What would a Deadpool and Nick Fury team-up movie look like? Well, the blueprint to that movie is this week’s movie deal of the week. The Hitman’s Bodyguard is currently available on to own from £5.99. Check out the trailer here:
The Hitman’s Body Guard stars Ryan Reynolds as a once high profile bodyguard now down on his luck tasked with protecting the most notorious hitman (Samuel L. Jackson) the world has ever seen. The mission, get from England to The Hague so Samuel L. Jackson can testify against a sadistic Belarusian dictator (Gary Oldman). Expletive-laden dialogue along with a higher than expected bodycount ensue as the two must work together in order to bring justice in this movie that takes the buddy cop formula and creates its own popcorn action movie with a solid soundtrack to boot. The sequel has already begun filming so this is a great chance to start at the beginning.
The world’s top protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hit men (Samuel L. Jackson). The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years, and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous and hilarious adventure from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades, and a merciless Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldman) who is out for blood. Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson’s equally notorious wife.
