The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Lowdown
Bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L Jackson) are back on another life-threatening mission. The studio bills them as The world’s most lethal odd couple. Here they are still unlicensed and under scrutiny.
Bryce is forced into action by Darius’s even more volatile wife who is the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek). He finds himself driven over the edge by his two most dangerous protectees. Then, to make matter worse, the trio get in over their heads in a global plot. Soon find that they are all that stand between Europe and a vengeful and powerful madman (Antonio Banderas).
Joining in the fun and deadly mayhem is Morgan Freeman as…well, you’ll have to see.
