In games like GTA Online and Red Dead Online, you can find numerous unnamed NPCs who are just going about their business while players kill them, steal from them and blow up their cars and homes. Free Guy, a new film coming out next year, asks the question: what would happen if one of those NPCs fought back?
I like Ryan Reynolds a lot, but this does not look like a good film. Maybe I’m too harsh, but the jokes feel old and the whole thing looks like one of those 'GTA In Real Life' videos that have been around for years, but with a bigger budget.
Who knows? Maybe the whole film, which comes out on July 3rd, 2020, will be better.
