Very disappointed.

The original was a very watchable comedy / action film, this however is nothing like the original. It has a vague plot and seems to try and cram as much foul language as possible into each scene. The action sequences must have cost thousands to produce, it's a shame the rest of the film is not worth watching. Probably the worst £4.49 rental I've spent in a long while.

Didn't finish pure cringe
Verified purchase
Think I lasted 30 mins. It's just silly. Made the first film look sensible. Its like when your fav 80s band get back together n start writing music again. The output is quite formulaic, it's a product recognisable as them but the input wasn't authentic. Like painting by numbers. They know how to write a good song, they know the structure and some power chords. But no passion, imagination or authentic desire to get a unique challenging song out. Ryan is still the man tho. He's on my list of people I can leave my wife for. I'd want him to know that especially if he reads this n gets upset. It's a happy ending

Absolute rubbish
Verified purchase
Watched this sequel as the first film was excellent. Funny, entertaining with a lot of action. So, on the basis of that, we decided that we would be happy to watch the second film. Oh, how wrong could we be. Salma Hayek's acting is appalling. I'm assuming that the constant display of her ample chest was to distract from the awful acting. So disappointed, was really looking forward to watching it, but abandoned it after about 20-25 mins as obviously was not going to improve & was starting to get bored with it all. Ryan Reynolds & Samuel L Jackson, were not at fault at all, just replace the wife next time please!!!.

I enjoyed it
Verified purchase
I've forgotten the first one, to be honest, I only remembered that I quite enjoyed it...and I quite enjoyed this one too but will probably have forgotten it by the day after tomorrow. I laughed out loud plenty of times, lots of swearing and jokes. I feel like maybe the first one had a bit more depth in terms of the story but this was fine as some light entertainment...lots of negative reviews so maybe the first one was a lot better and I've just forgotten but I didn't have high expectations going in, I just put it on while I was working and liked it enough to 4 star review it.....

Entertaining - Not As Good As the First One
Verified purchase
Often a film comes out that nails all the marks and the Hitman's Bodyguard did that. It was fun, violent and fantastically entertaining. And successful enough to spawn a sequel that is fine but fundamentally isn't nearly as good as the first one.

I think that the reason for this is that it tries too hard. Really. The first film was an actioner that had a fair sprinkling of humour that balanced things perfectly. Reynolds played himself as usual and Jackson played himself. It was a brilliant mix.

Unfortunately in this, the sequel more actors and actress' have been added and it's diluted both Jackson and Reynolds to the detriment of the film.

Reynolds has been relegated to the sad, slightly useless white male role now de rigueur in most films and Jackson plays sidekick to Hayek. Morgan Freeman is chucked in for a bit of deus ex-machina later on.

The problem with adding these extra characters is that they dilute the ability of the two supposed stars to shine. Hayek is without a doubt pleasant to look at but she brings little to this film and frankly her acting isn't brilliant. For one her accent is so heavy in this film sometimes it's hard to understand what she is saying.

Freeman plays Freeman.

The first film is a smart sharp action comedy. This is a less than sharp comedy with a bit of action.

First cut is the deepest
Verified purchase
So I watched this on a plane and loved it. I would have given it more than 5 stars easily. For the person who cut 12 minutes out in this version what was you thinking. You’ve ruined it. If I was your father I wouldn’t let you touch a pair of scissors let alone anything else sharpe. Go to your room and think hard on what you have done. And for the person who hired him….. Your fired!!

It's rubbish, awful. Just bad.
Verified purchase
Successful 1st film, debatable. Big names, check. Swearing, check. Big explosions, check. This film was just horrible. One big nasty cliche. Terrible 'plot', unlikeable 'characters', awful writing and even worse acting. If I could give it zero I would. An absolute stinker. I might have appreciated it more if it was called Another Dumb Action Comedy, except that it was not funny and the only action seemed to be happening in Salma Hayek's over exposed cleavage. Is Samuel L Jackson actually an actor? I guess you could claim his best acting is in continually convincing directors to pay him for saying the F word. Salma, your gorgeous and so much better than this. Morgan, you have done some brilliant work. Please stop demeaning yourself with these cameo roles for money. I am losing respect for you.

Sadly it's Getting old...
Verified purchase
Just like the John Wick franchise and so many others the producers think they're onto a good thing based on an amazing start off the blocks. The sad reality is that while the 1st lap was bloody brilliant, the format starts to loose its breath on the second, and by the third it's on its knees gasping for breath.

This is no less true for blah blah blah bodyguard - the jokes are reconstituted, the premise tired and the characters become a parody of themselves. There are a few rib tickling scenes, and a few brilliant Easter eggs shamelessly shoved in your face.... but they're soon beaten down by a predictable plot and exasperating cliché moments.
