I finally got to watch this after suchhhh a long wait, and let me start off by saying, this movie aint for everyone!! For starters, u gotta know the basics of computer science, AI and sentience, like some terms just won’t ring a bell if you aint familiar! I personally found this movie ingenious, never have I seen this concept on screen before and was pleasantly surprised !!! Ryan reminded me a lot of his character in Deadpool, but the one character that I just simply could not stand was Taika Waititi. I mean he is a revolutionary director, but his cameos are super cringeworthy. I mean this was more than just a cameo😭😭 But all in all, it was a pleasant watch 🔥

Sadly the many trailers kinda spoiled the plot of the movie and there weren't too many surprises. But everybody loves a Ryan Reynolds movie and his humor and Free Guy is no exception. I enjoyed following the happy guy on his adventure and the romantic part also didn't feel too awkward and forced. I loled a few times and I absolutely enjoyed the easter eggs and references. It's a good movie but not a movie you'll watch 10 times.

I was going to watch this but I had very low expectations for it but wow did this surprise me!!! It has alot of cameos that worked really well with the story. I found myself just smiling at everything I saw from the references to the nice surprises that the movie has. This was fantastic and is something I can easily come back to.

Super fun film to watch with the whole fam. Great combination of romance, action, comedy, drama and sci-fi. Some scenes are cheesy af. Some are hilarious (esp Dude…😂). Has you thinking what would you do if you found out you were in a simulation….

It was always going to be easy watching with Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer - they are both exceptional. Laugh out loud funny, half decent plot, gratuitous violence and a smidge of romance. Very enjoyable even if it is kind of a live action version of the Lego Movie!

Combining a clever concept, sweet, self-aware humor, and a charming cast, Free Guy is frivolous fun.

Great fun! Watched with the family as soon as it landed on Disney + and boy did it not disappoint! There has been some great reviews on the humour alone and I can 💯 agree with them, the movie 🎥 is funny, charismatic and full of laughs! Ryan Reynolds performs as Ryan Reynolds (Whose not to like that anyways?) and overall the cast does a great job with this action comedy! Went into this not expecting to laugh as much as I did. Well played! Grab a big bowl of popcorn 🍿 for this one 🎞!!

Simple easy watch with a fun and creative storyline. Ryan Reynold carries the movie and does a phenomenal job (like always!). Yet, it felt like it had the potential to be a 9 or an 10 and I think they just made it too family friendly! I really liked the beginning where Guy was still fighting his ‘primal code urges’ but then it just seemed like he very easily broke out of the mold! I wish they had kept him in that stage longer and he hadn’t broken out so easily! Overall great watch 👍

I thouroughly enjoyed this movie. Dont go into this expecting an intellectual brainwringer 🧠 Instead go into this expecting a fun comedy, with the always entertaining Ryan Reynolds. If you do the latter you will have a very enjoyable comedy with just a philosophical hint to the question of what does it mean to be alive. Also, real people doing computer game character stuff like jumping weirdly up and down against a wall is just always a good time 😂

Truman Show meets Ready Player One. Sounds simple and a criticism but it works well, is very funny and an enjoyable watch. Compared to the turd of 6 Underground, this feels like a much better casting for Reynolds, and the rest of the cast are great too. Lovely weekend movie. Strong 7.

I felt both very fascinated by the concept and also this truth hit me that how there are games like GTA etc which rewards you for killing pedestrians and we are so chill about it ... But it was refreshing and I felt so good watching this

A perfect popcorn worth movie. The whole concept of the movie was refreshing and just when it started, I had the vibes of the Disney's Wreck It Ralph, but like with more breathtaking and awesomely done CGI and VFX in a live action form. From that to the storyline, and ofcourse all of the actors performances all were just absolutely stunning. And the comic timing of Ryan Reynolds is just bam ! On time, every single time. It will seriously keep you moving and entertained. But all in all, every character in this movie won't disappoint you. You'll seriously love it. Have a watch you won't regret it.

Yeah I liked this! Fun easy watch and cool concept. Scott Pilgrim vibes! Just think the ending was naff Spoiler: It made no sense the way the girl suddenly was in love with the friend. We knew he was in love with her and that all made sense and making the character loving her, sure.. but there weren't enough subtle hints between her and the friend to set up for a sudden mic drop reveal. It felt too forced. Definite naff with no set up.

Free Guy is the most heartwarming movie of the year. At first I was hesitant watching it even after reading so many good reviews I guess knowing myself that I'm not the type of guy who likes to watch comedy movies intended for children. But man I was wrong I wish I watched it sooner to join the trend topic on Twitter but now I'm 2 months late for that. But it's okay atleast I gotta end my day with a happy heart. Ryan Reynolds is so cool here he played the part so well it will made you realize that being a nice guy is sooo much better than being a bad guy even in a videogame. Free Guy is a family movie that needs to be enjoy. Actually after seeing this I have this feeling that AI is not that scary as we think it is not the way Terminator and Matrix presents it.

It was better than most video game movies we have. It has a unique idea, but the overall storyline is nothing special. It's funny, and has lots of references to other movies and games. It's a good, fun movie to watch!

I’ve been waiting to see this one for quite some time and I’m glad to finally get around to it! Ryan Reynolds has always been one of my favorite actors and his role in this film is no exception. On the other hand, Taika Waititi feels incredibly out of place in his role. My favorite part was definitely the surprise cameo from Chris Evans himself which goes to show how memorable him and his portrayal of Captain America are!

I love Ryan Reynolds and Taika and the movie was well made although by my opinion it is a bit too much of a pg-family-comedy.

Really enjoyed this! Massive true man show vibes but different enough to make it new and enjoyable. The main actress is also in one of my favourite BBC series “Doctor Foster” which is a 10.

CGI is great. Taika's character and humor hugely disappointing. Ryan Reynolds does Ryan Reynolds, he can make looking at a toenail feel good and funny. Jodie Comer annoyed me throughout the entire film. All in all I'd describe it as : CUTE

I finally got a chance to see it, and I have to say I was surprised in a very positive way. Going in I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was awesome. Ryan Reynolds plays himself. His quick wit and sharp tongue are definitely front and center. However, I truly believe Dude steals the show. "catchphrase!" It has a compelling plot, although a bit predictable, and some great cameos that will have you laughing. I had to do a couple of double-takes because I wasn't sure if it was the actual actor. There is also a secrete cameo, this one was a bit tougher to detect, jajajajaja.

Funny, entertaining movie. Reynolds is his usual charismatic self, it's not a full on laugh fest but it is humourous throughout. Great concept which keeps you engrossed. Comer was also excellent and played well off Reynolds. Great summer entertainment.

This was a pleasant surprise, Free Guy is probably my favorite comedy of the year. The cast shines, laugh-out-loud moments, surprising cameos, and and interesting commentary on the gaming culture itself. I dug this flick a lot. Highly recommended for sure.

Well done! Fun movie throughout with an entertaining take on modern times. Did a pretty good job staying apolitical, as much as a Hollywood movie could be expected to be, what little there was didn't detract from the film. Depending on how you feel about some of the language, it could be considered a family film.
