Free Guy | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Matthew Monagle Austin Chronicle This is no Ernest Cline novel; our emotional connection to the world and its characters goes far beyond the level of pop culture references. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 15, 2021 Full Review Free Guy | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) Free Guy is a very knowing movie, but part of its knowingness is its pop lightness -- even its blandness, if that can be seen as a virtue. Rated: 3/5 Sep 30, 2021 Full Review Free Guy | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Wenlei Ma News.com.au Free Guy is a big old mess. It's a movie that's more parts than the sum of its parts. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 21, 2021 Full Review Free Guy | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Rick Bentley KGET-TV (Bakersfield, CA) Ryan Reynolds again proves he has a real knack for being able to combine huge action scenes and fast-paced humor into one strong production. It is his work in this look inside the video game world that is the real winner. Rated: 3/4 Aug 10, 2023 Full Review Free Guy | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Zach Pope Zach Pope Reviews Everything I wanted! It’s not just charming & hilarious it’s actually A smart & poignant satire on the video game industry! Ryan’s Best non comic book role since the proposal! Plus Jodie Comer STEALS THE SHOW! This is The Truman Show for this generation! Jul 26, 2023 Full Review Free Guy | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews In addition to the impressive visuals, hilarious comedy bits, and thrilling action sequences, Shawn Levy, Matt Lieberman, and Zak Penn offer a brilliant narrative that deeply explores human nature and what the viewers perceive as "real".
