THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD is an action comedy in which an elite bodyguard is forced to accompany a fugitive killer on a trip across Europe, pursued by rival criminals and authorities.

Language

There is strong language throughout, including 'f**k' and 'motherf**ker', as well as milder bad language such as 'bitch' and 'whore'.

Violence

There is strong bloody violence throughout, including a woman stabbing men with a broken glass bottle, a man's head being nailgunned, and a scene in which a man is tortured with electrical leads.

A woman says that a man told her 'what he likes to do with his wife's ass', and that she replied: "That is a disgusting place for a child's toy".

A man takes some pills and is asked whether he's had too much cocaine or not enough.
