Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard

Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (2021 film) theatrical release poster.jpg

The chemistry and charm between Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson was just enough to find this film enjoyable despite the lackluster plot!!!

Real Rating: 3.5 Samuel L. Jackson’s Laughs

What I Like:

-The charm of Ryan Reynolds and the intensity of Samuel L. Jackson really made this chemistry work, their comedic timing in their dialogue really comes off naturally, add a crazy Selma Hayek to this mix, and it can be a wild ride for sure
-The action was pretty good, I give credit to director Patrick Hughes for making it entertaining to watch
-The cinematography was really good, capturing the beautiness of certain cities in Italy, it actually made me want to go to Italy

The So So:

-Without spoiling it, there is a certain scene and cameo which was great at first, but when you start thinking about it it leaves you with a lot of questions in trying to make sense of things

What I Didn’t Like:

-The story was all over the place and sporadic, it really made it hard to follow, and the endgame of it all just didn’t make sense
-How are you going to have Antonio Banderas playing a Greek guy, but still have a Spanish accent?


Let’s face it, the story is not good at all. It may be terrible. With that said, I was still entertained. The action was fun. The chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson is hilarious, even with a crazy Selma Hayek. I laughed more than I probably should. In the end, I enjoyed it enough for what it is!!!
