In Guns Akimbo, Daniel Radcliffe stars as a nerdy loser that gets put into a death match against a gun toting killer. The film revolves around a video game developer (Daniel Radcliffe) who 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. There’s no word yet if Guns Akimbo will make a local release but it should prove to a fun enough watch. Let’s hope this one appears on one of the streaming networks in the months ahead.
