“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” (2017)

This is a movie that plays out almost exactly like your typical generic 80s or 90s action film, complete with gaping plot holes, in which Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds are essentially playing slightly exaggerated versions of their acting personas. Honestly, that’s really all you need to know about this film to know if it’s for you or not. Me personally, I had a blast with this film. And even though I acknowledge this isn’t great cinema, like at all, this is an incredibly entertaining film, and is perfect brainless popcorn action fodder. It’s funny, the action’s good, and Jackson and Reynolds have great chemistry. Honestly, it pretty much has everything I want in a throwaway action film, and that makes it pretty great.
