Boydguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) was once a Triple A-rated executive protection agent, but his credibility took a dive when he lost a client to a sniper. He's coerced by his ex-girlfriend, an Interpol agent, to take on a new client when her team fails at the task. Michael has to deliver the world's most wanted hitman, Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson), to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to testify against a cruel dictator (Gary Oldman). 

There's one major problem — the two quickly realize they can't stand each other. Darius doesn't listen to a word Michael says, which puts them both in danger. But they have to learn to put their differences aside, because they have just 24 hours to get to The Netherland in one piece, or the case is thrown out of court.

  • 5 stars "Best action/comedy movie in years. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson make a great team. This movie is a must see. I can't wait to see it again."
  • 2 stars "Batman there is a bounty out on you! So because Hollywood can't come up with original story-lines any longer, they have to sugar-coat with attempted use of comedy, choreography, and/or CGI. Comedy did keep me going through this. The cursing was a little too much/unnecessary. Expect no crazy twists although I didn't see this one coming, but that's me. A good mix to keep interesting but definitely a 'rental'."
