There is not much new at the cinema this week, so I thought that I would share my mid week movie choice. Free Fire or as I have dubbed it ‘ Do You Really Trust Me? ‘, which pretty much explains the plot such as it is. Most action movies work up to this point but Free Fire sustains it for most of it’s 90 minutes run time.
If you are looking for more than that then maybe you maybe you should look elsewhere.
So here goes with review, Justine (Brie Larson) sets up a meeting in a warehouse in Boston between some Irish guys and a gang led by Vernon (Sharlto Copley) and Ord , Armie Hammer. Vernon and Ord plan to sell some guns to them, but it quickly becomes clear that the trust between all of them gathered in the warehouse is not high.
Who shoots firsts matters not, but faster than you can say ” My gun accidently fired” it pretty turns out into a shootout for survival. Now I would like to say that there is more to it than that, but that is pretty much it along with a bit of nervous giggly humour thrown in and mixed liberally through with over the top cartoonish violence.
If you liked a certain Quentin Tarantino from some years ago then you are sure to enjoy this movie, otherwise maybe your movie choice for this week should be A Quiet Passion – it’s a nice quiet thoughtful tale about some of the life of American poet Emily Dickinson and her poetry. No danger of a shootout there!!
