The Hitman's Bodyguard

Action & Adventure • R • Directed by: Patrick Hughes • 118 minutes

The world’s top protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hit men (Samuel L. Jackson). The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years, and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous and hilarious adventure from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades, and a merciless Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldman) who is out for blood. Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson’s equally notorious wife.

Very entertaining movie....held my attention from beginning to end...glad I trusted the customer reviews and not the stuffy movie critics. — everybodysacritictoo

Worth the watch and then some.
★★★★★
The movie was full the quirky humor from both Ryan Reynolds and Samuel Jackson. Loaded with action definitely worth the time to watch it. — Savach1

Best movie I have seen in years.
★★★★★
And I could really use the laughs it gifted me with. Lots of killer action and laughter - truly well done. Disregard critics, nowadays I mostly pick exactly what's been turned down by them and I rarely make mistakes this way. Enjoy! — Fil Dallas

The Hitman’s Bodyguard
★★★★★
Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) is sent to protect a hitman named Nick Fury (Sam.L. Jackson) and have an hilarious adventure of shooting, fighting, explosions, singing, valuable life lessons, love story’s, and much more!! — Amarchena

Fun but prepare for typical S. L Jackson
★★★★★
Fun comic book style action but in my opinion way too much use of the F bomb. This gets boring fir me but is typical S. L. Jackson fare. He over uses that word worse than a handyman from craigslist. Other than that it has a very nice jaguar product placement. — tactileman

Formulaic drivel!
★★★★★
One star for each actor and that's it. — Loribird52

Fun movie!
★★★★★
We enjoyed this movie tremendously, typical popcorn movie. I would give it 4 1/2 stars only though because of the lack of chemistry between Reynolds and Jackson. They both play their roles very well but kind of don't "connect" to well. — 991tts

Fun ride!

I preordered the movies and I can’t download it. It’s not in my downloads or purchases section, and now the option says -buy 19.99- Is there a way I can fix this? — Veli Ambrocio

Not the best movie I waiting more
★★★★★

Boring!
★★★★★
Boring and not very funny. Weak unoriginal storyline. Actors could not save the movie. Good location shots. Recommendation: Don't buy--just rent. — Berkeley Rooster

Boring.
★★★★
All of the points of hilarity were in the trailer. If you want to laugh, just watch the trailer. The movie is lacking. These two are great actors but this movie was just not good. — Ashmarissa

Great Fun
★★★★
Ryan, Samuel and Salma do their usual great work. Gary Oldman is always a good villain. I thought they overdid the foul language a bit, and the movie is a bit predictable. But these flaws did little to hurt the sheer fun of watching Ryan and Samuel do what they do best. I laughed all the way through it. Highly recommended. — Ugotta_B_Kidding

Intriguingly enjoyable!
★★★★★
The story is simple yet satisfying, combined with great action scenes and humorous moments to fill the void. As usual Ryan and Samuel deliver brilliant performances. It’s a roller coaster of excitement from start to finish and a worthy viewing experience. — VioletPirana

On the fence
★★★★★
Like the movie 🎥 wasn't overly impressed I guess I'm sick of hitman vengeance flicks. But if your still interested, it's mindless drivel 👀 — Gamer holdem

Hilarious

It was alright
★★★★★
Not the best movie I have seen. It also wasn’t as funny as I thought it was going to be (the trailer was funnier). But still not bad (not a waste of time). — jsl2749

★★★★★
This is movie was so good with good action and a good plot to the movie ! — Ryan amazing

It had its moments.
★★★★★
If you're a fan of actors Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson this movie is probably worth a look. The movie had its moments but I feel it missed the mark as a whole. It just seemed like a mix mash of a lot of different things. I see well crafted R rated movies all the time but I feel this movie was much more profane than it needed to be. I don't mind profanity, nudity(none in this movie) or violence if it's used in a thoughtful, creative and natural way. From my perspective the gratuitous overuse of F bombs and profanity in this movie was really unnecessary and not funny. I think the movie would have been much better as a whole if it had been crafted as a PG-13 film. — echols108

Solid movie
★★★★★
Must one time watch — sad as hell

It was ok...
★★★★★
I enjoyed it for the most part- but I think it could have been wrapped up a little quicker. It felt like it dragged on a little too much for me. Still a fun popcorn movie! — dhjddbjddkssbbs

Deadpool & Ride Along combined!
★★★★★
This movie was so funny, I almost peed my pants. I've seen lot's of action/comedy movies, and this has got to go on that list of favorites. The Hitman's Bodyguard reminded me why I found Ryan Reynolds charming and funny, and why Samuel Jackson is so...Awesome! Give this movie an Oscar, no one will regret it, or forget it. ☺️😉 — South Stark 747

I really enjoyed this movie, it was funny, entertaining and action packed and the cast were on point with their characters. Only thing is that it's a little predictable, but overall, it's an enjoyable film👍🏾👍🏾 — Lexiiandria
