This film has been advertised for a while now, and it’s got two amazing actors in it – Ryan Reynolds, who is hilarious, and Samuel L. Jackson, who is very good at molding himself to whatever role he takes on.
The film takes you on a journey with Reynolds, as he acts as a protection agent to some of the richest people in the world…..until one of his clientele gets shot in the head as he’s about to head back to Japan.
Reynolds is then recruited by his (gorgeous) ex-girlfriend, Amelia Roussel, to protect Darius Kincaid – a notorious hitman, who’s in jail, but is being transported to Amsterdam to help overthrow the evil leader of Belarus.Embed from Getty Images
Ryan Reynolds has the perfect amount of comic timing, and Samuel L. Jackson does his best at being evil (but good at the same time!).
Salma Hayek is hilarious as Jackson’s wife, the imprisoned Sonia Kilcaid, and there are a couple of laugh out loud moments which take place in her prison cell.
Overall, the film is definitely worth a watch. There’s enough comedy, teamed with action and love.
Score – 4/5
