The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard (2021) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard – the sequel no one asked for arrives in cinema with little fan fare when, in truth, this is a film that could quite happily ended up on Netflix without anyone really caring (and [probably done better business).  Because, being really honest, this is probably not the best use of two hours of anyone’s time.  Is it terrible?  At times yes.  Did I hate it? No. Would I recommend it? Maybe if you REALLY really liked the first film.   Because the Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is more of the same – just with an added A-List cast members all bringing their A-grade swearing game – including a potty mouth Salma Hayek, an F-Bombing Morgan Freeman and Richard E Grant in a role so short I almost missed it.  Overall the actions okay, the script isn’t as funny as it thinks it is and it’s too long.  So  just like The Hitman’s Bodyguard then.

Best Bit:Salma Hayek’s filthy mouth

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Spenser Confidential
