Top Gun!

Take one washed up body guard and a hardened criminal and there’s no telling how they will react. Go with the flow As the Hitman’s Bodyguard aims both at your funny bone and your need for speed and mayhem. Feel the ebb and flow of two opposites on some sort of mission on this wacky adventure from VVS Films. Just settle in for a wild escapade at Cineplex Cinemas around B.C.

Once upon a time high flying protector extraordinaire Michael Bruce was the go to guy when it came to safeguarding people of note. Not so any more. Likeable Vancouver born Ryan Reynolds (The Woman in Gold) connects with audiences as a disgraced bodyguard given a new lease on life when he’s assigned to protect a mobster.

Gun for hire Darius Kincaid is a man wanted by all sorts of people. Give it up to Samuel L. Jackson for taking the bull by the horns and portraying this one of a kind hoodlum with just the right degree of flamboyance and fun. European peace and harmony is put to the test when a simple escort assignment comes undone. Chases, fights and double entendres galore highlight this action romp through Europe. Two leading men at perhaps the top of their game turn The Hitman’s Bodyguard into a fun theatre outing. One for one and all for all as they say.
