The story is about Two hit men find themselves living in Bruges, Belgium where they disagree on life's final consequences: death and happiness. This movie funny and it's smart with it's writing and directing. the movie is a dark comedy with some really shocking and hard to watch scenes like that boy who got shot in the church.

In Bruges is a darkly-written, smart comedy that pits a trio of fascinating characters against each other in a cross between a Guy Ritchie style actioner and a moralistic black comedy. The blending of genres works, as the pacific setting of Bruges explodes in a hail of bullets, blood, and little people.

Why is this not more popular?

Just like Pulp Fiction, this is a film that contains everything I love: Beautiful pacing, authentic acting, dark comedy, witty dialogue and characters you can care for.
Colin Farrell is literally on fire in this movie (but not literally). He is funny, he is heart-warming, he is dramatic, he is a great actor. I just wish he would pick a few more scripts like this one.
His character is burdened with guilt for an act he committed (which I will never spoil to anyone), and he really knows how to show this guilt. The scene at the park almost made me cry.
Equally awesome in the role of Ken is Brendan Gleeson.
Who knew simple piano compositions could work so powerfully? The music is so little and understated, but it has a dark undertone and a hint of cunning and what I like to call 'tip-toe m...

In Bruges

Sometimes, more than the first viewing of a movie is needed to fully understand it. I admit, when I first saw In Bruges, I hated the snot out of it. The fast talking, the Irish accents, and the all the killing was too much to bear any resemblance to entertainment. A few years later, I watch a little movie called Seven Psychopaths and find it quite entertaining and funny. It had a good build up to to end. Well, that is the sort of movie In Bruges is. It seems to be going nowhere quite slowly, but it all gets sorted out in the end with a little patience.
Two hitmen get sent by their boss to hide out in Bruges. It's a real place. It's quiet, charming, and full of history. The movie is about why these two hitmen are hiding out, their friendship to each other, and the depths that friendship ...

Good effort from Farrell

Before i watch Seven Psychopaths a film i wanted to see as well as being my first of english director Martin McDonagh's I was told to watch 'In Bruges' first as to which i did and was pleasantly surprised it was a pretty good dark comedy with some dramatic flares to it. Great casting that stars Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes. Farrell portrays Ray a newbie hitman who is wracked with guilt over botching up his first hit and killing a young boy. Along with best buddy also a hitman Brendan Gleeson (Ken) relocates to Bruges, Denmark due to orders to lay low from crime boss Harry Waters(Ralph Fiennes). Upon arriving at the historical city It's not long before Ray falls in love with a Belgium actress who is in town shooting a film that stars an american dwarf named Jimmy.

I finally saw it today, which is weird 'cause I'm Belgian and loved all the Belgium jokes.  Is there something wrong with me...? ;)

I thought Colin Farrell's performance was great, very funny but very touching at the same time.  Flemish Belgian people have a very different accent than that spoken by the actors in the movie though, but I'm sure nobody outside of Belgium would notice that.

I think it was one of Colin Farrell's best parts yet.  He was dynamite.  Slow start to the film, but builds nicely to the end

I really really liked "In Bruges". Its different and offers a great, yet odd mixture of dark comedy and drama. I thought the proformances by Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Finnes, and Colin Farrell were some of the best of last year.
