I watched the sequel to this the other week, and it was kinda fun? So I thought I’d watch the, er, movie before the sequel… Is there a word for a movie that got a sequel later?
“The original one”? That seems lame.
Oh no! This movie does the low-framerate thing when there’s action! I hate that so much!
There’s some scenes here that work? But there’s way too much plot and boring bits between the fun. It’s hard to keep being interested, and I find myself distracted by more interesting things, like perhaps I should dust the top of the door over there…
The fun bits are indeed fun (and it’s clear that the director was most into the car gags (and they’re really good)), but there’s at least an hour of boring stuff in between that could have been cut. So it’s difficult to get excited about this movie.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard. Patrick Hughes. 2017. ⚂
