In Bruges Review

| |

I didn't really know what to expect when I heard Colin Farrel was going to be in a somewhat serious film about hitmen being... well, people. Though unconvincing at certain points in the film, his performance still manages to shine with the assistance of good writing, cinematography, and a great score. Also, expect a very slow first half before the goodies come through with the rest. That said, there's really no other way to label the film other than an elegantly mashed combo of lo-fi comedy, candid character study, and an homage to none other than the beautiful city of Bruges. 7.9/10.

You do know Colin Farrell is Irish, right?

Haha I never did. He just sounded so weird throughout (I kept comparing him with Brad Pitt in Snatch when he did the gypsy accent).. but I stand corrected. Thank you!
