What’s it about?
Guy is a regular guy who loves his life, loves his job, and loves spending time with his best friend Buddy. His idyllic routine is thrown into disarray when he finally meets the girl of dreams, only to discover he’s a background character in a video game that is about to be pulled offline.

Stephen Scott says: It’s the sign of good movie that when the plot holes cascade to form a supermassive plot hole you just don’t care, as you’re having too much fun to take it seriously.
Take the naivety of Benny in the LEGO Movie, add the A.I. revelations of Westworld, drench it with the “it’s a Ryan Reynolds movie, so it’ll have his silly sense of self-aware humour” factor, and place it in a mirror-universe where this is the worthy sequel to Tron, and you have the hugely enjoyable Free Guy.
Go see it in a cinema ASAP before you hear the spoilers. Catchphrase. 8.3/10
