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

When Rath and Elektra first drive up to the old hotel in the station wagon taxi, after they get out Elektra is heard saying "keep the air on". When they drove up, the windows in the car were open, and both were sweating. They wouldn't have opened the windows if the a/c was on. See more »
There are some touches that makes me think of Matrix in this film. The gunfighting scenes are really good, mostly because they are very silent - the assassins both use silencers, which adds new flavor to a well-used dish. I like that part very much. And Banderas is great to watch as usual. There simply isn't anyone with his mimics and his body language anywhere else. Stallone does a good job too, actually. And Julianne Moore, yeah well - who could say anything bad about her?
Entertaining, fast-moving - and please! Check out that gunfight again.
