Free Fire - Ben Wheatley

I went to see a Q&A showing of this last night and it's pretty enjoyable.

I don't think anything Ben's done since Kill List has really lived up that film and this certainly doesn't either, but there's enough good lines and a generally humorous tone that just about carries it through its compact running time.

In the Q&A afterwards Ben said they got through around 7,000 rounds of ammo, so that should tell you how kinetic and nonstop the action is.

I'd recommend it but it's a bit slight overall.

My girlfriend actually won a competition to see the UK premier at the closing of the BFI film festival last year.

I agree, that the plot is pretty slight but it's funny throughout most of the movie. Sort of like Reservoir Dogs mixed with Hot Fuzz!
