Ludicrously fun violence, profusion of cheapy deathes, pieces of broken and crashed cars, vehement shouts like "motherfu**er motherfu**er MOTHERFU**ER!!!" etc. They tell me that in this desolate, full of WTF Tramp era, what we need is ginormously ass-exploding soul like Renny Harlin has had once in that unbelievably optimistic 1990's. Blitheringly dumb, sometimes so clumsy, yet truly fun ride. And Kurosawa RIP!!!!!!
Entertaining but empty summer entertainment with its two leads playing characters that they've both played variations on before. Worth catching for the brief appearances by Salma Hayek who scores here.
1/10. THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD is a paint-by-numbers action comedy. Nothing here is surprising. I would have preferred the movie to try to be action packed and funny, but instead it bogs itself down with an unnecessary romantic subplot and a life outlook debate between Ryan Reynolds and Sam Jackson that feels shallow and rehashed the FIRST time it's brought up -- nevermind the other five.
Nothing new, nothing clever, and only frequently funny, this is a fairly basic summer flick that is forgettable as a comedy and functions better as an action film. We get Gary Oldman as a typical villain and Samuel L. Jackson giving all the "motherfuckers" he has, but it works for the most part. I can't imagine I'll ever want to watch this again though.
