The Hitman’s Bodyguard



I enjoyed the Hitman’s Bodyguard. It was a light, bloody popcorn flick for the end of summer.

There are no real surprises here. Samuel L Jackson play Samuel L Jackson. Ryan Reynolds plays Ryan Reynolds.

It was an enjoyable odd couple road movie. With gun play and mayhem.

Starring: Samuel L Jackson, Ryan Reynolds, Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung, Gary Oldman

First things first – this movie is presented entirely in first person. The movie starts out with Henry waking up in a Bacta-like tank. He sees a beautiful doctor (Haley Bennett as Estelle) attaching cybernetic limbs. She informs him that she is his wife and that memory loss is a temporary side effect from the life saving procedures he has undergone. The base they are in gets raided by Akan (Danila Kozlovsky), a telekinetic meglomaniac, before his voice module gets installed. During Henry and Estelle’s escape, she gets captured by Akan and we are introduced to Jimmy (Sharlto Copley). The best friend the amnesiac Henry could hope for. Jimmy works with Henry for him to attempt to get a better battery for his systems, his wife back, revenge on Akan.

TL;DR – Fun action romp. Turn your brain off and enjoy the ride
