A 2008 tragicomedy about two hitmen hiding out in UsefulNotes/{{Belgium}}. Ray (Colin Farrell) is a rookie with a foul mouth, a fouler disposition, and a bizarre obsession with "midgets". Ken (Creator/BrendanGleeson) is an experienced professional with intellectual interests and curiosity about the medieval city's history (though he's no slouch in the profanity department). They spend their days exploring the city, waiting for [[BadBoss their even more foul-mouthed boss]] to call them and tell them what to do next, all the while providing much witty commentary about [[WorldLimitedToThePlot beautiful-but-boring Bruges]].

** In the flashback, the priest's last words after getting shot by Ray are "The boy" as he falls over. At the end after getting shot repeatedly, Ray says the same thing before falling over. In both cases, the shooters see that they accidentally killed someone, a kid by Ray, and a midget dressed like a kid by Harry, though he thought he had killed an actual child.

** Earlier in the film, Ray claims the buildings will look better at night when they're all lit up. [[spoiler: In the film's climax, the very same lights prevent Ken from seeing down to the street and shooting Harry.]]

* MoreDakka: Averted by Harry's choice of weapon when buying guns. He is offered an Uzi, but is disdainful of it, asking for "a normal gun for a normal person".

[[spoiler:Considering his accuracy with the pistol from distance in the shootout aiming for and hitting a moving target (Ray) in centre mass with just the iron sights, this may have been for the best.]]

Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: A complete aversion - especially during the final scenes, where people react with surprise, shock and horror to what the main characters do.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: Harry may be a foulmouthed violent psychopath, but there's no arguing with his logic on this point.
-->'''Harry''': I'm sorry Ken. But you can't [[spoiler:kill a kid]] and expect to get away with it. You just can't.

%% AssholeVictim is a Murder Mystery trope. If there's no mystery about who commit the murder, then the trope doesn't apply.


Added DiffLines:

* SirSwearsALot: Harry. Ray even lampshades this when reading his letter.

Added DiffLines:

* [[invoked]]DudeNotFunny: The "Race War" dialogue, almost everyone else in that scene was uniformly disgusted, especially Ken. Jimmy himself later blames it on cocaine, a drug that can quite easily turn nice guys into arrogant arseholes.
