Excellent. Gleeson is one of those actors you can rely on, and Fiennes and Farrell are absolutely at the top of their game. The location is gorgeous, and the film balances so many things at once that you end up feeling many emotions at once.
I always thought this was a drama until I began watching it. In Bruges manages to successfully balance the dark and very funny humour with bone-crunching violence and tension. An unforgettable performance too from Ralph Fiennes that will surprise those who have seen him in other films.
tetikci, kiralik katil, cinayet, kacis, belcika, uyusturcu, cüce (iki tetikci saklanmak icin ingiltereden belcikaya gelir. Nedeni Ray'in (Colin Farrell) hayayla bir cocugu öldürmesidir. bu sirada patron diger tetikciye emri verir. Ken'in ray'i öldürmesi gerekmektedir. Ken rayi öldürmez. trenle postalar. Patron yani harry belcikaya gelip isi kendisi halletmek ister.)
What a fucking awesome movie. I'd heard great things and wasn't let down for a second. Thrilling, gorgeous, heartbreaking, laugh-out-loud hilarious, unpredictable, and brilliantly acted. Whether laughing, grieving, or gaping in horror, no matter what, I was always totally engaged. The criminally underrated Colin Farrell again confirms that he's one of the unsung great actors of his generation, and he and Gleeson make for a consummately charismatic duo. Definitely one of the best of 2008.
A dark, endlessly surprising comedy about two hit-men sent to Belgium for two weeks after a hit goes wrong. In Bruges features a plot that can't be predicted, but only relished. Very rarely does such a film appear that seems to happen as it goes along, driven by the peculiarities of the characters. Every element of the plot, including the ending, is determined by the ethical choices of the characters, and not simple plot requirements. Just watch it, already.
Has the right mix of comedy and drama for a movie set in Belgium, I especially liked some of the local touches, like characters drinking beer all the time and the finale set in a Jeroen Bosch painting.
crackling wit shines thru its dialogues, very nice dark comedy indeed; at times does give out a vibe of 'sumthin is missing', 'sumthin cud have been added to make it better'-but overall works due 2 de beautiful cinematography nd awesome performances-especially by colin-i mean dude,can he act or wat!!!now if only he knew he can act nd did so in oder movies too...sigh...
Farrel as a good casting came quiet unexpected. As for the movie it has grace rarely seen these days. Not only the use of scenery and existantial chatter, but also the way dialogueless moments are weaved into the mood characters benefits from that.
