Netflix has a new popular movie rising up its ranks – The Man from Toronto. The movie will remind you of other buddy flicks that Hollywood has churned out in recent years like Central Intelligence, Hitman’s Bodyguard and the list goes on. The wacky action comedy teams up Woody Harrelson and Kevin Hart in the lead roles. Patrick Hughes directs the movie with a paper-thin plot but incredible chemistry between the two leads. But does that make it a watchable flick? Find out what the fans are saying.
The Man from Toronto on Netflix plot
Teddy (Hart) wants to become an online fitness guru, but of course, nobody watches his low-budget, uninspiring content. He is married to Lori and plans to take her on a vacation for her birthday to Onancock, Virginia. There, he lands at Airbnb, where he’s mistaken for an assassin simply called The Man From Toronto. Shortly after, the real assassin (Harrelson) shows up as well and of course, hilarity ensues.
Fans’ reactions to the Kevin Hart movie
Some viewers found The Man From Toronto bearable while others found it just a waste of time.

The Man from Toronto was terrible. And Kevin…Kevin Hart loves playing the same role: a naive, simpleminded, incompetent, goofy man with a gorgeous, successful, loving wife 😂😂

is it just me or is "The man from Toronto" one of the worst films ever made? What a stinker. I mean who the hell read this script and said "let's produce this film" – do you know how hard it is to raise money to produce a film? it's hard. I can't believe this shit gets made.

The Man From Toronto is an extremely silly & wacky action/comedy with Kevin Hart doing his usual shtick and Woody being Woody, for those exact reasons at some point during the film I started to get on board with it, if you turn off your brain it's ridiculous fun. #ManFromToronto pic.twitter.com/fBSRLrGxDa

What are critics’ saying?
Whereas, Firstpost writes: “The Man From Toronto draws reason to create a plot from an identity goof-up that lets an idiot become an assassin — that too with the official nod of the US government. Once you have glossed over the lunacy of the idea, the film is your assembly-line action-comedy that taps into the contrasting image traits of Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson in a bid to set up odd-couple chemistry, which gives the screenplay its best bits through a runtime of around 110 minutes.”
