Nerdy video game developer (Daniel Radcliffe) is a little too fond of stirring things up on the internet with his caustic, prodding, and antagonizing comments. One night, he makes the mistake of drunkenly dropping an inflammatory barb on a broadcast of Skizm, an illegal death-match fight club streamed live to the public. In response, Riktor (Ned Dennehy), the maniacal mastermind behind the channel, decides to force Miles' hand (or hands, as it were) and have him join the "fun." Miles wakes to find heavy pistols bolted into his bones, and learns Nix (Samara Weaving), the trigger-happy star of Skizm, is his first opponent.

Gleefully echoing elements of Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the Purge franchise, and videogames like Mortal Kombat, Guns Akimbo is hilariously dark, viciously violent, and potentially -- chillingly -- prescient. Director Jason Lei Howden (Deathgasm) foretells of a future that may soon await us: drone-captured live feeds, UFC-like competitions pushed to an extreme, and online streaming platforms used for gladiatorial entertainment all around the world. As Miles navigates the underworld of Skizm, the stakes -- and the ratings -- have never been higher.

Hab ich schon länger auf´m Schirm.
Samara ist eh immer cool. Radcliffe mag ich ebenfalls.
Könnte nett werden, wenn der "Gaga-Grad" des Ganzen nicht zu hoch ausfällt...

Naja, immerhin mal was neues? Irgendwie. Gleichzeitig aber auch zu random und bekloppt für meinen Geschmack. Als hätte man für das Drehbuch 5 zufällige Begriffe in einen Hut geschmissen: Internet, Dual Guns, SciFi, Harry Potter und Hände. Wie "Free Guy" ein Konzept, das heute leider völlig an mir vorbei geht.  :frown:
