Rotten: It's obvious why director] McDonagh wanted to launch his film career with bang-bang instead of talk-talk. But his timing seems off.

A lot better than the standard gangster action flick I was expecting to see. It's actually a talented piece of black comedy with a quirky story, sharp script and little action. Refreshingly it's no Hollywood movie, with the lead roles both sporting strong Irish accents and offering plenty of digs at the Americans. Amusing to see Ralph Fiennes playing an East End gangster.

I hate Colin Farrell. I have never liked him personally or as an actor. I have never seen one of his movies that he didn't ruin. Until now. And worse: I actually liked his performance. I found him funny, and his portrayal of a guilt-ridden killer was actually affecting. Combine this with fantastic performances by Gleeson and Fiennes and McDonagh's sharp, witty script, and In Bruges is a very good film. The bit with the racist midget seemed out of place, and some of the subtext during their tour of Bruges occasionally got lost, but as a whole, the film is excellent - packed with Irish Catholic guilt, a mildly exciting action sequence, and some of McDonagh's best dialogue.
