With his reputation in tatters after the painfully unsuccessful delivery of a distinguished Japanese client, the former triple-A protection agent, Michael Bryce, is now reduced to a mere second-class bodyguard for hire, two years after the disgraceful incident. Under those circumstances, Bryce would do anything to prove his worth, and, before long, he accepts an offer from Interpol to escort the international assassin, Darius Kincaid, from Manchester to the Hague. The task seems simple: Bryce needs to transport him from point A to point B; nevertheless, the trip to the Netherlands is long and hazardous, and Kincaid--as the only one with the guts and enough hard evidence to testify against a tyrannical Belarusian dictator--is an obvious target. Undoubtedly, it's a tough job, as the mismatched duo will have to put aside their grudges, and race against the clock in a non-stop concerto for bullets. Can the hitman's bodyguard carry through the most important mission in his career?Written by
The scenery in The Hague shows no resemblance with the real city. In fact, just some helicopter shots are showing the real city. In the last scene, the climax on the roof, government buildings situated in The Hague were added later in post-production. See more »
The Dutch plates on the semi that the Porsche crashes into are incorrect. The combination is not valid for that class of vehicle. Plus isn't an extant combination for any other vehicle. See more »
Man on Phone:
Good morning, Mr. Bryce. I trust the pickup ran smoothly.
Hand-off was clean. No stops till the exit point.

Just watched a sneak preview of The Hit-man's Bodyguard. I had high expectations given the cast of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson. The movie exceeded these expectations! Over the top comedy and action -- best combination since Deadpool last year. Definitely worth watching!
I'm a long-time IMDb user, but this movie was so good, I felt I needed to get an IMDb login so I could review it!
Top movie I've seen this year, edging out Baby Driver!
