Free Fire (2016, dir. Ben Wheatley)

A weapons deal goes bad. A contrived but slick, funny, and thoroughly entertaining action/horror hybrid that makes no bones about its B-movie borrowings. Everyone involved is clearly having fun; Wheatley’s best film to date.

The Foreigner (2017, dir Martin Campbell)

A Chinese ex-soldier targets the former IRA boss he holds responsible for his daughter’s death. Enjoyable tho daft flick which struggles to reconcile its dated Troubles backstory with 21st century¬†geriaction revenge concerns. Solid direction, good performances, and some deft stuntwork make this more than watchable.
