Free Fire

I like Ben Wheatley, but i don't love any of his films....until now. Free Fire is a perfect film, the acting is great, the score is great, the set design, costuming, lighting, writing, directing, every single aspect. The first 10 minutes is early 90s Quentin Tarantino, the rest of the film feels like a Martin McDonagh film. Brie Larson, a total babe, is spunky in this, Cillian Murphy is fucking great, as is Sam Riley, Michael Smiley, Jack Reynor & Babou Ceesay. Sharlito Copley gives his best performance yet but the actor that steals the show, is Armie Hammer, Armie Fucking Hammer, of all people, amazing. The dialogue is witty, the violence is Sam Peckinpah esque, and it is pretty much non stop. This was the most fun I have had watching a film in a long time, it is perfect! It makes me want to go back and revisit all of his other films, it inspired me for my own films, hell this story is pretty close to a treatment i wrote in high school, and watching this film, reignites that fire to make fun as fun, kick ass cinema, and that is exactly what this film is!
