Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri - Movie Review

This episode of Justice & Doom Movie Reviews on The HMC, THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING MISSOURI.

It's been 7 months since Mildred (Frances McDormand) has heard from the Ebbing police with any news on her daughter's killer. Taking matters into her own hands, she rents three billboards with provocative statements to force Police Chief Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) into action.

Writer/Director Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES) knows how to do dark comedies. And it's far darker and more violent then the movie trailers let on. Unfortunately the film does not capture the American heartland with the same degree of genius that Alexander Payne (NEBRASKA) or the Coen Brothers (FARGO) have done. Nor is the writing as good as McDonagh has it in him to do -- IN BRUGES is a far better script and story. The film drags a bit and is filled with random and unresolved subplots including one with Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) as McDormand's love interest. There are some fantastic performances particularly from Sam Rockwell as police officer Dixon, who has the most complex character arc. Harrelson and McDormand are great as always. We didn't love it, but do give it some Justice primarily for the trifecta of brilliant acting -- McDormand, Harrelson, Rockwell. 7.5/10
