Is it wrong that I actually laughed at this trailer? I just want to shake the hands of whoever decided on the music.
Someone on Youtube commented that it's as though the director just said: "Fuck it. Play yourselves and we'll come up with the story later. I dunno - Sam, you're a hitman and, uh, Ryan you're his bodyguard. There you go. Roll camera!"
I love that fact that, even when he's falling, Sam's bellowing "Motherfuuuuuuuuuuuuuuckerrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"
I'll admit I laughed. And I have enough love for Reynolds and Jackson that I was saying "I'll probably watch when it hits one of the streaming services..."
...and then I glimpsed Hayek and I knew I was in for good.
I wish more experimental high-brow art films looked like this. For some reason I can't stop laughing at (or WITH?!) that trailer.
I kind of like the fact that I'm probably going to watch this and have no real idea what it's about other than who the two main characters are (or at least what their jobs are). The makers knew what they were doing by shaping the trailer purely around how funny these actors are. If a two minute trailer can make me chuckle (Reynolds' stunned reaction to being thrown through the vehicle window at the end gets me every time), I have high hopes for the main feature.
Jeez man. Hitman's Bodyguard was so slight that no one bothered to write anything in its own thread.
I dunno--movie is okay. I mean, it's literally the full-length version of that trailer: Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds riff on each other; shit explodes. The End.
Fairly bad. Reynolds and Jackson screaming at each other gets old quick. A lot of shots of them firing machine guns followed immediately by shots of stuntmen falling over.
All the Salma Hayek scenes are horrid.
