The Hitman's Bodyguard / Reviews

Flicks, Daniel Rutledge

Flicks, Daniel Rutledge

Two renegade, maverick, lovable rogue types must overcome the urge to kill each other in order to kill a bunch of dudes, all in order to stop some other people being killed and ensure a bad guy is brought to justice for killing heaps of people. Oh and they've both got to win back their better halves in the process, too.

The whole film feels slightly grubby and low-res, like it's been languishing in private mode on the filmmakers' pre-HD YouTube page since 2008.

A delightfully ridiculous screwball action comedy.

'The Hitman's Bodyguard' is not exactly killing it, but coasts on the charisma of its central stars.

Shamelessly apes [Shane] Black's style and rhythms, while lifting a fair whack of Midnight Run's storyline.

Reynolds and Jackson make this summer lunacy go down easy with their banter and bullet-dodging skills. They're the only reason this R-rated action comedy doesn't sink into the generic quicksand from whence it came.

The picture feels far more generic than its A-list cast would suggest.

...we’re never more than a few minutes away from a quip or a kill.
