It's really a totally intense one, more than life what matters it tells. Brendan was amazing, Colin Ferrell, the tense sequences, sacrifice, crazy psychopath people altogether making an amazing Movie. Loved it

I just cantt understand why people like this movie. I stuck with it because of the reviews, hoping it would get better. For me it didn´┐ 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM)t and I felt I wasted two hours of my life. Maybe because I´┐ 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM)m older I just didnt get the language or violence

One of the funniest movies of the new millennium. One of the great Christmas movies of the new millennium. One of the most well-written movies of the new millennium. One of the most incredibly acted movies of the new millennium. One of the most spiritually potent movies of the new millennium. One of the greatest movies (period) of the new millennium.

At some point in time, Colin and Ralph were my two ultimate crushes. Now that I had that out of the way, In Bruges was a rather fun dark comedy, with the really scenic Bruges as the backdrop. The premise and character development were simple and easy enough to grasp, making me all the more undistracted while watching it.

Wonderfully twisted crime dramedy that manages to be both gut-wrenching & hilarious at the same time. The entire cast give career best performances, with Colin Farrell giving his best lead performance to date as the mournful Ray, who tries to deal with a horrible thing he's done, but sometimes in the craziest ways (he's got a thing for midgets). He's matched wonderfully by Bendan Gleeson, who genuinely believes in Ray, despite his past, while Ralph Fiennes is hilarious as their short-tempered mob boss. Behind the camera, writer/director Martin McDonagh crafts a truly original piece and you'll never sure where it's going. What's remarkable is that the dramatic moments are gut-wrenching (Ray did do a bad thing) while the comedic moments hilarious (an argument over a suicidal man with his supposed assassin over who gets to kill him is brilliant). Best of all, they fit together in the film perfectly and never feel out of place with each other. McDonagh also makes great use of the the Christmas holiday, as some pretty horrible stuff happens around the time humans should be sharing peace & joy. Overall, one of the best & most original crime films in recent years, and since it takes place during Christmas, and awesome addition to the holiday film rotation.

Collin Ferrel and his friend are hitmen's. Collin kills a priest but then also kill s a little boy by accident. This is his first "hit". They are sent to Bruges by this boss to hideout and give Collin one last good memory before his partner kills him. However, as his partner is about to kill him, Collin also pulls a gun out and is about to commit suicide. His partner then feels bad and saves him and gives him some money to get out of there and hide forever.
His partner calls his boss Harry who comes to Bruges to kill him for "honor". However, Collin gets arrested on the train and send back to Bruges.
In the final climax sequence, Harry and the partner go up the bell tower and the partner decides not to fight anymore. Harry feels bad and decides not to kill him, but shoots him in the leg instead. As they are going down the bell tower, the skinhead boyfriend who Collin blinded runs up to tell them Collin in back in town. After which Harry scuffles with the partner and shoots him in the neck. The partner drags himself back up the bell tower intending on shooting Harry. However, there is too much fog, so he jumps from the belltower to warn Collin that Harry is coming.
There's a chase sequence that ends in Collin getting shot and ultimately Harry shoots through Collin and blows the midgets head off. Because the midget was dressed as a boy, Harry believes he killed a little boy and kills himself. The movie ends with Colin getting medical attention in an ambulance. It is unclear wether he survives.

Dialogue carries the crap out of In Bruges, and it does it so well, capitalizing on the nuances of Irish dialects to give the film a quirky sense of character amidst it's dark subtext

The medium length shots with orchestra melodies gives a melancholy but satisfying feeling. Colin Ferrell's miserable attitude makes for quite humorous interactions with Brendan Gleeson. Ferrell's antsy self loathing is borderline hysterically funny. Gleeson acts as a charming father like mentor to the childish Ferrell. How Ferrell's gloomy feelings is explained by the traumatic murder of a child was surprising and a bit off putting. Although it ends up bringing a powerful drama to the script developing the main characters personality. The twist in the middle of the film makes for a over sensitive sob fest. Finness plays a haunting off the handle mad man that does an excellent job at getting his feeling across. The tension between Finness and Gleason is done perfectly. The ending was dragged on too long after starting off quite intriguing it instead became moronic. The potential for alternative endings could have made the overall film much better.

Despite its slow, unpromising start, In Bruges proves itself to be deliciously offensive and cynical with its combination of dark humor and crime thrills-featuring deft performances and witty dialogue.

With great dialogue and performances In Bruges is a must see for fans of Tarantino.

A very funny dark comedy with great performances by Colin Farrell and Brenden Gleeson, they had excellent chemistry. Ralph Feinnes was hilarious as their boss.

In Bruges is a stupid film

Romance. Drama. Violence. Comedy. Tragedy.

Excellent script, excellent idea. Black surreal humour and irony are definitely the strongest aspects of this movie.

A wonderfully crafted black comedy. Hilarious, sad, violent, and potentially offensive, this gem doesn't hold back. At times, it seems like a vehicle for Colin Farrell to act like an angsty toddler, but then someone gets shot.
