The plot is about a video game NPCs named Guy (Ryan Reynolds), who works in a bank with is friend Buddy (Lil Re Howery). Guy lives in Free City which is a fictional video game world that NPCs live their lives. In Free Guy, Sunglasses people are players in Free City and interact with NPCs.

This caught the attention of Spoonami developed Antwan (Takia Walititl), While in the real world Keys (Joe Kerry) and his co-worker Mouser creates avatar to see whats up. After chasing Guy and see if he is a real player or not. Guy finds Molotovgirl to steal data from Antwan. Keys and Millie were original developers of Free City during a interview. Antwan stole their codes and make it his own hence trying to stop him. Millie (Jodie Corner) spends time with Guy in Free City. Keys founds out that Guy was no longer NPC but it’s own AI comes to life. Later on MolotovGirl tells him that he is not real just an NPC. Buddy talks to Guy about what is real or not. Antwan is upset about Guy who is losing money due to this.
He wants all the NPCs deleted and launch Free City 2 Carnage. There is a flaw in the program that Antwan left. Guy rallies all the NPCs and tell them, they’re better than just background characters but more. Keys tells Millie that Guy was inspired by her due to her loving Mariah Carey music. One of Guy’s programming is that he is trying to find true love. Antwan orders his employees to reboot the program and turn Guy back into a NPC. Millie comes into the game and kisses Guy altering the code. Keys help Guy and Millie to find the island. Antwan smashes up the servers causing NPCs to be deleted. He also sents DUDE (Ryan Reynolds) to stop Guy from reaching the island.
Guy puts on the glasses and fights off DUDE. Antwan continues to axe the servers causing the game to go offline. Guy reaches the island and the game is restored. Keyes and Millie rekindle their relationship. Antwan is arrested and a new game called “Free Life” where NPCs can live freely. That’s how the movie ends with Buddy and Guy walking away. Free Guy is a fun video game movie in my opinion. This movie tackle that don’t underestimate video game NPCs because they have a life as well. You see NPCS in game like Genshin Impact and Final Fantasy or other MMORPGs. NPCs is not just background characters but program into the game to stand out from players.
In Free Guy, there is alot of Easter Eggs, references and cameos in this movie. The most notable one is YouTube and Twitch, we have Ninja, Pokimane, Jackseyticeye, DanTDM and LazerBeam. Don’t forgot new companies like Good Morning America Lara Spencer and IGN. What about Jeopardy tv show? I didn’t expect that and Chris Evans showed up in this movie due Captain American shield. There is references of Fortnite, Portal 2, Mega Man and Grand Theft Auto video games in this movies. If you are a Mariah Carey fan, that sweet fantasy song is played throughout the movie. There is some product placement like Razer and HyperX in this movie. As a gamer, I really enjoy this film with light hearted humor and slapstick.
This movie reminds of Groundhog Day, Ready Player One and Wreck it Ralph for some reason. I would highly recommend watching Free Guy for y’all streamers and gamers out there.
