The Hitman's Bodyguard: an enjoyable film for fans of Jackson and Reynolds, not for kids.

Jackson and Reynold have great comedic chemistry in this Lionsgate action flick. Most of this comedy comes out of the near-constant expletives. While some of the expletives may be justified in near-death situations for both characters, the movie's creators really could have backed off. Without the constant swearing and images of homicidal situations(mass killings) toward the end of the film, it probably could have pulled off a PG-13 rating. Most violence is not too graphic, is seen from a great distance, and is extremely fast-paced. Another questionable element is the torture of Reynolds' character Michael Bryce, which may be inappropriate for immature viewers. The plot is great, the action is awesome, and the movie's great for mature viewers; however; it could really do without the swearing.

A Mindless Comedy Marred by Cuss Words and Explosions

The swearing is excessive, the violence can be rather gratuitous at points, and the overall story is meaningless and substance-less. The only redeeming factor is the chemistry between Jackson and Reynolds, who do work very well together.

Really fun but not very good

Honestly, this movie is one of my favourite movies ever. I think the amount of entertainment put in to it kinda makes you forget that it's actually not a very good movie cause In terms of pure film quality, the script is bad and the plot is messy...but it's extremely entertaining. I would suggest The Hitman's Bodyguard if you're just looking to watch something fun.

It would have been a family night movie but...

So much swearing it hurts my ears. The constant use of mother f and fu-- and other stuff really takes the fun out of the movie. To be honest those kissing scenes were not necessary in the movie whatsoever. It shows this bodyguard and his girlfriend kissing really hard and him grabbing her in certain places and becoming all aroused the second they met. Too much of one thing leads to disaster. Other than that the movie is fine.

Really funny,really violent

This movie is good. It coasts on the comedic banter between Jackson and Reynolds. This will make you laugh a lot because of the way they act. Jackson plays a hitman who just "does his thing" and uses openings and just wings it. Reynolds plays a bodyguard who is logical and plans everything out to the second with his fancy guns and stuff. When they get together it is hilarious. That said it is very brutally violent with over one hundred and forty three people dead by the end with lots of blood spraying out of them and onto walls and other things like that. People die in a variety of ways (Shot being the most common, but also stabbed, burnt, chocked, impaled, crushed, etc...) the language is extreme. The F bomb is used almost twice a scene. This is a very funny movie but keep all kids away from it.

Take out the F word and it would only be 20 min long!

The swearing was so unnecessary and distracting in this ho hum movie. I’m fine with a well placed swear word for meaning or emphasis but this was ridiculous! Violence was definitely rated R, graphic but not really scary. Done with humorous intent most of the time. Overdone
