    Too dumb to be satire and too juvenile to pull off it's style-over-substance approach. The whole film is a nonsensical mosaic of video-game violence and any intelligence is buried under piles of cringeworthy dialogue and set pieces. Huge yikes

    A snarky online troll/gamer finds himself trapped into playing a game in the real world wherein he could really get killed. In a film as fast-moving as a lot of action games and a reflection on the disconnectedness of the modern-day internet world, the heightened sense of reality could prove daunting to most viewers, with everything turned up to eleven in any given scene if at all possible but, by and large, this film proves typical at best. Most interesting simply to watch the Harry Potter star struggle to escape his continued typecasting. Samara Weaving as well works to break from the pack.

    I've made no secret about my opinions on Samara Weaving, but I was more than willing to give Guns Akimbo a chance anyway. I wouldn't say I regret that decision, but I was underwhelmed. I'm going to use a term here that I have not used unironically in... God, maybe, genuinely, over a decade, because I don't know how else to describe Guns Akimbo: Guns Akimbo is fuckin' tryhard. It's so desperately ~~edgy~~, in a way that tries to emulate works I do love, but goes too far too clumsily. I didn't hate it, at all, but I was very aware what this movie was trying to be, where a better film might have kept me to entertained to notice.

    I don't understand why this movie was made. It's a grotesque orgy of excess, depravity, and hyperactivity crying out for a heavy dose of Ritalin. I guess it's made well if that's what you're looking for or coming down from an intense, teenage sugar high. Otherwise, it's just insane.
