Firing in all directions
17 February 2020 | by boyar-jediSee all my reviews

Daniel Radcliffe is no longer just the guy who starred in Harry Potter. To prove that he is a real actor and not a creature of one character, Radcliffe has continued to risk it all in a wide variety of his artistic experiments. He is ready to appear naked on stage in a potentially perilous performance, he then went with a movie crew to film in an actual jungle and he now plays in a movie where the plot goes non-stop and there can be no respite from action at all.

The main character of the movie is an unfortunate reclusive video game developer who never parts with a cup of coffee and tends to spend his weekends at home wearing a dirty robe. However, one day, everything changes when Miles is pulled out and forced to become a member of a dangerous game called "SKIZM". The purpose of the event seems simple, but that is a dangerous misconception. Homicidal lunatics are running the streets and firing at each other. Viewers pay money to watch this event, its sadistic organizers are pleased by its chaos. It is only the participants who can never feel safe.

This is really crazy but a totally enthralling experience. The movie is really interesting and holds viewers in complete suspense. You just sit and keep an eye on Radcliffe, who had transformed for this role and does not even look like himself. His hero, Miles, is a typical nonstarter, but at the same time he has the kind of luck most people can only dream of in real life. All this may be fantastic, but it is fun and smashing from beginning to end.

The verdict: You have to go and watch this movie; because it is not often that you will feel this much adrenaline! I definitely want to view Guns Akimbo one more time!
