The Hitman's Bodyguard

Already establishing himself for previous films such as Red Hill (2010) and The Expendables 3 (2014), Patrick Hughes has recently released his 3rd and perhaps most successful motion picture, “The Hitman’s Bodyguard," in what many considered was the worst summer movie season in over 10 years.

Making its debut August 18, “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds is a two-hour, action-packed comedy.

Samuel L. Jackson’s bad-mouthing remarks kept the audience laughing throughout the movie. 

The film follows Michael Bryce (played by Ryan Reynolds), a former triple-A executive protection agent whose career takes turn for the worse after unsuccessfully escorting a Japanese client. Willing to do anything to prove his worth, Bryce accepts an offer which he is tasked with delivering international hitman Darius Kinkaid (Jackson) from Manchester to the Hague to testify against sadistic Russian dictator Seifert (Richard E. Grant).

Samuel L. Jackson is a hysterical genius as he wittingly mocks Reynolds. Reynolds plays the role of a know-it-all hotshot.

I give the movie a solid B+. I appreciated the well-written script as well as the punchlines. I recommend it to anyone that enjoys exciting sequences of bad-mouthing and bullet-dodging.
