‘The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard’ is the 2021 Action/Comedy sequel to the 2017 film ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’. Of course this one brings back Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool), Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction), and Salma Hayek (From Dusk Till Dawn) while adding Antonio Banderas (The Mask of Zoro), and Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption).
Assassin Darius Kincaid (Jackson), once again teams up with Bodyguard Michael Bryce (Reynolds), but this time it’s Darius’s wife (Hayek) that enlists Bryce’s help in order to Save Kincaid. She ends up getting abducted so they’re forced to work together once again.
This isn’t Reynolds biggest movie out right now, all eyes are on his movie ‘Free Guy’, which I still have yet to see, but I want to. I was really looking forward to this one, the first one is great. This one is filled with plenty of fire power, explosions, and cursing (which is expected in a movie with Jackson, and Reynolds). One thing I thought it was lacking was the comedy, I figured it would be a lot funnier than it was. I was a little disappointed to be honest, maybe I set the bar to high, but it wasn’t funny. It’s entertaining overall, but it was lacking something. I give it a 7/10.
First post of 2021, hopefully things will slowly get back to normal, and a big thank you to my readers. So lets kick it off with a review of ‘The Croods: A New Age’, a 2020 sequel to the 2013 film ‘The Croods’. Just like the first, this one brings an all-star cast starring Nicholas Cage (National Treasure), Emma Stone (Zombieland), Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool), Catherine Keener (The 40-Year-Old Virgin), Cloris Leachman (Young Frankenstein), Clark Duke (Kick-Ass), Leslie Mann (Knocked Up), and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones).
‘The Croods: A New Age’ does a great job of picking up where the last one left off. Guy and the Croods are still in search for the land of tomorrow, which they believe they found at last, but is inhabited with a family named the Betterman’s. The Betterman’s are a family that is superior and more sophisticated than cavemen. The Croods and the Betterman’s may have more in common than what they realize though.
It’s rare a sequel is as good or better than the first film. This one is better, it’s funnier, and has jokes both kids and the parents will both enjoy. I found myself laughing out loud more than once. There’s also more action in this one. Overall it’s a great movie, I give it a 8/10.
