It’s Thursday. For some of us that also means it’s week one left until college resumes.
But the quizzes don’t start until week 6 and the essays do not have to be in until December, so why take a trip to the cinema and avail of some Student Tuesday offers?
The Hitman’s Bodyguard
In this American action film, Triple-A rated Protection Agent, Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) is assigned to protect the world’s deadliest hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) from crazed dictator Vladislav Dukhovic (Gary Oldman). Bryce has to get Darius from the U.K. to Amsterdam to testify against Dukhovic at the International Criminal Court. It’s a riotous roadtrip and the two leads deliver belly aching one liners. Also stars Salma Hayek as Darius’ wife, Sonia.
Based on true events, Tom Cruise plays Barry Seal, a Texas pilot who is hired by the Central Intelligence Agency to fly in to hostile areas and take photos of any illegal activity. Before long, Barry has more money than he can spend and both the federal authorities and the Medellin drug cartel on his tail.
