In the first film, we introduced to the former triple-A protection agent, Michael Bryce. Reduced to a for-hire bodyguard after a mishap on a job. He is desperate to take on an assignment and prove his capabilities and skill. Hoping to do this, he accepts a job assignment from Interpol, which tasks him to transport the famous international assassin, Darius Kincaid, from Manchester to the Hague. Although seemingly straightforward, the trip is not only long but proves to be extremely dangerous since Kincaid is on his way to testify against a Belarusian dictator.
This makes both of them target murder. Couple with a bunch of differences and petty fights between the two and this race against time and death is an entertaining couple of hours of action and comedy.
How Does the New Movie Pan Out?
In the new trailer, it is clear that Michael is once again assigned a job that will keep him on his toes. Even though his therapist has asked him to leave the bodyguard position in his past. Despite being unlicensed and still under several keen eyes and criticism. Bryce takes up the job to not only protect Darius but his more dangerous and unpredictable wife. And, the infamous con artist is known internationally as Sonia Kincaid. On this mission, Bryce discovers that the risks are far more than before.

Before they know it, the three and their skills are all that can protect Europe from the wrath of a powerful madman (Antonio Banderas)who is seeking revenge. Once Michael and his charges become the new targets of this influential madman, there is no looking back.
