The storyline goes around with Irish contract assassins Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson) who are sent to Belgium city (of) in Bruges and told to wait for further instructions from their foulmouthed employer Harry Waters (Ralph Fiennes).
While Ken takes in the sights and historic medieval buildings, Ray is morose and withdrawn, disgruntled with the lack of local nightlife and wrecked with guilt over his accidental killing of a child. One night, while observing a film shoot with the dwarf actor Jimmy (Jordan Prentice), Ray strikes up a romance with Chloë (Clémence Poésy), a local drug dealer and thief moonlighting as a production assistant.
Ken received a call from Harry and was ordered to assassinate Ray but he was doubting to do it until he saw Ray was about to put a bullet to his own head. Then Ken stopped Ray from killing himself and told him about Harry and decided to let Ray go..
I say this movie rocks and it's more a dark comedy every lines. I have been waiting for this film like a couple of months and all i get is this movie ran out of stock (in piracy market) and it has not landed in any of our cinemas. Why??
Then next i'm going to review about The Bank Job. It's another good English drama film too. I watched it even before it screens on cinemas. But if Malaysian audiences were to watch it TGV or GSC - i got a feeling that it is rather going to be censored and more censor.. Why do i say that? It's because of our Malaysian censorship board. It has lots of breasts, nightclubs, strip clubs bouncing around too. I say if those were to be screened then Malaysia has improve a lot as in being more liberal which is a good start!
