Free Fire is a one dimensional film with a great cast. It all takes place during one evening and for the most part it consists of people shooting at eachother for 85 minutes. There is a dash of humor, which at times feels out of place. That becomes the core of the film, violence and misplaced humor. Read the rest of this entry »

On this vessel they find the first evidence of extraterrestrial life. We are not alone. The crew begins to research their new find and things quickly get out of control.

You are having fun in space with Ryan Reynolds one moment and in the next you are cringing at a disturbing scene with Calvin, the alien from Mars, climbing into the lovable movie stars mouth.
