Set in Boston in 1978, a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two gangs turns into a shootout and a game of survival.Read more

British director Ben Wheatley assembles an eccentric cast in this down-and-dirty action movie, centered on an arms deal gone bad.

Twelve angry men and one tough “bird” walk into a dilapidated Boston warehouse and proceed to blast the building and one another to smithereens in “Free Fire,” a dizzyingly choreographed — and unexpectedly comedic — shoot-’em-up in which the body count hits double digits, while the bullet count proves downright impossible to fathom. A virtuoso feat of indiscriminate gunplay from director Ben Wheatley — who is, without a doubt, the most exciting thing to hit British genre cinema since Guy Ritchie, minus the latter’s eagerness to sell out — this almost cartoonishly over-the-top action movie crosses the irreverent cheekiness of Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” with the ruthless spirit of 1970s B-movies, in which audiences hoped for a few minutes of what “Free Fire” sustains for the better part of 90 minutes.

Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man raising a child prodigy - his spirited young niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) - in a coastal town in Florida. Frank's plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old's mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank's...Read more

'Gifted' is a smart, engaging family film

★★★ out of four

“Gifted” is an engaging comedy-drama that avoids becoming too much of a tearjerker. Working from a screenplay by Tom Flynn, director Marc Webb (“500 Days of Summer”) elicits strong performances and does a good job of keeping the outcome of the custody battle in doubt. But the film lacks the depth and nuance of the Oscar-winning “Kramer vs. Kramer.”

Evans, who is best known as the resolutely dependable Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, brings a different kind of heroism to surrogate dad Frank. Grace delivers a performance that’s refreshingly free of child-actor cutesiness. And Slate (“Obvious Child”) lends an appealing quirkiness to her role as romantic interest.

“Gifted” is significantly smarter than the usual family film.
