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...

McDonagh has enough ideas for six films, but with them all crammed into one, the effect of each is lost.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Too much is so clever-clever that it borders on the stupid.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Daily Express (UK)

It loses its way after a while but the performances are excellent and there's some jaunty dialogue.

Self-aware stupidity does not equal wit.

Christopher Walken has starred in over one hundred movies and whether he is playing a deer hunter or a dog-napper, has there ever been a better scene stealer?
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
Nigel Andrews
Financial Times
December 6, 2012
Clever, ludic, perky, perspicacious - and ever so slightly tiring.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Peter Bradshaw

December 6, 2012
After a while the narrative falters, the ideas flag and it simply gets dull ...

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

The performances are superb and the dialogue is often hilarious, but the script is both all over the place and not nearly as clever as it thinks it is.

A movie about making a movie that constantly reminds us we're watching a movie, with characters discussing what should happen in the "movie" movie that naturally winds up influencing the movie we're all watching. Kind of.

Hilarious, unwieldy, clever, snarky and snide it may be, but it's always entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

You'll definitely enjoy this film if you like your humour black and bloody.

Worth a watch if only to see McDonagh bring his magic touch to the strange deserts of America - a weird and whacked-out journey from which nothing and no one can emerge as expected.

Time Out

McDonagh is less saturated in film and pop culture than Tarantino and less prone than Kaufman to disappear down story wormholes.

If there's a certain thrill in watching bad guys getting their brains sprayed across a wall, it's surpassed by the intrigue of having a filmmaker reveal the inner workings of his own mind.

Walken is such a joy, I felt like instantly rewinding his every scene. But amazingly, he doesn't completely steal the show
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Admittedly, there are longueurs, but when it's funny, it's hilarious; when it's tense, it's powerful; and most of the time, its demented brio is a joy to watch.
