Did You Know?


Kevin Bacon, Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes were considered for the role of Miguel Bain. 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.

Definitely worth checking out!!!
21 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

This movie is action packed and definitely worth watching for any fan of action movies. I'm surprised at the low rating it's has so far on IMDb.

Two of my favorite actors are in the movie, Sylvester Stalone and Antonio Banderas. I just found out the movie is written by the same people who did the Matrix and I can see how that is so. Any movie with Banderas is usually good, and this is no exception. :)

If anyone likes sniper movies like Enemy at the Gates or Leon the Professional, this is definitely a movie worth checking out. You won't regret it.
