We want you to vote for the best Guns Akimbo quotes. The movie is like a video game crossed with a fever dream. It's excessively violent and not even remotely realistic, yet also filled with some funny lines that indicate the film doesn't take itself too seriously. Those laughs are mixed in with hard-edged one liners, because this is, after all, a life-or-death adventure story.

Daniel Radcliffe plays Miles, a mild-mannered office worker who spends his nights letting out aggression by trolling people on the internet. One day, against his will, he's forced to take part in an online experience called Skizm. Guns are literally bolted to his hands and he's assigned to terminate another player, Nix (Samara Weaving). She is supposed to terminate him, as well. As this takes place, hundreds of thousands of online spectators watch. The problem is that Miles really isn't the slaying type, but Nix is. This darkly comic plot allows for almost non-stop high octane action sequences and more bloody antics than you could imagine. 

Guns Akimbo was written and directed by Jason Lei Howden, whose previous film was the heavy metal horror flick Deathgasm. The supporting cast includes Ned Dennehy as Skizm's mastermind and Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Miles' girlfriend Nova, who gets wrapped up in all the craziness.

Vote up the most memorable Guns Akimbo quotes from the list below, whether humorous or no-nonsense.

    Miles: Fun factoid: gunshots are way louder than in the movies. In real life, Rambo would not be killing guerilla fighters, he would be learning sign language.

    The Face Shooting

    Miles: I think my ribs are broken, and I definitely have internal bleeding. 

    Nix: Cool. Do you want to sit here and cry about it, like a little b*tch, or do you want to go shoot a bunch of people in the face?

    Miles: Oh, hell, yes. The face shooting, not the crying.

    Civilization As We Know It

    Miles: It can be a f*cked up world out there, right? Skizm -- well, that was f*cked up to the point where it was threatening civilization as we know it.
