Seven Psychopaths is not what you think it’s going to be.
You have no idea how crazy of a ride writer/director Martin McDonagh’s new flick is. McDonaugh, who previously brought us the 2008 dark comedy In Bruges, once again takes us down a dark and humorous path of crime. The movie centers around Marty (Colin Farrell), an alcoholic screenwriter in Hollywood trying to write his next big movie, and his best friend Billy (Sam Rockwell), an aspiring actor who moonlights on the side with Hans (Christopher Walken) stealing dogs for reward money from their owners. On one of their typical dog-knappings they end up stealing the wrong man’s dog.
Enter Charlie (Woody Harrelson), a gangster who will stop at nothing to get his dog back. This mistake sets off the premise and characters into unknown territories with some absolutely funny and violent results.
