      Kristoffer K Close to all time favourite. Deep characters and beautiful told story Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review Alec C Welcome to Bruges, where things are about to go south very fast! As hitmen Ray and Ken who have botched a hit visit the town, the two take different views of the town with Ken enjoying it, while Ray is haunted by his mistake and refuses to see the town in a positive light. A darkly comic crime thriller that manages to make us question if we're beyond redemption as the chemistry between the two characters leaks in! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review Helen P Would I rate this as an artistic triumph as some have? Aside from the natural merits of the setting...no, but it's damn well hilarious when the unlikely team of very opposite hitmen are idling along at the start, and by the end the thriller concept comes good in a visceral, violent sort of climax that shocks and entertains. Maybe makes you think about life if you like to analyse, but for those who don't, you'll easily be able to kick back and have fun watching the chaos all play out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/24 Full Review Memer. D Such a cozy and unique yet uncomfortable story. This is one of those movies that just keeps upbeat and positive, keeps a smile on your face and then hammers you down and makes you kind of guilty for having laughed so much making you feel stupid. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/24 Full Review Maksym K Absolute masterpiece that intertwines dark humor with some more serious topics. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Nathan T A classic. Very entertaining and well written. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Wael Khairy RogerEbert.com With "In Bruges." it feels like Martin McDonagh opened a window in a room where the air has been recycled endlessly. Sep 15, 2023 Full Review Wendy Ide Times (UK) [Martin McDonagh's] affinity with meandering, melodically rhythmic dialogue and volcanic eruptions of profanity serves him well in this witty, wordy film. Oct 19, 2022 Full Review Deborah Ross The Spectator In Bruges has some cracking lines in it, a cracking performance from Brendan Gleeson as Ken, and some very funny, provocative jokes, but I still don't know... It's just all the violence that did me in. Aug 23, 2018 Full Review Stephen Silver Tilt Magazine Nowhere did director Martin McDonagh better manage dark comedy than in his debut film (15th anniversary) Rated: 4/5 Mar 19, 2023 Full Review Wesley Lovell Cinema Sight In Bruges is a darkly humorous film that should be seen not just for the way it subverts genre norms, but also for how it sculpts and redefines them into something better. Rated: 4/4 Dec 6, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The movie is about meaningful conversations, idleness, boredom, remorse, hard laughs, stark violence, and grotesque humor—I loved it. Rated: 4/4 Nov 3, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
