Released Year: 2017
Runtime: 90 minutes
Directors: Ben Wheatley


A crime drama set in 1970s Boston, about a gun sale which goes wrong.



IndieWire - Eric Kohn
Wheatley’s commitment to crowdpleasing antics makes it difficult to stop and consider the lack of depth. In a universe of shootout clichés, Free Fire manages to carve out its own niche, where the proverbial last man standing matters less than the journey to get him there.
The Film Stage - Jared Mobarak
A surefire cult classic in the making, its unhinged carnage proves a memorable delight. It may not be original, but it’s an adrenaline shot I sorely craved.
Consequence of Sound - Sarah Kurchak
Free Fire might be a trifle of a quippy, feature-length shootout, but it’s the best damned trifle of a quippy, feature-length shootout you’ll ever see.
Screen International - Wendy Ide
It’s a bruisingly effective piece of entertainment carried by comedy, which hits its targets rather more successfully than the wildly strafing bullets.
Variety - Peter Debruge
The fact that they could all lay down their weapons and finish the deal heightens Wheatley’s generally irreverent approach, all of which serves to remind that guns don’t kill people; insecure, overcompensating idiots do.
