Movie Diary 8/15/2017

The Hitman’s Bodyguard (Patrick Hughes, 2017). The standard touches of the cynical action flick, but served up with no small amount of zest – there are no dull, obligatory scenes, which is a rarity for a movie that requires a certain amount of exposition and connective material. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson do the bantering and the battering. Not bad for late summer. (full review 8/18)
