Set in Boston in 1978, a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two gangs turns into a shootout and a game of survival.
Action Crime Thriller - This is a violent, dark action comedy set in the 1970s that is

ensemble piece with some recognizable faces such as Brie Larson,
Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, and Sharlto Copley. Bloody violence,
constant language, and drug use make the film not for kids.

Roger EbertFull Review Average "Free Fire" is neither the best nor the worst of the Tarantino wannabes; at its worst, it's tediously unoriginal, and at its best, it's funny and reasonably involving. Either way, its temporal distance from "Reservoir Dogs"....makes it noteworthy.

Slant MagazineFull Review Good A utilitarian exploitation flick unmoored from the demands of plot or character, the film uses it's barebones structure to highlight the role of cash as a conduit for our worst human impulses, setting up a violent blowout from which no heroism can emerge...
