Seven Psychopaths Movie Reviews
User reviews on Seven Psychopaths
Great Cast. Horrible movie. Save your money and stay far far away from this one. Don't even bother renting it - it's worse than trash. Senseless graphic KILLING of both women and men. Over blown plot, terrible screenplay, bad acting. Definitely not a comedy. Christopher Walken is an Academy Award winner. Couldn't he just say no? Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson. Can't they get better roles than this?
Not much inspires me to write reviews, but the revulsion from this movie does.
Interesting that the AMC theater where we saw this now includes a PSA in their previews about what to do if there is an 'emergency' in the theater. Then they show this senseless piece of trash. See anything wrong with this picture?
I was looking forward to this movie based on the trailer, the cast and several reviews. I just didn't get it, and I wasn't entertained. One nay-sayer said "deranged'; I gotta agree. It wasn't funny; it had no redeeming qualities; it wasn't action packed, and it wasn't about revenge or punishment, just silly violence. Don't waste you time like I did.
This is a comedy about seven very funny and crazy characters whose lives are intertwined through series of events. I really liked this film and highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. This film was absolutely hilarious and I am so happy i got to see it in the theaters. I am usually not a fan of violent films but this one was really funny and had some crazy characters that would make no sense without the violence, so I guess it was a big part of this film. The cast of this film is amazing and it is worth to see this film solely for them. I mean how can a film be bad if it has all these amazing actors going at each other.
This was an awesome comedy about 7 crazy and funny people trying to kill each other. I did not really know anything about this film before I saw it, all I knew was that the cast was amazing. I am so glad my friend convinced me to see it because I was set on another film that night. This movie totally rocked and I was laughing out loud for the most of it. The characters were awesome and the cast was just perfect, it was such a pleasure to watch them work together. I think I enjoyed the dialogue the most and the storyline was incredible. Overall, if you are looking for a good comedy i suggest seeing this film .
Wow, this movie was SO deranged! I'm not sure what I'm supposed to think about it, if anything at all. By that I mean I don't know if I'm supposed to be thinking while I watch it or if I'm just to be shocked by everything that happens in this movie! The characters in the movie are definitely the psychopaths the title declares them to be, and they are all just banana boat crazy I thought. I think the filmmakers tried to be edgy just for the sake of being edgy, without putting much thought into it. The acting is good, I will give them that, especially Woody Harrelson who plays the bad guy with a fierce vengeance. I I didn't care for the girl who plays Angela in the movie, she's just way too incidental to the whole thing. I think the movie would have been better if they just tried to be smart instead of crazy. It pays to be edgy, but only if it makes sense. I'm going to go ahead and tell my kids this is one movie they are not allowed to see!
A movie with a name like Seven Psychopaths had better be good, right? It certainly conjures the expectation of something unusual and interesting. And lo, for once, the Hollywood hype delivers.
The story, if you’re wondering, is not about seven actual psychopaths. “Seven Psychopaths” is the name of a screenplay being penned by a struggling alcoholic writer known only as Marty (Colin Ferrell). His circle of close friends include a failed actor named Billy (Sam Rockwell) who steals rich people’s pets for a living; his partner in crime is an unhinged sort named Hans (Christopher Walken). Both Billy and Hans want to help Marty, which they do by stealing a crazy ass gangster’s dog (the crazy ass in this instance being played by Woody Harrelson). The gangster – named Charlie – takes no issue with offing anyone who may hurt his beloved Shih Tzu. This inspires Marty to finished writing his screenplay . . . as long as he isn’t killed by Charlie first.
Like writer-director Martin McDonagh previous film In Bruges, this new movie is about a group of demented individuals whose extremities are resolved only with more extreme remedies. The movie works best when it doesn’t worry about offending mainstream sensibilities (like when it discusses the inherent sexism in Hollywood movies killing off their token female characters . . . right before one of the film’s token female characters is killed) and it also gives all of its actors ample opportunity to shine. Colin Ferrell is especially good in his role, proving yet again that he is a fine actor when he isn’t bogged down by the studio expectation of being ‘macho’ as in the forgettable Total Recall remake. This is as good a turn as he put in in Horrible Bosses and In Bruges.
