In my review about Bodyguard Hitman, I noted how it was genuinely disposable entertainment; The perfect type of film to watch on the plane when you kill time on cross-country flights.
The sequel, Hitman’s wife’s bodyguard, remained loyal to the ethos, chose to go broader, and Sillier to the parody point itself in his purpose to entertain with the belief that this film didn’t matter. When you watch this film, it makes sense why everyone is here.
All actors can play to type, hang out with the actors they like and admire:
Go to a beautiful local in Europe, and collect salaries. Sometimes acting is a mercenary, and while actors schedule projects they believe or will challenge them, sometimes they like to make money and travel like all of us if we are in their position.
The result is films such as Hitman’s wife’s bodyguards. Those are pretty entertaining and immediately forgotten. But if you have fun while watching it, is it essential if it’s nothing special?
Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) feels low since his bodyguard license. It is suspended because Hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) oversees Bryce’s clients in the last film. A sad person, Bryce vacationed on vacation in Capri, Italy, to get his mind correctly. Still, he barely had time to rest before he returned to action by Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek), who needed help Bryce in saving Darius.
However, it was not faster. It was a gang back together. Then spent by Interpol Agent Bobby O’Neill. Frank Grillo made one of the more questionable Boston accents you have heard. To stop the cyberattack from Aristotle Papadopourous (Antonio Banderas). Who wants to drop Europe to make Greece become a power plant on the continent again. Michael, Darius, and Sonia then made their way across Europe, squeezing and killing many nameless thugs.
I would be stunned if Hitman’s wife’s bodyguard had a scenario.
It’s playing more like it is a rough outline. Where characters directs to various locations. And then you just let everyone Riff and drop one or two lines explain why they travel to some local Europeans. There is not much effort into the plot because you will not come to this film for the plot.
You will watch Ryan Reynolds become sarcastic. Samuel L. Jackson says many “bastards,” Salma Hayek for fiery, and Antonio Banderas became friendly. You even got Morgan Freeman appeared in a role that allowed him to take fun in Shawshank Redemption, the second film this year I have seen that Pokes Fun AT Freeman’s Shawkshank Redemption Narration (Barb and Star get a victory).
While Hitman’s bodyguard was a film action that leaned many on comedy:
Hitman’s wife’s bodyguard was more comfortable to be an all-out comedy that happened to have an action scene. The action scene is fine. Patrick Hughes’ can be used if it is not inspired. And is very bloody (this film enjoys the rating r in the same way a 12-year-old boy enjoys an R rating).
But it surprises how many Wife’s Hitman’s guards left For the vast comedy (it was also the second film I’ve seen this year where the agonistic background of tragedy involving a mother’s funny death). The film’s priority is laughing and being fair. It raises a consistent laugh if it’s not something awe-inspiring.
And the reason no impressive about Hitman’s wife’s bodyguard is that there are not many reasons to try. The first film is fine, this film is fine, and is quite entertaining, emphasizing the word “enough”. Hitman’s wife’s bodyguard point is not to be your favorite film or even a movie that you can remember five minutes after you see it.
You pay your money, you are entertained for 99 minutes. And when you leave. It’s mortal, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Not every film must be an eternal classic or even leave a lot of impacts. Sometimes it’s about having fun, and no one sweats. After stress 2020, I can appreciate something breezy with Hitman’s wife’s bodyguard.
