CM – Hitman’s wife’s bodyguard has more of that – Solzy at the Movies


Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard features solid chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, but the sequel has more of that. ‘0’]));

When it comes to action movies, bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and hit man Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) are the last two people to talk to in a team-up thinks. Yet here we are watching them try … again. It’s funny though. Bryce wanted nothing more than to just go to Italy and do a sabbatical where he didn’t have to worry about guns. He may not have a license, but he’s just happy to complete therapy. Of course, there wouldn’t be much of a movie because it isn’t drama just to watch it relax. I mean, Reynolds could make relaxation charming and fun.

This time around, Darius Kincaid’s cheater Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek) gets to see more of the action. It’s not just a cameo. Sonia is the one who pulls Bryce’s ass off the sabbatical. But just when we think they are all safe, Interpol recruits them for a job. It is really strange when this trio is all we need to protect from Aristotle Papadopoulos (Antonio Banderas). We need to talk about Morgan Freeman too. All I’m going to say about his character is. At second thought, no. You won’t get any spoilers from me. Nice to see Jackson and Freeman reunion!

Look, I have no problem with a Reynolds and Jackson movie. While the first film may have its weaknesses, their chemistry was a high point. This fact remains in the sequel. In all honesty, one wonders what a Deadpool and Nick Fury movie would look like. What the sequel manages to do is take what works from The Hitman’s Bodyguard and add a few twists to change it. Sometimes they work. At other times you already know.

The other thing about Hitman’s Wife’s bodyguard is that it really doesn’t matter what critics do. If the film goes well financially, there will almost certainly be a sequel. It’s an action comedy and even though I felt it was a little bit the same, I still had to laugh during the showing. And again, it is the chemistry between the main cast that helps the films through a predictable plot. With all that aside, Ryan Reynolds takes on the brunt of the movie’s stunts. Everywhere you look, something hits him!
