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

For its UK release, Warners considered retitling the film "Day of Reckoning" to avoid confusion with the Bridget Fonda's film "The Assassin", which ironically had its title changed from the US moniker Point of No Return (1993). See more »
Electra parks the Mustang up close to a chain link fence and jumps out, slowing Rath's pursuit. This occurs in bright sunlight. Barely a minute later, Rath returns to the car with Electra's cat, the car and fence are in the shade of a building. See more »

Ooh, they look pissed, huh?
They get that way when you kill four of them.

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!
