Guns Akimbo

MA15+ Action

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Guns Akimbo at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

Nerdy video game developer (Daniel Radcliffe, SWISS ARMY MAN) 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, MANDY), 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, READY OR NOT), the trigger-happy star of Skizm, is his first opponent.

Gleefully echoing elements of Edgar Wright’s SCOTT PILGRAM VS THE WORLD, THE PURGE franchise, and video games like MORTAL KOMBAT, GUNS AKIMBO is hilariously dark, viciously violent, and potentially — chillingly — prescient! Director Jason Lei Howden foretells of a future that may soon await us: drone-captured live feeds, UFC-like competitions pushed to an extreme, and online streaming platforms used for gladiatorial entertainment all around the world. As Miles navigates the underworld of Skizm, the stakes — and the ratings — have never been higher.
