Bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and hit man Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) are back back together. Still unlicensed, Bryce is forced ito come back into the killer’s orbit by Darius’ wife, con artist Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek). Now, they have to save Europe from a killer virus and the plan to make Greece great again from Aristotle Papdopolous (Antonio Banderas). And just who might Morgan Freeman be?
This film is a sequel to the 2017 film The Hitman’s Bodyguard and features Reynolds, Jackson, Hayek and Richard E. Grant reprising their roles, with Frank Grillo (alwats welcome in more films!), Tom Hopper, Banderas and Freeman joining the guns and comedy party. Around 150 of the crew came back to work on this sequel as well.
Incredibly, while Jackson met Freeman when both were struggling stage actors in New York, this is the first feature film they’ve ever appeared in together!
The story really isn’t as important as the fact that this movie is filled with action setpieces. I’d never seen the original, but was instantly taken in by this fun film. It’s mindless explosions and stunt-filled mayhem, but after the end of a long week of work, isn’t that what you want sometimes?
