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…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Well I didn't see that coming.
Farrel and Branden, with Ralph Fiens, have given great performance . Wonderful story, so moderate and beautiful with ity-bity events which cheer up the film. Great scenes, locations, etc.
Ignore the trailer on this one, it names it out as a buddy comedy but that couldn't be further from the truth. It is definitely funny, but it has some sobering moments as well. I'd recommend this any day of the week.
Andra halvan av filmen var fantastisk!
"If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me, but I didn't, so it doesn't." ~ Ray
As might be expected, Colin Farrell is excellent as Ray, a remorseful Irish hitman who has been sent by his ruthless boss Harry (Ralph Fiennes) to hide out in Bruges, Belgium with partner Ken (Brendan Gleeson). Adding curiosity to the cast is a dwarf named Jimmy (Jordan Prentice), who is acting in a film being shot in the city. There's also a local drug-dealer named Chloe (Clémence Poésy) and her punk boyfriend Eirik (Jérémie Renier), who robs tourists as a sideline.
The location is certainly scenic. The humor is dark, yet effective. But the story hinges entirely on…
Una buena película. Entretenida, dinámica y con una historia bastante cliché pero que funciona muy bien, con un tramo final destacable. La actuación de Colin Farrell no está nada mal. Vamos, que me lo he pasado bien.
