Synopsis

Miles is a socially awkward, easily intimidated loner who spends his days in a deadend job, pining for his beautiful ex-girlfriend Nova. His mundane existence is turned upside down when he finds himself enrolled on a dark net website that forces complete strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death, so that their gladiatorial battles can be live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical, blood-lusting audience.

The contestants are chosen by a clandestine snuff film gang known as Schism, who handicap the weaker contestants to make the contest even more compelling. In Miles’s case, twin handguns are bolted onto his hands, which although great for killing, is less helpful for more day-to-day tasks. Miles is pitted against Nix, a seemingly unstoppable killing machine. Armed to the teeth, she carves a path of destruction through the city in pursuit of the cowardly Miles.

Miles’s lifetime of running from his problems initially pays off when he manages to elude Nix rather than fight. But when Nova is kidnapped, he must stop running and overcome his fear to fight for the girl he loves.

An inspired, contemporary take on the iconic action movies of the 80’s and 90’s, GUNS AKIMBO is an adrenaline soaked balls-to-the-wall action comedy in the tradition of Kick-Ass, The Terminator and Deadpool.
