The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard starts with bodyguard Michael Bryce ‘graduating’ from counselling and attempting to go on a nice relaxing Mediterranean holiday.
However, while relaxing assassin Darius’s wife Sonia (Salma Hayek) crashes the beach. She’s been sent by her partner Darius Kincaid (Samuel L Jackson) to rescue him.
Michael remains unlicensed and on his therapist’s advice refuses to touch a gun. He finds himself an unwilling part of the trio who then go on a road trip to stop Europe’s destruction.
A highlight of the film is seeing the beautiful scenery and Morgan Freeman. But it’s not the warmest welcome home visit.

About Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard
The world’s most lethal odd couple – bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) – are back on another life-threatening mission. Still unlicensed and under scrutiny, Bryce is forced into action by Darius’s even more volatile wife, the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek). As Bryce is driven over the edge by his two most dangerous protectees, the trio get in over their heads in a global plot and 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.
