Trivia

There is a deleted scene shown in the theatrical trailer where Antonio Banderas is walking through the graveyard looking for his "mark" and is approached by a gravedigger who asks, "Can I help you?" Banderas says he is looking for someone. The gravedigger asks for the person's name so he can check the plot map. Banderas replies, "He's not dead yet." It can be presumed that Banderas then killed him off-screen and took his uniform, which explains why he is wearing it later in the film. See more »

Goofs

The shape of the tree when viewed from the hotel remains the same even when the scene is viewed in flashback. Presumably there would have been some growth over the years. See more »

Definitely worth checking out!!!
21 April 2006 | by (Canada) – 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.
