There is nothing better to me than hearing Samuel L. Jackson call somebody a muther fucker. I think that is the classic!

The movie is set in Europe and is set around the testimony of hitman Darius Kincaid to put a murderous ruler, Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary Oldman) in jail for genocide. Darius is willing to provide his testimony to see his wife Sonia (Salma Hayek) who is a Dutch prison go free.

Dukhovich is not willing to go to jail and as a result, has his own team of goons assigned to kill Kincaid and anyone who tries to keep him alive. Darius is supposed to be on a forty-six-hour transport to Amsterdam to testify, but the team of Interpol agents assigned to protect his is lead by a rookie, Amelia who is in over her head. After being infiltrated Amelia calls in a favor to ex-boyfriend Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) who is loathing over a client he was supposed to be protecting being killed. Michael thought that Amelia had something to do with his client being killed and that lead to their break-up.

Reynolds and Jackson make a great comedic/action team. Salma Hayek delivers a performance we haven’t seen from her since Everly.

With a soundtrack from the 80’s, action and Samuel L. Jackson muther-fucking all through the movie, you can’t go wrong. I see a sequel for this, and I hope they don’t wait years to do it.

Happy Viewing
