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.

Midnight Run was hilarious.  This movie doesn't look like it was 
intentionally played for laughs.

  If it weren't, it'd have been cast differently.  But you're right, 
it's a bit schizo in that regard, to the detriment of both aspects.

Thanks, that's helpful.  I was thinking about seeing it, but something 
about it looked off to me.

Ryan Reynolds was funny in this but Samuel L. Mutha Fuckn Jackson
kills any movie he’s in, as he always plays the same character and they
should have cast someone else for his role.

But its worth watching if you’ve got nothing else to do.

While I do enjoy Reynolds's shtick more than I do Jackson's (by now), I 
couldn't really see either reaching for new ground here.  That's okay, 
of course, as lots of actors play themselves for an entire career.  But, 
in this instance, Reynolds's comic persona seemed an ill fit with, e.g., 
war atrocities and high body-counts,,,

What you call an 'ill fit' was really the only thing that saved an 
otherwise empty action film.
