Trivia

With the exception of one word, the "Dutch" buyers in the Marriot hotel actually speak German (with accent) instead of Dutch. The one Dutch word is spoken when one of the buyers checks the air duct. He says 'Niks' which is Dutch for 'Nothing'. This makes sense as he sees nothing inside the air duct. The German word would be 'Nichts' See more »

Goofs

(At 1:13:05-1:16:00) Rath originally gets on the Seattle monorail at Westlake Center terminus, makes the exchange at the Seattle Center terminus and gets back on the monorail. He jumps off on to the track buttress by exiting the right side of the train (in correlation with the train's motion). This means that the train is going in the wrong direction as the buttress is on the left side when traveling from Seattle Center to Westlake Center. Further proof is the exterior shot of the monorail heading toward the Space Needle after it resumes operation. See more »

not bad
16 February 2003 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a great action flick. I'm really into this genre of movies. I don't particularly like Sylvester Stallone but he was pretty good in this movie. Julianne Moore was good but I think she would've been better if her role was bigger. But I think Antonio Banderas stole the show. He was so good as the psychopathic assassin. I loved the chase scenes. Especially the scene in the taxi. Miguel Bain's (Banderas) evilness just oozed out of him as this scene played. Robert Rath (Stallone) wanted to kill Bain so bad during this scene. I loved the explosions. I just had a thought though. Whenever Rath blew Bain out of the window and then it showed Bain in the bathtub, shouldn't he have had more wounds than it showed? I don't know. Maybe it was just me. Anyways. This movie had violence but not as much as most movies in this genre does. I thought it had just enough. The ending was pretty good. It seemed like Bain just would not die. An invincible villain! How many times have you seen that in these kinds of movies? Well, I don't have much more to say about this film except I really enjoyed it and thanks for reading my review! Bye!
