Complete Storyline and information about Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard
Four years have passed since Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) had the dubious honor of becoming Darius Kincaid’s (Samuel L. Jackson) Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard. This mission has left its mark. Not even from Bryce’s dreams can Darius stay away. So the bodyguard takes some time off with some peace and quiet and even thinks about hanging up his job altogether.
The dream of a sabbatical goes up in smoke (and shootings and explosions) pretty quickly, though, when Darius’ spouse enters Bryce’s life: notorious con artist Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek). The hitman’s unpredictable wife needs his help after a dangerous mob boss (Antonio Banderas) kidnaps the hitman.
However, protecting Darius, Europe and the entire world from a maniac turns out to be quite a challenge full of life-threatening situations – especially when you’ve actually resolved to swear off murder, violence and bloodshed.
