This week we’ve picked an action-comedy “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” as our movie of the week.
Directed by Patrick Hughes, the movie is a sequel to the 2017 film The Hitman’s Bodyguard and has Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Salma Hayek, and Richard E. Grant reprising their roles, with Frank Grillo, Tom Hopper, Antonio Banderas, and Morgan Freeman joining the cast.
The movie follows a bodyguard Michael Bryce (played by Ryan Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (played by Samuel L. Jackson) who are back on another life-threatening mission. Still unlicensed and under scrutiny, Bryce is forced into action by Darius’s even more volatile wife, the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek). As Bryce is driven over the edge by his two most dangerous protectees, the trio get in over their heads in a global plot and soon find that they are all that stand between Europe and a vengeful and powerful madman (Antonio Banderas). Joining in the fun and deadly mayhem is Morgan Freeman as… well, you’ll have to see.
Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard will release at local cinemas on Friday, June 18.
