Starring- Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell
Director- Martin McDonagh
Seven Psychopaths is powered up by a brilliant cast.Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell & Woody Harrelson are hilarious and keep the movie rolling forward without a hitch.Rockwell & Walken steal the highlights a couple of times though.Everyone brings an enjoyable performance onscreen and its a treat to watch them.
The story is quite unique.Its about a writer who is writing the movie ,which in turn resembles much of what the actual movie is about ,sort of like Adaptation (2002) on a smaller scale.The story manages to tell multiple tales and keep the pace of the movie tight.The comedy is of dark nature and is of the right amount.It disguises much of the serious crime story to keep the mood light.The storytelling is what makes this movie even more unique.
Direction by Martin McDonagh is excellent.The movie is fast paced and he juggles the various Psychopaths very well indeed.Also the screentime was well balanced between Colin ,Rockwell and Walken ,and gives all 3 enough time to shine.The dialogues are witty and funny.
Overall ,Seven Psychopaths is a must watch ,for those who like their comedies with some crime & some unique storytelling.
