At once reassuringly familiar — even starchy — and yet oddly unsatisfying, “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” is meat-and-potatoes moviemaking at its most fungible. Co-starring Ryan Reynolds as Michael Bryce, a disgraced security expert seeking redemption, and Samuel L.

In the opening shots of “Lady Macbeth,” a bride (Florence Pugh) gazes upward through the mist of her veil, looking lovely, quietly curious and very young. In its final shots, she sits on a mustard-yellow couch in her husband’s home, her position precisely centered, her gaze as unyielding and dark as the heavy wooden furniture in the room. In the world of the film, not very much time has passed, but this young woman has become very, very old.
LOS ANGELES — There’s not a single “you betcha” uttered in Sunday’s premiere of “Get Shorty,” but the distance between FX’s “Fargo” and the Nevada-based dramedy isn’t as far as you might think.
