Towards the end of The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard there is a scene in which Ryan Reynolds repeatedly bangs a man's head against a jukebox aboard a yacht. Every time the bloody head collides with the machine, a different song plays, right up to Ace of Base's “The Sign”. You're lucky, Reynolds tells his unconscious rival as he walks away from him to cause more disaster. I love this song. That single scene perfectly captures the essence of the 2017 sequel to The Hitman’s Bodyguard: too violent, overwhelmingly cute and too self-referential. Fans of the original will understand the joke about The Sign, but the sequel probably won't win over any new fans. The movie suffers from the same thing that many second parts suffer from: the same basic idea, only made bigger. So if the first was to get a witness in Holland to testify about a European war criminal, the second is about saving Europe's very existence.

The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (2022) Full Movie Free Online The film the first had a The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard star like Salma Hayek as a supporting actress, in this one she rises to co-star and has the additions of the greats Antonio Banderas and Morgan Freeman. Director Patrick Hughes returns for this overloaded sequel, but this time he's having trouble balancing violence with his heart. There are too many characters - a Boston Interpol agent and a rival bodyguard, among them - who blend into a deranged 007-style plot with a tendency to become uncomfortably personal. Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson play enemy friends again, and their lines are still full of electricity (and plenty of eschatological humor). Reynolds plays the bodyguard Michael Bryce, a careful and confident professional (boring is always the best is his motto) who is going through a moment of existential doubt, having lost his license. Jackson is Darius Kincaid, a hit man who shoots first and then thinks about the consequences.

If The Hitman’s Bodyguard was a friendly romance between these two, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is a trio thanks to the great energy of Hayek, who steals the screen with her character. She is as deadly, profane, and impulsive as her husband (Your mouth needs an exorcism, Bryce tells her, surprised). But the effect is that this talented trio is unbalanced and awkward; three is definitely a crowd. If there was a chic style in the first film, it disappeared in the second, which sometimes seems cloying in its attempt to recreate the first. In addition to the return of Ace of Base, there are other repeated references: “Hello” by Lionel Richie, a group of nuns, a deadly use of a razor, a cameo by Richard E. Grant, someone thrown out of a car for not wearing a seat belt security and the kidnapping of the main characters with a black bag over their heads. This feels familiar, says Bryce. We know the feeling.
