Fantastic performances by Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson bolster a heartbreaking narrative full of dark humour by Martin McDonagh. The film sets an atmosphere which is hard to describe, but is found in some films of this year such as Wind River. The audience is filled with such a high level of dread as the events of the film could occur in real life and many characters act happy despite their lives being anything but this.

I think this is why I love films so much, people telling stories about other people and what motivates them to do the things they do.

every single character in this movie matter, every single character feels real! fantastic performances, great story telling.
this right here is a Masterpiece and without any doubt the best 2017 Film. It´s rare for a movie to make me stare at the credits thinking about what i just saw...
On a side note... wouldn't it be great to have a sequel?

Engaging and Captivating, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, is a drama that will leave everyone specullating and guessing without ever revealing the real culprit of the plot's main story! Incorporating Dark Humour, this movie gives us outstanding performances by Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, and Sam Rockwell, and it's sure to leave moviegoers satisfied, even with the lack of closure!
A Great Movie

Decent performances, but holy shit this is seriously overwritten to the point where everyone in the cast feels as if you penned a ridiculous caricature of a real person, and then toned it down maybe 10%. McDormand's first overdone soliloquy about Bloods and Crips and Catholic Priests was the first major clue, but almost everything that came after it was a notch or two over-the-top, as well. And don't even get me started on Sam Rockwell, who seems to be acting in a whole other movie most of the time.

If someone programmed a computer to write a algorithm that left you conflicted, sympathetic and amused by the misery of human folly, this is precisely the type of script it would write. The whole thing feels oddly plastic, and it contains so many absurdities and contrivances and implausible character transformations that it leaves you with an aftertaste of a cheap meal cooked in a microwave.

In a few years, we will be looking back on 'Three Billboards' the same way we look back on Paul Haggis' 'Crash'.

Absolutely Garbage.

the charectors are well written and wonderfully acted but this is the only thing that's well written.

The story (or lack there of) is Garbage, the film feels like a mix of a few unfinished idea's hurriedly cobbled together to last an hour and a half.

Completely aimless, tonally confusing, and ultimately boring.

It's definitely watchable, but don't believe the hype - If this mediocre thing raked up no less than 7 Oscar nominations that should tell you something about the current state of the US movie industry.

Amazing! This was a powerful move.
I really enjoy it.
Mildred is one of the most incredible characters ever made.

Tragic at its core, but a tale filled with hope and grace, and real insights into the human condition. McDormand is fantastic - as she always is - but kudos also belong to Harrelson and Rockwell, as well as the whole of the superb supporting cast. Narratively unpredictable, but the characters matter more than the plot in this gem of a film.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

This is 100% a character study, don't come here for a murder mystery.
The acting in this, is among the best in cinema, every character felt real with their emotions.
Some minor plot holes, but it matters little.

9/10

Was not an awful movie, just kind of slow and I didn't like the ending. I would try to find maybe a 15 minute overview of this movie on youtube if you could so you can spend the other hour and a half of your life doing something more enjoyable lol.

It feels like an incomplete movie, and i would only accept that awfull ending if they are plaining to make a sequel.
Besides that the movie is awesome, the performers make this a fantastic movie. 6.5/10 untill i get my sequel!

Nossa! Que filme corajoso. Atuações fantásticas e uma história que te coloca pra pensar o tempo inteiro. Os personagens são cinzas e suas ações estão constantemente provocando o espectador a confrontar suas próprias convicções. O final achei um pouco conveniente mas não tira o brilho do filme. Já é o meu favorito na corrida do Oscar.

A nice mystery that's not about what it's meant to be about, because the 3 billboards in the film are not billboards but characters (Chief William Willoughby, Mildred Hayes and Officer Dixon), and the movie is not a mystery but a tale of grace, humanity and redemption.

Drama is a film genre that requires most reality in the story ... in this movie you have the feeling that anyone can kill, hurt, curse the police in the worst possible way, threatens, breaks ... pure anarchy. This film is depressing, and that word describes it best. Also, here on Trakt.tv @Dirk wrote that there is a great balance between drama and comedy. Comedy ??? What comedy? Well, if there was a comedy, the movie might have been interesting. And the ending of the movie? I have not seen this kind of stupid ending for a long time. The acting was great, of course ... the film was beautifully shot, but the story could have been much more interesting, especially if it had a better finish. 4/10

Enjoyable, entertaining film with great performances by Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell. The one issue I have with this film is their attempt to redeem Sam Rockwell's character who seemed damned near irredeemable to me.

A good movie, I don’t think its a masterpiece, but in recent years the [masterpieces] tend to elude me. It is entertaining and also not very predictable from the opening. It makes sense and most of the characters are likable even if when introduced they aren’t.

It’s probably the best movie of 2017, grab it and watch it. You won’t be wasting 140 minutes of your life.

Didnt took my attention. For me its just another sunday afternoon movie to watch, nothing special to see or even think

They just took a few actors well know to try to hype this movie but i gave a 5 on this

loading replies

A great movie. A very good balance between drama and comedy. A small story with depth and relevance. But most of all, it is told in very eloquent way. For me the form, the way a story is told, gets more and more importance over the story, the content.

The ending is almost perfect, I think the cut comes even too late. The story is told inside Ebbing and the cut should have come, when they leave Ebbing. Leaving Ebbing is leaving the story of the movie. What comes now is another story. And I would like to have more ambiguity. After their conversation, the following story is clear now.

The only reason, that this great movie foes not get the Oscar for best picture, would be losing against Dunkirk. But losing against The Shape of Water? What a pity.

When i saw the trailer i wanted to see this movie, but alas it didn't live up to the greatness i was expecting. The acting was great and the story was good too, but it wasn't complete. They give you a case to think about and work towards it only to lead you astray in the end and you're no wiser than when you started the movie. I must say this was an epic performance by Woody Harrelson he was truly amazing in this movie. It was nice seeing a lot of great actors come together in this movie.

This was a truly phenomenal movie. I loved Frances McDormands performance , the way she shows the emotions of Mildred Hayes all felt so sincere. The angry, the fear, the loving but also the revengeful mother all were portrayed perfect. I also liked Woody Harrelsons part and sure his death was surprising, but after his suicide I almost immediately forgot that he was in it This movie is fully character driven and it had me on the edge of my seat for the whole duration. Sure there were some slower parts but overall this movie is a must watch.

Smart, funny and with a whole lot of heart, this film was not what I was expecting, but it managed to far exceed my expectations. Frances McDormand is brilliant as always, of course! Sam Rockwell’s character is hilariously on point and clever. 10/10

The influence of Fargo can't be denied here. Lead actress McDormand is most obvious. Based on a true story (which I feel compelled to Wikipedia soon). Interesting characters throughout. Shifts in tone from comedy, melodrama and outright savage violence. That being said, it was a good tale and not what I was expecting at all. Funnier than some comedies this year and an engaging plot that even after the curtain drops, you're still not sure where it is going. 7/10

Du Pitch au casting. Des répliques aux retournements de situations. De l'humour à la violence. De la légèreté à la tristesse. Tout est parfaitement amené.

Les acteurs sont incroyables. Caleb Landry Jones enchaine les bons films et les bons rôles. Woody Harrelson est toujours nickel. Sam Rockwell, qu'on avait un peu oublié, revient casser des bouches avec un rôle incroyable et une performance éclipsée uniquement par l'immense talent de Frances McDormand.

Car la vraie star, c'est évidemment elle. Ses changements d'humeur, la subtilité avec laquelle elle passe d'une émotion à l'autre au sein d'une même scène, tout est remarquable.

La fin est peut-être un poil décevante, car évidente dans le type de résolution que le film peut se permettre. Mais ça ne gâche en rien le génie de ce film.

Moi qui ai DÉTESTÉ In Bruges et Seven Psychopaths, je suis encore plus surpris par la réalisation et le scénario de Martin McDonagh. Chapeau bas. Vivement les oscars.

Fantastic film, very smart and has a ton of dark humor. The script, the dialogue, the cinematography, the music, it is all top notch. Frances McDormand gives one of the best performances of her career, my favorite since Fargo. Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell are both fantastic too. Martin McDonagh's unique style of directing makes for a very entertaining movie and I look forward to seeing what he does next.
