Seven Psychopaths, billed as a quirky, funny film about...er...seven psychopaths, turns out to actually be a quirky, funny, metafilm. It's directed and edited brilliantly to pace with the formation of the story over time that, essentially, becomes the very film you see. While it may seem slow in parts, especially in the beginning, I believe it's intentional to help guide the viewers through the same decision-making process of its author and protagonist, Martin, played by Colin Farrell. To describe the film would take too long and ruin what the film itself does for the viewer, so I will simply say, go see it.

outnumbered by the clock and the characters..

Seven Psychopaths

The scrutiny in here doesn't build up sincerely to create the anticipated impact and addition to that the process; if not rudimentary, certainly isn't convoluted or humorous as the makers think which open the portal of such ridiculous and dull sequences that one fails to bare it on screen. The writing is engaging as there is a lot of fresh material to catch up to and works just fine on such term, but if considered for craft, it is no "In Bruges" or "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Martin McDonagh; the director, is adequate on executing the feature and works its way up with his brilliant skills but as a writer, he needed a lot of work especially in its structure which isn't stable at all and collapses before it even picks itself up. The performance objective is fulfilled in here by a potential cast like Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson. It is short on technical aspects like sound department and editing. Seven Psychopaths is outnumbered by the clock and the characters where either the makers should have gone long and easy or hit hard and fast.

Zany, yet light on plot; Seven Psychopaths gets by on the talented cast.

Nice dark comedy. Bit messy but well acted and with enjoyable dialogs.

Seven Psychopaths features memorable characters, pretty good humor, very good performances from its strong cast and a very original storyline and style, but it is only a partially successful experiment as it just didn't work in some scenes, it was occasionally difficult to comprehend and the crime elements were overwhelming as opposed to underutilized comedy elements.

A great cast and a self-aware script collide to create an entertaining mess of a film.

The plot of this movie was as confused as it's main character. Even with an all star cast it failed to bring any humor to the screen. The only thing that I came away with from this film is that Sam Rockwell plays a good deranged looney, as also seen in Moon.

Unique in style, dark humor and tones, this bizarre comedy benefits itself with a great cast selection, terrific over-the-top performances, enough violence and even some smart satire and commentary in several subjects, all with the final resolution of delivering and odd-yet-perfectly satisfying crime flick, showing writer and director Martin McDonagh once again as a true figure with its own voice and signature, something lacking in many flicks nowadays.

Seven Psychopaths retains the signature marks from writer-diretor Martin McDonagh - like the black humour and the witty script - and adds up a bunch of great performances - particularly Sam Rockwell.

Very different. Entertaining and distiurbing.

Imperfect movie with a special place in my heart. Compared to In Bruges it's almost a disaster but, as far as disasters go, It's a fun one. Also, Harrelson and Rockwell kill it!

Came in wanting to love this, but came away thinking it was only alright. The meta movie commentary gets kinda old and is too cutesy at times.

For Martin McDonagh's sophomore picture (following his fairly excellent debut feature In Bruges), the writer seems to want to say something personal. Seven Psychopaths is blatantly trying to uncover the writing process, as well as lampoon Hollywood, but unfortunately it's meshed into an uneven crime film. A shame, cause the film initially seems to really understand post-Tarantino cool, with the slickly written dialogue between it's highly eccentric cast of characters, as well as with the humorous gore. In fact, the film works incredibly well until the last act, when the script inexplicably becomes lazy and uncreative. Any message McDonagh seems to want to say goes right through the cracks, during the flat ending. It's enough to make any film nerd stand up and scream, "What happened?!?!...oh right, the studio."

P.S. This also really irked me. Abbie Cornish and Olga Kurrlenko both have minimal roles in the movie despite what advertising would have you believe. That's right, those hot European actresses are solely on the poster for marketing purposes. Further proof that I think McDonagh needs to work with new producers for his next film.

Ha ha!
There you go, no need for fancy oscar's, a true cinema with witty dialogue and clever cinematography make this bizzaro story come to life!
a very nice surpise on the evening TV, recommended for crazy heads.

Martin McDonagh wants to be like Quintin Tarantino, but he's not even close. Don't waste your time watching this film. The Tomatometer for this film should be no more than 50%. Can't believe so many amazing actors agreed to work on it.

Seven Psychopaths is a clever, subversive, and hilarious satire of offensiveness in movies.
