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…
"Ken, I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me but I didn't, so it doesn't."
Does it get any better than this movie? No. Really. Does it? Because I don't think it does.
El ritmo de la primera hora me hizo cuestionarme si me gustaba, y solo por eso no se lleva un diez que a cada escena posterior iba mereciendo más y más. Un humor genial, con diálogos y escenas que preparan al final de una forma tan sutil como la del primer Guy Ritchie.
No sé si McDonagh tiene este estilo o fue algo casual, pero por ahora a sus pies.
Si esto te lo firman los Coen o Guy Ritchie, se está hablando de ello durante mucho tiempo.
The Tarantino comparisons are of course justified, but personally I feel In Bruges' tone better encapsulates the black humour that's within this film in abundance. Colin Farrell gives an excellent performance as the shifty, politically incorrect hitman running from his past whilst Brendon Gleeson shines as his opposite counterpart who just wants to enjoy the sights and sounds Bruges has to offer. Ralph Fiennes offers a barrage of expletives designed to make you howl with laughter even when the action onscreen takes a darker turn. A mini masterpiece in my eyes.
british tourists are so rude
Why do people love this so much again? It's kind of funny I guess.
A lark. But a darkly funny and deeply affecting lark.
