In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to rescue one of their own, the players will have to brave parts unknown from arid deserts to snowy mountains, to escape the world's most dangerous game.
Miles is stuck in a dead-end job, still in love with his ex-girlfriend Nova. Unbeknownst to him, a gang called Skizm is running a deadly competition within his city in which complete strangers fight to the death for the entertainment of an online audience of millions. Miles soon finds himself caught up in the game and forced to fight in a battle to the death. Initially, Miles' lifetime of running from his problems pays off as he manages to elude his first opponent but when Nova is kidnapped, he must finally stop running and overcome his fears to fight for the girl he loves.
With his fingers screwed or braced to the handguns, Miles had lot of troubles handling many things as shown earlier in the film. He seemingly had managed to escape from the BMW car after the collision by pulling the door latch to open the rear passenger door. See more »
There are others. Skizm is a global franchise now. We're gonna be the Starbucks of murder. The Mcdonald's of massacre, yeah. We'll be the burger king of... badness.

Great ideas wasted by undercooked story
Guns Akimbo can best be described as a film that had ingredients for a cult classic but its lack of adequate direction and pacing hold it back from reaching its full potential. This film is a bit too full of itself to capture a wide audience because of its overbearing gamer culture references which easily could have been dumbed-down or removed completely. Another big problem of Guns Akimbo is the borderline amateurish dialogue which made almost every exchange between any character seem either unintentionally funny or uncomfortably dull.
It goes without saying that Guns Akimbo is not a horrible movie as it does have its moments featuring charismatic performances from Daniel Radcliffe and Samara Weaving, some gory violence and a simple enough plot, making it at a fun ride throughout. It doesn't particularly deliver on anything; there are some mid-budget shootouts and chase scenes which are fun as can be expected but nothing that you haven't seen already. This project just should have spent more time in the furnace and been decorated with more colourful toppings.
In all of its splattery glory, Guns Akimbo is very fun to watch if you can get behind the pacing, the needless gaming references and its self-assertive plot.
Final Rating - 4/10
