Until now, Shawn Levy's filmography “Free Guy” had been limited to successful comedies and some action comedies such as Pure Steel with loose budgets and uneven results from the entertaining Night at the Museum to the more mediocre Crazy Night or Los fellows . Escape cinema, with no pretensions other than spending some time entertaining in front of the “Free Guy” screen or in the living room.
That the story is not entirely original because from the start we notice a parallel with Spielberg's wonderful "Free Guy" with a virtual universe where a misfit becomes a hero (in this case a secondary of the game itself), united to "The Truman Show" by Peter Weir and "Origin" by Christopher Nolan although with touches of superhero films, video games and pop culture. As an example "Free Guy" we have a priceless moment when in a key scene the protagonist must choose weapons by taking out "Free Guy" shield and counterattacking.
Perhaps a greater charge of depth is requested in the dichotomy between the real and the false world, in the existence of the character himself, but "Free Guy" is not Tarkovski's "Solaris" nor does it enter into the disquisitions of "Matrix" although it also has to do with the Wachowsky movie. Levy's staging is magnificent; spectacular and precise, a great city full of robberies shootings and explosions in the vein of GTA.
A game that is mentioned at some point “Free Guy”where the cashier of a bank in the virtual world falls in love with a female player, ceasing to do what It was designed and began to collect its own intelligence. becoming the key piece to discover a plot of industrial espionage in the video game company. Something “Free Guy” that usually works well to bring together opposing worlds and give it a romantic context as we have seen in a few feature films and television series such as the magnificent.
We already say that "Free Guy" does not invent anything but everything is well told, filmed, almost two hours pass in a breath and one leaves the cinema with the feeling of having had a good time and with a smile on his face. Much of the fault is a Ryan Reynolds in a state of grace, who supports much of the plot, demonstrating how good and versatile actor he is.
"Free Guy" is a show for a good part of the public where his white humor and his love story I do not think they offend anyone (which in these times is a real merit) and that manages to ascend a few steps in the imaginary Cinematographic "Free Guy" ladder to a Shawn Levy and a 20th Century Fox that has risked with a high-budget film but that is not limited to having the visual effects as the protagonist but to include them in the plot and in a worked and interesting script. We wish the production the best of luck.

Many are the motorcycles that have participated in the “Free Guy” over the years, the brands beat themselves to get their models to appear on the big screen. From icons such as streaming home “Free Guy” Evel Knievel's eagle motorcycle, through the bikes of 007, to the motorcycle used by Scarlett Johansson in "Black Widow." Ryan Reynols' latest film has had the support of Ducati who has given several of their motorcycles, models that are already "movie motorcycles".
If you don't have a plan for this weekend, we suggest you go to the cinema to see the watch “Free Guy” at home. An action comedy focused on the world of video games in the style of Thruman's Show, loaded with gunfire and high-speed chases. To give the set action and realism, Ducati has released a large number of old and recent models. Ducati movie bikes are: a Ducati 900 SS, a Ducati Panigale V4, Ducati 959 and even a Ducati Scrambler.
This North American “Free Guy” should have seen the light of day in January 2020, but it was delayed until December, then until spring and finally until last August. A “Free Guy” to spend an afternoon with the family, and if for some reason you don't like the plot, you can always enjoy watching iconic bikes like the Ducati 900 SS.
