Crime does not pay but it sure can be incredibly entertaining until it all gies south. Fantastic acting and a deep study of how each character deals with and attempts to justify their actions. It's rare that anti heroes or even straight up black color (I'm not sure that's the proper terminology) criminals meet with a realistic end and even though it's completely warranted, it really pulls on the heart strings and is goddamn sad.
By far, one of the best movies I've ever seen! I don't remember when was the last time I had so much fun seeing a dog on the screen.
This is just a fun movie, I'd watch again in a heartbeat.
Watched this again to confirm that I loved it. Turns out I totally do. Decided to commit to the Netflix send after watching The Guard, another Gleeson flick with this director. Between this and that, he's got a real style and mood to his films. What else has he done since The Guard? (After a quick google...) Seven Psychopaths?!?! I love that movie too! Who is this guy?! That's 3 great movies. When's his next one? Also I need to rewatch that one. Adding it to the list.
Dark comedy, great dialogue, fantastic setting, but not what you'd expect.
This film is great! The film is about two hitmen hiding out in Bruges, awaiting orders from their employer. Things happen that I'm not going to explain because it would spoil the movie, but I will say that the movie's very entertaining and it has a good sense of dark humor. There are some action-thriller elements to it, but it's mostly a comedy. And how refreshing it is to see a comedy that doesn't completely do away with the idea of consequence. The two main characters have an entertaining contrast and they work very well together comedically. Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson do very well to play their characters and both can provide a variety of dimensions to the characters in specific scenes. I had no idea who was actually in this movie, so when I saw that ONE actor suddenly appear I was extremely delighted and impressed. An extremely well-written film with plot twists and turns that you will not see coming with plenty of intelligent humour and some dumb humour along the way to make this a very entertaining ride. Like I said, I don't want to spoil too much, so I'm just going to leave it at that and say you should check it out!
Maybe it's cause I'm Dutch, but I liked this movie very much! Great humor, fun plot.
Stupid and pointless movie. I feel like I've wasted my time.
Esto es humor negro del bueno!!
