FREE FIRE (CERT 15, 90 MINS)

Evening Times - - TIMES OUT -

Chris (Cil­lian Mur­phy) and fel­low Ir­ish­man Frank (Michael Smi­ley) need to source sev­eral cases of M16 ri­fles to arm their IRA brethren. They head to an aban­doned ware­house to com­plete a deal flanked by hired mus­cle Bernie (Enzo Ci­lenti) and Stevo (Sam Ri­ley), un­der the es­cort of suave Amer­i­can mid­dle man Ord (Ar­mie Ham­mer) and his sassy as­so­ciate, Jus­tine (Brie Lar­son). The sup­pli­ers are emo­tion­ally volatile South African dealer Ver­non (Sharlto Co­p­ley) and his Black Pan­ther as­so­ciate Martin (Babou Ceesay). The ex­change goes sour when Ver­non at­tempts to palm off AR-70 as­sault ri­fles in place of the promised weapons. Free Fire is a gid­dily en­ter­tain­ing shoot-out set in a 1978 Bos­ton ware­house that draws blood with breath­less ac­tion se­quences.
