Free Guy Review: A Non-Video Game Funny Flick

Free Guy Review

It is undeniable that video games were a wonderful source of amusement throughout the epidemic, and this film is an homage to them, but it is not a feature film for gamers for that reason; instead, it has a deeper message.

At first look, the narrative appears straightforward: Guy, a bank teller, finds that he is actually an NPC (non-playable character) from an open-world video game and decides to become the hero of his own story.

The most remarkable part of the movie is that it takes place not just in the computer game, but also in the real world, Free Guy’s decisions have become so well-known that the entire world is aware of everything he does in the game.

Ambitions, professional ethics, romance, and the desire to develop oneself are all depicted throughout the narrative, yet it also touches on certain philosophical and psychological themes that are somehow balanced out by humour.

Ryan Reynolds and Taika Waititi offer outstanding performances, but Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery, and Utkarsh Ambudkar are all excellent, with Joe Keery, who reprises his character from ‘Stranger Things,’ providing the biggest surprise.

Making a film set in the universe of a video game has unique visual problems. Using Boston as a canvas, Ethan Tobman achieved a fantastic job, staying faithful to the look of open-world video games with action sequences full of adrenaline and humour. Mariah Carey’s songs are also featured.

Many allusions to the world of video games can be found in the film, including cameos from gamers such as Pokimane, LazarBeam, Jacksepticeye, Ninja, and DanTDM, as well as references to Disney characters and a cameo by Chris Evans.

Free Guy is determined to be the guy who rescues his planet in his own manner in the feature film, which is set in a universe where there are no limitations.

This finishes my review of ‘Free Guy,’ which is currently in cinemas, but before I sign off, have a wonderful day.
