An abandoned warehouse in Boston is the site of a black-market transaction: dirty money in exchange for illegal weapons for the IRA. The thugs gathered there, dressed in typical seventies style, do not trust one another a lick, so they arrive armed to the teeth. The gangsters, testosterone, drugs, stress, and the desire to outsmart the other side make it difficult to strike a deal. All this leads to a shootout, which, once it starts, turns everything on its head. Will anyone get out alive? The beautiful catastrophe created by director Ben Wheatley is not only bloody and spectacular, it is also humorous, given the one-liners flying back and forth amid all the bullets. The maker of High-Rise has put together a star-studded cast, featuring Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, Sam Riley, and Oscar winner Bri Larson-they all get a chance to pick up a gun and also show off their comedic talents.
