A slick little joy ride that manages to gives us another great incarnation of the one and only Christopher Walken.

McDonagh's own script is too clever by half, and so over-torqued in the final act that it loses traction. But getting there is more than half the fun, as we watch the acting-notably the blithe tap-dance of Walken's splendidly off-kilter performance.

McDonagh has mostly succeeded in crafting a funny, self-reflexive comedy thriller, yet fails to upturn the male-dominated cult of Hollywood when held under closer scrutiny.

It's pure pleasure -- for both those who like crime capers and those who like mocking them.

I can't say this film is as brilliant as it professes to be; however, it is a funny, thought-provoking and oddly entertaining 90 minutes.

The film is incredibly quotable and full of memorable moments, making for a script that never stops delivering.
October 31, 2018
An underrated gem.

It's a film that will leave you puzzled, especially after a rough first half hour, but the more you open your mind to will prove revelatory, entirely engrossing and incredibly funny.

Watchable as ever, Walken and Rockwell provide two hilarious performances that should keep the audience entertained.

Seven Psychopaths unspools with clever ease and buffoonish charm. It is effortlessly brilliant and always accessible but more important, it slavishly satisfies the first rule of comedy - make 'em laugh.
November 14, 2017
A less successful picture, mostly because it's more concerned with its winking meta-textual framework than the larger humanistic concerns of his other work.
October 25, 2017
Violence may be served up in copious amounts, but McDonagh also creates characters who have no qualms going gently into that good night.

Although "Psychopaths" is an enjoyably confounding experience, some will be put off by its parade of esoteric ideas. But what a parade it is.
February 26, 2016
Seven Psychopaths may not add up to a whole lot, but McDonagh makes these small-time strivers and hoods fun to be around for a couple of hours.
May 3, 2015
I'm not sure it all hangs together in the end, but McDonagh's grasping at something interesting.
July 20, 2013
A breezy, quotable, blood-soaked treat.
June 30, 2013
The film's unique script strangely succeeds in mashing together both intense violence and grand comedy.
May 26, 2013
It's a tossup over what's more prevalent: the laughs or the body count.
February 4, 2013
Martin McDonagh's Seven Psychopaths is a sharp piece of fun that both pokes at the current climate of filmmaking while also adding its own brand of humor to the mix.
February 4, 2013
Seven Psychopaths doesn't knuckle down and decide how to answer everything tossed out for consideration, but even when it feels like little more than intellectual, postmodern spitballing, it satisfies as an exercise in storytelling.
