WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Michael Bryce (Reynolds), the world’s top protection agent, is assigned a new client: notorious hitman Darius Kincaid (Jackson), who is due to testify at the trial of murderous dictator Vladislav Dukhovich (Oldman). As Bryce begrudgingly transports Kincaid from London to The Hague, Dukhovich sends countless threats towards them, which force the two enemies to put aside their differences if they are to make it to the trial on time…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

With Ryan Reynolds experiencing a career resurgence post-Deadpool, and Samuel L. Jackson being Samuel L. Motherf**kin’ Jackson, both are primed for this adventurous action-comedy that sees them working off of each other in the best possible ways.
