      Directed by Ben Wheatley (Kill List, A Field In England and upcoming High Rise)


      Cast;
      Sharlto Copley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley, Jack Reynor, Sam Riley, Noah Taylor, Enzo Cilenti Babou Ceesay


      The plot follows a woman (Larson) who has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen (Murphy and Smiley) and a gang (led by Hammer and Copley) who are selling them a stash of guns. But when shots are fired in the handover, a heart-stopping game of survival ensues.

      good thing my brain will have forgotten the trailer by the time I see the film. It looks like another of those the film in 2 minutes ones. I feel a bit like I could fake my way through a conversation about it down the pub.
      Looks like it'll be fun, though. And some good beards in there, too.

      Tempted to watch the trailer but I think I'll go in blind on this one. Glad Robbie Collin liked it; I seldom disagree with his reviews.

      Came out of this slightly underwhelmed, thought the initial conflict that started the shoot out was rather contrived and a little silly. There wasn't really enough to it for it to hold my attention the longer it progressed. That's not to say I didn't get some joy out of it, the performances were all good and it's darkly humorous but really it's not one that'll live long in the memory and I was expecting more.
      6/10

      It was better than i hoped, I did not get on with A Field in England.

      The look of fear on chubby Brie Larson's face
      at the end with the cash, and bloodbath behind her, when the cops turn up, she did not have a plan c. :D

      Armie Hammer is a big lad, so much taller than the rest, though he's 6.4, looked taller

      7.5/10
