.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - This is a violent buddy action comedy that will please fans of the top billed stars, Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson. Salma Hayek only has a small supporting role. Constant language, brutal violence, and some raunchy humor make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average The charismatic stars of "The Hitman's Bodyguard”all combust with masterful comic chemistry as they play off their well-established cinematic personas. As for the high-speed vehicular stunts, they are breathless, relentless, endless—and a bit too numbingly generic.

USA Today Full Review
Average Chock-full of familiarity, the middling buddy film is a rather basic mash-up of what made its two A-list stars famous. For Reynolds and especially Jackson completists, The Hitman's Bodyguard has something to offer even if the action flick can't completely find its aim.

NY Post Full Review
Poor ..."The Hitman's Bodyguard” really seems to revel in explosively bloody shots to the head, scoring gunfights with a bombastic chorus of male voices chanting "Hoo! Ha!” Which would be laughable if the whole thing weren't so mean-spirited.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average Reynolds and Jackson make this summer lunacy go down easy with their banter and bullet-dodging skills. They're the only reason that The Hitman's Bodyguard doesn't completely sink into the generic quicksand from whence it came.
