In Bruges

Recommended Posts

Picked it up on the cheap from HMV yesterday and watched it straight away. One word: Brilliant. Lots of very dark comedy, although you could easily relate to the characters as they were pretty believable. Plenty of funny twists and turns and it's got some serious subject matter too. To top it all off the scenery is great - makes you really want to go there.

Don't know whether it was the Belgian connection or just the insight of a hitman but it REALLY reminded me of a more upbeat Man Bites Dog, which is no bad thing.

9/10

Yup, awesome film. Briliiant performances and a great script. Colin Farrell needs to do much more of this kind of thing.

Must be the only decent film I've seen Farrell in? can't understand why he is such a big star.

Well, Miami Vice was OK I suppose, but not great.

I laughed a lot when he karate chopped the midget.

Great movie.

One gay beer for my gay friend, one normal beer for me because I am normal ha ha ha ha

definitely one of my favourite films! bruges is lovely, as well. BUT, contrary to how the bell tower is portrayed in the film, there's actually a MASSIVE electronic ticket service thing, and chicken wire over pretty much everything at the top. sort of lost the magic...
