Free Fire

All guns. No control.


Free Fire
Set during the ’troubles’ in Northern Ireland, but taking place in a warehouse in America. A woman has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen wanting American rifles, and a local gang, who are selling them. But when shots are fired during the handover, complete pandemonium ensues, with everyone at the scene suddenly thrust into a heart-stopping game of survival. The film contains a lot of violence and swearing.

T. Durgin quote iconI like the idea of ’’Free Fire’’ WAY more than I like the film. Actually, I didn’t care for the film all that much.
