IN A NUTSHELL: The bodyguard Michael Bryce continues his friendship with assassin Darius Kincaid as they try to save Darius’ wife Sonia. The goofy action flick is directed by Patrick Hughes and is the sequel to The Hitman’s Bodyguard.
The trailer for the film tells you exactly what to expect: tons of bloody action, gorgeous locations, a stacked cast, snarky humor, and a bloated plot. You WILL laugh and be entertained, despite a few of the film’s flaws.
“FUNNY BUT EXHAUSTING AND VULGAR“
THINGS I LIKED: Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, and Salma Hayek made such an entertaining, killer trio. Some critics are saying they phoned it in, but I disagree. They all look great, especially Salma Hayek even though there are jokes about her age. She’s actually 54 years old, but she looks absolutely fantastic. They are the magic that makes this movie so fun.
The cast also includes the wonderful Morgan Freeman, Antonio Banderas, Academy Award winner Gary Oldman, Tom Hopper, and Frank Grillo among others.
You get to travel to a lot of beautiful destinations including England and Italy. They actually filmed some of the movie in beautiful Croatia.
Some really crazy stunts. Most of them are incredible, while a few are so over-the-top and exaggerated that they are funny in a good way.
I always love twists. Tons of humor. Tons of action sequences.
THINGS I DIDN’T LIKE: It definitely helps to have seen the first movie to understand the dynamics of the characters and this hitman life.
I adore Salma Hayek, but sometimes I couldn’t understand what she was saying. As much as I get a kick out of Ryan Reynolds, he kind of plays the same character in every movie.
Some of the CGI fire and explosions looked fake. The title of the movie doesn’t exactly roll off your tongue. There are a lot of flashbacks that provide jokes but often drag down the pacing.
The plot is completely unimportant and no one will care about it or even remember it 5 minutes after watching the movie.
There could have been some heartwarming and emotional moments, but the film squashes them with humor instead.
TIPS FOR PARENTS: This movie is NOT appropriate for kids.
Tons of bloody violence Tons of profanity, including sooooo many F-bombs, crude and vulgar language Conversations and portrayal of “doing it” Lots of destruction You see dead, bloodied bodies Lots of cleavage There is a complete disregard for human life
Overall, the movie is loud and mindnumbing
