The baroque stories-within-stories and irreverent dialogue have been done immeasurably better in the films of Quentin Tarantino.

Seven Psychopaths is one of those movies that's too cute by half.

McDonagh might have had a minor classic in the tradition of Quentin Tarantino...But by the time the characters head to the desert to pitch a tent and contemplate new screenplay concepts, we've nearly forgotten what the movie is supposed to be about.

There's never a moment in which "Seven Psychopaths" seems particularly original or inspired.
December 7, 2012
There's not much point to a meta-film once the actual film has ceased to grip.

McDonagh has enough ideas for six films, but with them all crammed into one, the effect of each is lost.

Too much is so clever-clever that it borders on the stupid.
December 6, 2012
Self-aware stupidity does not equal wit.

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.

Neither funny nor groundbreaking, resulting in a half-baked homage not a fully realized idea. But that may be enough for the target audience.

I just thought this movie was entirely too smug and self aware to invest myself in it. It was a bit tiresome. It seemed to be an exercise in cinematic onanism.

Despite a great cast, a great premise and some great ham acting - a must whenever Christopher Walken walks into frame - the movie's lack of focus keeps it from kicking out of second gear and into the kind of crazy groove it clearly strives for.

You might like this film better if you think exploding heads is a funny bit.

The bloody tale of a blocked scriptwriter and a bunch of gangsters is fun to watch (mostly), yet the bold twists and turns of its playful narrative seem to serve no greater purpose other than its own cleverness.

While his first film, In Bruges was black, fresh and funny, Martin McDonagh's follow up comedy crime caper is less on the mark
October 23, 2012
A dark comedy that leaves the fun out of funny
October 20, 2012
One psychopath too many?

On paper, a movie I should love. In practice, like watching two grad students pee on each other for two hours.

Ultimately, the experience of watching "Seven Psychopaths" is akin to watching a dog like Bonnie chase its tail: It's only funny until you realize that the running in circles isn't ever really going to stop.
