Trivia

With the exception of one word, the "Dutch" buyers in the Marriot hotel actually speak German (with accent) instead of Dutch. The one Dutch word is spoken when one of the buyers checks the air duct. He says 'Niks' which is Dutch for 'Nothing'. This makes sense as he sees nothing inside the air duct. The German word would be 'Nichts'. See more »

Goofs

After the cemetery gun battle, the police arrest Miguel but follow no other procedures. Since a murder was committed, which makes the cemetery a crime scene, they should at least detain witnesses, including Rath, for questioning. See more »

Quotes

Miguel Bain: Ooh, they look pissed, huh?

Nice touch
21 January 2000 | by Rammstein-2See all my reviews

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.
