The table that Bain picks up and shields himself with when the apartment explodes disappears after the first shot. Also, in later scenes his hands (especially his fingertips) appear uninjured even though they were exposed to the damaging effects of the explosion. See more »

A No-Brained-But-Fun Ride
10 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In order to really enjoy this movie, you have to put your brain in a freezer for 133 minutes and just refrain from trying analyze anything in here. There are more holes in this story than swiss cheese, as the cliché somewhat goes.

Having said that, however, I did enjoy the action scenes and the by-play between the two assassins - "Robert Rath" (Sylvester Stallone) and "Miguel Bain" (Antonio Banderas) - enough to make it a fun ride. I might even have rated it another star higher had a few things weren't confusing and left unanswered, or Banderas spoke clearer English. Still, it's not bad and for fans of "Sly" and action films, worth a look.
