It's like a Saturday morning cartoon for the criminally insane, and I mean that with love.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

To put simply, "Guns Akimbo" is a hot mess, but in the best neon-drenched and rock 'n roll way.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

I loved the frenetic, intense energy Guns Akimbo overflows with.
September 23, 2019
A spectacularly fun and exciting time whenever the needle drops and Weaving owns her badass, gun-wielding image.
September 22, 2019
It is the spiritual sequel to The Truman Show that we deserve. Our culture now craves a fanboy loser who somehow becomes a character in a John Woo movie.

That this emptiness of Guns Akimbo is merely an asterisk on the film, not the entire takeaway, serves as a testament to just how much Daniel Radcliffe's performance elevates the film.

Not terribly original, but energetic and fun.

Daniel Radcliffe is a likable action lead, but it's Samara Weaving who truly shines in Guns Akimbo.

September 12, 2019
An expertly crafted thrill that'll electrify a midnight crowd. It's super ambitious and irresistibly flashy. Director Jason Lei Howden is the real deal and it's only a matter of time before more take notice.
Full Review | Original Score: B

Guns Akimbo possesses Crank's adrenaline rush of action and mayhem, but with Dante from Clerks at its center instead of a tough guy bashing heads.

September 10, 2019
Guns Akimbo is a double-barrel blast of adrenalized chaos. It ain't perfect but [it's] a rush when it fires on all cylinders.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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.

"Guns Akimbo" feels more like a missed opportunity. It may have been pacey and some of the acrobatic cameraworks are technically impressive but Jason Lei Howden's script is so hollow that it's hard to care much about everything been going on here.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

If Guns Akimbo is meant to be a satire of gamer culture and cesspit comments sections, Black Mirror has done it more often and to much greater effect.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

[Guns Akimbo] - which kicks off as a satire on online bullying never seems to get it paddles back into coherence.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

...a slightly amateurish and tatty look to many of the edges here, which director Howden attempts to disguise with reams of humdrum flash and cybernetic nonsense...
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
March 6, 2020
The Deathgasm maestro has not just made a really dumb movie, but a really dumb movie that's also very smug: a noxious combination of imbecilic and self-satisfied.
March 6, 2020
This obnoxious and relentlessly off-putting action flick is simply a mean-spirited and self-indulgent exercise in ultraviolent mayhem.
March 5, 2020
The film is a perfect example of a promising concept being ruined by a visually and audibly obnoxious execution. Its nonstop video game references make Guns Akimbo feel like a film that is too aware for its own good.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 1, 2020
Guns Akimbo manages to feel exhausting without ever really feeling exciting.
