Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Salma Hayek and director Patrick Hughes reunite for the sequel to the 2017 action comedy, The Hitman's Bodyguard. Morgan Freeman and Antonio Banderas round out the all-star cast.

"The world’s most lethal odd couple – bodyguard Michael (Reynolds) and hitman Darius (Jackson) – are back... Still unlicensed and under scrutiny, Michael is forced into action by Darius’s even more volatile wife, the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid (Hayek). The trio get in over their heads in a global plot and soon find that they are all that stands between Europe and a vengeful and powerful madman (Banderas)." (Official synopsis)

This trashy-to-the-max sequel... lunges shamelessly for the lizard brain.

The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard has no interest in a single narrative or even making a modicum of sense.

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard improves on its 2017 predecessor only insofar as it runs 20 minutes shorter.

Its occasional laughs drown in a sea of action-comedy tropes that have been stale for decades. These actors deserve much better, and so do their fans.

So over-the-top it's an insult to the concept of having a top.
