"Less bullet ballet than bullet drum solo, Wheatley's zany 90-minute set piece borrows the right ingredients to put on a good show." -Eric Kohn, indieWire

"Crosses the irreverent cheekiness of Quentin Tarantino's 'Reservoir Dogs' with the ruthless spirit of 1970s B-movies, in which audiences hoped for a few minutes of what 'Free Fire' sustains for the better part of 90 minutes." -Peter Debruge, Variety

From executive producer Martin Scorsese and acclaimed filmmaker Ben Wheatley ("Kill List," "High Rise"), FREE FIRE is bold, breathless and wickedly fun--an electrifying comedy-thriller about an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Wheatley propels the audience head-on into quite possibly the most epic shootout ever seen on film as he crafts a spectacular parody--and biting critique--of the insanity of gun violence. Everyone's got a gun, and absolutely no one is in control.

Set in a colorful yet gritty 1970s Boston, FREE FIRE opens with Justine (Oscar-winner Brie Larson), a mysterious American businesswoman, and her wise-cracking associate Ord (Armie Hammer) arranging a black-market weapons deal in a deserted warehouse between IRA arms buyer Chris (Cillian Murphy) and shifty South African gun runner Vernon (Sharlto Copley). What starts as a polite if uneasy exchange soon goes south when tensions escalate and shots are fired, quickly leading to a full-on Battle Royale where it's every man (and woman) for themselves.
