    The lighting comment. Jesus you could not be more right. It’s a cool effect for “dream sequences” or “flashbacks” in most movies. But fuck me they used it all willy nilly and at random in this movie. Each time I saw it I thought “is something important going on here that I should notice” but no. It’s just a pointless random use of a kinda overdone effect that honestly should die already.

    When Salma Hayek was in that bar fight it remind me of the scene where you first meet Catalina in San Andreas (GTA). ...Hmm?

    Not an a grade movie but still entertaining with mostly funny lines from Jackson and Reynolds. Worth watching on Blu-ray.

    I couldn't watch past the first 20 minutes, really one of the worst movies I've seen in a very very long time. I can't say the entire movie is bad, but the first 20 minutes are absolutely unwatchable.

    Your reviews give me a headache . I take it the age demographic you are aiming for is between 10-18. Chris Stuckman does a much better job.

    Really entertaining. But a few of the emotional moments could have been done with better humour. Also the tone is sometimes off.

    Did anyone see Wolverine’s jacket in the movie? It was on the scene where Ryan knocks out a guy on the bridge when Sam was delivering the tulips.

    Didn't laugh once this whole movie. Not funny, terribly unrealistic, and filled with plot-holes and sub-par cliched action sequences. Two thumbs down for me, but hey... To each their own!

    I agree. I think Ryan Reynolds is being too marketed as Deadpool. We often can’t see the serious side of him which makes his movies seriously lack variety

    I was really excited after seeing the trailer. Then I saw this review and thought, "Why didn't I ever see that?!?" Then I remembered: I did see it. Meh.

    I really liked this movie. The choice of actors was that they had actors that played their stereotypical roles. I got it that they chose Gary Oldman, because he plays very effective evil characters and he got to play his slavic characterization from AIRFORCE ONE and it was no surprise who the Interpol leak was, because that actor always plays the bad guy. I love Samuel L Jackson and I love Ryan Reynolds. When they play their usual roles, it is a hoot. For instance Samuel L Jackson in SNAKES ON THE PLANE and Ryan Reynolds in DEADPOOL. This was an action comedy, pure and simple. I was laughing from beginning to end when they were on the screen. This movie was made for people like me and I appreciate it. You were correct about the movie being too long. When they were in Amsterdam, I got tired of laughing, as they did the motorboat chase sequence, but I got my second wind from when he delivered the flowers. My son and I both agree that you were a bit harsh on this movie. We both really enjoyed this movie. We can't be too wrong, can we -- we both enjoy watching Jeremy Jahn reviews on TVclip?

    People are saying he was too hard on the movie and he wasn't. If you just want to laugh for 2 hours then watch this movie. Other than that I wouldn't recommend it.

    What is Jeremy Jahns anymore? This video sucks!!! You are always complaining. WTF? How can you say that anyone could have played Gary Oldman. The movie was good. Gary's performace was AMAZING he is sooo underrated. Thumbs down. I've been a subscriber to this channel for around 4 years?... I am really considering unsubbing, all you do is complain! I mean, you should, when needed. But what's good is good! Gary Oldman was great! Stupid video Jeremy

    I don't mind people who like the movie but the defense for it is all the same. "It's not meant to be a cinematic masterpiece. It's not supposed to be an Oscar-worthy film."... Uhhh nobody in the entirety of planet Earth had those kinds of expectations. My expectations for this movie were already really really low and even then, the movie didn't meet those expectations. I was bored out of my mind with the film and I was getting annoyed with the interaction between Jackson and Reynolds. Their chemistry was there but the writing went overboard with their constant arguments. I'm a guy who loves Rush Hour, Lethal Weapon, Bad Boys, and Blues Brothers (buddy action movies that were "not meant to be Oscar nominees") and I still disliked this piece of shit.

    Yeah. I seen this yesterday and barely remember it. Shame. Trailer 1 is still awesome though.

  • CrimsonCeltCherokee

    I really liked this movie. Was it amazing? No. Was there a lot of problems with it? Yes. But overall I thought it was a blast. I'd buy it on DVD or blu-ray, but I'd probably would only watch it when I had a White Russian in my hand. Make of that as you will.

  • Justin Rackler
    Justin Rackler Year ago

    To me it was like a Pulp fiction 2 if you think of it like that it's interesting like Sam like Samuel Jackson's character in Pulp Fiction was spittin some biblical literature and wow inside of the hitman's Bodyguard you also did the same thing so what I'm saying it is there's a lot of similarities like between how like just explaining Samuel L Jackson character.

  • Aaron Tveit
    Aaron Tveit Year ago

    The comedic effect from this movie worked. Ryan and samuel were amazing. But, i felt like this movie was too cliche. i mean, from the get go i could figure out the guy who killed the chinese guy was samuel and was supposed to serve as a plot twist to the movie. it didnt work. and the whole, one of them does something stupid, fights and gets back together, samuel helping with love life was super cliche for me. Not the greatest movie, and i would much prefer Spy over this. 5.5/10

    I was so pleasantly surprised, *enjoyed every single second of it* from what I remember... I guess I got ahold of it at the very right time for me, with the perfect mindset. 7.6/10 for me. I wish that same ideal allignment of stars (factors) upon any of you who are about to watch it!

  • Ototoxic

    I really enjoyed this movie. Samuel L Jackson, Ryan Rennolds, and Garry Oldman played their characters perfectly (and of course Garry Oldman was easily able to pull off a character of a completely different nationality). However, there's something that really, really bothered me throughout this entire movie; the cgi. The explosions didn't really look like they belonged in the space, with the fire and smoke simulations looking like they weren't at the right scale and weren't lit properly, and debris looked like it was floating a couple inches above the ground. A few scenes looked like they were re-shot with the actors in front of a greenscreen, then the original background slapped on and hardly blended to the original footage. The fake crowds were really obvious, I know it takes time and money, but seriously, a crowd needs more than five animations for the agents. Over all, the movie was a great time, but the cgi pulled me out of the experience more than a few times.

  • Gordon Lee

    Jeremy critiqued this movie a bit too harshly for what it was. Overall, I found it to be entertaining, and even had me laughing out loud at several different moments. I would watch this movie and decide for yourself if you like it. It's not an Oscar-nominee worthy film, but it'll be a fun two hours of unadulterated humor and action (even if you forget about it in a couple days, like Jeremy claims).

    • jtappia
      jtappia Year ago

      Gordon Lee could not agree more! Jeremy sucks! Lets say the movie was not good. He said that Gary's performance could have been played by anyone! Anyone?! Yeah right, Gary Oldman deserves an oscar in this movie!

  • Tom Zhao
    Tom Zhao Year ago

    This is one of those movies where you just turn off your brain and enjoy it. It's a comedy movie first and foremost, and I believe they stuck to that the entire way through. The movie never tries to take itself seriously, and all the action serves to enhance the humor. I would actually say that this movie is very focused in its tone. Also where was the movie convoluted? It's just 2 people trying to get from point A to point B. There weren't really any huge plot twists in this movie.

    I think one needs to appreciate and judge this movie for what it is. Of course it isn't going to be some original, crazy in-depth plot film. With that being said it'll have some satisfying action, and a lot of comical times. I usually don't laugh a lot at movie humor. Like it can be any type; I usually just don't laugh. This made me genuinely LOL at times. So if you're just looking for a good time, I would go see it. If you're looking for the next action classic, ehhh maybe not.
