When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman's journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the United States. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.
A man believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and has dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when he meets a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can't stand idly by - he has to help her.
With his reputation in tatters after a painfully unsuccessful delivery of a distinguished Japanese client, former triple-A executive protection agent, Michael Bryce, two long years after the disgraceful incident, is now reduced to a mere second-class bodyguard for hire. Under those circumstances, Bryce would do anything to prove his worth once again, and as a result, it won't be long before he accepts an offer from Interpol to escort the renowned international assassin Darius Kincaid from Manchester to the Hague. The task seems simple: Bryce only needs to transport the contract killer from point A to point B, nevertheless, Kincaid, as the only one with the guts and enough hard evidence to testify against a tyrannical Belarusian dictator, is an obvious target, while the trip to the Netherlands is long and hazardous. Without a doubt, this is a race against the clock as the mismatched duo will have to put aside their grudges, in a non-stop concerto for bullets.Written by
The script from the film was among the top 2011 Black List of unproduced screenplays. While originally intended as a drama, the script underwent a frantic two-week re-write to be remade into a comedy several weeks prior to filming. On March 9, 2016, it was reported that Jeff Wadlow had exited the film and Patrick Hughes signed on to direct. See more »
When Darius is explaining to Michael that he is the one that killed Kurosawa, he tells Michael that it was a 300 meter shot. However in the flashback to Darius spotting Kurosawa, the rangefinder he looks through shows a distance of 803 yards. This converts to a little over 734 meters. Also the window that he shoots through, is more comparable in size to a D cup. Still a very impressive shot. 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!
