  1. Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    4 stars for Frances McDormand's powerful performance. 2 stars for the implausible plot which completely derails in the final act of the film. Frances McDormand's character of a tenacious mother struggling to discover who raped and murdered her daughter is the heart of this movie. Unfortunately there is too much emphasis on making one of the racist redneck cops some sort of hero. Absolutely disappointing ending.

  2. Dana Henson's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    McDonagh is a master of dark comedy. This is probably his most grounded and emotional story but peppered with some of his most shocking, disturbing moments. The range of emotions I felt for every character was pretty remarkable. You don't really "root" for anyone. No character is really in the right. All you can do is wait to see how the conflict will rise to the next level.

  3. jenstor's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

  4. aliasgenius's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    4.5/5 Outstanding. Evokes a gamut of emotions.

  5. Django's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    The film's greatest strength is the quality of the performances by everyone involved. Its greatest failing is that it hits home its message a little too relentlessly.

  6. laura's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    artificial, stagey, characters exchanging witty repartee for no reason other than to milk laughs, using the n-word as a joke, using a little person as a punchline, characters as mouthpieces for Concepts, poor and ignorant handle on police violence against the black community, three long and annoying letters recited over voice over, dumb ending, most egregiously shouted name since MARTHAAAA

  7. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    It's the Kendall Jenner Pepsi commercial, except she's passing around aluminum cans with the text "fuck you go to hell" printed on them in bold black font.

  8. A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    This is a rare film that managed to meet my expectations, yet defy them at the same time. It met my expectations in that it features McDonagh's trademark clever (and delightfully profane) humor, as well as a performance by McDormand that's beyond excellent. Yet, while it is consistently funny, it also successfully tackles heavy themes like obsession and forgiveness, while the story unfolds in very unexpected ways.

  9. Zach Closs's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Ignore those writing this off as a cheap 'cash-in' on today's political climate; it's as timeless as it is timely, and anything but cheap. McDonagh's setup is a fascinatingly ambiguous, complex and crass high-wire act to rival "The Pillowman," guided by peerless performances.

  10. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    The writing and acting is superb all around in this tragicomedy and McDormand is TERRIFIC!

  11. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    The first act is the most tedious, but once you're through it, it's so, so rewarding.

  12. doublelife91's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

  13. Mario Tomchev's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Well, as John McEnroe put it...

  14. A47's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Proof of protest; the value of a sign.

  15. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Martin McDonagh's film is a very entertaining film that is well acted and well written. However I think the film's central problem, which keeps it from being something special, is the staginess of it and McDonagh's lack of visual creativity, leading, at least for me, to have a less impactful and lasting film. Overall, I think its good, but not great.

  16. msmichel's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Audience pleasing film whose script is being over praised but definitely features some very strong performances that will feature in award season honours. McDormand is brilliant here with her meatiest role in years but the turns by Harrelson and especially Sam Rockwell deserve recognition as well. McDormand's dressing down of the local minister is sublime.

  17. Jason's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Waxing all 'hot topic' ain't gonna change that again and again McDonagh is in the business of making "edgy" pop entertainment that goes broad as hell and thus, often as not, comes off pretty cheap. I image THREE BILLBOARDS plays the audience like a fiddle. I, alas, am not the "audience." There is a more than credible cast here, however. They come in real handy. And though it is super suspect, it isn't not kinda fun.

  18. Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    After years of making entertaining dark comedy ensembles, Martin McDonagh's style culminates into a tonally perfect picture with "Three Billboards." Themes of accountability and guilt intertwine so unexpectedly well with snapshots of institutionalized racism, and Frances McDormand and a surprising, late metamorphosis of Sam Rockwell and his character propel it to new heights. One of the year's best and most enjoyable

  19. Stu Witmer's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    @ plain old tearjerker tricked out with lashings of violence and foul language.

  20. Cody Hoskins's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    An outrageously heart-wrenching tale of comical obscenities and horrific tragedy that unearths the suppressed anger and pain in shattered lives and explodes into violent vulgar chaos with no simple path to repairing the damage done. Martin McDonagh demonstrates again his knack for combining outrageous humor and grisly violence to bring out the crude broken spirit of humanity that collides with violent catastrophes.

  21. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    "There's no God, the whole world is empty, and it doesn't matter what we do to each other." The McDonagh creed, or question, is laid out more starkly than ever in the bathos-addled prankster-nihilist's latest salvo. Or just more self-importantly--its insights into the politics of race, class and justice are wincingly thin. Still, McDormand's suffering mother is a welcome new wailer in the director's vale of tears.

  22. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Three Billboards has its thematic finger on the pulse of racism, sexism, and–hidden beneath those relevant topics–the process of coping with death. It's present throughout every important character; and although it's not my favorite of McDonagh's directorial ventures, its message stays with you long after the credits roll. Also, Frances McDormand's performance is incredible.

  23. OLIVER-J's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    very damn good, 4.5. everyone is excellent in this but Sam Rockwell nearly steals the picture. McDonagh has probably made his best film here and I'm saying this as a huge fan of In Bruges. the screenplay surprises, the dialogue is written very well also being frequently hilarious despite the subject matter. of course Frances McDormand is great as usual.

  24. Ethan's rating of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Frances McDormand gives another incredible performance in this extraordinary picture that is a gut punch emotional rollercoaster the whole way through, chocked full of laughter, tears, and thought provoking hard questions backed with an extraordinary supporting cast that makes this film one of the best in recent years.
