The Hitman's Bodyguard [2017]

Assalamualaikum, good day dearest! Or should I say good early morning? Suraya girl is backkkk with a movie review! Wuuuhuuuu. This is my little celebration for finishing the first paper of the semester hukhuk. I'm sorry if it's not really good because I'm typing it at 1 in the morning so I probably did not have much comments but anyway, here it is!

Title: The Hitman's Bodyguard
Runtime: 118 minutes
Genre: Action, Comedy, Crime
Country/Language: United States/English
Released year: 2017
Director: Patrick Hughes
Writer: Tom O'Connor
Casts: Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson

Michael Bryce, a once triple-A protection agent was trusted to escort a hitman, Darius Kincaid after Interpol's attempt to bring Kincaid to Hague from Manchester failed. Desperate to restore his once glory days and reputation, Bryce took the job. What seems to be like a simple task became a challenging job especially when both Bryce and Kincaid hold grudges for one another. Adding to the fact that Kincaid was going to testify against a dictator leader of Belarus who wanted him dead, Bryce job became harder. Will they make it to the court in one piece in time? Or will they not?

Sneak peak:

Phew, been so long since I last wrote a movie review other than South Korean. Well, it actually been so long since I last watch a movie sooo =/ Anyway, I found about this movie by chance while scrolling YouTube, so here we are~

I personally really loves this movie. It is so entertaining and comedic and action-filled. I don't remember one scenes where I was bored out of my mind. I giggles all the way through the movie. I love who contradict Bryce and Kincaid are and how they worked their way together. The chemistry between these two actors are undeniable-ly  awesome! One of my favorite scenes were one when Kincaid drove the car on their way to the court (while escaping from the bad guys) then suddenly hit the brakes causing Bryce who was on the passenger sit thrown out of the car (and he's was on the phone with Agent Roussel). That scene came unexpected to me because Bryce had a character that follows the book and all so he not wearing seatbelt was not him. 

The action scenes? Marvelous! I am no professional but I love every single scenes on this movie. With these two characters different approach of escape, it was so hilarious! The in-between romances between Kincaid and his wife (played by Salma Hayek) was so amusing. I was actually expecting more closure on Agent Roussel and Bryce instead of with the way they ended. But okay, I'll take what I'm given.

Though I must say there wasn't much plot developments and it was not the most realist movie ever exist but nahh I'm in the middle of final weeks, this type of movie really does wonder for me. I get a great laugh out of it. So what I can say here is that this movie is a great watch for a good laugh. Oh, if you're not comfortable with vulgar languages better stay clear of this movie. Got tons of it.
