Teddy Jackson (Kevin Hart) is a bumbling entrepreneur who can’t make any of his ideas work. Taking his wife on a vacation getaway, Teddy ends up at the wrong Airbnb and is mistaken for a vicious assassin known as "The Man From Toronto.” When the real assassin (Woody Harrelson) arrives, the two realize that they have to work together to escape tenacious FBI agents, bloodthirsty hired killers and a handler (Ellen Barkin) who wants her money back. (Gary Reber)

Special features include six deleted scenes (HD 07:26), upfront previews and a Movies Anywhere digital copy.

The 2.39:1 1080p picture, reviewed on a VIZIO Quantum X P85QX-JI UHD/HDR display, was photographed digitally in anamorphic Panavision® using the Arri Alexa Mini and Sony CineAlta Venice camera system and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture's appearance is natural with accurate and realistic hues. Colors are naturally hued with accurate flesh tones. The settings are varied with realism throughout, even the setting in Porto Rico with a far more colorful canvas. Contrast is excellent. Black levels are deep. Shadows are revealing. White levels appear balanced and not exaggerated. Resolution is generally good with fine detail exhibited in facial features such as skin pores, lines, beards and hair, Clothing is generally realistic. Object texture is a bit soft though. This is a generally a realistic looking picture that is visually satisfying. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is loudly dynamic with exciting sound effects transients in the form of powerful gun shots, massive explosions and stunt effects enhanced with powerful deep bass support during action sequences. Atmospherics are realistic. Dialogue is intelligible but spatial integration is limited with ADR prevalent. The music is nicely recorded and enveloping with a wide and deep soundstage and aggressive extension to the surrounds. Surrounds are pleasantly aggressive and deliver a good sense of dimensionality. This is an entertaining holosonic® soundtrack that fans of Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson will enjoy. (Gary Reber)
