Free Guy

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

An exciting, romantic action comedy with a nicely written script and satisfying vfx, complimented by funny, genuine acting performances. The idea behind the film is incredibly unique, and it works flawlessly. Usually with fully original concepts like this, you can expect a lot of nuance that may render some of the plot confusing. But that didn’t happen here. It felt like one of the more relatable films with all new, organic content. That is incredibly hard to achieve, so I applaud director, Shawn Levy and his entire crew.

If you enjoy Ryan Reynolds and his signature style, you’ll be laughing throughout this film. Once again, this man understood the assignment and executed at a ridiculously high level. Jodie Comer was also quite brilliant in her sort of dual role performance. Her chemistry with Ryan was noticeable for sure. And my man Lil Rel is just a genuinely funny guy. He’s one of those comedic actors who can turn a random boring line into a hilarious punchline, solely due to his delivery. Not to mention this is his 7th film of 2021 so far, with more to come. Plus he’s a damn game show host. This man hustles ya’ll.

Like the rest of you, it feels like I’ve been waiting to see this movie for years. I almost assumed that I would be let down because I was looking forward to it so much, but it delivered in a special kind of way for me.
