Director Ben Wheatley is known for lots of violent bloodshed. This time, he amps it up to eliminate any semblance of narrative. After a setup about the sale of some guns and a few minutes of meaningless verbal interplay, the shooting begins and doesn’t let up. This is one of those action films with dark humor (it’s British, after all) and eccentric characters (Sharito Copley is the most fun). It’s the style that made the names of directors like Guy Ritchie and Matthew Vaughn, and frankly, they’ve been better at it. True to form, there are a few humorous moments and some memorable bloodshed, but it’s mostly just people shooting at each other (and usually missing). Aimless gunfire for over an hour.

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
