THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD (MA15+)

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - EYE MOVIES -

SHOOTS FROM THE LIP, BUT NEVER A BLAST, US, 117 MIN Don’t go ex­pect­ing an­other Dead­pool from Ryan Reynolds and this tired, lack­lus­tre ac­tion com­edy. He plays Michael Bryce, a once-elite bodyguard who has fallen on hard times. A chance at a come­back comes with a catch: pro­tect­ing no­to­ri­ous hitman Dar­ius Kin­caid (Sa­muel L. Jack­son) as he pre­pares to tes­tify against a mur­der­ous dic­ta­tor (Gary Old­man). This patchy premise might have held to­gether OK if Reynolds and Jack­son had clicked. In­stead, the pair­ing mostly clunks. Dis­ap­point­ing.
