The Hitman’s Bodyguard

One must acknowledge the audacity The Lodgers of writer Tom O’Connor in penning a story about a hitman and a bodyguard, and positing it as putting a dictator behind bars. That dictator is the president of Belarus, a country that, the film helpfully tells us, for no reason at all, is “ex-Soviet Union”. So, you know, it has the kind of president who goes about killing rivals/enemies/dissidents with everything from mysterious poisons to gigantic trucks.

Clearly, O’Connor has been reading up ex-USSR history.  Beauty and the Beast But poisons make for a film much too delicate for this one’s taste, particularly when the budget allows trucks to wreak the mayhem.

Which is why, when a crucial witness against that Belarusian president (played by Gary Oldman), who is a hitman with a conscience (Jackson), needs to travel from Manchester to the Hague to be brought before the International Criminal Court, the bodyguard chosen to escort him (Reynolds) decides to drive all of the 470-plus km Gods of Egypt (roads, rails, waters). No helicopter etc.
