Plot summary

What is The Hitman's Bodyguard movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Hitman's Bodyguard" movie plot summary.

Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) lives a stylish life as an elite UK-based private bodyguard, until client Takashi Kurosawa (Tsuwayuki Saotome) is assassinated on his watch. Two years later, the disgraced Bryce ekes out a living protecting drug-addicted corporate executives in London.
Meanwhile, Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary Oldman), the ruthless dictator of Belarus, is on trial for crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court. Unable to secure solid evidence or testimony against Dukhovich, the prosecution's last hope is notorious incarcerated hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson), who agrees to testify against Dukhovich in exchange for the release of his wife Sonia (Salma Hayek) from prison. Led by Interpol Agent Roussel (Alan McKenna), an armed convoy escorting Kincaid then departs.
With the aid of treacherous Interpol Assistant Director Jean Foucher (Joaquim de Almeida), Dukhovich's men successfully ambush the convoy and kill almost all of the security team. Kincaid manages to eliminate the attackers but their vehicle is destroyed. Having survived the attack, Agent Roussel takes Kincaid to an Interpol safehouse. Realizing that the agency cannot be entrusted with the mission due to possibility of a leak, she employs the help of Bryce to escort and protect Kincaid on the way to The Hague. The two hitchhike to a ferry to Amsterdam, where Sonia is being held. Kincaid reveals that he killed Kurosawa, having spotted him by chance while on another job. As Bryce bemoans his failures at a beer stand, Dukhovich's men attack Kincaid. Bryce has a change of heart and helps Kincaid escape, but is captured. As Dukhovich's men torture him, Kincaid arrives and rescues Bryce. After settling their differences, the two battle their way to The Hague, arriving just in time for Kincaid to testify that Dukhovich tried to hire him to assassinate a political rival, but in the process Kincaid witnessed Dukhovich carry out a mass execution, and uploaded photos of the massacre to a secret FTP site that he provides to the court.
