Hitman's Bodyguard Review: A Fun But Familiar Action Romp
There was a time, before the phrase "cinematic universe" was a thing, that the two-hander action comedy was as good as box office gold. Classics like 48 Hours, Lethal Weapon, Midnight Run and Rush Hour spawned sequels and franchises, pitting two mismatched "partners" with each other to reach a common goal. These days, they aren't nearly as common as they once were, which is why Lionsgate's The Hitman's Bodyguard almost feels like a throwback to a bygone era, with two of today's most charismatic actors, Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson pitted against each other. While the action and the chemistry between these stars most certainly works, my enjoyment of the movie was often hampered by a story that's even more derivative than the trailers present.

What I was also surprised by was the rather intense level of action here, with some truly thrilling set pieces that I wasn't really expecting.

Film Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’

Film Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’
“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” is about as close to a live-action cartoon as you’re likely to get this year — you know, the kind where someone blows a cannonball-shaped hole through Wile E. Coyote’s abdomen or a stick of dynamite reduces him to a pile of cinders, and the next thing you know, he’s up and chasing the Road Runner again. That’s not a style that works much of the time (see “Shoot ’Em Up” or early Arnold Schwarzenegger flop “The Villain”), but in the hands of “The Expendables 3” helmer Patrick Hughes — and more importantly, owing to the chemistry of stars Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds — it makes for a delightfully ridiculous screwball action comedy.

The premise is simple: Jackson plays the hitman, Darius Kincaid, Reynolds plays his bodyguard, Michael Bryce, and they both need to get from London to the Hague without getting killed. That

Bruce Willis Goes Full Nicolas Cage in Dismal Action Vehicle ‘Once Upon a Time in Venice’ — Review

Bruce Willis Goes Full Nicolas Cage in Dismal Action Vehicle ‘Once Upon a Time in Venice’ — Review
Bruce Willis has been creeping up on Nicolas Cage’s bread and butter — C-level action movies that pass through the multiplex with little in the way of fanfare and less in the way of actual audience interest — for a few years now, turning in roles in mostly underseen films like “Fire With Fire,” “Precious Cargo,” and “Vice” with startling regularity (while, somehow, still landing genuinely exciting parts in films like the upcoming “Death Wish” remake and the long-hyped “Glass”). But Mark Cullen’s ruthlessly boring and decidedly dismal “Once Upon a Time in Venice” marks a new low in Willis’ still-trucking action career, one that even Cage would likely flinch at, even if it does feature an entire sequence dedicated to naked skateboarding.

Slipshod from the start, the film opens with voiceover narration care of Thomas Middleditch, who — despite serving as our entry point into the crime-ridden but colorful Venice,

Arrow Season 5 Blu-Ray Release Date And Extras Revealed

As much as I personally love Arrow, even I had to admit that a few missteps were taken with season 4, just as some of the cast and crew have. That said, it was all the more satisfying to see the daddy of The CW’s shared DC TV universe return to form this year, effectively serving up its best effort since season 2.

Aside from Stephen Amell continuing to be an all-around badass each week, Team Arrow gained some new recruits such as Mr. Terrific, Wild Dog and even a new Black Canary, helping to keep the series feeling fresh. Not only that, but Prometheus made for the best big bad the show’s seen since Deathstroke (who also made his return late in the game), and may have very well been the deadliest, most calculating threat Oliver Queen has encountered to date.

With that, we’re excited to say that

Action packed new trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Scott Davis

Summit Entertainment and Millenium Films has today unveiled a brand new trailer for their anticipated action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which you can view in the player below!

The new film stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool, Life) and Samuel L. Jackson (Kong: Skull Island, Avengers: Infinity War) and thus far the marketing has been making a few loving pokes at the classic 1992 film The Bodyguard including utilising the poster and Whitney Houston’s famous song “I Will Always Love You” to add to the “fun” aspect of the film.

The second trailer, however, goes all out on the action front as well as a whole host of R-rated humour for which Reynolds and Jackson are dab hands at. In the film, Reynolds plays the world’s leading bodyguard and is offered a new job: guarding one of the world’s leading hitmen (Jackson) – but, as you would have expected,

Consider With Reservations: The Stars of Quantity Over Quality Cinema

The stars of yesterday now are making three films a year you never knew existed until they show up on Netflix.^ Real Movie ^

In my prior life as a script reader, I certainly read a lot of bad scripts, but at times, an even more common occurrence was a script that seemed to do a great many things right, but somehow fell just short of being something you wanted to champion as a movie. As draining as the terrible scripts were, there’s something pure about clear-cut bad. It takes little effort to explain why they’re unfit.

The real challenges were the scripts that had kind of a decent premise, kind of an okay twist or two, and a lead character who wasn’t bad so much as he or she was just… there. The raw materials are there for what Could be a script. They just happen to be assembled in the least compelling way

This Nsfw trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard is everything

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson will be seen on screen together in the forthcoming The Hitman’s Bodyguard, a new (very) R-rated action comedy coming in August.

The world’s top protection agent (Reynolds) is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hitmen (Samuel L. Jackson). The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous and hilarious adventure from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades and a merciless Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldman) who is out for blood. Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson’s equally notorious wife.

Elodie Yung, Joaquim De Almeida, Kirsty Mitchell, and Richard E. Grant are also amongst the cast of this hilarious looking new movie,

The First Trailer For The Hitman’s Bodyguard Delivers Action And Laughs

Imagine if Pulp Fiction’s Jules Winnfield got older, and grumpier, and had to get to a specific location while under fire from potential assassins. Then imagine that any pre-Deadpool Ryan Reynolds character had to get him there. That’s basically what we have in The Hitman’s Bodyguard and, to great surprise, it looks to be exactly the film you’ll need to give your summer a boost.

Directed by Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3), The Hitman’s Bodyguard is the second script from Tom O’Connor (Fire With Fire), and boasts a wider cast that includes Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung (Daredevil), Gary Oldman, and Joaquim de Almeida (Our Brand Is Crisis). The premise is simple – the world’s greatest hitman (Samuel L. Jackson) needs to get to the International Court Of Justice alive, and the world’s greatest bodyguard (Ryan Reynolds) has to get him there. Complications

If you've been dreaming of the day where Deadpool and Nick Fury trade R-rated barbs on the big screen, you may have to just keep dreaming. But, if you'll settle for Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L.

Arrow season 5 episode 16 review: Checkmate

Tyler McCarthy Mar 16, 2017

Checkmate might be the best episode of Arrow season 5 so far, with the most charismatic and scary villain to boot...

This review contains spoilers.

5.16 Checkmate

At long last, Arrow season five has cut all the foreplay, faffing about, and stalling to deliver an incredibly satisfying one-on-one bout. As if that wasn’t enough, Checkmate rewarded viewers for investing in the mayoral aspect of the show with an impressive and intense political drama.

No time was wasted catching the characters up to speed following last week’s surprising reveal that Adrian Chase (newcomer to the cast Josh Segarra) wasn’t the surprising new anti-hero to arrive in Star City, Vigilante, as his comic book namesake implied. Instead, he’s the new dark archer in town, Prometheus. Our hero figured it out with a brief trip to

‘Arrow’: Josh Segarra on Playing an ‘Unhinged’ Prometheus and His Plans to Destroy Oliver’s Life

‘Arrow’: Josh Segarra on Playing an ‘Unhinged’ Prometheus and His Plans to Destroy Oliver’s Life
Spoiler Alert: This post contains “Arrow” spoilers. Do not read until you have watched through Season 5, episode 15 titled “Fighting Fire with Fire,” which aired on the CW March 1.

Two weeks ago, “Arrow” answered the season-long question “Who is Prometheus?” with the shocking reveal that it was Star City district attorney Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra).

The reveal happened for no one but the audience, and the episode ended with Chase using his continued anonymity to kidnap Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) ex-girlfriend, journalist Susan Williams (Carly Pope). Variety spoke with Segarra about playing D.A. Chase vs Prometheus Chase, what’s in store for Susan, and more.

How different is Chase the D.A. and Chase as Prometheus? Is he more unhinged as Prometheus?

When he has that mask on I think he allows himself to go — to use the word you used — unhinged. As the actor, I’d see the suit, the

Arrow Season 5 Episode 15 Review – ‘Fighting Fire with Fire’

Jessie Robertson reviews the fifteenth episode of Arrow season 5…

Winter Soldier homages, more political speak, and Curtis’ balls on display….what more could you want?

When you stand back and look at the CW’s shows, on the overall scale, it seems the universal opinion that The Flash is the best of them all; I mean, it’s doing amazing numbers and well deserved. The show is fun, just penetrate under your skin and heart fun, it’s warm, it has amazing special effects, and a cast that may not be seconded on television right now. But, for my money, in its comeback season, Arrow tells the most complete, most driven and compelling storylines week to week. Gone is the magic, and mystical and nuclear weapons (those showed up on Flash this week). It’s back to the streets; bad dudes beating up on bad dudes. But, this season, we

Just when you thought you had a handle on the villains on Season 5, Arrow threw a big old curveball at viewers while expanding the role of its most interesting newcomer. At long last, the identity of one of the year’s two big bads is revealed, as huge shadows of doubt are cast on the other.

This episode promised to be another big bout with the morally ambiguous anti-hero, Vigilante. Plucked directly from the pages of DC Comics, many Arrow fans have thought they’ve known who the man behind the mask was for quite some time.

Arrow Season 5 Episode 15 Review: “Fighting Fire With Fire”

There’s plenty of great individual moments throughout tonight’s Arrow, from Diggle reminding Felicity that her true superpower is empathy to Curtis saving the day with his T-Spheres, a creation he hopes will not only help Team Arrow out in the field but will also help mend his and Paul’s broken relationship. Unfortunately, though, a couple really strong scenes aren’t enough to save “Fighting Fire With Fire” from being a mostly dull and uneventful episode, an hour that spends more time on Oliver Queen as a politician and less time on him as a superhero and suffers for it.

Arrow Season 5 Episode 15 Review: Fighting Fire With Fire

  • TVfanatic
Wait... so Adrian is Prometheus?

We were blessed with that reveal Arrow Season 5 Episode 15, and I could not be more shocked. Throughout the course of Arrow Season 5, Adrian was seemingly Vigilante.  

When Prometheus took the mask off and was revealed to be Adrian, I had to rewind confirm I did, indeed, see him take off the Prometheus mask. Seriously, it was such a thrilling twist and made this season infinitely more intriguing. 

The show led us to believe all season long that Adrian was helping Oliver, but he was hiding in plain sight while planning his next move. Additionally, it seemed rather easy to have this Prometheus reveal so soon. 

I thought for sure it was going to be dragged kicking and screaming until the end of the season. I like when shows have an element of surprise, but Arrow has been pretty predictable of late. Hopefully, this marks a
