If you don't mind sticking to its stupidities, its wild slapstick spirit and the effectiveness of its action scenes, you will discover one of the funniest movies of the year. [Full Review in Spanish]

The team of secondary actors that also shines, the multiple laughter that it causes, and Hughes' efforts to feed the film with a light message that turns it into something else than a simple empty show. [Full Review in Spanish]

Reynold's and Jackson were great choices and I certainly hope Lionsgate will be able to tap them to return for the sequel.

The Hitman's Bodyguard features at least one tiresome car chase too many, and the final half-hour feels as if it's going to stretch into next week. But even these debits can't completely diminish the bullseye turns by the winsome protagonists.

The Hitman's Bodyguard has a great cast that look like they're having fun but not enough jokes to carry it through to the end.

I think you're gonna have fun and then forget it the second you walk out of the theater.

On the whole, while it isn't exactly an example of great filmmaking, The Hitman's Bodyguard does take you on a fun, two-hour long ride. Just don't expect it to bring anything new to the genre or surprise you in any way.

There's an okay supply of jokes and impressive stunts, but this is nowhere near as funny as it should be. Oddly paced, and poorly made, this film is more than lucky to have Samuel L. Jackson as its star.

The Hitman's Bodyguard stars Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson doing what they do best: fighting, cursing, and making us laugh. A lot.

The Hitman's Bodyguard is the sort of movie you see a lot in mid-August, a film intended for bigger things, but whose execution wound up falling short.
February 8, 2019
With laughs, f-bombs galore, a plethora of good action sequences and some nice surprises along the way, The Hitman's Bodyguard is a fun watch.

The Hitman's Bodyguard represents yet another paint-by-numbers, rushed product that seeks to trick viewers with flashy trailers in hopes of quick cash.

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are a match made in comedic heaven.

The draw - other than the grandstanding of flashy explosions, animated gunplay and calculating car chases - is obviously the rollicking rapport between hedonistic hotshot leads Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds as the titular characters.

Silly but harmless buddy action movie that wishes it was as witty as a Shane Black script.

It's briefly amusing, in an absurd sense, to see standard American action-movie pyrotechnics playing out on the streets of Holland, but the film doesn't seem aware enough that this is it's best gag.

This isn't a particularly original work of cinema but the duo front and center carry the tradition of the buddy action flick across the finish line with a number of laughs and thrilling action scenes along the way.

Every scene of this movie oozes with male fantasy wish fulfillment.
October 10, 2018
The Hitman's Bodyguard might not be smart, but it's definitely a fun time at the movies.
August 30, 2018
A missed opportunity for its an overly familiar and cliched action flick that adds nothing new to the genre except another mediocre entry.
