The Hitman's Bodyguard

HH6 and I watched this last night. It was pretty funny but took awhile to take off. Good chase scenes, some very funny parts, gun "play" was comical. Overall a good show but not sure if I could recommend watching it a theater and paying full price...

Samuel Jackson makes the show. His character had me rolling, Ryan Reynolds was OK and had his moments. Selma Hayak was painful to watch but I can see why they used her. Gary Oldman was good as always but his character didn't get a chance to really take off (IMHO).

Thanks for that, I was on the fence. Now I will wait for it to hit Netflix
It must be a blessing to some that stupidity isn't painful...

I just watched it on HBO and really liked it. Kind of a mix of Deadpool meets Samual Motherfucker Jackson. Itís pretty much non-stop action and I laughed a lot.

Thought it was hilarious.

I've watched it at least 3x times.

It always seem to catch it on Saturday evening, so I will leave it one while I get ready to go to work.

Even though I enjoy it, I am glad that I didn't go to the theater and pay full price to see it.

I find/feel it is a sit back and relax kind of movie that you can watch and enjoy without having to think.

As 10thVet stated, lots of action, guns and chase scenes which some are over the top but it is fun.
