The Characters

The storyline of the movie revolves in the 24-hour action-packed struggle and adventure of the two main characters: Darius Kincaid (played by Samuel L. Jackson) and Michael Bryce (played by Ryan Reynolds).

Kincaid is a notorious hit man a.k.a. the most dangerous man on the planet. Vladislav Dukhovich (played by Gary Oldman) who’s a cold-blooded Eastern European dictator wants him dead before he can even testify at the International Court of Justice. Will he make it on time?

Other casts like Sonia Kincaid (Darius’ wife played by Salma Hayek) and Amelia Roussel (Michael’s agent-partner and love interest played by Élodie Yung) spiced up the scenes with bits of sweet romance, feistiness, and women power.
