Jason versus Seven Psychopaths

A struggling screenwriter inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends kidnap a gangster's beloved Shih Tzu. 

And it must be pointed out that the screenwriter is an alcoholic. And Irish. I'm half Irish. And have oddball friends, write screenplays and enjoy the sauce. This is like my biopic.

Seriously, this is a fun fucking movie. Our 2nd Unit Podcast Network colleague Jon Cross summed it up best: Waits. Bunny rabbit. Walken. Two guns. Graveyard. Nuff said. Awesome. Seven Psychopaths is all this and more.

For one, Colin Farrell is brilliant here. The man rocks in ensemble pieces. Too bad he can't carry a movie on his own. Sam Rockwell is the true star though. He owns this. So does the God Who Walks As A Man, Christopher Walken. And Tom Waits. Hell, they're all good.

One complaint: the uber sexy Olga Kurylenko only gets about three minutes of screen time. This is bad.

Otherwise, Seven Psychopaths is a fun, violent and quirky time at the movies. I'd recommend it, and will watch it again. Good! I also have an unholy urge to go camping in the desert.
