Guns Akimbo | Ratings & Reviews

"What a great idea—a modern take on The Running Man, set in a heightened world of streamer-obsessed shitposters and in the style of Crank: High Voltage. There’s an infectious, wild energy to Guns Akimbo and much of its gleefully crude humour hits its mark well. But a reliance on shitty computer-generated blood and editing that occasionally obscures the good stuff means it doesn’t fully deliver on its potential."


"Guns Akimbo is just meant for fun, and its madcap editing style, cartoonish production design and compelling central “hero” make it at least as diverting as the games it mimics."

"[A] brash, crass, often mind-numbing ride."

"… not a smart film, but it’s a wryly amusing one that will likely please a late night audience of like-minded friends…"


"Props are certainly due to Howden himself for his visual and aural flair (the eclectic soundtrack includes the fabulous use of Dead or Alive's You Spin Me Round and Rick James' Superfreak), but the premise's initial promise eventually drains away as Guns Akimbo seemingly slavishly follows familiar beats towards a fairly predictable conclusion."


"Guns Akimbo is like doing cocaine with a thirteen-year-old boy."

"High-octane assault on the senses that plays like a cross between Crank and The Truman Show. It is as bonkers as that sounds."


"An expertly crafted thrill that'll electrify a midnight crowd. It's super ambitious and irresistibly flashy. Director Jason Lei Howden is the real deal and it's only a matter of time before more take notice."
