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!

"With this special advance preview not only you will see 'Free Fire' before release, but you will also have a first look at 15 mins of exclusive 3D footage from a mystery film yet to be released. "

Well that was a lot of fun. Good characters, lots of laughs and very violent.
The Ghost in the Shell long trailer in 3d looked really good.
