Subject: THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD (no spoilers)
THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD is a "surefire" serio-comic action-fest starring
Ryan Reynolds as a bodyguard par excellence assigned to protect noted
killer Samuel L. Jackson from the even worse despot Gary Oldman. Shades
of MIDNIGHT RUN, right? Alas, that proven premise is frittered away on
two hours of pedestrian Reynolds/Jackson-shtick and enough car stunts to
suggest a budget too big to be risked on, say, a little creative
writing. Minimally recommended.
