10/10: A Sequel That Tops Its...
Saturday, September 18, 2021

A Sequel That Tops Its Predecessor As the sequel to 2017's "The Hitman's Bodyguard," "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" is far funnier and even more satirical than its hyperactive predecessor. Actress Elodie Yung is the only cast member who doesn't reprise her role as Michael Bryce's girlfriend Interpol Agent Amelia Roussel. Scenarists Tom O'Connor and Philip & Brandon Murphy make no mention of Agent Roussel's absence in their screenplay. Nevertheless, supporting characters in the original film encore in cameos, including Richard E. Grant as the paranoid accountant Seifert who sought Bryce's services after the disastrous airport debacle involving an infamous Asian executive Kurosawa (Tsuwayuki Saotome). Moreover, we learn about the circumstances surrounding Darius Kincaid's incredible shot that put Kurosawa in a coffin. A similar group of nuns that accompanied Michael and Darius on the bus in the original appear on ferry with Michael and Sonia. Salma Hayek's role has been considerably...

8/10: Zany and Over the Top...

Zany and Over the Top I seem to be going on a bit of a Ryan Reynolds bender here because this is the third Reynolds film that I have watched in a week. Maybe I should cap it off with Deadpool since I've been doing a bit of that. Anyway, I ended up going and seeing this because the first one was pretty good. You could say that it was one of those old school over the top action films, and that is seriously something that has been missing of late. Well, all I can say is that this film certainly didn't disappoint. In fact the entire cinema was cracking up in laughter (all five other people mind you - thanks CoVid).This is basically the sequel to The Hitman's Bodyguard, and as I have suggested, it is pretty much as zany as the first, except that they decide to have Darius' Kinkaid's wife play a much...

7/10: The Wife's Hitman Bodyguard...

The Wife's Hitman Bodyguard. Going with friends for a weekend in Milton Keynes,we originally planned to see Nobody (2021) until the Cineworld in Milton Keynes was charging double the price for this "peak hours" showing (£14 a ticket) then the one local two us was (at £7!) Looking at the second option,we randomly picked a film playing at the Odeon, got the tickets for £8 each,and prepared to meet the bodyguard.View on the film:Taking on the hitman and the bodyguard, Salma Hayek gives a mesmerising performance as Sonia, whose tongue-twisting one-liners are delivered by Hayek with a real relish,which is matched with an infectious enthusiasm as Hayek dives into the high-kicking action set-pieces.Shaken by their last encounter, Ryan Reynolds gives a very funny turn as Bryce, who Reynolds locks into panic mode, bouncing from a reunion with trigger-happy assassins,to terrified at running into world dominating baddies...

6/10: Dumb fun Bodyguard Michael Bryce...
Saturday, August 21, 2021

Dumb fun Bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and hit man Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) are back back together. Still unlicensed, Bryce is forced ito come back into the killer's orbit by Darius' wife, con artist Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek). Now, they have to save Europe from a killer virus and the plan to make Greece great again from Aristotle Papdopolous (Antonio Banderas). And just who might Morgan Freeman be?This film is a sequel to the 2017 film The Hitman's Bodyguard and features Reynolds, Jackson, Hayek and Richard E. Grant reprising their roles, with Frank Grillo (alwats welcome in more films!), Tom Hopper, Banderas and Freeman joining the guns and comedy party. Around 150 of the crew came back to work on this sequel as well.Incredibly, while Jackson met Freeman when both were struggling stage actors in New York, this is the first feature film they've ever appeared in together!The story really isn't...

7/10: An Above Average If Not...

An Above Average If Not Breakthrough Action Comedy Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, and Salma Hayek reprise their characters in this sequel to the action comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017). In a rather more convoluted plot that adds Antonio Banderas and Morgan Freeman to the list of characters, this sequel does not really break any new ground, but does pull together the elements of action comedy in a bit splashier way and incorporates a decent dose of emotional backstories and somewhat more personal intimate scenes that add a nice balance to the action comedy. The threat to the European Union is quite a nice new spin on mass destruction. There are a few places where the movie threatened to become an unintended parody but pulled itself out with experienced acting. Overall, this movie is an enjoyable summer movie that offers a little mental attention to follow the plot and the relaxed luxury to join in the visual and auditory...
