THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD (Theatrical Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

The Hitman’s Bodyguard—Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds—presents non-stop action scenes filled with non-stop ‘smart’ dialogue.  The storyline has been done many times before and the format is nothing new. It’s a cookie cutter action flick that runs as an almost run-of-the-mill piece of entertainment of good guys versus bad guys. Worth a watch, when in the mood for an action movie.

 Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This movie works as a simple thrill ride that’s good while it lasts, but it has no substance other than lights, noise, flash, and non-stop dialogue patter.
