Free Fire ★★

I was partially drunk while watching this, so my feelings my be slightly skewed. Here's the thing: I love single-location movies. Love them. And I love a good conceit; "a movie that's basically just a shootout" sounds like it could be compelling. I like all of these actors and the period and costumes and all that. However, it's Laying Down: The Movie. I appreciate the realness of the shooting, all the missing, the slow deterioration of everyone, but it's so damn visually uninteresting and just straight up boring for so long. The build up is good. After 10 minutes of them still hiding behind large pillars, I realized, "oh wait, this is it." A bummer.
