Free Fire 
Free Fire - Review
2.5/4 stars

Well this kinda sucks. No I'm not talking about the movie itself, but mostly my expectations for it.

"Free Fire" is a stylish shoot 'em up film with a Tarantino vibe to it. While I wouldn't call it original, as many are saying it is, but I respect Ben Wheatley for taking a concept like this and actually going for it. The performances from everyone were solid and when some of the humor hit, it's pretty funny.

Despite the great cast, the director, and interesting plot; I felt there was something missing from this that stopped it from being great for me. I didn't get any enjoyment or anything special out of this. After the film was over, I got up from my seat and went home without evening thinking about what I just saw. That's never a good sign.

I think if the script was more tight and the characters were intriguing then I might have cared for whats happening. And if the runtime was a little shorter, because it got pretty old after awhile. I didn't find some of the humor that funny and it felt kinda force. The only parts that I chuckle at were mostly small things that characters would do or react to situations.

I was really disappointed with this, especially if it's a A24 film which are normally great.
