"Wheatley continues an unbroken run of quality, helped by a great cast and a startlingly effective premise. This is seriously cool, stuffed with great dialogue and riddled with bullets"
- Helen O’Hara, Empire
"To describe Ben Wheatley’s latest picture as a blast doesn’t even come close to capturing the film’s adrenalised assault on the senses. Free Fire is a bruisingly effective piece of entertainment carried by comedy"
- Wendy Ide, The Observer
"Loud, ripe, violent, bloody and blackly funny, Free Fire cocks its gun right in your face. It’s an intelligent piece of thriller engineering, oiled with ’70s style and some wonderful lines. For those craving an old-school thriller with blood on its hands (for starters), this is one hot ticket"
- James Mottram, Total Film
"A riot of cool tunes, hot threads, big hair and vintage motors, when Copley’s nasal bitching ricochets off Smiley’s grizzled obscenities and slams into Larson’s perfect poise, Free Fire is absolutely joyous"
- Tom Huddleston, Time Out
Ben Wheatley (High-Rise, Sightseers) returns with this all-guns-blazing bullet opera, starring Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy and Armie Hammer. Dripping with blood, sweat and irony, Free Fire’s bravura filmmaking pays knowing tribute to the kinetic cinema of directors such as Sam Peckinpah and Ringo Lam.
Notionally set in Boston and steeped in 1970s Americana (with threads and hairdos to die for… literally), the crackling script and knockout cast have a blast with dialogue that doffs a cap to Wheatley fan, and executive producer, Martin Scorsese.
