    Non-stop violence embraced in laugh-out loud comedy. Would see it again.

    I'll admit it's not a great movie. Seems there is swearing just to swear after only a few minutes and it doesn't let up. There was a lot of curse words even for a Sam Jackson movie.. Kinda cut up and hard to follow at times but I liked it. It was just funny enough to carry it for me.

    The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, (yep it got a sequel), is the type of action comedy where it's nasty in violence and crude in script, so it depends on whatever or not you feel uncomfortable by it. The action scenes are quick cuts and nothing special. The biggest take away I got from this is how bad I felt for Ryan Reynolds character Michael Bryce. Never have I seen a character in a comedy go through so much trauma, pain, neglect, and humiliation. There came a point in the movie where the character is covered in someone else's blood, but he just leaves it on him for a while, not really reacting to it because I guess he's already lost his insanity. On the bright side of things, there were three jokes that I thought were funny. 1.) There's a jump scare where Salema Hayek sneaks up and appears behind Ryan Reynolds. 2.) How Morgan Freeman is introduced in the movie was unexpected, genuinely funny, and easily the best joke of the movie. 3.) Michael Bryce tragic backstory to how his mother died was so stupid and ridiculous, which made it even more of a tragedy. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson once again have decent chemistry despite the two playing the same characters from other movies. Salema Hayek, who is in her late 50's, still looks good despite the movie portraying her as a screaming old hag. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to find Frank Grillo's character funny, because I didn't laugh at his jokes. Antonio Banderas is always charming in everything he does, even if he is playing a basic evil villain. Overall rating: A loud "shoot ‘em up" movie that doesn't do anything else than pass the time and be entertaining...for some.

    It's passable, but it just does not have the drive and the consistent pace of the first movie.

    The writing and storyline in the sequel was poor. The first one was awesome. Very disappointed.

    Samuel, Ryan and Selma are in top form. Great action along with great comic timing.
  • Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
    I didn't think the first film really warranted a sequel but okay. We get more of the dysfunctional tag team of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson in action scenes. Lots of action scenes which were nicely filmed.

    The editing and the dialogues are terrible, but I had so much fun
