Some movies just nail the zeitgeist, you know? It's uncanny the way certain filmmakers have their finger so tightly on the public pulse that, even though their new release began shooting a year earlier and was written well before then, it taps into the popular consciousness on opening weekend to a practically psychic degree. The Hitman's Bodyguard does the opposite. One of the best bits in THB comes when the script tries to pull off one of the worst plot reveals of all time. Like, someone admits to being the reason behind someone else's downfall and I'm not sure why I'm trying to keep it secret. It's the most obvious twist of all time. I'm talking around it here; but when a film be about a bodyguard who loses his business in the opening minutes when a client is assassinated; and an assassin. It ain't hard to put two and two together.
