Dir. Ben Wheatley. UK, 2015. 1h 31m. Starring Cillian Murphy, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Sharlto Copley, Jack Reynor, Babou Ceesay, Enzo Cilenti, Sam Riley.
One room. Two wise-cracking gangs. Everyone’s got a gun, and absolutely no one is in control. Ben Wheatley’s rip-roaring shootout comedy set in 1970s Boston is bold, bloody and wickedly funny.
'More fun than a hopped-up helicopter joy ride’ ★★★★ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
What might be messy in less capable hands is simply dynamic here. The film's fiery energy is amped up by its suitably warm lensing, all oranges, browns and rusty reds.’ Simran Hans, Sight and Sound
