Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard: A Brainless & Foul-Mouthed Action Sequel

Share

Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is a 2021 American action comedy film written by Tom O’Connor and Brandon . The film is a sequel to the 2017 film The Hitman’s Bodyguard and features Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Salma Hayek, and Richard E. Grant.

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard doesn’t mince the big-budget action. The film goes full throttle on huge action scenes. I just wish they weren’t so cartoonish. The characters are never in real trouble. And when they get injured, like being hit by a car, they spring back up and continue ass-kicking. None of the action is supposed to be taken seriously. I think the comedy element is overblown. The filmmakers needed to cut back on the farce and insert more realistic danger. The first film was much better in this regard.

Frank Grillo, Richard E. Grant, and Morgan Freeman have supporting roles. They’re initially humorous, then become bland and forgettable. This seems to be the primary fault in all aspects of the narrative. The language, action, and pratfalls are less funny as the film progresses. The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is a production of Millennium Media and Summit Entertainment. It will be released theatrically on June 16th by Lionsgate.
