The world’s top protection agent is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hit men. The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their journey from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades and a merciless Eastern European dictator who is out for blood. – Lionsgate

The Hitman’s Bodyguard sounds like a 80’s buddy cop action movie and honestly it’s just like any of those films from the 80’s. It’s really nothing special or new but I frigging loved it. The Hitman’s Bodyguard was an absolute blast. Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds basically just play exaggerated versions of themselves and that’s what makes it so great. The Hitman’s Bodyguard is 2 hours of decent action and Sam Jackson calling people motherf*cker and why wouldn’t you want to watch that?
