Guns Akimbo poster


August 22, 2020


Hilarious, zany and pleasantly over-the-top. Guns Akimbo isn't the most original of films and often wears its influences on its sleeves, but there aren't many action films like this, so it's really hard to fault the film for it when the execution is so precise and on point. Weaving and Radcliffe are awesome, the cinematography is insane and the pacing/runtime is perfect. A true adrenaline rush.

Caught this at our company's movie night, so this was more of an accidental rewatch. It's a great movie for a social setting, holding the middle between light entertainment, over-the-top genre fun, and a display of cinematic skill. There's something for most people here unless you can't take the boarish attitude. Subtlety and realism clearly aren't the film's strong suit. Great performances by Weaving and Radcliffe, flashy cinematography, a fun soundtrack, and some sprawling action scenes keep the pace high and the entertainment value constant. This was just as much fun the second time around.
