Directed by Ben Wheatley

Starring: Brie Larson, Enzo Cilenti, Sam Riley, Michael Smiley

Review by Gilbert Seah

Irrelevant as his A FIELD IN ENGLAND, tho hate it or love it British film set entirely in the U.S. in 1878 for no apparent reason, Bn Whetaley returns to his black comedy roots of SIGHTSEERS, the film that shot him to recognition. his is a 70’ crime caper set totally in an abandoned warehouse where a guns deal takes place.

But a previous altercation between two separate members of the different sides results in a free-for-all shoot out hat lasts the entire joie.

The humour and violence is entertaining initially, but greadullay wears out its welcome. Known names Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Oscar Winner Brie Larson and Cillian Murphy do their best to liven up the proceedings but they can only do so much with the limited amtrial.

Director Wheatley works with his loving wife, Amy Jump who wrote the script and co-edited the film with him.

FREE FIRE may work for a few but will not for the majority as FREE FALL is a queer piece for a select few.
