Outwardly it's all as mindless as can be.

The whole film feels slightly grubby and low-res, like it's been languishing in private mode on the filmmakers' pre-HD YouTube page since 2008.

For me, The Hitman's Bodyguard is the epitome of what a summer movie should be.

While no one is going to mistake The Hitman's Bodyguard for high art, it will please those in the mood for late-summer fun.
August 18, 2017
The political realism doesn't sit well with the exploding cars, singing nuns and quipping killers.

"The Hitman's Bodyguard" comes at you hard, but skates by on its charms. Kiss kiss, bang bang.
August 18, 2017
Standard stuff. But it's got more humor and zest than most movies of its kind. And that makes it pretty darn enjoyable.
August 18, 2017
Aside from a handful of chuckles and high-octane action sequences, "The Hitman's Bodyguard" is an ugly film lacking a moral center.
August 17, 2017
A movie that replicates, step by formulaic step, the familiar and now oddly dated template of the inter-racial buddy movies of the Eighties (think 48 Hours or Lethal Weapon).

Why did either of you gentlemen sign up for this tone-deaf piece of work? Who thought it was appropriate to use mass graves as a plot point in an action comedy?

The Hitman's Bodyguard is the cinematic equivalent of a guilty burger drive-thru meal when dinner is too wearisome to contemplate.

One has to give Mr. Hughes credit for the numerous, creative and explosive obstacles he puts in the way of Michael and Darius, not so much for the scattershot tone of the movie as a whole.
August 17, 2017
Even those who try to lose themselves in the meager, mindless thrills of "The Hitman's Bodyguard" may be distracted, if not by the looming specter of current events, then at least by the movie's technical shoddiness.

Reynolds and Jackson make this summer lunacy go down easy with their banter and bullet-dodging skills. They're the only reason this R-rated action comedy doesn't sink into the generic quicksand from whence it came.
August 17, 2017
Despite all the mayhem, "The Hitman's Bodyguard" is a surprisingly bland dish.
August 17, 2017
There's nothing and no one to like in The Hitman's Bodyguard. This is one loud, generic, forgettable late summer action flick.
August 17, 2017
The tone is sophomoric and snide, the wisecracks are uninspired, and the action sequences lack dynamism and suspense.
August 17, 2017
The result is passable stupidity leaning hard on its wily leading men. The movie's also pretty galling in its unceasing brutality for laughs.
August 17, 2017
As 48 hours, Lethal Weapon, et alia have demonstrated, people love a good black and white buddy comedy. And who knows? They may even love a not so good one.
August 17, 2017
The Hitman's Bodyguard is the comfort food of action comedies, like mac and cheese with a side of extreme violence.
