From there things continue to go south as Ray and Ken get into all sorts of messes and meet strange characters, all of whom will play a part in the larger picture. His choices of projects in the past has been spotty. I’ve used IMDb for years but have never felt the urge to post a review until now. For those who might not know the name, director Martin McDonagh is an Irish playwright who won the Oscar last year for his short film “Six Shooter” about a chance encounter on a train, and that film’s star Brendan Gleeson has returned as Ken, one of two hit men sent to the medieval city of Bruges in Belgium along with his partner Ray Colin Farrell to rest and lay low after a hit gone horribly wrong. Things look up when he meets the beautiful local woman Chloe, played by French actress Clemence Poesy–you may remember her as Fleur Delacore in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire–and scores himself a date, which also goes horribly wrong due to Ray shooting off his big mouth. Language Set favourite s Login. On top of that, if “In Bruges” doesn’t end up being the funniest and most quotable movies of the year, then it should be very close. There’s comedy, beautiful cinematography, and awesome action scenes, albeit scattered throughout and absent at times when the viewer may be growing weary.
Brendan Gleeson gives a fantastically nuanced portrayal as Farrell’s mentor and friend. Certain plot elements will turn off a large segment of the viewing audience. McDonagh has created a clever script that interweaves its small cast of characters into an intricate crime caper that mixes humor, violence and true heartfelt human emotions into a brilliant debut feature. From there things continue to go south as Ray and Ken get into all sorts of messes and meet strange characters, all of whom will play a part in the larger picture. The forced waiting, a symbolic purgatory in both assassins’ struggle for absolution, gives Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell a chance to act through some marvelous comic dialogue. Let us all know what you think after you see it. I appreciated the comedy and satire working hand in hand with the moral complexity of the characters’ inner struggles. I have been deeply suspicious of Colin Farrell’s ability to read a script in the past.
It makes for a very satisfying film, one that is much more than entertainment.
Brendan Gleeson has been around forever, and is a renowned character actor. The plot was def.
However, those with the right mindset will be greatly rewarded. It was not only very funny but you were able to connect with the characters in a way you didn’t think you would. Anyone worried that Tarantino and Ritchie’s best work might be behind them, can revel in the promise dubscene McDonagh’s take on the crime-comedy genre, as this talented filmmaker shows that “Six Shooter” was no fluke and this movie begins what’s likely to be a long and promising film career.
I bought the screening tickets just wanting to bring my fiance to see some brges in person while not knowing much about the movie.
McDonagh has also brought together an outstanding cast who thrive in the material. When you consider what the budget was in comparison to many Hollywood films, “In Bruges” serves as a reminder that it is the script and the quality of the direction that makes a film. The dark comedy built around the existential quandaries of hit men has been done to death over the years. Just when you think you know sbtitles things are going, McDonagh throws a sharp curve ball at you and then another, and another, and pretty soon, what started as a two-handed talkie has turned into a hold-your-breath action flick, when Harry turns up in Bruges to rectify some business that Ken has botched.
I appreciated the comedy and satire working hand in hand with the moral complexity of the characters’ inner struggles. The dialog is super smart and wickedly un-PC while the comedy parts are as gut-busting as the crime thriller parts are suspenseful.
Only real problem I had with the movie was that it was a little bit too long, but it didn’t take away from anything. The entire first act is driven by the chemistry between Farrell and Gleason as they deliver rapid-fire patter that reminds one of McDonagh’s background as a playwright, suubtitles it makes them as immediately endearing as Vincent and Sbscene in “Pulp Fiction,” allowing for an even bigger impact as things happen to them.
Ralph Fiennes comes into the film late basically stealing Ben Kingsley’s character from “Sexy Beast”.
The supporting cast is to die for, with Jordan Prentice spot-on as a coked-up dwarf actor shooting an abhorrent art film on the streets of Bruges, and Clemence Poesy coyly seductive and sybscene as Farrell’s unlikely local love interest. It doesn’t matter, because the film is a character study more than anything, and like all good theatre, the character interplay allows the audience to forget the confined spaces.
All the actors do, as a matter of fact.
Subscene – In Bruges English subtitle
The arrival of a commanding talent has been heralded Meanwhile, Ralph Fiennes channels the scary-as-hell energy he’s used previously in “Schindler’s List” and the recent “Harry Potter” films in a limber subversion that is a frighteningly fun to watch.
I figured it would be a “hard-to-understand” foreign, indie film whose humor would be lost on a “dumb American. Why Hollywood thinks they can just throw money into a project un expect people to come to the cinema subscens beyond me.
If last summer’s “You Kill Me” was the relentlessly dark and relentlessly sitcom-y take on the genre, then “In Bruges” is xubscene hipster art film take on the theme. Director and screenwriter Martin McDonagh bleeds the setting and the material for all its worth and makes his feature film debut in superb style.

Colin Farrell has the capacity to reach these heights as well, and in fact, in this film, shows many of the mannerisms and intensity of Russell Crowe whom I consider to be the best actor on the planet. My hard-to-please fiance agreed. Going into this movie, I didn’t have the highest expectations for it.
Having seen the error of his ways, he feels the need to make right, even if he hides it with a lot of complaining and arguments, and that carries over to Gleason’s Ken, continuing his great run with McDonagh.
Ultimately “In Bruges” meanders down too many cobblestone paths, and one scene near the end involving a bell tower stretches credibility but adds necessary dramatic effect. A European film through and through, showing its deep theatrical roots, “In Bruges” works on may levels, and is a fine night at the cinema.
Two Irish hit men Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell are sent into hiding by their British boss Ralph Fiennes in Bruges, Belgium after a botched job only to learn that the most damning job awaits one of them just around the corner. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for something “different”, if you’re sick of seeing the same “hollywood-esque” movies, then please give this movie a shot.
I have been deeply suspicious of Colin Farrell’s ability to read a script in the past. Things look up when he meets the beautiful local woman Chloe, played by French actress Clemence Poesy–you may remember her as Fleur Delacore in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire–and scores himself a date, which also goes horribly wrong due to Ray shooting off his big mouth.
