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…
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…
music was a turn off.
First of all, don’t watch this movie if you’re thirsty. It WILL make you want to fly to Belgium and drink all of their beer out of fancy stemmed glasses. It’s been a few days since I watched it, and I’m still fighting the urge to look up plane tickets. If nothing else, watching this movie will decidedly determine your next travel plans.
Now that I’ve addressed the beer, I can talk about the rest of the movie. It’s pretty darn good. The dialogue is excellent, the plot and character development are really well done, and the setting is beautiful. It’s also really funny! A few jokes didn’t land with me, but the movie really is quite clever and engaging.…
I want to write a review for this. I really do. I loved it. But it's 4 in the morning and I just can't. Maybe later. My new favorite British movie.
I can't decide if this was the saddest comedy I've ever seen or the funniest tragedy.
It somehow gets better with every viewing.
I've watched this twice in the last three days. Might be a new favorite. A second viewing really hits home just how well this was written. Everything is in the script for a reason.
I had a lot of fun watching this - and what an ending!
You're an inanimate fuckin' object!
In Bruges is funny but also heartfelt and really sad. This film is absolutely brilliant. It's brilliantly written, the performances are superb, the direction is beautiful and the story itself is so interesting. There are moments where you will laugh and there are also moments where you will almost cry. This film is absolutely brilliant. Colin Ferrell has never been better, Brendan Gleeson plays a completely broken and unpredictable character and Ralph Fiennes is crazy and hilarious in this movie. The ending will shock you. The chemistry between Ferrell and Gleeson is fantastic. This film can handle so many different genres: comedy, action, drama, romance. It's all there and it blends perfectly together in this movie. This movie is outstanding, watch it now. It's on Netflix.
The bro-est art film of all time
