Rated R for strong violence and language throughout.
Hello, Movie Buffs!
I just saw The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) and I was pretty impressed. I like action/comedy films and this film is worth seeing in theaters with a group of people. The Hitman's Bodyguard is a combination of the humor/language from Deadpool and the action from Jack Reacher; kind of like a more vulgar version of Rush Hour. This film received an R rating mostly due to the profound language – an overabundance of the F-bomb (Jackson has made a career on using the F-bomb) – and some action sequences. The chemistry between Ryan Reynolds’ and Samuel L. Jackson’s characters was pretty good and as the film goes on we start to see the personality, and even some reasoning, behind the who the characters are. There are times when the use of vulgar language gets a bit annoying especially when you hear the F-word every 5 seconds but at the same time, it plays a part in explaining the main characters personalities. Also, Salma Hayek's character as a totally violent person was surprising and fun to watch.
