Miles (Daniel Radcliffe) dreamed of becoming a real hero as a child. He wanted to save people in incredible ways thanks to his superpowers like, for example, flying. But then the boy grew up. Now he's an ordinary boring video game developer who creates trash games for mobile phones instead of high-budget blockbusters. After breaking up with his girlfriend and getting bogged down in a routine, Miles spends all his free time trolling random people on the Internet and watching the underground reality show Skizm, where people kill each other in reality. Having trolled the wrong person, Miles himself becomes an unwitting participant in a real survival game with two guns tightly bolted to his hands. Miles has a task to be completed in 24 hours – to kill Nix (Samara Weaving), who is now at the top of the list of the most dangerous killers in this game, and, at the same time, possibly save his love. How can a guy who leaves the house on holidays and is afraid of everything cope with this? He does not know the answer to this question, but it is interesting to observe him in such circumstances. Combining comedy and bloody trash, the authors capture the audience's attention, showing both comical and crisis situations on the screen. Naturally, there is an element of predictability here, but you will remember Radcliffe in fur slippers and a robe with two guns forever. With guns nailed to his hands, Miles cannot even put pants on, and an attempt to escape from Nix and the police makes him end up in the most stupid situations. At the same time, the creators of Guns Akimbo are not afraid to quote game classics. In the movie, you can see references to Max Payne, GTA, or Super Mario. And all this looks appropriate. And, of course, it should please experienced gamers. On the one hand, the concept of Guns Akimbo is not new, but on the other hand, it nevertheless has some original ideas. They are not always successful, and the obvious moralizing looks weird. But this is where the movie's shortcomings essentially end, and the director Jason Lei Howden can only be praised for the rest.
