Review: Character conflict sets ‘Hitman’s Bodyguard’ apart


Austin Martinez, Staff Writer

     The Hitman’s Bodyguard is a action film starring Ryan Reynolds as Michael Bryce and Samuel L. Jackson playing Darius Kincaid. Both actors are the main characters in the movie. It’s odd that Kincaid – the hitman – needs Brice to be his bodyguard, even though the two are enemies. The movie was released on Blu-ray on Nov. 21.
     The plot of the story is that one of the movie is Bryce is one of the world’s best security agents and his career is ended when his biggest client was shot and killed. His life spiraled downward, but later he is called up again to protect his enemy and help send an evil dictator to prison.
     This movie is worth watching if you enjoy lots of action packed with violence and guns. This movie is good because other movies join two good characters but director Patrick Hughes got the idea of joining one good character his enemy as a team.
     The music of the film during the fighting scenes made the movie more watchable and helped them not get boring after a while. The special effects with all the blood, explosions, and props also made the movie run extremely smoothly and look great.
     I say if people like action films they have to watch this because it has all the aspects of a great film and a lot of conflict between characters to create more drama.
     This movie is great and I would rate it a 4 out of 5. I recommend it to every action-seeking nerd out there; the quality is amazing and you should watch it right away.
