Twisted my heart, made me laugh out loud at Colin Farrell and sad all at the same time!

Dark comedy, with heavy themes and poignant performances

A criminally underrated dark comedy.

This was a surprisingly good movie with exceptional acting, a strong plot, great dialogue, and a fair amount of action that blossoms poignant themes artistically.

Within a sharp script, In Bruges manages to bring comedy, but drama well into a story that takes place in a city in Belgium

In one scene, Colin Farrell mutters "you two are weird" to a midget and his hooker, and I feel like this quick exchange encapsulates the entire movie.

It's hard for me to get behind a movie that has no likeable characters, but the plot is so well-developed and the characters are so interesting (particularly Ralph Fiennes' character) and the comedy comes so far out of left-field that, against my better judgment, I really enjoyed this film.

1972's The Godfather Is My Fourth Favorite Film Of All Time And 1994's Pulp Fiction Is My Seventh Favorite Film Of All Time.

A very clever and hilarious film I saw again in Irish Lit. The film is so packed with humor it very much like a black comedy. A-lister mains Colin Farrell Brendan Gleeson do an excellent job delivering their material. The final third was brilliant, due largely to Ralph Fiennes's flawless performance as Harry, which needless to say steals the attention from our leads. He just has an intensity in his eyes, and a great grasp of deadpan humor and psychotic nuance, that perfectly fit the complex nature of Harry's character. Bruges takes on symbolic meaning as a purgatorial setting. Essential viewing for fans of the Irish arts.

A very well written film with insanely clever dialogue and great acting from the three main characters. Funny when it needs to be and somber when it's appropriate as well, this film is destined to be a cult classic of the future

"A man's got to stick to his principles." Extremely well directed, perfectly executed movie. This has got to be one the most beautiful movies that I have seen.

Surprisingly charming, brilliantly dark and very funny. The dialogue is wonderfully written and Farrell plays his part superbly. A film that is becoming a real cult classic. Well worth a watch.

Such an irony made comedy. Structure of the story made me send a huge applause to the writer. Start to like Collin Farrell. Took a look into Brandon Gleeson's filmography, gonna watch all.

Just became an instant favourite.

A near perfect movie. Cast is impeccable. Humorous throughout while maintaining an extremely dark and foreboding feel.

Just remember: Harry was right.

I can't recall the last film I viewed in which I laughed so much. This film was such a breath of fresh air. Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeason and Ralph Fiennes were brilliant. Somehow this film generally is overlooked. Maybe as it's not your typical slice of a Hollywood film. My advice to all. WATCH IT. (Just be aware of young ears around you before viewing).

It's good movie to watch

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 horrible 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.
