Hitman’s Bodyguard – Movie Poster

Starting off in Manchester, England, Michael Bryce protects an international arms dealer on the way to his private jet. In The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Ryan Reynolds portrays this character and seems delighted to be on a successful mission of watching over a celebrity. As the dealer waves goodbye to Bryce from his seat, he’s shot dead by a sniper and that’s the end of Reynold’s respected agency career and relationship, or so he thought. Two years later, Samuel L. Jackson acts as Darius Kincaid and is the witness in a trial involving an Eastern European leader, Gary Oldman. To get from jail to the trial held in Belarus, he needs protection; the two meet and travel from a safe house to Belarus with several rocky stops along the way.

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel Jackson in characters

The best part about The Hitman’s Bodyguard was the combination of action and comedy. Bigger sections of the movie incorporate stunts with comedic relief breaks that involve a lot of cursing. If taking your family to see this movie, although there are no nude or sexual scenes, there are a few violent deaths and the use of strong language. The writer’s favorite word rhymes with mother trucker. I watched Reynolds and Jackson bicker back and forth as my best friend and I would do. Seeing the contrast of the two start to compare overtime was relatable. Jackson’s outgoing character and Reynold’s more collected personality clash yet fit together well. It wasn’t deep or meaningful, but it’s a movie for laughter and passing the time.

I’d recommend seeing this movie on a rainy day with some friends. Catch The Hitman’s Bodyguard in theaters while there’s nothing else to do. I’d pick this film over a lot of the thrown-together, cliché action movies that come to the big screen. Samuel L. Jackson’s comedic acting and Reynold’s awkwardness make for a good duo in The Hitman’s Bodyguard.
