Did I just title this film review with song lyrics from The Bodyguard soundtrack?

Yes, yes I did.

In fact, The Hitman’s Bodyguard isn’t so different from that 90s film starring Kevin Costner and the late Whitney Houston, barring the absence of Ms Houston’s beautiful vocals (you’re still missed, Whitney). The Hitman’s Bodyguard takes the idea of a bodyguard providing protection to a reluctant well-known figure and pairs it with an irreverent humor that only Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds could deliver with a straight face.
