Free Fire is directed by Ben Wheatley and has an amazing cast with Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, Sharlto Copley and Bris Larson just to name a few. Set in Boston in 1978, with a meeting in an abandoned warehouse between two gangs that turns into a shootout and a game of survival for 90 minutes.
I didn’t think I would say this but the plot isn’t important here what’s so ever, because this film is fantastic, cast are spectacular throughout the movie and it is great to see so many standout performances to emerge, particularly given that everyone looks like they’re having so much fun in a film that is ridiculous and absurd as this.
Free Fire is easy to describe but at the same time it’s actually quite difficult because of its simplistic structure and the fact that it is literally just a 90-minute gunfight that doesn’t sound that enticing to some people, it is very ridiculous and after you’ve seen it for yourself that the absurdity and the characters and everything sort of come to the forefront and you actually see it for a lot more than it is, however all the while it is still remaining very true to itself, it knows what it is, it’s very self-ware.
However, although the adrenaline rush the urgency of the situation of the film at its core doesn’t really stop at all, the action itself does come and go, it does start and stop, there are cooling off periods where we are able to catch our breath and sort of recover, but that is also where the great character moments emerge as well as the fantastic humour.
This is a very funny film and it does rely a lot on the quippy dialogue which is fantastic by the way, the exchanges between these characters all the while giving them weight.
Guys this is a fantastic film with great characters, perform brilliantly by the cast, a great script with great dialogue, fantastic cinematography, slap stick humour that mixes well with the great action, this is one of my favourite film so far this year and I seriously and easily recommend you to go and see this film in the cinema, please go out and support this film as soon as you can, you won’t be disappointed.
