Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"McDonagh is less saturated in film and pop culture than Tarantino and less prone than Kaufman to disappear down story wormholes."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"All this narrative nesting and genre-skipping sounds very cerebral on the page, but in practice, Seven Psychopaths is as pleasurably kinetic as can be, full of double-crosses and gunplay and sun-kissed SoCal locations."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"A breezy, quotable, blood-soaked treat."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"Martin McDonagh's Seven Psychopaths is a sharp piece of fun that both pokes at the current climate of filmmaking while also adding its own brand of humor to the mix."
‑ Jeremy Lebens, We Got This Covered
"Though it seems derivative at times, it's offbeat, it's violent, it's well written, and it's well acted."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"The kind of messy, absurdist movie that can lift you out of a crappy mood-at least for a while."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Each time it appears that McDonagh, who also directed, has written himself into a cul de sac, he off-roads the movie (sometimes literally) into fresh territory."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"The film's unique script strangely succeeds in mashing together both intense violence and grand comedy."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Seven Psychopaths doesn't knuckle down and decide how to answer everything tossed out for consideration, but even when it feels like little more than intellectual, postmodern spitballing, it satisfies as an exercise in storytelling."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"The sense that the different elements don't really add up to much may well leave some feeling cold; for others, the sharp dialogue and comic beats will produce a similar fondness for the characters that In Bruges' best scenes did."
‑ Martin Roberts, Fan The Fire
"This is one of the best times I've had at the movies in years."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"Yes, it's a lot to keep track of, but writer-director Martin McDonagh does so with deft humor as the film hurls toward a desert climax, foreshadowed in one of Billy and Marty's exchanges."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"It's a tossup over what's more prevalent: the laughs or the body count."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"If it doesn't quite match In Bruges in terms of total success, it's still potent enough to indicate that McDonagh managed to dodge the dreaded sophomore slump."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Another gleefully dark comedy thriller from In Bruges creator Martin McDonagh featuring gabby killers, scabrously funny dialogue and moments of shocking violence."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
