This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

In the early 1970’s, a group of IRA operatives meet a South African gun runner and his crew, planning to take a cache of M16 rifles back to Ireland, but the arms deal goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Bold, breathless and wickedly fun, Free Fire is an electrifying action comedy in which filmmaker Ben Wheatley propels the audience head-on into quite possibly the most epic shootout ever seen on film. He has crafted a spectacular parody – and biting critique – of the insanity of gun violence. Everyone's got a gun, and absolutely no one is in control. The story of double and triple double cross is as old as the hills, but Free Fire tells it in a refreshingly new and original way which is subtly complex; it is a grin inducing, nail-biting chess game where there are only pawns in play.
