Synopsis
Following a carefully staged death by fiery explosion years before, Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) had come to believe he’d gotten out of the assassination business. The goal: a life of retirement and anonymity.In this instance, though, Bishop wasn’t able to fool everyone. Someone knows he’s alive, someone who was once very close to Bishop. Ruthless businessman Crain (Sam Hazeldine) needs the services of a contract killer who can make the deaths of his victims look like accidents. As the only individual with inside knowledge about Bishop’s former life, Crain will do whatever it takes in order to get the mechanic to come out of retirement and provide his unique services. Normally, Bishop wouldn’t consider the possibility, since threats to his own being aren’t about to weaken a resolve built up over years of perilous work. This particular nemesis however, knows the one card to play that will spur Bishop to comply with his demands—the safety and the life of an enigmatic woman (Jessica Alba) for whom Bishop has developed feelings. With no other way out, Bishop agrees to return once more to the world he tried so painstakingly to leave behind. This time, he is tasked with the elimination of three unsavory targets protected under intense levels of security, including one of the world’s top arms dealers (Tommy Lee Jones). Bishop must travel the globe to complete his objective for the sake of a woman. If he can determine how these three men are linked, and why his employer wants them eliminated, he might find the edge he needs in turning the tables on a vicious man who for now has the upper hand.
