Performers, Cast and Crew:
Entertainment Weekly - 02/15/2008
"Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson enjoy themselves mightily....The roles are big, broad, violent, and strategically funny..."
New York Times - 02/08/2008
"[U]nmistakably sincere....[W]ith Mr. Gleeson's solid, stolid physicality and performance giving ballast to Mr. Farrell's lilting, fluttery turn."
Los Angeles Times - 02/08/2008
"A dark comedy with a melancholy streak and punchy sense of humor....Farrell turns his mercenary killer into a wide-eyed innocent, hilariously vulnerable..."
USA Today - 02/09/2008
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It is easily one of the best debut feature film in recent memory....As the story unspools, it grows more intriguing."
Total Film - 05/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] winning turn, with playwright-turned-director Martin McDonagh wringing bloody laughs from a jet-black farce..."
Uncut - 05/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "McDonagh has been compared to Quentin Tarantino before, and it's obviously not something he's running away from....Gleason's beatific performance is a significant bonus..."
Empire - 05/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "Farrell isn't carrying this engagingly digressive caper alone...Gleeson makes the perfect foil..."
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2008
"[I]t's a handsome picture....As a director, McDonagh's most obvious skill lies in his work with the actors. Farrell's performance has an appealingly goofy vulnerability that reminds us why we liked him in the first place."
Premiere - 02/06/2007
3 stars out of 4 -- "[With] Ralph Fiennes in an oily, fang-bearing, hilariously harrowing performance..."
Wall Street Journal - 04/02/2010
"The violence can be shocking, but Martin McDonagh's film is also very funny, and a morality play that's deeply affecting."
