Movie Review: The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard


Within the first 45 minutes of the bad sequel of the bad original “The Hitman’s Bodyguard”, Ryan Reynolds is covered with another man’s blood and brains as the man is shot in the head. For the remainder of this movie, Reynolds never cleans the blood off his face. Is this supposed to be funny or entertaining to anyone? Why was a bad movie from 2017 considered to be good enough to have a sequel? The formula here is, Ryan Reynolds+Selman Hyack+Samuel L. Jackson = will make enough people go and see this film, even though this is a bad script. This formula worked 4 years ago, of course this will work again. At least this is the thinking of the producers. If this movie makes money this time around, then there will be a 3rd movie, unfortunately. Money over quality, money over paying the price to wait for a great script, that most often takes to long to create.

The is not much to report on as far as the story of this movie, other than the other two stars that promised to appear in this film are Antonio Banderas and Morgan Freeman. Aside from that just about all the attempts at humor also fail, as does the action scenes.

I agree with the very low 25% ratings on Rotten Tomatoes and agree that this one should be missed.
