In the first film, bodyguard Michael Bryce had to protect a criminal Darius Kincaid on his way to court.

In the upcoming, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, Michael, and Darius reunite to save Darius’s wife, Sonia, from new threats.

The film was a comic entertainment but not anything above that. It was a light-hearted film that could have been a failure if the cast was any different.
