    I really liked this movie. Insane amounts of action and very funny. Not worth 4K I got the Blu-ray. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson had a lot of fun making this movie together and they work really well together. Not for little kids TONS of profanity. Now the bad side of this movie, extremely predictable at times, especially the end, but just go in knowing that and enjoy the interaction between the two stars. Cinematically well done, not awesome. Fight and chase scenes very well done and made up most of the movie. Salma Hayek may have the foulest mouth in the movie, but she is really funny. Over all a good fun film, maybe more of a renter. Easy to give a 5 star by knowing what you are getting when you are ready to watch it.

    Funny, Arguably Over The Top, In A Good Way

    I laughed quite a bit. Good action sequences. No, they're not all believable but I think that was the point. Although they weren't cops, it had a Lethal Weapon or Rush Hour feel to it. Good on-screen chemistry. The reason I got this in 4K, other than the fact that it was on sale, is the scenery. I have no idea how much of it was real or fake but it was well done and I really wanted to see how it looked in 4K. Sharp images and great colors. All in all I am happy with this purchase.

    I saw several trailers for this movie prior to purchasing it. I like Ryan Reynolds and from what I saw of the trailers it looked like an interesting, if not funny, movie. I certainly was not disappointed. There was a lot of action scenes and numerous situations that were very humorous. It fulfilled both my action and comical relief hunger while watching. The premise that a hitman would need any kind of protection is comical in itself, but Ryan plays well off of Samuel to pull it off.

    This is actually a really good movie. Ryan Reynolds is a great actor, with him supporting Samuel L Jackson it's great. They have great chemistry together, and I would love to see them in the nether movie together. Possibly some sort of sequel, if they do a sequel God please let them plot a new storyline. I hate sequels that follow the storyline of the first movie. When it comes to a sequel you expand on the original storyline not copy it, like every Hangover movie.

    My sides hurt from how much I laughed at this movie. I went to see this movie with my dad who doesn't go to the cinema much and only saw it because Sam Jackson was in it. He couldn't stop laughing either. It was a really good bonding movie for us. Ryan Reynolds being the kind of straight man to Sam Jackson's ridiculousness was a very good balance. For me it was great watching Deadpool and Nick Fury work together... except it was a sort of role-reversal.

    Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson play great off of each other, the two have excellent comedic abilities. The language and ultra violence may / is not appropriate for children. However other than that it takes you on a wild ride of action including chase scenes, fighting scenes, weapons shootings, memory flashbacks. Character development is pretty good, and the acting is excellent by the entire cast. No spoilers in this review!

    This is a good action film with lots of explosions, car chases, martial arts and other action stuff. It is not a heavy film and the two main characters have a good time insulting each other. I like action films with a touch of comedy but a solid story line. My wife liked this film too and she is not usually a fan of action films. Both leads were solid and played well together.

    Hitman's Bodyguard Review

    Don't waste your money on this firm. There is a reason it is on cable so soon. It is so contrived and boring (even with one shoot out and chase scene right after another) you will pray that the film ends soon. Every other word is an obscenity (not that it matters) which makes up the majority of the script. Obviously, these actors needed the money

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
