Martin McDonaugh’s specialty is playing with justice and morals like it’s a disposable toy, which explains why In Bruges’ main antagonist, Harry Waters, is supposedly the only person with principles in the film, which leads up to a hilarious punch line.
In Bruges is a caustic black comedy about two hit men and colleagues tricked by Harry to kill themselves. Harry proceeds to engage in a variety of horrific acts throughout the movie but insists that if he ever killed a child, he would take his own life. No one could count on the villain’s stupidity in the end, when he accidentally kills an actor with dwarfism, mistakes him for a child, and shoots himself in the head.
