The third film from English director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges), Seven Psychopaths is violent, fun, and hilarious.
In the same vein of the hysterical In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths is a fantastic ride from start to finish. The ensemble cast includes Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Wood Harrelson, Tom Waits, and Christopher Walken. It is no doubt that Farrell is the main character in the film, but Rockwell is definitely the star. He steals the show by delivering a phenomenal performance and has some of the best blunt and brutally honest lines in the film.
The movie is full of fun and witty dialogue, which really makes this movie stand out above the rest. I thought the film had a great look and vision to it. Obviously, the film is fairly character driven and the psychopaths are really great!
I don't want to give too much away, but the plot involves a dog-napping scam, an alcoholic screenwriter, rabbits, violence, and of course, seven psychopaths.
My only issue with the film is that I thought it was a little too long in parts, but the other scenes make up for this lull.
Go see Seven Psychopaths in theaters this Friday, October 12th!
Seven Psychopaths is a 9 out of 10 Psychopaths!
