The Hitman’s Bodyguard – Bromance or Romance Action-Movie?

The world’s top protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hitmen (Samuel L. Jackson). The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous and hilarious adventure from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades and a merciless Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldman) who is out for blood. Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson’s equally notorious wife.

Salma Hayek – A Bad Muthaf*cker ?

What’s more attractive – a ‘Bromance’ between Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in The Hitman’s Bodyguard or a romance between Jackson and Salma Hayek? Jackson’s character was practically written for him – the badass muthaf*cker that he always plays. Who could be a love match for that? According to Hayek, her character Sonia Kincaid is “pretty tough” and angry at her husband. Yet, they are madly in love. Hayek believes that her character is the toughest person in the movie.

“Everything that happens, happens because Darius is so in love with me that he does everything and everything that everyone does because of him is to prove his love to her. So, it’s really a love story. They have the most amazing, passionate, crazy, mad relationship. Even in the few moments where you get to see it, it’s insane, romantic, and full of fire in every way. You definitely get a glimpse to the fact that this woman is his match,” Salma Hayek on her character Sonia Kincaid and her character’s husband Darius Kincaid.

“One special trait of my character is that she has the dirtiest mouth,” Hayek later adds just in case you were wondering. Would we expect anything less from the woman who steals the heart of a Samuel L. Jackson character? Apparently, their love story is not the typical love story that you see in an action movie.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard – In theaters August 18. It stars Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung, Joaquim De Almeida, Kirsty Mitchell, with Richard E. Grant.
