Robert Rath is a seasoned hitman who just wants out of the business with no back talk. But, as things go, it ain't so easy. A younger, peppier assassin named Bain is having a field day trying to kill said older assassin. Rath teams up with a computer hacker named Electra to defeat the obsessed Bain. Written by

In the scene just after Bain has shot the Dutch buyers, Electra is seen transferring the files from her laptop. The file sizes vary from 10 megabytes to over 200. This is a mistake, as the capacity of the floppy disk, to which it is being transferred, cannot exceed 1.44 megabytes. Even with compression, it is impossible to write almost 700 megabytes, as is seen on the laptop screen, to such a disk. See more »
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: When Bain has killed one cop and crashed the police car, he uses one of the police sniper rifles to shoot the cops in the car that's driving towards the crash scene, which causes a car crash that kills the cop who was injured and trapped but alive. It appears at first that Bain shot both of the cops who were driving towards him to death, which would make it impossible for the car to have driven that fast over the distance where it would have hit the first car. But while it's clear that Bain's shot at the female cop in the front seat who isn't driving hits her in the head and immediately kills her, the scene doesn't make clear where the cop who was driving got shot (forehead, chin, upper body are possibilities), so it's also unclear if that would have been a fatal wound. Also, Bain wants the trapped cop dead so he can't be a witness, so he could have used his skill to seriously injure the driving cop and then cause the crash which killed all of the cops before he left the area.

Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas star in this great action-thriller. Sylvester Stallone plays Robert Rath, who is supposed to kill this guy at a funeral, but someone beats him to it. He tracks the man and has a nice little talk with him. The other man is another assassin, Miguel Bain (Antonio Banderas). Rath (who is the best assassin there is) gets another assignment worth two million dollars. Eliminate buyers and return girl and disk and he can retire. Bain wants to beat Rath and complete the task first. What follows is a battle between the two assassins. Sylvester Stallone looks sleepy, at one time they show a close-up of his eyes and Julianne Moore's eyes. You can see the difference so easily. Banderas is alive, which is good. The best performance is probably from Julianne Moore who is the girl they have to get the disk from. Special effects are good, as is the ending climax. Overall, it is thrilling, with a fair amount of action and violence.
