With the Marvel Cinematic Universe's 'Thor: Ragnarok' on the horizon and the sequel to the critically-acclaimed, R-rated 2016 release 'Deadpool' in the works, talk is of course turning towards whether or not the heroes from each could one day find each other in a collaborative film.

It's something that's been discussed a lot in the past, but usually, many wonder whether Deadpool will ever meet the members of the X-Men. Now that Marvel and Sony Pictures Entertainment have worked together on 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' however, it looks a lot more likely now than it ever has done before.

The Hitman's Bodyguard Review

Very Good

It really doesn't matter that this movie is utterly ridiculous, because the central pairing of Ryan Reynolds with Samuel L. Jackson is so entertaining that we never want it to end. Director Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3) keeps the action so insanely energetic that we're not quite sure where to look. But at the centre of the mayhem Reynolds and Jackson are having so much fun that we can't wipe the smiles off our faces.

Reynolds plays London-based security expert Michael, whose high-flying career was derailed two years ago and stubbornly refuses to get back on track. Then his Interpol agent ex-girlfriend Amelia (Elodie Yung) offers him a job escorting the ruthless assassin Darius (Jackson) from his British prison cell to The Hague, where he's needed to testify against murderous Belarusian warlord Dukhovich (Gary Oldman) in a war crimes trial. So far, Dukhovich's militia has made sure no witnesses have made it to the courtroom, so Michael has his work cut out for him. Meanwhile, Darius is trying to get in touch with his wife Sonia (Salma Hayek), who is in prison in Amsterdam and lovingly calls him an unkillable cockroach.

All of this unfolds at a breakneck pace, with a flurry of hyper-violent shootouts, chases and fistfights. Cars fly in every direction as passers-by run for cover, bullets fly in every direction, and pretty much everything on-screen explodes into a huge ball of flames. It's so cartoonish that it's impossible to take even remotely seriously. So we just laugh along with Ryan and Jackson, as they bicker and fight, then bond over flashbacks into their amusingly messy love lives. Both are swaggering alpha-males who don't take instructions from anyone, so their interaction is feisty and funny. The supporting cast of glowering villains and secretive agents barely gets a chance to register, although Hayek nearly walks off with the movie in a riotously scene-stealing turn that leaves us wanting her to get a film of her own.

The Hitmans Bodyguard Trailer


An AAA-rated executive protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is charged with protecting the most wanted hitman (Samuel L. Jackson) in the world. That might seem like a crazy concept - I mean, why would an assassin need a bodyguard? - but as it turns out, he's quite the liability. He's impulsive, volatile and damn rude, and very likely to get them both killed. Unfortunately, there's nothing this protection agent can do about his new client; he has to work with him and they must put aside their differences if they want to defeat a ruthless Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldman) and testify at the International Court of Justice. It's a 24 hour rollercoaster ride for these completely contrasting personalities, complete with death defying car chases and reckless escape stunts.

Jake Gyllenhaal Ryan Reynolds

The film reunites Reynolds with Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. And Gyllenhaal says that the script left him "legitimately terrified". But both actors say they were drawn to the project because it was just a big, fun movie. "It felt like blasphemy that we were having such a good time," Gyllenhaal laughs. "It literally felt wrong that you could have so much fun making a movie that is as terrifying as it is."
