Gustavo's Review of Seven Psychopaths
Killers and assassins are very interesting characters to present in films. Sometimes are too cliché, is a matter of writing, perhaps you can find them in films like Die Hard, Silence of the Lambs, Scarface, M or White Heat. But at the end of the day, they have a cause, something really meaningful to do in the story.
When I think about "Seven Psychopaths" I can only think in films by Guy Ritchie, like "Snatch" or "Lock Stock to Smoking Barrels". A story of a bunch of killers, psychos or wanna be who just want to get rid of the bad apples in this world.
"Seven Psychopaths" is the story or Marty (Colin Farrell) a struggling writer trying to find a good script to create. His friend Billy a dog kidnapper and his partner Hans (Christopher Walken) kidnap a Shih Tzu dog owned by a Mafia guy Charlie. Marty becomes entangled to the haunt for Charlie's dog and continue with killings of most of the characters on the film, all this is happening while Marty developed a screenplay for a film named : "Seven Psychopaths" The film is hilarious is cynical. The combination Rockwell, Walken Farrell is perfect. The film is absurd but full of entertainment.
