Seven Psychopaths Reviews

There's not much point to a meta-film once the actual film has ceased to grip.
December 6, 2012
After a while the narrative falters, the ideas flag and it simply gets dull ...
December 5, 2012
Hilarious, unwieldy, clever, snarky and snide it may be, but it's always entertaining.

McDonagh is less saturated in film and pop culture than Tarantino and less prone than Kaufman to disappear down story wormholes.
October 22, 2012
The kind of messy, absurdist movie that can lift you out of a crappy mood-at least for a while.
October 14, 2012
This is one of the best times I've had at the movies in years.

All this narrative nesting and genre-skipping sounds very cerebral on the page, but in practice, Seven Psychopaths is as pleasurably kinetic as can be, full of double-crosses and gunplay and sun-kissed SoCal locations.
October 12, 2012
Each time it appears that McDonagh, who also directed, has written himself into a cul de sac, he off-roads the movie (sometimes literally) into fresh territory.
October 12, 2012
Yes, it's a lot to keep track of, but writer-director Martin McDonagh does so with deft humor as the film hurls toward a desert climax, foreshadowed in one of Billy and Marty's exchanges.
October 12, 2012
For about 75 minutes, Seven Psychopaths is a rollicking good movie - kinetic, clever, funny, and brutal. Then, inexplicably, it falls apart.
October 12, 2012
McDonagh sets real (and very different) moods for his stories-within-stories. The Los Angeles locations - apart from the obligatory Hollywood sign - seem fresh.
October 12, 2012
This flick never pretends to be anything but a bright hall of fun-house mirrors. And there, so gloriously distorted, gargoyles look right at home.
October 12, 2012
While "Seven Psychopaths" is indeed as crazy as it sounds, it's not nearly as smart as it thinks it is.
October 12, 2012
Too many of its moments of let's-subvert-the-genre seem to leave McDonagh stranded and flailing at just the moment when a Tarantino movie or a Chuck Palahniuk novel is snapping into place.
October 12, 2012
A toxic little bauble of Hollywood gestures, cliches and tropes.
October 11, 2012
"Seven Psychopaths" has to be counted as a disappointment.
October 11, 2012
A collection of weird riffs that not even engaging acting by Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken and Tom Waits can bring together.
October 11, 2012
"Seven Psychopaths" is a vivid illusion of fun, but sane consumers can find similar sensations in the discount video bin eight days a week.
October 11, 2012
Meta to the max, filled with clever jokes and observations that stick like barbs and deflated ones that land with a thud, "Seven Psychopaths" is a leisurely riff about movies, violence, storytelling and the art of the steal.
October 11, 2012
What movie junkie out there wouldn't leap at the chance to see merry pranksters such as Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson go nuts in something called Seven Psychopaths? It's crazy-killer fun.
