Worse Than the Sum of Its Parts
11 February 2020 | by olesdSee all my reviews

Someone tried to blend the Gerard Butler flop 'Gamer' with Suicide Squad. Trapped in an irritatingly preachy movie about how bad The Internet is is a funny movie about an average joe with a unique problem. Without all the painfully wacky stylistic flourishes this might have been a creative R-Rated action film content to rest in it's own niche. Guns Akimbo is pretentious enough to believe it's telling the REAL truth about violence in society...when really it's about as realistic as DeadPool. Daniel is charming and the cast is fine but the dialogue is exceedingly cringe and it's trying to sneer at gamers and millennials while getting them to hand over their money. Oldsters who hate this generation won't understand half the references and younger people will just shrug. Hipsters might just ignore the dumb and enjoy the fun so add more stars if you don't mind rolling your eyes if there's a couple decent scenes to glean.
