In Bruges is a interesting little film. It looks like a action-film as well as a Shakespearean tragedy. The film lives with Martin's McDonagh's dialogues, and Colin Farell's assured performance. Loneliness and atonement are familiar themes for a hit-man flick, but this movie opts for a high-caliber drama rather than whiz-bang actions.
The content may initially seem daunting, but the film presents it in an accessible, entertaining manner that dares you not to enjoy yourself.
