Storyline

Multiple bullets, multiple targets, one name. Pop quiz: someone is running around London killing your namesake. What do you do? Do you run? Do you stay and fight? If you're quasi-famous YouTuber Ben Lyk (Eugene Simon of Game of Thrones), you vlog about it and hope for the best. That is, until Scotland Yard, in order to sort this mess out, rounds him up along with every other Ben Lyk in town keeping them holed up in a safe house that isn't so safe. And once the Ben Lyk's begin dropping one by one, it's a mad dash to figure out why this is even happening.

Trivia

When Ben Lyk (Eugene Simon) enters the apartment where he's rescued by the police before being taken to the isolated house with the other Lyks, you can see on the left of the screen a series of selfies and pictures of Ben. Those are taken directly from Eugene Simon's own Instagram account. See more »

The British used to be funny.....
11 May 2020 | by s3276169See all my reviews

I'm not sure what happened to British comedy ("cough....woke") but humour is no longer their strong suit.

"Kill Ben Lyk" isn't funny. Its premise and characters follow a predictable tired trajectory, accompanied by hackneyed humour, that's simply put, unintelligent and boring.

I managed about thirty minutes before giving up. The acting is fine but so much else is uninspired, there is little left to say.

May suit the easy pleased but, I suspect, it will irritate the discerning.

3/10.
