When audiences last saw Bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds); he was dealing with the aftermath of helping save the day and his long-time nemesis Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson). Taking place shortly after the events of the first film; “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” finds Michael trying therapy after he has a reoccurring and disturbing dream following the loss of his AAA Bodyguard license.
His Therapist is eager to be rid of him and his multiple neuroses and suggests that he give up guns and the life he knew and find himself and his future self while relaxing in Italy.
Michael accepts this and becomes at peace and is so clueless that while lounging with his noise-canceling headphones by the pool; he is oblivious to a brutal and protracted gunfight around him.
In no time; Sonia Kincaid (Selma Hayek); whisks Michael away and fills his ears with a string of highly unfiltered comments and rants. It seems that Darius has been kidnapped and asked her to get Michael to help him out. Michael is unwilling to use guns and finds the to say unstable would be kind; Sonia to be way too unhinged for his new lease on life and that Kincaid wanted “Anyone but Michael” when he asked his wife to get help.
The trio is forced to work with one another by Interpol as it seems there is a plot underway to destroy the European Union and Michael, Sonia, and Darius have no choice but to do the bidding of the Government or face charges.
The fact that Sonia is desperate for a baby and a Honeymoon only complicates matters further as they recklessly head to their assigned mission and find that a very wealthy individual has nefarious plans and has hired elite professionals to ensure all opposition to his plans are removed.
What follows is a madcap, violent, and dysfunctional romp as the trio battle the bad guys, the law, their own abundant issues, and each other to try to save the day and clear their slate with the authorities.
While the film is not going to win many points for an original, complex, or overly complex plot; the setup and narrative serve to give the film a showcase for its strengths which are the three leads. Reynolds and Jackson work very well with one another and Hayek often steals her scenes with her compassionate yet teetering on the unhinged portrayal of Sonia.
The jokes fly as frequently as the blood and the bullets and there is some great scenery as well which frames the action and story perfectly. There are also some appearances by some very good actors in significant supporting roles which I will not spoil but suffice it to say they really support the main cast well.
I summarized my reaction to the local Publicist as follows…” Not much plot, cartoony bad guys; but the great cast, action, and humor”. While the film will not set a new standard in the Action Comedy category, it is still an enjoyable enough romp despite the flaws and it would be great to see the trio back for another madcap adventure down the line.
3.5 stars out of 5
I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard. Every time Ryan, Samuel, and Salma open their mouth it becomes a big laugh moment. The trio is just perfect and the performance of Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson, and Salma Hayek was so so so good.
The story wasn’t great as the first movie but it was hell funny and full of bloody action sequences. There was some crazy car chasing scenes and big explosions. The VFX and the Cinematography were excellent.
I like the addition of Morgan Freeman, Frank Grillo, my favorite, and Antonio Banderas. They all added more fun to this movie. I don’t understand the hate for this movie. It was an interesting and entertaining movie from start to end. It’s full of continuous action and jokes. I just loved it.
Excuzzz me, what’s the bad guy’s plan again?
Banderas is now Greek. And wants to wreck havoc in the EU. Although the movie was (at times) fun and it’s cool to see Samuel Jackson and Morgan Freeman in the same film, a star-packed cast can’t get this film rated above 6. And 6 is already too much.
Where to start…Pace is inconsistent and compared to the 1st film there are some really boring parts. Action is focused on bang-bang and car chase, coupled with some extreme shouting from Salma Hayek. Acting is ok (if you can stand Hayek).
Storyline is outdated and exaggerated but keeps the European vibe of the first film, which is consistent.
Comedy is prevalent throughout the film and there are some good moments.
And of course…Antonio Banderas: He plays the villain, Greek billionaire Aristotle Papadopoulos, but he doesn’t take the role too seriously and he still is the one and only Antonio Banderas, with the one and only Spanish accent we all know. He delivers some funny one-liners mixed with a few popular Greek words and almost looks like a villain BUT with a really weak and bad plan.
Comedian Ryan Reynolds does well in comedy.
Frank Grillo is always a nice addition, even though his role in the film is not essential.
Nice cinematography, photography and great Italian landscapes. And some truly funny moments.
Maybe since they’re chasing a Greek, they should have done more shots in Greece, so it could have been more relevant. Because in the overall story the connection with Italy seemed rather weak.
To conclude, there’s a few reasons to watch this film. But it’s not as good as the previous one, so be prepared.
I personally enjoyed it but it’s no more than a 6/10.
Zany and Over the Top
I seem to be going on a bit of a Ryan Reynolds bender here because this is the third Reynolds film that I have watched in a week. Maybe I should cap it off with Deadpool since I’ve been doing a bit of that. Anyway, I ended up going and seeing this because the first one was pretty good. You could say that it was one of those old school over the top action films, and that is seriously something that has been missing of late. Well, all I can say is that this film certainly didn’t disappoint. In fact the entire cinema was cracking up in laughter (all five other people mind you – thanks CoVid).
This is basically the sequel to The Hitman’s Bodyguard, and as I have suggested, it is pretty much as zany as the first, except that they decide to have Darius’ Kinkaid’s wife play a much bigger role, and once again they don’t disappoint. Like a lot of these films they have this nasty bad guy that is planning on destroying the world, or at least destroying Europe, and all there happens to be is a group of misfits – a hitman, a con-artist, and a bodyguard – as they keep on reminding us, that stand in the way to total destruction.
Like, as I mentioned, this film was hilarious, especially when you find out why Sonia Kinkaid is caught up in a gunfight when she is first introduced, and she doesn’t let go for the rest of the film. In fact, Reynolds, Hayek, and Jackson all just seem to bounce off of each other perfectly, and I guess that is one of the reasons that this is such a great film. Sure, it isn’t original, and it certainly won’t be winning any awards, but it is one of those films that is such a great ride.
Mind you, once again the French have outdone themselves with the title, because it happens to be ‘Le Femme de Mon Meilleur Ennemi’, which basically translates to ‘My Best Enemy’s Wife’. Yeah, they do seem to be able to come up with much better titles than the English version, but I guess that’s the way it goes.
Still, if you like action, and you like a lot of laughs, I definitely recommend giving this film a go.
