April 13, 2020
"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.

[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
December 31, 2019
Guns Akimbo offers is video game-stylized violence mixed with adolescent slapstick humour and a lazy commentary on online addiction.
February 24, 2020
Writer-director Jason Lei Howden's humor might have been tolerable if his film was at least reasonably imaginative.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Guns Akimbo takes aim at toxic online culture but ends up firing blanks.
February 27, 2020
This is one of 2020's worst efforts, by far.

February 26, 2020
Vibrantly photographed but ultimately as brainless as watching a video game you've no hand in altering the duration of.

Guns Akimbo manages to feel exhausting without ever really feeling exciting.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 25, 2020
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.

October 2, 2019
Despite an enticingly bananas premise, the follow up from 'Deathgasm' director Jason Lei Howden is something of a misfire.
April 30, 2020
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.

The best bits of Guns Akimbo are when Howden leans away from the well-trod video game tropes and fanboy fantasies...
February 27, 2020
Wishes it were half as zany as Crank.

February 22, 2020
For Jason Lei Howden to use Guns Akimbo to go on a self-righteous tirade against cyberbullying when his own film adds nothing to the conversation, well, he should contemplate screwing his mouth shut
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 11, 2019
Howden really wants to say something here, but all of his observations about streaming culture, dark web malfeasance, and bloodsport as entertainment have been said better by smarter people.
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 6, 2020
...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
February 24, 2020
It takes a flick like Guns Akimbo to make you stop and appreciate the craftsmanship and nuance of a motion picture like Crank.

This is certainly not a film for the Harry Potter crowd, the film series its star became famous for.

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