6 Films to watch if you liked Free Guy

The Ryan Reynolds starring “Free Guy” has been stalled numerous times due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Now that the situation is a little better 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studio due to its acquisition by Disney) has finally unleashed it in theatres. Since the real world is now in close contact with Blue Shirt Guy (the infamous character played by Reynolds in the film), a Non-player character in a video game who discovers his world isn’t what he supposed it was, it’s only right to talk about its many influences and possible double bill features that serve as great post-viewing experience.

Free Guy is a film that draws on a pretty original (and somehow derivative) idea. The fact that video games have now become such an integral part of the lives of millennials and the Gen-Z in particular, it was only about time that someone took it upon himself to replicate the immersive nature of these games, with a clever comment on the whole idea of creation and self-sabotage that it brings along for the ride. Mostly, it’s just a damn fun time at the movies. A film that will keep you happy with its frolic world-building and charming character moments. Thanks to a brilliant cast that includes Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Taika Waititi, and a hilarious cameo by Channing Tatum. If you, like me, really enjoyed Free Guy here are some other movies from The Truman Show to Ralph Breaks the Internet that you might enjoy.
