The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017)

Written by Gimly on August 28, 2017

The Hitman's Bodyguard is getting absolutely flensed by the critics, including several of whom I personally value the opinion of very highly. But when it comes to The Hitman's Bodyguard, I gotta flat out disagree. It's not out here changing lives for the better, and it's hardly gonna ride out the year on a palanquin of Oscar nominations, but I had a seriously enjoyable time with The Hitman's Bodyguard. Jackson and Reynolds worked. The leads and their respective romantic entanglements worked. Most of all, director Patrick Hughes worked his ass of to blend comedy, action and romance and have it pay off. This isn't Hughes' best work though, if you want to see that, check out 2010's Red Hill.

Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go.
