Family Movie Review: Seven Psychopaths (R)

SevenPsychopaths ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernalhalf-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: R        Length: 109 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 16+. It deserves the R—there’s a bunch of bloody murder, such as slit throats, gunshots to the head, and so forth, as well as cursing and some nudity (topless women). But for mature teenagers and parents, it’s a clever, spirited, self-aware take on the absurdity of action movies.

‘Seven Psychopaths’ is an insane, ridiculous, absurd, and wholly wonderful effort from Irish playwright and filmmaker Martin McDonagh, who follows up his 2008 black comedy ‘In Bruges’ with equal daring. Simply put, ‘Seven Pyschopaths’ is gory and glorious.

By Roxana Hadadi

It’s not rare to see a movie about a struggling writer, or about a dysfunctional friendship, or about a bunch of people killing each other. Nudity and cursing? Yup, all those are pretty prevalent in today’s cinema. But it is rare to see a movie that somehow combines all those things with a wry grin and sly wink at the audience—acknowledging to us that it’s all a construction, but man, is that make-believe fun. And “Seven Psychopaths,” with all its gushing blood and cheeky humor, is that movie—it will make you think and laugh during, and it will make you think and laugh after.
