MovieMail's Review

Set against a backdrop of church spires and canals, In Bruges is a jet-black comic thriller that tells the tale of two Dublin hit men who find themselves on an unscheduled sightseeing tour of the city.

Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson play Ray and Ken Ė the first is a fledgling trigger man uneasy with his career choice, the second a seasoned killer with a taste for culture. Their dialogue and interplay is what makes this, playwright Martin McDonaghís debut feature, such a terrific film. Farrellís performance is frankly Ė and surprisingly Ė triumphant. As Ray heís explosive: with eyebrows contorting like caterpillars at war, heís a self-destructive cocktail of testosterone and crushing guilt. Gleeson is also superb as the older mentor, determined to make the most of this short foreign junket. Alas, his efforts to civilise Ray fall flat. Drugs, guns and booze enter the equation Ė and Ralph Fiennes cuts a lethal shine as the sinister Harry, the boss back home whose cockney drawl haunts the two Irishmen throughout their trip.

In Bruges

Film Description

Crime comedy directed by Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh. After being ordered to murder a priest in London, hitmen Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson) are told by their boss Harry (Ralph Fiennes) to hide out in Bruges, Belgium for a couple of weeks. Finding themselves very much outside their comfort zones, Ray and Ken are drawn into increasingly dangerous situations with locals, tourists, and a film shoot, and when Harry finds out that Ken and Ray haven't been keeping their heads down, he travels to Bruges himself to deal with the wayward pair.

“In Bruges (...It's in Belgium) Review”
by Mathew Dorrell on 2nd June 2014

In Bruges is the fantastic, Oscar-nominated Crime/Comedy caper from Martin McDonagh. And yes, he did follow this gem with the not-so-fantastic Seven Psychopaths, but t... Read on
