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…
I've been putting off watching this movie because I was under the impression it was just a cheap comedy flick, boy oh boy was I wrong.
Brilliant film with some incredibly funny lines.
"You fucking retract that bit about my cunt fucking kids!"
A brilliantly written film that's serious when it needs to be and darkly funny in-between. One second you're feeling guilty for laughing at a Colin Farrell one-liner, and the next you're on your back because he accidentally shot you on his first job. Not to mention the beautiful setting and cinematography.
"On a job, here in Bruges?
Here in Bruges, on a job?!"
My favorite Colin Farrell movie and one of my favorite Christmas movies.
funny as hell, sad as hell, and colin farrell is also fine as hell. also this movie stressed me tf out near the end but it's super good.
Funny. Dark. British. Genius.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Nur beschissene ❤️
Allerdings ist der Film vermutlich Schuld daran, dass auf dem Turm nun die Fenster vergittert sind.
Can we talk about how underrated Colin Farrell is?
One of my favorites. The movie is very well constructed and you're constantly finding small interesting details with each rewatch
This hilarious black comedy from Martin McDonagh is a pure delight. Superb performances from Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell who play two hit men who are laying low in Bruges on instruction from their irate boss played to perfection by Ralph Fiennes. Set in the picturesque town of Bruges it has some great photography and each scene captures the beauty of the setting, the script is sharp and punchy and it is shot with great style and skill. The comedy moments are quality and frequent; perfectly balancing the darker undertones of the story. This was one of my favourite films of 2008 and begs to have multiple watches. No matter how many times I see it, In Bruges makes me laugh out loud every single time.
