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…
I am becoming firmly convinced that this is secretly a movie about the Christian doctrine of the atonement.
Great script, great cast, great location.
All of the above lend credence to this being one of my favourite films of all time. Dark comedy and tragedy combined, In Bruges is equal parts funny as it is harrowing.
This is truly a wonderful film with an original take on gangsters and a story that is heartfelt and superbly acted by everyone.
it's a comedy, a tragedy, a thriller, an hour and 40 minutes of entertainment.
You'll laugh, you'll sit up in shock, you might cry but one thing for sure is you won't be bored.
A fabulous first film made on a small budget that seems like it's bigger than it actually is. Truly amazing!!

One of the best black comedies I have seen in a long time.
A masterful script and fantastic performances makes this film both darkly comic and deeply touching. The McDonagh brothers are some really effective storytellers.
Bruges, what a beautiful town!
"Harry. Harry! It's a inanimate fucking object!
You're an inanimate fuckin' object!"
I had never seen this movie the whole way through, but what I had seen, I had enjoyed immensely, so I'm not sure why it took me so long, to sit down and finally watch the whole thing, because I already knew that I was going to like it and I really did! And this was following Starred up too, which was fantastic, so it was a hard act to follow. Nothing like seeing two 4.5star films back to back! Massive win for the evening.
Some of Colin Farrell's best work, Gleeson was on fire, as ever and can Ralph Fiennes do any wrong?
In Bruges is entertaining,…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Well, doesn't this have a bit of everything. At least everything I want to see in a film. Laughs, scenes that hit you right in the feels, bit of action, interesting characters....pretty damn good movie.
What I like most about this is the characters themselves. They all seem to have a defined set of moralities and these are shown in the film in such a way that it makes you care about the characters without it dragging the film down. Farrell's character giving the obese US tourists a forewarning about the stairs sums it up best - the guy means well but is a bit misguided. I can't help but love that kind of character.
