This dark crime thriller is served up with a refreshing helping of humour. It’s about a struggling Irish screenwriter, Marty (Colin Farrell), who is tasked to write a film script entitled Seven Psychopaths. Problem is he has no story and is now looking to meet some genuine psychopaths for inspiration. His oddball friends Billy (Sam Rockwell) and Hans (Christopher Walken) are involved in a dog-snatching business, kidnapping dogs from wealthy owners and holding them for ransom. When they unintentionally kidnap the beloved Shih Tzu of a violent and sadistic gangster, Charlie Costello, (Woody Harrelson) Marty and his mates become entangled in the criminal underworld of LA.

The razor sharp script is brought to life by a brilliant cast. It’s an enormously entertaining film overall, but it’s totally offbeat and may only appeal to some.
