A definite must-see. I read the other comments and really can't add anything else. They are accurate, this movie might not be for everyone. Check it out for yourself you won't be disappointed!

A group of guys, most of them psychopathic, who live life on the edge. There is some nudity, swearing, and gun violence. If that is offensive to you, you'd better not watch. This film has dark-sided, quirky, humor. Walden is so good, as well as Colin Farrell, and Sam Rockwell. I enjoyed it, although, I don't think I'd enjoy knowing these guys in my life. That's the unpredictability of psychopaths. Farrell is a 'stuck' screenwriter, and gets some ideas from the other 2 leads for the completion of his script. The director and writer of this film, Martin McDonagh, for his characters and the direction he wanted the film to take. I thought it was well done.

Despite the big name actors, this film is mostly crap. I skipped ahead and it did not get any better. If you have a demented sense of humor you might find it interesting. I did not.
Waste of time.

Along with the "film within a film" genre the stories of the psychopaths intertwine so that "reality" blurs. The differing life paths of the psychopaths lead to questions of their role in the human community. Add dark humour, over the top violence (not for the easily upset), and strong acting from the main characters, and this film made me think about its content more than most films.

Funny and fun and smart in a dumb way. My prejudice: big fan of Sam Rockwell, but they're all great. Hilarious script.

Wonderfully self-aware in its dissection of crime/action films, with great performances from Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken.

Enjoyable but not required viewing. Seven Psychopaths is a meta movie in that it's a film that's about film, or more specifically film writing. Filmed in LA (of course) the story of a film writer & his friends who help him write a screenplay while at the same time deal with Shih Tzu loving gangster who will do anything to get back his kidnapped dog. Walken does his thing perfectly & poignantly, while Farrell definitely does the Irish alcoholic role just fine. An odd film for sure but not bad.

A very enjoyable zany flick, quirky and lopsided in several ways. Great vehicle for Christopher Walken in particular I thought, though the whole cast makes much of its oblique approach to sewing together a story. Recommended if you're in the mood for an unusual comedy.

Marty: "Y'know what I think the movie should be? The first half should be like a... perfect set-up for an out-'n'-out revenge flick." Billy: "Yeah!" Marty: "Violence... guns... all the usual bullsh*t, and then... I don't know, man, it's... The lead characters should just walk away! They should just drive off into the desert and pitch a tent somewhere... and just talk, for the rest of the friggin' movie. No shootouts; no pay-offs, just... human beings talking." Billy: "What're we makin' French movies, now? That sounds like the stupidest ending -- no shootouts?! That sounds like the stupidest ending to a movie I've ever f*cking -- NO SHOOTOUTS?!?"
