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.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    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.

    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. 😀

      We pretty much said as much during the review.
