Plot summary

What is Guns Akimbo movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Guns Akimbo" movie plot summary.

In an alternative near future, an underground fight club and a criminal organization known as Skizm has achieved massive popularity by live-streaming real death matches between criminals and psychos. Ordinary computer programmer Miles Lee Harris (Daniel Radcliffe), who gets his kicks by trolling online trolls, logs into Skizm's forum to insult viewers who turn murder into entertainment. Riktor (Ned Dennehy), the criminal kingpin and psychopath who runs Skizm, breaks into Miles' apartment with his henchmen Dane (Mark Rowley), Effie (Racheal Ofori), and Fuckface (Set Sjöstrand). After being beaten and drugged, Miles wakes up to find guns bloodily bolted into both of his hands. Miles learns that he has been forced to participate in Skizm by being pitted against Nix (Samara Weaving), the game's deadliest and craziest killer; she wants out but Riktor requires she kill one last opponent, Miles.
Nix tracks Miles' phone, he tries to reason with Nix but she intends to kill him. Miles distracts her and she shoots up his apartment as he falls down the fire escape. After unsuccessfully attempting to recruit help from the police, Miles makes it to the park to meet his artist ex-girlfriend Nova Alexander (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), who tells Miles she doesn't want to get back together. When Miles reveals what is happening to him, Nova flees in fright. Nova reports the situation to Detective Degraves (Grant Bowler). Degraves has his partner Stanton (Edwin Wright) hack Nova's phone so they can track Miles. Miles gets temporary help from a vagrant named Glenjamin (Rhys Darby). Miles then goes to the office where he works so his friend Hadley (Milo Cawthorne) can hack the Skizm tracking malware on his phone.
