movie thoughts: In Bruges

This movie was NOT AT ALL what the trailer showed me.  In fact, the box art of the DVD is also a big FAT LIE.

I might have enjoyed this movie had it been advertised correctly.  Instead, I watched the trailer and thought I was in for an action/comedy involving hitmen ala Grosse Pointe Blank.  It was not that at all.  At first, I just went with it, hoping that Rotten Tomatoes wouldn’t steer me wrong (it had a 79%).   But, alas, the film was very uneven.  It could not decide what it wanted to be – a crass comedy, a dark comedy, an arranging matches movie…it didn’t know and I sure as heck don’t know either.

And you see Ralph Fiennes on the cover?  Yeah, that’s a lie.  He’s hardly in the movie.  Brenden “Mad Eye Moody” Gleeson is in the movie, and does a good job but ultimately, this was a bit disappointment.  (The chick who played Fleur is also in the movie, it was like a Harry Potter reunion!)

Do yourself a favor and pass on this one.
