Free Guy poster

I knew absolutely nothing about Free Guy going in, apart from the fact it was some big blockbuster gaming film. Generally, those are better left alone, but at least this one wasn't directed by Spielberg. The result isn't that much better though, Free Guy is a pretty bland and childish take on video games/gaming culture.

Guy is a happy man who lives in a violent city. He works in a bank, every day is filled with robberies and gunfights, while outside tanks and helicopters ravaging his city. Still, he gets up every morning with a smile on his face. Until one day, when he runs into Millie, a girl that will change his life forever.

There are some cute gaming references, but most of them are very phoned in. Performances are quite poor (not even Waititi lands his part), the action is somewhat uninspired, and the plot is a bore. What remains is noise and expensive set pieces. A pretty typical Hollywood blockbuster in other words. Big budget, no creativity.
