In Bruges review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 12/31/11
Ken (Brendan Gleeson) and Ray (Colin Farrell) are sent to Bruges by their employer Harry Waters (Ralph Fiennes). Ray introduces himself to Chloë (Clémence Poésy), a local thieving drug dealer who likewise acts as a production assistant. He is designated to kill a man but accidentally hits an innocent boy. Harry comes after Ray in Belgium. Sincere acting coupled with a unique plot about principles and honor. The screenplay was funny and thought provoking in certain scenes. A few reservations this reviewer had were the lack of better characterization and a more engaging pace. Best scenes were toward the conclusion and when Ken was about to eliminate Ray in the park. In Burges is a decent comedy crime drama with wonderful performances despite a few minute nuisances.
