4 / 10

Not nearly as good as the first one

A lot of the comedy seemed very forced. It had some funny moments, but just not nearly as many as the first one. I don't feel like Ryan Reynolds' character even seemed like the same character from the first movie. There was no growth for him after the first movie and it wasn't very funny. Salma Hayek's swearing seemed a little forced too. It seems to come naturally for Sam Jackson, but didn't work the same for her. If you love the first one, maybe skip this one.

5 / 10

A movie that's a pain in the A-double-dollar sign.

Positives:

  • As a comedy thriller, it does pass the '6 laughs test' in terms of the 'comedy' element. Some of these are minor chuckles. A few are really good belly laughs.


  • Among these are some of the outrageous tirades of Salma Hayek: her accent makes some of the dialogue unintelligible, but given its X-rated nature, that's not necessarily a bad thing! As a mid-50's actress (Oh God - - don't tell her I mentioned her age!), Ms Hayek indeed has an arrestingly attractive form.


  • Seeing Antonio Banderas and Morgan Freeman on the screen is never anything other than a positive. (Although Banderas is like Sean Connery in failing to tailor his natural accent to any role he's ever in!)


Negatives:
  • A general problem I have with 'comedy thrillers' is that the comedy nearly always negates any of the thrills. Ryan Reynolds is not playing Deadpool in this one, although he might as well be doing so based on the number of times he is hit by cars and other solid objects. The result is that although it has the trappings of a Bond or a Bourne - exotic locations (here, mostly Italian ones) ; exotic woman; car chases; heavily-armed henchmen; huge explosions - it delivers none of the tension or excitement. When matched with some rather dodgy post-shoot special effects, the effect is generally underwhelming.


  • The plot here is shallow and ludicrous. A McGuffin involving a diamond drill tunnelling into "Europe's data hub" to implant a virus is infantile.


  • If there was an award for the clumsiest movie title of 2021, we may already have a winner.


Summary Thoughts on "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard": Sequels are very occasionally better. Often they are much worse. This one, I have to say, delivers very much "more of the same". Given that the writer/director team of Tom O'Connor and Patrick Hughes are in the driving seat, that's not much of a surprise. The shtick is mildly diverting, occasionally downright funny, but quickly outstays its welcome. The 100 minute run time felt, for me, much longer.

Looking back at my 2017 review of the first film, I think I was being over-kind giving it 6/10. I think this is neither better nor worse. So if you want to average the two and give each 5/10, I wouldn't object! But, again, it's one I will struggle to remember much about in a few month's time.

2 / 10

A mess of a movie which relies too heavily on the type-cast A-Listers to make it entertaining.

It's basically a compilation of overly loud, gory and explosive action scenes interspersed with characters shouting and swearing at each other in the name of plot progression and comedy. The plot and humour is dumb, although it is funny at times, but the slapstick style and poor casting choices make this a bad film.

7 / 10

Don't understand the hate?

Been flicking through a load of the reviews on here and I seriously don't understand the hate. It's just a fun movie, just as crazy as the first one. It doesn't take itself too seriously, the jokes are funny and the action is great. What do you expect from this film? If you want to go and watch a fun, action packed film for an afternoon, go and check it out! If you're expecting some sort of classic, super high budget mind blowing phenomenon, go watch Avatar again or something.

Terrible.

I had to start an account just to come on and say how terrible this was, and I am difficult to displease. Terrible script, I was actually embarrassed watching this.
