A bodyguard’s job is to keep his client out of harm’s way. But what happens when a bodyguard is hired to guard one of his enemy – who happens to be one of the most notorious hitmen. Yes, this is the premise of the upcoming action-comedy “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson.
The trailer of the film looks funny with both the actors in their wittiest mode. Both the characters in the movies very much dislike each other but they will have to join forces to defeat a dictator (played by Gary Oldman). The trailer of the film is impressive with glimpses of some intense action-packed scenes as well as some very nice punchlines.
In one scene, Ryan Reynolds’ character refer to Samuel L. Jackson’s character for screaming obscenities by saying, “This guy single-handedly ruined the word ‘Motherfucker”. This is actually a reference to Jackson’s many other movies where he uttered the very word, probably the most number of times than any other actor.
In another scene, while sitting in a car, the hitman threatens, “I will bust a cap in your ass.” The protection agent queries, “Have you ever said, ‘Please?'” to which the hitman’s (obvious) response is, “Please, motherfucker!”
The trailer shows loads of action sequences, including high-speed car chases and many punches thrown. The film also stars Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung, Joaquim De Almeida, Kirsty Mitchell and Richard E. Grant.
