Movie Info

Miles' (Daniel Radcliffe) nerdy existence as a video game developer takes a dramatic turn when he inadvertently gets caught up as the next contestant with SKIZM, an underground gang live-streaming real-life death matches. While Miles excels at running away from everything, that won't help him outlast Nix (Samara Weaving), a killer at the top of her game.

Critic Reviews for Guns Akimbo

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (7)

Howden's film gives itself a good three minutes to play the amateur satirist before it abandons any pretense of cultural commentary and instead embraces every cliché it repeatedly insists it is undermining.

April 30, 2020 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

[A] brash, crass, often mind-numbing ride.

February 27, 2020 | Full Review…

A satire of overamped gamer culture that is itself too overamped to be much fun...

February 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Kind of fun if you don't expect more from it than a bratty, gore-soaked sci-fi/action black comedy about a shy gamer who learns to stop worrying and accept that he's part of an online community full of desensitized players and bloodthirsty trolls.

A spectacularly fun and exciting time whenever the needle drops and Weaving owns her badass, gun-wielding image.

September 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Anyone with an attention span above ADD levels... is likely to find this undeniably slick, energetic contraption plays somewhere between grating and numbing.
