5 Second Review: In 'Fucking' Bruges


Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson are two hitmen sent to a small town in Belgium called Bruges to lie low after a job gone wrong. Gleeson's into the sight-seeing. Farrell thinks Bruges is a shit hole.
Pros:

  • Colin Farrell at his best.
  • Brendan Gleeson at his best
  • Lots of swearing
  • Lots of violence
  • Great lines
  • Dwarfs
  • Very very funny
Cons:

  • At times some of the acting seems a little laboured
  • Sometimes it gets a little too soppy and soul-searching
  • Ralph Fiennes, while excellent, plays more or less the same character that Ben Kingsley played in 'Sexy Beast' (which is also awesome).
  • Thats pretty much it really, the movies great.
For those not fond of strong violence, hard drug use and liberal use of the C and F words (thats cunt and fuck in case you didn't know) then avoid like the plague but for anyone who isn't a complete and total prude then check out the first movie in ages that shows us Irish for the loveable rogues that we are. "THEY'RE FILMING MIDGETS"

Very Guy Ritchie-ish. Everybody is connected in some way, and many people die- all mixed in with some great lines! Worth every minute!
