The Hitman’s Bodyguard

 

Samuel L Jackson as Darius Kincaid

Salma Hayek as Sonia Kincaid

Gary Oldman as Vladislav Dukhovich

Elodie Yung as Amelia Ryder

Length: 118 minutes

 

“The Hitman tells the unlikely tale of Samuel L. Jackson starring as Darius Kinaid who cannot be killed and finds himself in the unlikely role of working with legitimate forces to stop a particular bad guy. A gun for hire he forms an unlikely partnership with top bodyguard cautious Michael Bryce who is forced to keep Jackson’s reckless Darius Kincaid safe while transporting him from London to the Hague so he can testify against a genocidal Belarusian tyrant.

As the villain, Gary Oldman—a seasoned actor is hard to love as most villains will be but he delivers a measured and convincing performance.  When Bryce complains that Kincaid keeps putting him in harm’s way, Jackson goes ballistic saying: “I AM harm’s way. My job is to harm.”

There are various attempts at wittiness with dark jokes, such as when Bryce grouses that Kincaid “single-handedly ruined the word ‘motherfucker.'" There are also some solo singing performances that are unlikely to make Idols, such as when as Kincaid insists on drunkenly singing a bluesy number to pass the time in the car, while Bryce counters by warbling a falsetto version of Ace of Base’s “I Saw the Sign.” There is also a cameo performances in a van filled with nuns.

That doesn’t even cover the contributions of Hayek, whose Sonia is being kept in a Dutch jail in order to guarantee Kincaid will provide evidence against Oldman. The actress calmly strikes yoga poses behind bars as she fiercely lashes out at any law official stupid enough to hassle her.

Meanwhile, she intimidates her cellmate into standing in the corner. The intimidation of law officials does not appear credible but she ensures that these scenes are at least watchable. The on and off relationship between the movies main protagonists ensures that the movie is enthralling to watch.
