Have you heard the one about the hitman, his wife and the hapless bodyguard assigned to both of them? It's no joke but the premise of bullet-strewn action-comedy sequel Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, which reunites Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson while throwing in a rogue Salma Hayek for good measure. (Alternative title: The Hitman and Her... and Him.)
Reynolds' Michael Bryce is seeking an escape from the bodyguard lifestyle but his expectations are shattered when he once again runs into Jackson's profane assassin Darius Kincaid. Thanks to a mix-up, Darius' wife Sonia (Hayek), who has recently been released from prison, embroils Michael in another frenetically uproarious mission. Things can only get messy from here. Here's what Unlimited members made of the movie.
Really enjoyed it! Even though it’s violent, it’s such slapstick humour between the three of them! They all crack me up! 🤣😂— Hellie Phillips (@helspels66) June 12, 2021
I really enjoyed #HitmansWifesBodyguard, more insane action, so many laughs. Definitely going to see it again, evidently what my life needed was to see Michael Bryce get repeatedly battered by bad guys. Who knew!?— Emma @ The Movies (@EmmaAtTheMovies) June 12, 2021
Don’t understand the hate from the critics at all. It’s not exactly going to get anybody involved a Little Gold Guy, I admit, but it’s just over an hour and a half of good old silly, loud over the top (& sweary!) movie fun. Forget the reviews, just grab some popcorn & enjoy!— Dave Billingsley (@dab051176) June 12, 2021
Salma Hayek was absolutely fantastic! And also absolutely crazy, but mostly fantastic!— MickyMcKinney (@CaptDaddyPuppy) June 13, 2021
Watched it yesterday. I really enjoyed it. Over the top action film that you could forget the world around you for over an hour. Will definitely watch it again— Mandy Eliott (@MandyDCFC) June 13, 2021
Missed the Unlimited screening? The good news is Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard is now on release in Cineworld.
