The 2019 action comedy movie Guns Akimbo.

Guns Akimbo – Official Trailer

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

Miles’ (Daniel Radcliffe) nerdy existence as a video game developer takes a dramatic turn when he inadvertently gets caught up as the next contestant with SKIZM, an underground gang live-streaming real-life death matches.

While Miles excels at running away from everything, that won’t help him outlast Nix (Samara Weaving), a killer at the top of her game.

My Thoughts

I found out about this movie by accident when I saw the thumbnail for it on an online streaming video website, and if it were not for that I would not have known about this movie because no one that I am subscribed to has even mentioned this movie.

I watched the trailer for this movie and it looked like an over-the-top crazy unique goofy comedy action movie, and to my surprise it looked like something that I would either like or at least have fun watching.

My brother GC and I watched it, I enjoyed this movie even more than I had expected, and it is probably my favorite movie that I have seen this year so far to my surprise (well in the beginning-to-middle of the movie).

This movie was goofy, colorful, action-packed, over-the-top, crazy, fun, was filmed better than expected, the choreography was better than expected, et cetera movie that reminded me of a combination of several other movies like Hardcore Henry combined with Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

I was really liking this movie in the beginning, favorite of the year so far, but it started to slow down and get a bit too goofy and too unbelievable while missing some details from the middle to the end of it.

Some unexpected things did happen during this movie though that I liked, and I liked Samara Weaving’s performance as the character Nix; and the action was pretty good.

So I did not like the middle to the end as much which brought down my score for this movie, but it was still a fun watch; but it would be better if they had shortened the movie a bit and gave some more details while being a bit more logical at times.
