  • Despite the charms of its ensemble, The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard fails to protect the audience from repetitive and tired genre tropes.

    Derivative to the point of painful inertia, this is a sequel to a film, The Hitman's Bodyguard, that already felt like a last-gasp regurgitation of stale buddy-cop tropes when it splattered into cinemas four years ago.
