The Hitman’s Bodyguard starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel Jackson has sustained its box office collection perhaps because there is no better challenger. Made on the humble budget of 30 million dollars, film has grossed 39 million dollars and saw a fall of 53% from its first week. Cinema score has given a B+ to the film while rotten tomatoes has certified under 50%. The reviews of this film have been largely negative and Sam L. Jackson has been highly criticized for performing in the same manner as he is been doing for years. Ryan has tried to put the comic element in the film but it is washed out humor considering it is largely based on swears and not elements.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard is that buddy cop movie, where none of the 2 are cops but do the same kind of action like buddy cop films. Sam L. Jackson plays a highly trained assassin who has been body guarded by Ryan, a professional security expert. The only thing exciting about the plot is that they also don’t like each other, which is every other buddy cop film. Annabelle Creation has seen a drop of about 60% and collected 77 million dollars domestically.

Leap has not shown any strength on the box office and collected around 5 million dollars. Leap has got A- on cinema score and 37% on rotten tomatoes, which is making the predictions of audiences taste a little hard. The Hitman’s Bodyguard has only this week to conj-our what it can as some exciting releases are coming up.
