Retarded In Bruges

Ken, I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me but I didn’t, so it doesn’t.

The Basics: In Bruges is a dark comedy, which if you know me is my favorite genre. The plot is about 2 hitmen who are in hiding out in a storybook town in Belgium waiting to hear what they will do next after a job went very wrong.

The Good: There is a lot of swearing as you can see in the video below, I love swearing. Colin Farrell is the best I’ve ever seen him, he was perfect in this role. The characters are charming even while they are swinging around guns and dropping the f-bomb. Ralph Fiennes (i must mention we argued over how to say his name, I was slightly wrong but Manly Man was a lot more wrong) was stellar as the bad guy of the bad guys.

The Bad: It ended? I don’t know, I pretty much liked everything about this movie. Oh ok, one thing, I had to put on the captions for a lot of it (mostly for Colin) but then I’m pretty sure it’s just my brain that can’t process accents.

Rating: ★★★★☆
