The Plot: The world’s top protection agent [Reynolds] is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hitmen [Jackson]. The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours.

Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson’s equally notorious wife.
