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…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is as good as modern dark comedies come. In Bruges is a ballsy, unconventional and unapologetic comedy. The subjects they touch on in the movie, really surprised me as I never thought I would have so much fun and laugh so hard at a movie that carries themes of depression, and honour(even if the movie at the end of the movie indicated that it merely satirized the concept).
The story is of two hit men named Ray and Ken, who were played by Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. They are told by their employer, played by Ralph Fiennes, to wait in Bruges before hearing their instruction. Later on in the plot, the employer informs Ken that he must kill…
Na Mira do Chefe é um daqueles filmes que há anos venho adiando de assistí-lo e só agora percebi o que tinha perdido.
Uma obra maravilhosa, divertida e com uma história muito bem montada e contada. Trilha sonora, roteiro, direção, atuações, fotografia... um deleite de filme.
One of the best and most original dark comedies I've ever seen.
In Bruges is a throughly enjoyable comedy/drama hybrid, sometimes playing dead serious, and at other times an oddball action comedy. Farrell, Gleeson, and Fiennes are all spectacular, and they play very well with McDonagh's great script.
An original and hilarious black comedy.
Before seeing this film I'd already seen Martin Mcdonaugh's follow up to this film 'Seven Psychopaths' and I was a very big fan of it but for some reason it took me a long time to see In Bruges, and now that I've finally seen it I can definitely say it was worth the wait.
On the other hand I still like Seven Psychopaths a little bit more but this is still a great comedy that I had a lot of fun watching, I recommend this movie to everyone who hasn't seen it because it truly is a gem of a film, can't wait to see what Martin does next.
* lotta fuckin swearing
* goes from very funny to very sad very quickly
* cliffhanger ending
I rewatched this for the fourth time after a theological lecture on the doctrine of atonement... which, unexpectedly, was quite fitting.
This film is a wonderful, madcap, hilarious, offensive, heartfelt, poignant roller-coaster ride, as I knew, but although I'd picked up on some themes about mercy and atonement, I hadn't realized how rich, complex, and deeply rooted in Christianity they were.
In Bruges is a film that I haven’t heard that much about and didn’t really know what to expect going in, with little exposure to the actors involved outside of Brendan Gleeson (Mad-Eye Moody), Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldermort) and Clemence Poesy (Fleur Delacour) who I mainly know from Harry Potter. I hadn’t seen a Martin McDonagh film before and I didn’t know anything about it going in. However, as it turns out, I was pleasantly surprised, as this film turns out to be one of the strongest that I’ve seen lately, with brilliant, black humour, a compelling cast and an intriguing plot.
Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brandon Gleeson) are two hit-men who have fled to Bruges under orders of…
In Bruges is a fantastic dark comedy. The dialogue is ridiculous, hilarious and witty, but the movie's serious notes are done just as well. The combination of comedy and the dark undertones of the story work very well together. Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson play their characters very well in both the comedic and dramatic moments.
