Seven Psychopaths

From the writer and director of In Bruges comes this Los Angeles-set crime comedy involving a screenwriter, the gangster underworld and one mobster's beloved Shih Tzu. Stars Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken.

Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay, Seven Psychopaths. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration. Billy (Rockwell) is Marty's best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who will help Marty by any means necessary. Hans (Walken) is Billy's partner in crime, a religious man with a violent past. Charlie (Harrelson) is the unpredictable, psycho-pathetic gangster whose beloved dog Billy and Hans have just stolen. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, presuming he lives to tell the tale.

Arm-wrestles the split between shlock and sincerity...

Engagingly off-centre, like Charlie Kaufman taking down Quentin Tarantino... often closer to chaos than it is to genius.

Meta to the max, filled with clever jokes and observations that stick like barbs and deflated ones that land with a thud.

After a while the narrative falters, the ideas flag and it simply gets dull.

Well, they have the title right.

A collection of weird riffs that not even engaging acting by Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken and Tom Waits can bring together.

Hilarious, unwieldy, clever, snarky and snide it may be, but it's always entertaining.

There's way more wit than weight in Martin McDonagh's second feature, but still much to enjoy.

Enormously entertaining, endlessly quotable, perfectly cast and packed full of the richest acting you'll see from an ensemble cast all year, but the result is ever so slightly hollow.

I love Colin Farrell and Christopher Walken, I also loved the movie In Bruges, so I knew I would like this movie from the get-go. A wacky hit-em-up movie, with lots of laughs and black humour. No one does black humour better than Colin Farrell, his facial expressions and the way he says certain lines are mint (The best humour is Irish, even when they're...

Seven Psychopaths is awesome. I love this movie. I would even say that it's even better than director Martin McDonagh's previous film, In Bruges. Every performance is hilarious. Colin Farrell is superb as always. Sam Rockwell is funny as hell as Billy, best friends with Marty, played by Colin Farrell, a screenwriter writing a script for a new crime film...

'Seven Psychopaths' is writer/director Martin McDonagh's follow-up to the wonderfully dark, twisted comedy 'In Bruges' - and it doesn't disappoint. But I'd stop reading this review if meta-movie playfulness drives you nuts and has you spitting popcorn and screaming "Pretentious bashturds!" at the screen. This is movie-making about movie-making akin to...

Perhaps not my style, interesting acting and storytelling, but I came away underwhelmed.

SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS is an unpredictable, funny, occasionally faltering but regularly excellent piece of cinema. Some may call it messy, all over the place ... I guess it is, and deliberately so, just as the protagonists themselves. It's weird and fun and sad and gross and clever and definitely very entertainig while being full of messages on a wide variety...

Seven Psychopaths Very british comedy by the guy that wrote and directed 'In Bruges', so this is similar to that of course. Think of 'Bandits', 'The Mexican', 'Get Shorty' with of splashs of 'Pulp Fiction' an 'Kalifornia'. The acting is superb by pure professionals which means if your not LOL then its emotional and your empathising with the characters....

For those who enjoyed Martin McDonagh's excellent debut feature 'In Bruges', there's much to revel in the madness of such material in 'Seven Psychopaths' which unfortunately leads to more misses than hits. Featuring a stellar cast headed by Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson and the indelible pair of Harry Dean Stanton and...
