Critic reviews

Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire is an action movie finely tuned to even the most potentially vicious audiences’ tolerances. Full review
Glenn Kenny
The NYTimes
Obviously inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s movies, as well as 1970s shoot-’em-ups, this action movie tries to be stripped down and clever, but it only succeeds at being laughably violent. Full review
Jeffrey M. Anderson
Common Sense Media
Wheatley continues an unbroken run of quality, helped by a great cast and a startlingly effective premise. This is seriously cool, stuffed with great dialogue and riddled with bullets. Full review
Helen O’Hara
This almost cartoonishly over-the-top action movie crosses the irreverent cheekiness of Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” with the ruthless spirit of 1970s B-movies. Full review
Peter Debruge
Free Fire is a stronger concept than film, hamstrung by poor storytelling and execution, despite the best efforts of the cast. Full review
Chris Agar
Screen Rant
Free Fire is not much more than a 90-minute marathon, an ear-splitting exercise that’ll leave you with a headache, but little else. Full review
David Sims
The Atlantic
The movie is meant to be a nihilist joke, but it’s all fodder if you don’t give a damn about who’s being annihilated. Full review
David Edelstein
Co-written by Wheatley with his wife, Amy Jump, “Free Fire” is full of stinging verbal parries and thrusts. Full review
