Man is Daniel Radcliffe a truly underrated actor. Ever since departing from being The Boy Who Lived for 8 films, Radcliffe has been on a tear when it comes to smaller underrated films. Sure they are weird and out there. But sometimes that is just what the Dr. ordered when you’re sitting at home late night with nothing better to do.
Funny enough sitting at home with nothing better to do is what gets our main character Miles (Radcliffe) into the outrageous predicament he finds himself in Guns Akimbo. If you just got done watching the Gerard Butler film Gamer and don’t want off the roller coaster ride just yet. Not to worry. Guns Akimbo will get you locked, loaded, and ready to go.
Guns Akimbo is about Miles. Miles is a game developer who isn’t too happy about how life is going for him. He goes to the dark part of the web to find some form of new entertainment as he just doesn’t have much else to do. He becomes involved in a real-life deathmatch that streams online. I won’t spoil it for you but let’s just say it’s exciting and oddly funny from the beginning till the end. My favorite part about this movie is how it includes a video game-like feel to the action as well as the overlays and soundtrack. We need more movies like this one.
If a little gore doesn’t bother you. Guns Akimbo is a film you won’t want to miss. I recommend watching late at night with your girlfriend. You’ll both be wondering WTF did I just watch by the end of it. In a good way.
