Kiwi filmmaker Jason Lei Howden follows up his splatter-comedy Deathgasm (2015) with this highly stylised, ultra-violent and inspired shoot-em-up.

It’s a cyberpunk story about a computer geek (Daniel Radcliffe) who becomes the unwilling star of a live streaming show called Skizm. With semi-automatic guns literally bolted to his hands, it’s kill or be killed as he faces off against the game’s undisputed champion, Nix (Samara Weaving). Energised to the max with whiplash pacing and frenetic editing, Guns Akimbo pounds the viewer to a pulp with its dynamic action sequences and pulsating soundtrack. Howden is definitely a director to keep tabs on and might just be the next Edgar Wright, James Gunn or Gareth Evans. And Radcliffe continues to impress with his ongoing commitment to strange and eccentric films.
