Plot

After faking his death, Arthur Bishop has been living quietly in Rio de Janeiro with the name Santos. He is approached by a woman who states that her employer wishes for Bishop to to kill three targets and stage them as accidents. Bishop takes a picture of her and fights off her mercenaries before escaping. Bishop goes to Thailand and takes shelter at the beach house of his friend, Mae. He investigates the woman and learns that her employer is a man named Riah Crain.

A woman named Gina Thorne arrives at the shore. At night, Mae notices Thorne being attacked in her boat. The former convinces Bishop to save the latter. He kills the attacker before bringing Thorne back to the shore. Bishop learns that she is working for Crain and confronts her, who reveals that she was working in a children shelter in Cambodia and Crain threatened those children and forced her to arrive at Bishop"?s location. Bishop deduces that Crain"?s plan was to make him fall for her before she is kidnapped and thus Bishop will be forced to accept the mission. Later, Bishop notices Crain"?s operatives watching him and gets intimate with Thorne. He reveals to her that he and Crain were sold to a gangster when they were orphan children. They were trained as warriors until Bishop escaped. Bishop and Thorne end up having sex before they are both abducted the next morning. Bishop is brought to Crain, who gives the identities of the three targets.

The first target is a warlord named Krill, who is incarcerated in a Malaysian prison. Bishop travels to Malaysia and gets himself imprisoned to access Krill. Bishop gains Krill"?s trust by killing a man already planning on killing Krill. Bishop meets with Krill inside his little hut, where the former kills the latter and escapes the prison with the help of Crain's operatives.

Bishop is informed that he only has 36 hours to kill the next target, Adrian Cook, who runs an underage trafficking ring in Sydney, Australia. Cook goes for a swim in his glass pool outside his high-rise apartment. Bishop breaks the glass, causing the water to spill out with Cook plummeting to his death. Once again, Bishop makes a clean getaway.

Bishop finds the boat Thorne is held and attempts to save her, but fails. He is informed that he has 24 hours to kill the last target, Max Adams, who is an arms dealer in Bulgaria. Adams and Bishop decide to work together against Crain. Bishop fakes Adams"? death and tells Crain that the job is done. They arrange a meeting; but Crain is revealed to be planning to have Bishop killed.

Bishop kills Crain"?s men before heading toward Crain's boat, where he engages more mercenaries before getting to Crain. He finds Thorne, and they discover that Crain has the boat rigged to explode. Bishop puts her in a chamber to let her escape and engages Crain. The former runs away moments before the boat explodes, killing Crain. Thorne is told that there have been no survivors.

Thorne returns to Cambodia to continue her work. She is surprised when Bishop shows up. The last scene shows Adams reviewing security footage, which shows Bishop escaping in another chamber. Adams deletes the video to fake Bishop's death once more.
