“Iu0026#39;ve never written a review on here before but, with everything going on in 2021, u0026#39;Free Guyu0026#39; allowed me to forget about the world for a couple of hours – and for that it deserved one!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFirstly, the role of u0026quot;Guyu0026quot; was MADE for Ryan Reynolds. It would be a crime to audition anyone else and you could tell he enjoyed playing it. Great work too by Jodie Comer (u0026quot;Millieu0026quot;) – and Channing Tatum (u0026quot;Revenjamin Buttonsu0026quot;) who literally made me laugh out loud which is no mean feat. Solid supporting cast too, although I could take-or-leave Taika Waititi despite appreciating his flair.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story itself is simply enjoyable; if you watched the trailer, leave your preconceptions at the door. Artificial intelligence and open-world gaming has the potential to snowball into a complex idea for some, but u0026#39;Free Guyu0026#39; is neither obnoxious nor existential. It is pure colour, fast-paced, funny, creative, and (better yet) UNIQUE.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe special effects are impressive; the soundtrack is uplifting, mainly thanks to a Mariah Carey classic; and I walked out the cinema with a smile on my face! Well done.”
