I'll be watching it again. So, uh, maybe to be reviewed if/when I remember?
A completely unexpected but wonderful film. A dark comedy which truly makes you laugh. After many recommendations I finally watched this film and was not left disappointed. Colin Farrell impressed me a lot, Brendan Gleeson was perfect and as always Ralph Fiennes was superb.
One of the most well balanced comedies I have seen that is not only funny but also has a great story
Great tragicomedy, about guilt and second chances.
