Trivia

The original screenplay was written "on spec" in 1987 and went through various hands and studios who attempted to produce it. In 1991, Rutger Hauer was attached to direct and star in it for producer Michael Jaffe of Spectacor Entertainment. See more »

Goofs

When Waxman and Clegg are driving after the failed mission, Waxman is driving. When they change seat and Clegg becomes the driver, the tire screeches. This is not possible, considering they are on a gravel/dirt road. See more »

Quotes

Waxman: There's an old saying: just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
Clegg: Yeah. That's not a saying, it's a joke. An OLD joke.
Waxman: Really? I never laughed.

Just one click… and you are dead!
29 June 2006 | by (Yugoslavia) – See all my reviews

He is calm, silent and deadly. His bullet can hit you from distance of 2 kilometers. This time Dolph holds in his hands a new tool of destruction – a sniper. He works as political assassin, but he doesn't want to kill any more. They sent him to his last mission into the great designed building with a girl who is his assistant (Bellman). While they make preparations, we watch many flash-backs related to their common past and targets from many years ago. They don't know that whole this job is just a trap to eliminate them both. Director of "Highlander" and "Shadow", Russell Mulcahy, brought you another hit. Claustophobic, strong and dramatic, this film really makes you think. Dolph also provided you with fantastic action scenes that will take your breath away. Gina Bellman – always pleasant to look at. The film that is going to become an important part of your personal collection.
