Default In Bruges - Anyone Seen It?

I saw that it got very good reviews on RottenTomatoes, but it was a limited US release. It looks like it'd be good, but I was wondering if anyone here saw it. It'll be released on Blu-ray this Tuesday in the States via Amazon, so I was considering getting it. Anyway, any insight would be nice. Thanks!

it won't be on blu-ray in the states. amazon imported it from the netherlands, and importjunkease has the french one.

yes, i've seen it about 4x. FANTASTIC movie. very, VERY dark comedy. very non-pc. well written, and hilarious, probably the best english language assassin movie ever made.

Yeah I rented it on dvd and really liked it I will probably import the blu ray sometime soon. It is a really good movie that almost slipped through the cracks.

It really is fantastic. Like someone already said, it is a very very dark comedy but great non the less. Colin Farrel surprised me at how well he was in his role, actually, both him and Gleason was excellent. I'm sure it'll get some wider releases now that it's nominated for a few Oscars. It has a good chance at Best Original Screenplay. After the them they'll probably release a Blu Ray edition of it.

Kind of funny I think they were running it on either Cinemax or Showtime @ 2am this morning (EST) I really enjoyed it! I'm also a Colin Farrel fan, he is amazing in this film!

It's a love or hate movie, I think. I really, really, really (maybe one more), really enjoyed this movie - easily one of my favorites of 2008.

In Bruges was one of 2008's best films. I saw the trailer and avoided the film, thinking it was just another derivative Guy Ritchie-esque zany crime escapade. In reality, it's so far removed from it's marketing campaign (like most great films, really.)

It manages to be both humorous and heartfelt without indulging in excessive, abrasive sentimentality. It's sad, sweet, poetic, surprisingly thoughtful, and still very, very funny.

It's not going to be a showstopper for your Blu-Ray system, by any means. But the cinematography and some of the gun play will really shine in HD. Give it a try.
