Get a little ( ok a lot ) weird, but it´s a fun ride brought by Martin McDonagh.
Needless to say, you shouldn't listen to MrBamber. Watch this for yourself and decide.

I didn't mean to break his nose. His nose was
just in the middle of where I was punching.
Marty (Colin Farrell), an alcoholic screenwriter, has a great name for a film, the titular Seven Psychopaths, but no idea what to do with it. His friend Billy (Sam Rockwell), along with the elderly Hans (Christopher Walken), run a scam kidnapping dogs for the reward money. When Billy kidnaps the dog of a genuine psychopath, Charlie Costello (Woody Harrelson), they go on the run as other psychopaths (including Tom Waits) make themselves known.
Writer/Director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) has crafted a smartly self aware and darkly funny film, teaming here once again with a very believable Colin Farrell. Walken, Rockwell, Harrelson and Waits all bring top class performances and are backed by a strong support cast.
With such an ensemble its hard to single out any performance, particularly because they are all so vivid, but the chemistry between Christopher Walken and Linda White Clay (who plays a small role as his dying wife Myra) is sweet and very touching; a tender contrast to the violent madness.
Seven Psychopaths is a film that shouldn't be spoiled by a protracted review, it's too much fun watching all the pieces come together, even when some are a little obvious. The writing is sharp and the structured self awareness is never too clever for it's own good.
Very easy to recommended.
Rewatched this since I'm riding the high of The Guard/In Bruges. About halfway through I'm thinking maybe this isn't as awesome as I remembered. Maybe because when I first watched it I didn't expect much and was pleasantly surprised. And now that I'm watching it expecting awesome, it doesn't live up.
Then the rest of the movie happened. By the end I'm right back thinking it's great. I really walked away with a feel good, life affirming feel just like the movie said it would have, which is odd considering how things end. But it works.
Super pumped for this director's next movie. Too lazy to add IMDB link but it's got "Three Billboards" in the title, comes out next year, and has a STACKED cast. Thursday night watcher for sure.
