Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - Movie Review

felt bad for peter dinklage character for some reason

The problem with this film is the script was just a device to string together scene after scene of liberal propaganda. When a film’s politics come before substance, you end up with lazy acting and direction. Nothing about this film felt realistic or believable. The only reason it is receiving acclaim is because it’s producers made a list of liberal bullet points (anti-White Male, racist cops, misogyny, rape culture, feminism, etc) that Hollywood wants pushed in EVERY movie and built an entire film around that agenda. Sorry Chris, your review doesn’t feel genuine either.

What the fuck is wrong with people?

This piece of shit was barely worth watching, let alone scoring 8s or 9s all over, and even getting an oscar.

Every single piece of acting was so cringy, I had to actually forward it to stop the physical pain.

And the "plot" was all over the place.

Seriously, what the fuck people?

the ending pissed me off. I was hoping to see them catch the rapist and killer!

GeekFurious - 2018-03-17
I thought this was the best movie of 2017.

als - 2018-03-17
Am I the only one that thinks this movie although pretty decent is way overrated and full of cliches? The classic racist white cop, and the scenes that show the flash back of the daughter and when the father shows up at the house, horrible acting in those scenes

Stickett - 2018-03-17
I didn't see why this movie was so well regarded

Mega Man - 2018-03-16
This movie was a waste of time, nothing really happens in it and the ending sucks too

Andy Tihonow - 2018-03-14
I was not a big fan of the ending. Would have liked to have seen what they would have done when they reached the potential rapists house. I get your supposed to decide what they were going to do but I am just not that big of a fan of cliffhanger endings. Especially when we just had to sit and watch this movie for over 2 hours. It would have been equally as unsatisfying if it ended and we found out it was all just a dream.

Sam Rockwell is playing the same type of character here that Billy Bob Thornton did in Monster's Ball. Only far better written and a lot less cartoonish.

Benjamin Trif - 2018-03-12
This is a must watch movie I promise you will love it. My unpaid review !

Best Suicide Note of all time.

QuartuvLarry - 2018-03-11
OK, it turned out better than I thought. But DAMN! The first 40 minutes with McDormand’s character was well nigh UNBEARABLE! She was so sanctimonious and self-righteous with the fucking billboards! Christ! Even after, she still sought damaging retribution for her billboards! Rockwell’s character, though...turned the whole film around! Thank God it became about him, and not her crusading holy highness!

Eric B - 2018-03-11
Thank you

Hey Chris! I really liked the ending, and I want to share why.
As we’re told throughout the movie, hate only causes more hate. And I think that by this time in the movie, both Dixon and Mildred have learned that. I think the ending scene is perfect because by the beginning of the movie Mildred would’ve killed that fucker in a heartbeat, I think we’re meant to understand that she’s finally letting go, or not, which was probably your point. But I think that sort of goes back to the unpredictability of the film, she has learned her lesson, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she won’t kill that guy, I think that’s pretty clever

A 'Cohenish' movie . A great one !

vova47 - 2018-03-10
Very dark, depressing and way overrated movie, that has good cast but completely unrealistic story plots.

Cory Drummond - 2018-03-10
Just saw it and those Oscars were definitely deserved.

Adrian N - 2018-03-10
the ending is perfect, just because you want more!

Jacob Staten - 2018-03-10
So the message is; bully people regardless of their involvement or responsibility until you get what you want, because chances are you can justify heckling and/or assaulting the the people in your path one way or another, and everything will fall into place in the end.

mick cv - 2018-03-10
Its because of you critics saying you like the ending that these damn movies keep telling an incomplete story. I know the meaning behind it so don’t try to lecture, but I like a finished movie just like They did back before movies

Kristen Annear - 2018-03-10
Good review..im definitely going to check it out

Ala Collins - 2018-03-10
Just watched this movie and loved it!!!

Brian Zhou - 2018-03-10
the ending isn't that ambiguous to me after thinking about it. Throughout the movie you see the characters develop a lot of anger as a reaction to the escalating situation. One character decision leads to the reaction of many other characters in a cascading kind of way causing things get progressively more violent. However we observe some very pivotal moments in both end scene characters where their behavior starts to change and things starts to calm down. Namely when Dixon started to read the letter and when Mildred decided to walk away at the restaurant. The ending scene is a real test for the 2 characters and I like to think that they have made the right decision in the end given their characters evolution at that point

I agree, The ending could have been better! I wanted that SOB to pay! LOL

Moravian Lion - 2018-03-09
I do think the end was perfect. I don't wanna spoil anything, but for me, it was great and it followed the msg of the film. :)

What a shock this idiot needed a spoon fed ending.

Liked the movie, the tones didn't really mesh though.

Kip Paseo - 2018-03-08
Sam Rockwell must never be forgiven for the abomination of the remake of poltergeist in 2015! He should be shunned in Hollywood and the rest of the planet!

Christopher L Williams - 2018-03-08
That (Idaho Guy) is gonna wish he paid the $7

jack mroz - 2018-03-07
I agree with your review, accept I would give it an a+. Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell were absolutely superb! They blew my socks off. I agree with your comments about the ending, yet I would still give it an a+.

Jason Orr - 2018-03-07
You're completely insane. This was one of the worst acted movies since The Room. But that's what the retarded Tide pod generation is into, I guess.

The dude - 2018-03-07
Over rated critic

hugo decroix - 2018-03-07
This is such a waste of time .... don't watch it

Wazzup dawg - 2018-03-06
The Academy can throw all of the awards they want at this thing, but I think Woody Harrelson did the right thing. He blew his brains out just before this film got really stupid.

Dr Attary - 2018-03-06
Is anyone else disappointed Three Billboards didn't get best picture Academy Award? I'm only watching the Golden Globes from now on.  They seem to have their finger on the pulse beat of what constitutes a good film.

Max - 2018-03-06
no letter grade?

jet black - 2018-03-06
Is this better than in bruges?

Blanco Slim - 2018-03-06

Do Leaving Las Vegas

I thought the ending was perfect. While I was watching the movie I was thinking, “I think there may be some more scenes but it would be awesome if the movie ended right here”, and sure enough it did.

followtheflow2 - 2018-03-03
This movie was an absolute emotional rollercoaster!

This is an absolutely amazing movie! My favorite movie of 2017!

Jacob Thigpen - 2018-03-03
I disagree about the ending; I was content with it. Both Mildred and Jason, especially Mildred, learn to let go of anger. Yes, the ending is ambiguous to a degree, but it closed the story in a satisfying way for me. I think Mildred accepted that she may never find justice for her daughter. Eventually she’d have to keep choosing anger, guilt (apparent after the flashback), and blaming the police, or accept that finding or not finding her daughter’s killer isn’t bringing her little girl back to life. I think Mildred was greatly moved by Jason’s heartfelt attempt to catch the killer. It was the first real action the Ebbing Police had overtly taken in the film to try and catch the killer. Even as great as Willibie (spell check) was, he was only able to use words and “detective talk” in his attempts to comfort Mildred. Also, that it was Jason with all his baggage who comes closest to finding the killer deeply resonates with her. And, really, it’s obvious to me that they won’t go through with killing the man in Idaho. The genuine grin Mildred shines towards Jason as the camera fades was enough for me.

I've seen Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri 3 times now (luckily the last 2 were in the cheap theater and, luckily still, we have one in my town). Powerful, intense, I'm obsessed with it for now. it grabs you from the beginning with the plaintiff oboe? and Renee Fleming singing an Irish folksong that I'd never heard before and was used in an opera. There's something in it for everybody no matter your persuasion, ethnicity, stature ... etc. The only thing I would have liked more of is to know what happened to the character Pam, the girl that worked in the advertising office.
