A breezy, quotable, blood-soaked treat.

Big Hollywood

The film's unique script strangely succeeds in mashing together both intense violence and grand comedy.

The Patriot Ledger

It's a tossup over what's more prevalent: the laughs or the body count.

We Got This Covered

Martin McDonagh's Seven Psychopaths is a sharp piece of fun that both pokes at the current climate of filmmaking while also adding its own brand of humor to the mix.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Seven Psychopaths doesn't knuckle down and decide how to answer everything tossed out for consideration, but even when it feels like little more than intellectual, postmodern spitballing, it satisfies as an exercise in storytelling.

Creative Loafing

If it doesn't quite match In Bruges in terms of total success, it's still potent enough to indicate that McDonagh managed to dodge the dreaded sophomore slump.

Movie Metropolis

Though it seems derivative at times, it's offbeat, it's violent, it's well written, and it's well acted.

Fan The Fire

The sense that the different elements don't really add up to much may well leave some feeling cold; for others, the sharp dialogue and comic beats will produce a similar fondness for the characters that In Bruges' best scenes did.

Movie Talk

Another gleefully dark comedy thriller from In Bruges creator Martin McDonagh featuring gabby killers, scabrously funny dialogue and moments of shocking violence.

McDonagh achieves the tricky feat of balancing cleverness, carnage, and compassion.

...the moment to moment of the unparalleled craziness that experimental narrative, character dexterity and into the depths of McDonagh's necessary second album psychosis.

Observer [UK]

Mostly the ruthless black humour is sustained, and occasionally some genuine emotion can creep in and touch our hearts.

...an entertainingly erratic effort...

Irish Times

At times, the galloping absurdity drifts into off-the-peg comedy gangster cliché. But McDonagh's brilliant way with one-liners always claws back enough ground to stifle any groans.

Martin McDonagh gleefully plays with both the gang thriller genre and the moviemaking process with this enjoyably absurd action comedy. It's a little self-indulgent, acknowledging how difficult he found it to follow up his acclaimed film In Bruges.

This is London

There's not much point to a meta-film once the actual film has ceased to grip.

[A] black comedy loaded with some fabulous, all-American visual touches.

[B]ursting with equal parts exasperation, despair, cultural criticism, and black comedy...

Sun Online

McDonagh has enough ideas for six films, but with them all crammed into one, the effect of each is lost.

Too much is so clever-clever that it borders on the stupid.
