Cillian Murphy, Jack Reynor and director Ben Wheatley took to the red carpet at the Audi Gala screening of Free Fire at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival which runs until Sunday 26th Feb.
It’s 1978, and Justine (Brie Larson) has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen (Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley) and a gang led by Vernon (Sharlto Copley) and Ord (Armie Hammer) who are selling them a stash of guns. Everything seems to be going smoothly at first, but when shots are fired in the handover, all hell breaks loose and a heart stopping game of survival ensues.
Moving from tense caper film to explosive action free-for-all, Ben Wheatley’s latest exercise in genre marries tight choreography with an intelligently witty script (co-written with filmmaking partner Amy Jump) to create a hugely enjoyable crowd pleaser. Inspired by films like Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch, and benefitting from the involvement of Martin Scorsese as Executive Producer, Free Fire is another stunner from one of today’s greatest genre filmmakers.
