#TIFF19: “GUNS AKIMBO”
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
After internet troll Miles (Daniel Radcliffe) upsets the leader of the live-streamed death match game Skizm, he awakes to guns bolted to his hands and a battle against the undefeated Nix (Samara Weaving).
Guns Akimbo is a non-stop thrill ride from beginning to end. Director-Writer Jason Lei Howden brings action and hilarity to a wholly original Story and executes it perfectly. His Script, although incredibly-fun, dives deep into our technological society and how it’s changing humanity. Along with that the visual effects are top-notch, the stunts are remarkable and there is one hell of a killer Soundtrack. If that weren’t enough, there is Radcliffe and Weaving who both bring their best game.
Guns Akimbo screens at TIFF on Mon, Sep 9 at Ryerson Theatre at 9:15 PM, Tue, Sep 10 at Scotiabank Theatre at 8 PM, and Fri, Sep 13 at Ryerson Theatre at 9 PM.
