Free Guy

Free Guy ★★★

On paper, I hate this movie. Ryan Reynolds. Video game plot. Almost irrelevant celebrity cameos. 4th wall breaks. A basic plot formula.

But, for whatever reason, it worked for me. It wasn’t genius or anything, but it was entertaining. Not all of the jokes landed, but I laughed. The plot wasn’t that special, but I was engaged. 

Watching Free Guy almost felt like the experience I get out of online open world games such as GTA or “Free City.”
