THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD REVIEWED

“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” is the very definition of an over-performing August movie. Capitalizing on Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds’ charm, the film coasts by with…an amazing cast. Seriously, I’m trying to find something not to like about the movie and I’m pulling air. The plot played like a classic late 80s/early 90s cable favorite? It’s the kind of movie that doesn’t talk down to its audience, but doesn’t skimp on the action? Why won’t I let myself enjoy this one?

I guess it’s because I expect more from modern movies. We live in an era where just enjoying two mainstream actors playing well off each other isn’t enough. The Dolby Atmos track is really expansive for a Blu-ray release. It plays well to a crowd and HEY! Nothing, I just thought I saw early career Salma Hayek and not serious modern Salma Hayek. There’s not much of a difference outside of what you can find on Mr. Skin.

My point is that I guess it’s like that South Park episode where Stan is starting to feel like he’s aging out of stuff. I’m self aware enough to enjoy the movie, but is it necessary? IS IT NECESSARY?
