This is a terrific movie, and the best I've seen this year. Anyone
reading the boards will be aware of the storyline, but will be
unappreciative of the way it develops and its twists and turns. Martin
McDonagh has given us a film of multi-layers, which hits the right spot
every time. Let's hope there's more great work to come from this highly
talented director & playwright. As for the performances, well Colin
Farrell's is absolutely top notch. For an actor whose work, so far, has
seen highs and lows this is a notable high point. His portrayal of Ray
is absolutely first class, and he simply displays a quite amazing range
of acting ability in this film. The rest of the leads, especially
Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes, provide superlative support. This is
a cinematic experience that should not be missed..

Actually one of my all time favorite movies. Phenomenal acting, great plot with a twist, good script and cinematography... Just great. .

All I knew before watching this movie are the actors that are in it. I
like all the actors involved and I thought that this might be a good
movie to watch, but I really had no big expectations. But I was
surprised at the end. "In Bruges" is a really good movie, with great
dialogs and great actors and what I cannot forget to mention: brilliant
photography that presents us all Bruges. There is no panoramic scene
same like others. Just great! Movie is in some things similar to "The
Matador". There, we've got only Brosnan shining in not so good movie;
but here we've got Farrell & co. shining in very good movie. I must
admit that I didn't expect such a good performance from Farrell after
disappointing "Alexander", "Ask the Dust" and "Miami Vice"; at least
disappointing to me. So about the script.
Movie is about two professional killers Ken (Brendan Gleeson) and Ray
(Colin Farrell) who come in Bruges on some sort of vacation. There,
they must keep low profile and wait for the further instructions of
their boss Harry (Ralph Fiennes). As the movie goes on we found out
that Ray is troubled by his first job. He accidentally killed a young
boy while he was trying to kill his target. Because of that he's got
suicidal thoughts. And one more thing, Ray really dislikes Bruges. His
older partner, Ken is enjoying in Bruges and its culture, with all that
old houses, churches, towers and canals. Ray meets Chlo.
