The whole film feels slightly grubby and low-res, like it's been languishing in private mode on the filmmakers' pre-HD YouTube page since 2008.

"The Htiman's Bodyguard" ... is not a good movie, but, in fairness, it doesn't try to be.

Okay, unless you go in knowing this is set in the same macho fantasy cartoon universe as the likes of the JOHN WICK movies, DEADPOOL or director Patrick Hughes’ testosterone-pumped old school wannabe, loud explosions and clichéd action bore, EXPENDABLES 3, you’re gonna be offended.
