Hitman's Bodyguard

The Hitman’s Bodyguard follows Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds), a once AAA rated executive protection agent, who is now down on his luck, due to an issue on a job gone horribly wrong. He is asked by his former girlfriend, Amelia Roussel (Elodie Yung) to help her protect a deadly hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) who is needed to testify in an international criminal case. Kincaid’s testimony is needed to help put a dangerous politician Vladislav Dukhobivh (Gary Oldman) in jail for his horrible crimes. From then on, the movie follows Michael and Kincaid on a hilarious yet dangerous journey to make it to court not only on time but most importantly alive.

Ryan Reynolds delivers as the annoying yet funny bodyguard who doesn’t really want to protect his new client. Samuel L.

When I saw the first trailer for this film, I knew their chemistry would be great, and these two did not disappoint in the movie.

This film also had a great soundtrack which only added to how great this movie was.
