Synopsis 4 stars out of 5 -- It’s an intelligent piece of thriller engineering, oiled with ’70s style and some wonderful lines. It’s also seasoned with some choice soundtrack cuts...4 stars out of 5 -- Wheatley’s economy of storytelling is impressive here....Comparisons to RESERVOIR DOGS are probably inevitable given the warehouse setting, copious firearms and endlessly quotable script, but this is a sleeker and more violent film.FREE FIRE achieves and sustains its sense of carefully orchestrated chaos for nearly a full hour...4 stars out of 5 -- FREE FIRE cements Wheatley and Jump’s reputation as the UK’s most vigorously anarchic film-making duo. Unlike their hapless protagonists, they actually hit their targets.[I]f the film has only one note to play, it plays it with a certain slapstick panache, landing closer to RESERVOIR DOGS than THE BOONDOCK SAINTS on the quality spectrum of movies about loquacious lowlifes with itchy trigger fingers. -- Grade: B-[F]erocious, funny and relentless....In smartly examining the foibles and fragility of the male psyche, Wheatley and Jump also make the case for self-awareness and understanding.The film is a formal exercise in spectacle under constraint: An extended standoff in a contained space surprisingly full of hazards.[Y]ou’ll get a kick out of Academy Award winner Brie Larson becoming bloody and muddy and nasty as she shoots to kill and takes a few hits of her own...3 stars out of 4 -- [Wheatley's] infectious sense of glee in choreographing all the pumped-up mayhem for its own pulped-out sake goes a long way to selling the movie.A tough-as-nails businesswoman (Brie Larson) heads to an abandoned warehouse to negotiate an illegal arms deal between IRA soldiers and a group of gunrunners. However, the tense meeting becomes a massive shoot-out when an argument between two flunkies on opposing sides suddenly turns violent. Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley, Jack Reynor, Noah Taylor, Michael Smiley, Enzo Cilenti, Sam Riley, and Babou Ceesay co-star in this action thriller set in 1970s Boston, which directed by Ben Wheatley (KILL LIST, HIGH-RISE) and executive produced by Martin Scorsese.
