Trivia

As Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) is escaping by boat, the "Wilhelm Scream" can be heard when Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds), trying to keep up on a motorcycle, pushes a man off a bicycle into the river. See more »

Goofs

Kincaid is wearing handcuffs when he puts on his car seat belt. Thereafter his hands are shown handcuffed in front of him over the seat belt. This would only be possible of the handcuffs were put on after the seat belt was fastened, otherwise the chain connecting the cuffs would be under the belt. See more »

Great action comedy
8 August 2017 | by (Redwood City, CA) – See all my reviews

Just watched a sneak preview of The Hit-man's Bodyguard. I had high expectations given the cast of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson. The movie exceeded these expectations! Over the top comedy and action -- best combination since Deadpool last year. Definitely worth watching!

I'm a long-time IMDb user, but this movie was so good, I felt I needed to get an IMDb login so I could review it!

Top movie I've seen this year, edging out Baby Driver!
