Michael Kamen originally composed the score for this film. His score was rejected by director Richard Donner, who felt Kamen's score was heavy, dreary and made the film feel slow. Donner felt the film needed a fast, slick sounding score, but he didn't want to let go of Kamen as the two were close friends and had worked together on many films. Donner even tried to give Kamen a chance to recompose the score, but Kamen had already begun work on Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995) for director John McTiernan. Donner then went to composer Mark Mancina, who provided him with the fast, slick score he wanted for the film. Due to time constraint Mancina couldn't come up with a main theme for the film, as he only had five weeks to produce the score for final approval. The time constraint was caused by the film's original June '95 release date, which was later pushed back to October 1995. See more »
After the funeral shooting scene, when the police arrests Miguel, they just let everybody go, including Robert. This would be highly unlikely since it is a crime scene and they are all witnesses to a murder. They would at least be contained for questioning. See more »

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.
