Professionally, bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) had several times the misfortune to meet the professional killer Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) on the way. Dozens of times the archenemies have tried to kill each other. That they both would eventually be forced to work together, probably would have thought neither of them. But when Kincaid is called to testify before the International Court of Justice against East European dictator Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary Oldman), he is the most-hunted man in the world – and desperately needs a bodyguard.
To defend himself against the dictator’s trigger-happy henchmen, Bryce and Kincaid must set their differences aside. Nevertheless, the two stubborn, of course, find a way to wipe out one another. Your trip is certainly not the beginning of a wonderful friendship. The two have only 24 hours to get alive from England to the Hague Tribunal. They also get unexpected support from Kincaid’s no less notorious wife (Salma Hayek).
