"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.
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 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.
