Cinema Cindy Reviews 'The Hitman’s Bodyguard'

on September 2, 2017 - 6:36am
Los Alamos
The Hitman’s Bodyguard is a funny, but violent movie, an unlikely “bromance” between Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. Watching this film, you will not be bored.
But, movie lovers beware: common, vulgar epithets are overused throughout the film; many cars are hot-wired; many automatic weapons are discharged; every bullet that hits its target produces blood; the bodies, in the end, are too many to number; Interpol gets a very bad rap in this story; maverick guys with security training are the heroes.
