The much-anticipated sci-fi film “Free Guy” starring Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer hits theaters this Friday, and there’s loads of motion in it proper up till the very finish to maintain viewers entertained.
Reynolds performs Guy, a timid banker who works in Free City — a metropolis which is definitely a part of a online game of the identical identify created by gaming government Antoine (Taika Waititi) and builders Keys (Joe Keery) and Millie (Comer).
As Guy comes to search out out, he’s an NPC (non-player character) within the sport “Free City,” information which adjustments each his world and sense of self fully. Guy meets participant Millie, who encourages him to assist her break right into a secret degree of the sport that would set him and all the opposite A.I. characters within the sport free and loads of hijinks ensue.
“Free Guy” is a Disney manufacturing, so there’s ample references to different Disney properties and even a number of Marvel Cinematic Universe tie-ins. Guy at one level throughout a boss struggle summons a Hulk fist and a blue Luke Skywalker lightsaber, which prompts at the least 30 seconds of the “Star Wars” theme to play only for the heck of it.
Post-credit scenes are normally a staple in lots of a nerd-flavored flick because of Marvel utilizing them always over the previous decade, and, properly, “Free Guy” actually goes for just about the identical viewers right here — a post-credits scene could be a pure
Sadly, although, we don’t get one in “Free Guy.” That mentioned, the tip of the film might be establishing a sequel.
The remainder of this put up will focus on the ending of “Free Guy.” Meaning: it’s spoiler time.
After Guy helps Millie discover the key degree in “Free City,” Millie and Keys use their sport design expertise to show that degree (which we be taught was really a prototype of a sport they have been each engaged on earlier than it obtained lumped into “Free City”) into its personal sport. They add Guy and his friends into the brand new online game which is a utopia the place people simply observe NPCs going about their enterprise with out having the ability to management them.
That’s not essentially the most thrilling premise for a online game, however it’s a healthful concept. After touchdown on this new pixelated paradise, Guy runs again into an previous pal who asks him what he’s going to do together with his newfound freedom. Guy replies, “whatever I want!”
Disney likes to spin films into franchises and it’s attainable this ending is a sequel setup. That mentioned, Disney hasn’t confirmed the existence of any plans for a “Free Guy” follow-up.
The sequel may comply with Guy’s ongoing exploits within the new sport, or present how the opposite NPCs develop with him — in any case, Keys at one level is delighted to be taught that Guy is simply the primary of the A.I. he constructed within the sport to begin making his personal selections and says Guy’s habits is inspiring the others to additionally grow to be autonomous.
A possible sequel may additionally proceed Guy’s bid for freedom. Guy’s complete mission within the film was getting out of the online game, however “Free Guy” ends by doing the precise reverse by simply porting him into one other sport. It’s not clear if Guy may even exist outdoors a online game, however perhaps there’s a sequel within the works the place Guy does escape into the actual world.
Or, maybe one thing threatens the utopia Keys and Millie created and Guy and his friends must stand up from the within to struggle for the sport world’s survival. This is simply hypothesis, however since “Free Guy” ended with the villain Antoine (Waititi) taking an axe to his server room and being publicly humiliated however not jailed or something, it’s truthful to imagine he’s nonetheless on the market and perhaps searching for revenge.
And, after all, because it’s Disney, they may all the time do a crossover with “Tron.”
