The Hitman’s Bodyguard (2017)
Genre: Action, Comedy
From the minute I first saw this trailer I was very excited to see this movie 😀 . Ryan Reynolds (Michael Bryce) and Samuel L Jackson (Darius Kincaid) did not disappoint and created a good partnership together. Their humour and lines in the dialogue were quite amusing and some parts hilarious 😀 . Other moments within the film tried to keep the level of comedy and action equal and it mostly does. The actual narrative was quite entertaining with a decent plot (try to defeat the bad guy and don’t let the witness die 😛 )plus the graphics are good. My favourite scene had to be the beginning as it was a great set up to understanding the character of Michael Bryce and the scene was a shocker 😛 . I also thought Gary Oldman’s character Vladislav Dukhovich was a very impressive villain and the action scenes were great 😀 . I liked the scene in the court near the end (can’t say what scene as I don’t want to spoil but I can hint it is the one with the van 😛 ) onwards was more intriguing. The defeat of the bad guy was very fitting and I liked the development of the characters as they “had” to get along 🙂 . However, as much as I was not bored at all, I can’t say I truly enjoyed this either. It storyline was very predictable which affected the action side of the storyline and the comedy suffered too. The jokes only had me slightly chuckling at times but no laughter. The majority of jokes weren’t funny and the only ones that got me chuckling were due to Reynolds and Jackson’s characters only. Plus the love interests and how they got together were not needed. However, this is still a very entertaining movie and I am glad to have watched it once, I just wished it had been funnier. Enjoy 😀
I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
