Suspend your disbelief during the action/shooting scenes and you should find this movie very entertaining. Lot's of fast driving, explosions and humorous moments from the "functional" dysfunctional romances going on with the main characters.

This movie gave me EVERYTHING I needed from it. These two guys doing these guys' things? Check. Creative and fun action scenes? Check. Ryan and Sam looking good? Oh yeah. It even had a little bit of an interesting story... Not pure gold art, but a fun and (spoiler alert!) profanity filled film! Seriously, a LOT of the F word. Again, that's kinda as I'd expected.

This is no Pulp Fiction! Pretty bad what I saw.

Enjoyed the film's premise as prescribed by its title and most of the stunts during the main men's run-ins with the East European thugs. A little too much of everything as body counts, boat/car/motorcycle chases, soapy romance etc, the main attraction was the banters among the main characters and their unexpected antics. Another good goofy action buddy comedy with Reynolds as "The Nice Guys 2016" with Russel Crowe.

The Hitman's Bodyguard was a clever and witty movie, with a good storyline and brilliant actors. Reynolds and Jackson go so well together as an action duo. This movie had the right amout of comedy and seriousness, and it gelled together well with the storyline. All actors in this movie were brilliant, making the movie even better. Overall, the Hitman's Bodyguard is definitely a movie that I would watch again.

Ok....This movie is not going to be everybody’s cup of tea, but should be taken for what it’s suppose to be....action/comedy.
I was instantly hooked just watching the trailer first, and then thoroughly entertained with action and very funny story lines. It’s one of the best action/comedy movies I've watched in quite a while...Samuel Jackson was in the most funniest role of his life, Reynolds was amazing too.

What segment of moviegoers demand CONSTANT F*** and even MORE M****F**** ?
The rest of the script has so much other sex talk and foul language that even many of the
"funny" parts are embarrasing. NOT for family viewing !
Car chase scenes are endless and so unbelievable , thousands of rounds of automatic weapon
fire destroying cars but not the "heroes", the violence so extreme, that what could have been an average thriller movie is a big dud instead.

Going into this movie ones expects many 4 letter words. Didn't matter to me. I thought this was a smart, Ryan Reynolds funny, swear king Jackson & a ton of action. We enjoyed this movie.

Great action film with lots of laugh out loud moments! Keeps you on the edge of your seat with all the twist and turns. Plus it has a winning end.

Good action flick with funny dialog. People with virgin ears (see comments below) who have never seen a Sam L Jackson movie should stick to The Andy Griffith Show.
