Since faking his own death (at the end of the previous film), Arthur Bishop has been living quietly in Rio de Janeiro under the name Santos. He is approached by a courier, Renee Tran, who knows his true identity and explains that her employer wishes Bishop to kill three targets and stage their deaths as accidents. Bishop escapes, eluding her and her mercenaries and fleeing to Thailand. He takes shelter at the resort island beach house of his friend, Mei, and learns that Tran is working for Riah Crain.

Some time later, a bruised woman, Gina Thornton, approaches Mei for first aid before returning to a boat anchored nearby. Mei sees her being beaten by a man aboard the boat and alerts Bishop. Together, they rescue Thornton, but in the scuffle, the man’s head hits a bollard and he dies. Bishop searches, unsuccessfully, for evidence of the man’s identity, then sets the boat ablaze. While Mei tends to Thornton’s injuries, Bishop finds that Thornton is also connected to Crain, and concludes that Crain anticipated Bishop would become romantic with her: Crain would then kidnap her to make Bishop take the assassination jobs. On being charged with his theory, Thornton reveals that Crain had threatened the children’s shelter in Cambodia that she runs unless she participated. Over the next few days, Bishop gets to know Thornton better and they fall in love. As expected, however, Crain’s mercenaries arrive and abduct them.
Crain keeps Thornton hostage to ensure Bishop completes the assassinations. The first target is a warlord named Krill, held in a Malaysian prison. Bishop gets himself imprisoned, and gains Krill’s trust by killing a man who attempts to kill him. Bishop then kills Krill himself and escapes with the help of Crain’s operatives. The next target is Adrian Cook, a Sydney-based billionaire and former trafficker of underage sex workers.
