Free Fire starts off well. Music is amazing and it gets you excited
about the movie, and the dialogue works amazingly well. It's the
perfect kind of dialogue. If you're an aspiring screenwriter it might
make you think oh right, that's how you're supposed to do it.
The beginning may feel a bit stretched out, but when s##t hit the fan,
I almost started to miss that slow, dialogue-heavy beginning of the
movie. Mostly because after that, most of the movie seemed more like
just shooting without any kind of actual point to it. It desperately
needs something more story driven there.
The entirety reminds me of Reservoir Dogs, but like a weird, simpler
version missing the charm Tarantino put in his work - apart from the
dialogue of course. The set-up is good, but the story isn't close to as
great as it could be. There's so much potential that seems to be wasted
since it comes to the weird part where the film is mostly shooting and
throwing in bits of great dialogue every here and there. It's hard to
keep track of, especially when most of the characters look the same and
the names are thrown in there so casually you barely remember three of
them. Also the structure makes the movie feel way longer than it is.
Free Fire has potential, but it needs some better way to wrap things
up, and better way to keep the audience invested in the characters.
This way it's just watching and wondering who's going down next and
what the hell is even happening.
