THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD
A hitman is due to appear on trial in Europe and is assigned protection.
Comedy-action starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson
If your idea of a good night out is watching Sam Jackson do his mutha-fu**in schtick another mutha-fu**in time, this is the mutha-fu**in film for you, mutha-fu**a! Get the idea? Reynolds brings some charisma to his role, otherwise it's a shrill exercise in death, carnage and blowin' sh*t up. There's a freshness in watching this sh*t go up in London and Amsterdam instead of some amorphous American city, but that's not really worth the price of admission.
