Highly Suspect Reviews: The Hitman’s Bodyguard


Darius Kincaid (Samuel Jackson) is one of the world’s deadliest hitmen, now captured by Interpol and agreeing to give evidence against a despotic Eastern European ruler (Gary Oldman). But Interpol has a mole inside and can’t protect him on their own. That’s when agent Rousell (Élodie Yung) calls in her estranged ex-boyfriend Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds), a top-notch bodyguard (but one currently dealing with career issues) to protect him.

Problem: Kincaid and Bryce have a history of trying to kill each other.

Advantage: goes to the audience who love the old mis-matched buddy action comedies back when they used to be fun.

Chris, Lara, Elliott, and Frank give you the low-down on this love-letter to films like Lethal Weapon.

  1. It seems like this is going to be a better August than most. Between this, Logan Lucky, and some upcoming indie and other releases, August seems to be less of a deadzone than most years this year.

  2. It’s funny that I heard some of my friends react to this in a very luke-warm way. If I go into it expecting the cheese and nacho action, maybe I’ll enjoy it. 😀
