Free Fire

Director: Ben Wheatley.
Starring: Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, Jack Reynor, Sam Riley, Noah Taylor. UK 2016. 91 mins.

Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, A Field In England) follows hot on the heels of his last feature, High-Rise, with this all-guns-blazing action thriller.

In America in 1978, Justine (Larson) has arranged a deal on behalf of two Irishmen (Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley) to buy a stash of guns from gangsters Vernon (Copley) and Ord (Hammer), but then there’s a misunderstanding and shots are fired… The standout cast have great fun with this shoot-’em-up and the playful script’s wry dialogue as the manic standoff escalates into a bloody game of survival.
