In Bruges

Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell play hitmen hiding out in Bruges after a job. It's funny, it's dark and foul-mouthed.

Definitely not one for the faint-hearted, and deserves it's 18 certificate. But damn, it's a good film.

I've not seen Colin Farrell act before. I've seen him in light fluff like SWAT, Miami Vice and Ballykissangel, but this put him in a new light for me. Brendan Gleeson is glorious as fellow Irish hitman Ken, Ralph Fiennes hams it up beautifully and Clémence Poésy is just beautiful.

I give it nine Irish hitmen out of ten.
