      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Frenetic to a fault, Guns Akimbo may leave some viewers reaching for the killswitch -- but for others, its videogame-style violence will have plenty of replay value.

      Juan G It was exactly what I expected with a splash of cliche predictability and your ensemble of good and bad guys realizing they ultimately lose Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/20/20 Full Review Audience Member Harry Potter in a violent comedy? You betcha! Yet another graphic-novel-turned-movie, this film feels like Harley Quinn meets The Running Man. The story of a nerd-turned-gladiator features lots of shaky close-ups and is violent, hectic, and just hilarious. So much blood and so much laughter at the same time...who knew that's even possible? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Sam S Atrocious. Ill never forgive Daniel Radcliffe. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/03/20 Full Review donnie m HORRIBLE acting....that's all! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Mark B The set up is quick. It has some humor and a lot of violence. It is not good not bad and would not run out and tell someone to watch it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review KB B It was ok but got kind of long. I'd never want to watch it again. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Chris Stuckmann ChrisStuckmann.com Daniel Radcliffe is very good in this movie, but the film starts to lose steam once you realize that it doesn't really have much else to offer beyond these high-energy action sequences. Rated: B- Jun 17, 2020 Full Review Barry Hertz Globe and Mail 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. Rated: 1/4 Apr 30, 2020 Full Review Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) I don't get what's going on here. Are we trolling these internet guys are not? Are we saying this is okay or not? Because he wins when he does what they do. Feb 29, 2020 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews Jason Lei Howden doesn’t hold back on the brutal, violent, bloody, extremely over-the-top action, and as long as the viewer is able to accept this purposefully unrealistic depiction of a real-life videogame death match, it’s a blast of pure entertainment. Rated: B Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Kat Hughes THN Borrowing heavily from the many others, Guns Akimbo is a super-charged, hyper frenetic joy ride back to the days of violent action science-fiction Rated: 3/5 Jul 23, 2021 Full Review Matt Glasby Radio Times [B]y mimicking the breathless tempo of a video game, Howden falls prey to video-game problems: the violence is unreal and weightless; the up-to-the-minute visuals seem immediately dated...
