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.

This film is highly entertaining and masterfully written. Reynolds and Jackson are keen when it comes to foul-mouthed mercenary roles.
August 21, 2018
There is plenty of chuckle-worthy humor and also a good amount of laugh-out-loud comedy, with Jackson and Reynolds playing off of each other really, really well.

There are thrills, there's suspense, there's even a wee bit of tenderness, and if the fight scenes don't match the stylish choreography of Atomic Blonde, director Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3, Red Hill) can be forgiven.

Playing to its strengths, whether that means an effective use of cliché, or a showcase of Samuel L. Jackson being Samuel L. Jackson, The Hitman's Bodyguard makes the standard action-comedy effortlessly fun.

Don't go expecting another Deadpool from Ryan Reynolds and this tired, lacklustre action comedy.
May 2, 2018
The movie crafts some truly interesting action scenes that reward the attentive viewer, even if the rest of the movie lacks that level of intelligence.

The action in the film is decent and entertaining enough but can't make up for the unfunny jokes, lack of chemistry, bad special effects, and the incessantly annoying use of the words "mother f****er."

It may not be art --it's not even close--, but it's definitely light, violent, hilarious, vulgar and well-made entertainment. [Full review in Spanish]

It has comedic moments to it, but it doesn't really commit to that angle...there are also a lot of scenes in this movie where the light is bleeding over and washing out.

Bodyguard is annoying nearly from start to finish, completely defying all sense of internal logic as their enemies manage to find them in every corner of Europe within five seconds of their arrival.

As a time killer, you could do worse thanks to Reynolds and Jackson and even Hayek, who made me laugh and has a natural affinity for comedy.

Nothing says summer like a fun and stupid action movie with beautiful people and even more beautiful explosions. Patrick Hughes' comedic actioner is not that movie, though it wants to be.

Probably the most interesting thing to ponder regarding the film is if it was actually written with these two actors in mind, or if they just used their natural charisma and comedic timing to save a disaster

The film aims pretty low and hits there.

Bloody, brutal and bombastic, this Midnight Run-inspired film is assuredly this Summer's antidote to boring.
November 3, 2017
The Hitman's Bodyguard feels like a greatest hits compilation of proven Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson zingers, the AM Gold of action comedies.
November 1, 2017
This black comedy... is not afraid of anything. [Full review in Spanish]

Reynolds is all smarm, his character seemingly trying to be the smartest man in the room while Jackson finds new and entertaining ways to use the words "mother" and, well, you know.
October 26, 2017
The film would have fallen flat if not for the efforts of Reynolds and Jackson.
