Free Fire is interesting to say the least and batshit crazy to say the most.
A24 has done it again.
Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, and Brie Larson in the same movie? Yeah Buddy!
There really isn't any depth to this film. It's just a bunch of bad guys shooting each other for an hour with 20 minutes of set up in-between. Honestly, it's a ridicules idea but that's kind of what makes it so fun. A deal gone bad, in this case very bad.
I really like how Laurie Rose, the D.O.P, captures the insanity of this film. This whole film is self-contained and we really get to watch as each character tries to survive. Slick editing, great lighting, and near-prefect dialogue.
This story is so simple yet so genius. It's funny and disturbing all at once.
I don't know much about Ben Wheatley's work, aside from The ABCs of Death. But I think it's clear he wanted to make something that was popcorn action movie and an experimental crime film. He got the best of both worlds.
ALTHOUGH, it can be argued that this film doesn't really know what it wants to be. I sensed some Reservoir Dogs mixed with some Guy Ritchie action to some degree.

It's...a movie. You can watch it. It looks good. The acting is not that bad. At it's core however, I'm not sure what the whole purpose of this was. If it was for entertainment, it succeeds. What's the message? Don't be a bad guy? Don't commit crimes? Crime doesn't pay? Sure. I'll buy into that.

I don't think this deserves the rating I'm going to give it but I really did have a good time with it. Perhaps on re-watch I'll lower the grade but I'm sometimes a sucker for action. A24 picks some really unique films.

Hardcore Henry (2015)
Quote: “You're half machine, half pussy!”
I am not a fan of action movies, but I was so hyped for this one because it looked different and Don’t Stop Me Now was featured in the trailer. I watched it with a group of friends in theaters and they were so pissed off since they all hated it, yet I still sort of liked it, besides it’s obvious flaws.
Pros:
+Opening credits +Unique and new style utilized in the entire length of the movie
+Unbelievably badass action scenes
+Great effects and stunt work +Don’t Stop Me Now
Cons:
-Background isn’t present -Plot is too advanced
-Villain needed more development
-Shots can get nauseating
-Ending sucks
-Tim Roth’s character was advertised in the trailer, yet he’s only in it for about a minute... stretched out in three scenes however.
Overall, Hardcore Henry may not be the greatest action movie ever, but I just like how it’s revolutionary. It’s like playing a video game except well.... not really playing the game. It’s worth a watch, but it really can make you dizzy. At least it’s different. 6/10.

#FCDCEUReboot
Needed a day off but I'm back!
Next up on my #DCEU would be #Batman: #Arkham War!
Starring #ArmieHammer as #BruceWayne, the movie would pit the Dark Knight against the various deranged criminals inside of #ArkhamAsylum, as he falls victim of a trap set up by #HugoStrange (#BenKingsley).
Various villains would obviously be showcased in this movie but the ones I picked to outshine the rest were #Deadshot (#JonBernthal), #VictorZsasz (#AaronPaul) and #ManBat (#SharltoCopley).
Batman would have to fight his way out of Arkham, while making sure none of the criminals escape back into #Gotham!
The post credit scene would show us a dark room, with #Bane, #ThePenguin, #TwoFace and #TheJoker, as they plot to take back their city!
