Free Guy" demonstrates that a little originality and a lot of technical acumen can produce a fizzy summer blockbuster not bogged down in high expectations.

Ryan Reynolds endows [Guy] with an innocence and humor worth of Danny Kaye. [Full Review in Spanish]

If nothing else, Free Guy contains what might remain the best movie quip of the year.

This is no Ernest Cline novel; our emotional connection to the world and its characters goes far beyond the level of pop culture references.

An overall enjoyable movie with egregious scene forms of IP placement in film history.

Free Guy puts the lovable goofball in a action flick perfect for him that's not too serious and gives him plenty of room to, well, be Ryan Reynolds.

While Free Guy does a good job in the technical department, the overall storyline is bogged down by largely unfunny jokes.

...a lightweight and often romantic mix of Pinocchio, The Truman Show and Groundhog Day that benefits from a sunny disposition and a game, fresh cast....

Highly enjoyable and wonderfully funny, with almost as much heart as high-octane special FX sequences.

...a larger-than-life premise that's employed to predominantly entertaining (and periodically engrossing) effect...

Five minutes after finishing Free Guy I found myself looking up showtimes to rewatch one of the best films of the summer.

Free Guy is a very knowing movie, but part of its knowingness is its pop lightness -- even its blandness, if that can be seen as a virtue.

Reynolds' old-fashioned jokes are not enough to prevent the game over of this dull video game proposal. [Full review in Spanish]

Free Guy is not the movie it thinks it is. It is not a champion for originality. In fact, tag-teaming on punchlines with two of Hollywood's biggest franchises, it's hard to see it as nothing more than a corporate red herring in that regard.

A refreshing and original story about video game character's daily lives. It's as energetic as you'd expect from a Reynolds vehicle, but the real surprise here is how heartfelt and thoughtful the film turn out to be.

Ryan Reynolds' Free guy has a lot of things to say about the video game industry in the 21st Century and its gamers. The movie is astonishing when it focuses on that premise, but so much when the romantic side emerges.

Continuously fun and funny, but never feels stuffed...

While some of Levy's themes never materialize, Reynolds and company keep the film fun and running smoothly. I felt the humor in this movie, but not the heartfelt notes.

For all its perceived criticism of corporations and committee-driven creativity, Free Guy is, and let us not forget this, a wannabe franchise-starter starring a man who exclusively works within the studio system.

Reynolds is perfectly cast as the computer-code construct with a heart more human than the real-life players who invade his world, but it's hard to care about the other, more thinly sketched characters.
