  • One hell of a bang at TIFF

    September 9th, 2016

    Boston, 1973. Members of the IRA and an arms dealer come to an abandoned warehouse to make a deal to buy some machine guns. Everything is supposed to go smoothly until one member from the one group draws out a gun and shoots the other because of a previous incident. And all hell breaks.. Ben Wheatley's previous film, High Rise, I was not a fan of....

  • A movie with more than a whiff of cordite about it.

    April 6th, 2017

    As I write this, I'm really struggling to evaluate whether the latest film of Ben Wheatley ("High Rise") is a masterpiece or just pulp trash. It's certainly a brave and highly distinctive venture, with that you can't argue.. Set in Boston in 1978, an arms deal is going down in a deserted warehouse. Brokered by Justine (Brie Larson, "Room") an IRA ...

  • An unbelievably boring display of gun violence and not much else

    May 24th, 2017

    When I first saw the trailer for this film a few months ago, I was very intrigued considering I am a fan of Brie Larson and the trailer actually made it look like a fun time. Not to mention I am a huge fan of A24 films.. However, after finally seeing it, I can say that this movie is a snooze. If you enjoy watching a group of terrible people shooti...

  • A wonderful example of a guilty pleasure movie

    March 16th, 2017

    I watched this at a Cineworld Unlimited showing. Before it played, there was a little intro from Ben Wheatley the director. He described the movie as a fun action film, with lots of violence and lots of swearing, and that it was mercifully short. I'm not sure I can characterise it much better than that. So I'm not going to try.. When I saw the tra...

  • Like Res Dogs but worse

    April 27th, 2017

    Free Fire starts off well. Music is amazing and it gets you excited about the movie, and the dialogue works amazingly well. It's the perfect kind of dialogue. If you're an aspiring screenwriter it might make you think oh right, that's how you're supposed to do it. . The beginning may feel a bit stretched out, but when s##t hit the fan, I almost st...

  • Free Crawling

    June 3rd, 2017

    That is what they should have called this film.. Some action and a lot of crawling, like watching paint dry.. I wanted to like it but it was just too ridiculous and tedious.. No likable characters really, I wasted my time watching this and I urge you not to do the same.. Shame really, with such a great cast and a good performance it still wasn't e...

  • Direct-To-Video at best.

    May 25th, 2017

    Overall this is a very weak film thanks to the directing and lack of a storyline or even a script. I would not be surprised if you told me this film took two days to film and a week to edit, it is just that poorly done. Don't be fooled by the gun action in the trailer, the actors are literally crawling around on their hands and knees for the whole...

  • Free Fire tries hard to replicate Tarantino, but dull dialogue makes the film misfire

    April 26th, 2017

    There's a lot of respect to give when someone decides to set the entirety of a story within one location. Some would argue that it prevents the world it's set in from establishing itself as big along with not much personality. A lot of that is made up with making the characters interesting with charisma and dialogue. Good examples of this have inc...

  • Charmless witless effort to capture some of that early Tarantino greatness

    May 7th, 2017

    A meeting in a deserted warehouse between two gangs turns into a shootout and a game of survival. Starring... quite a cool bunch of young-ish actors like Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, Amie Hammer, Noah Taylor, Sam Riley. Too bad the movie can't match their potential. It only reminds us how boring indie crime comedies can be. „Free Fire" is a charm...

  • Slightly above average, but boring, boring, boring

    April 22nd, 2017

    I have never written a review on IMDb, but I decided to because I was so annoyed while watching this movie last night after reading the featured glowing user review.. I don't need a fantastic action movie to make me happy. I just need a good movie. Drama, thriller, comedy, action, you name it: so long as it's good.. This movie is only slightly abo...
