On paper, a movie I should love. In practice, like watching two grad students pee on each other for two hours.

It comes off as a big inside joke. And not a very funny one at that.

This is London

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

McDonagh is undoubtedly a very clever man, but with Seven Psychopaths he is interested in nothing more than celebrating his own cleverness.

For about 75 minutes, Seven Psychopaths is a rollicking good movie - kinetic, clever, funny, and brutal. Then, inexplicably, it falls apart.

The violence wears you down. Like one of its nutso characters, "Seven Psychopaths" has a death wish.

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

The bloody tale of a blocked scriptwriter and a bunch of gangsters is fun to watch (mostly), yet the bold twists and turns of its playful narrative seem to serve no greater purpose other than its own cleverness.

Self-aware stupidity does not equal wit.

While his first film, In Bruges was black, fresh and funny, Martin McDonagh's follow up comedy crime caper is less on the mark

November 3, 2012

Despite a great cast, a great premise and some great ham acting - a must whenever Christopher Walken walks into frame - the movie's lack of focus keeps it from kicking out of second gear and into the kind of crazy groove it clearly strives for.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Neither funny nor groundbreaking, resulting in a half-baked homage not a fully realized idea. But that may be enough for the target audience.

Too many of its moments of let's-subvert-the-genre seem to leave McDonagh stranded and flailing at just the moment when a Tarantino movie or a Chuck Palahniuk novel is snapping into place.

Ultimately, the experience of watching "Seven Psychopaths" is akin to watching a dog like Bonnie chase its tail: It's only funny until you realize that the running in circles isn't ever really going to stop.

You might like this film better if you think exploding heads is a funny bit.

So many characters require a deft, experienced hand at the helm and [Martin] McDonagh has not achieved that level of experience, yet.

While "Seven Psychopaths" is indeed as crazy as it sounds, it's not nearly as smart as it thinks it is.

"Seven Psychopaths" has to be counted as a disappointment.

Movies about moviemaking can often feel lazy -- like rock songs about touring, or poetry about sitting in cafes -- but McDonagh is such an energetic filmmaker and fancy-footed writer that he nearly pulls it off.
