Guns Akimbo is evidence of filmmakers who not only know how to make good movies; they also wear all of their insane, colorful, and playfully nasty influences right on their sleeves - and in this case that's just a whole lot of fun to watch.

This film is a clear and tangible example that allows us to explain what some of us mean when we defend the big screen and label the cinema as a collective experience. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's like a Saturday morning cartoon for the criminally insane, and I mean that with love.

To put simply, "Guns Akimbo" is a hot mess, but in the best neon-drenched and rock 'n roll way.

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
September 19, 2019
All in all, Guns Akimbo is a delightfully absurdist, high-octane, drug-fueled video game come to life.
September 17, 2019
Not terribly original, but energetic and fun.
September 13, 2019
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.

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

Guns Akimbo offers is video game-stylized violence mixed with adolescent slapstick humour and a lazy commentary on online addiction.
November 11, 2019
This is certainly not a film for the Harry Potter crowd, the film series its star became famous for.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
October 2, 2019
Despite an enticingly bananas premise, the follow up from 'Deathgasm' director Jason Lei Howden is something of a misfire.
September 29, 2019
The best bits of Guns Akimbo are when Howden leans away from the well-trod video game tropes and fanboy fantasies...
September 16, 2019
It doesn't really have anything to say, but the soundtrack is loud and the carnage is constant. That's what the kids want, right?

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