Robert Rath is a seasoned hitman who just wants out of the business with no back talk. But, as things go, it ain't so easy. 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

Nicolai Tashlinkov tells Robert Rath that he faked his death back in 1980 because "the Cold War was ending". In reality, the Cold War was not just NOT looking it would be over at that point, but one of its most contentious and dangerous periods of dispute between the U.S. and the Soviet Union began around at that time. Any discussion of when it seemed like the Cold War could even be settling down (let alone completely and permanently ceasing) would be ridiculous before Mikhail Gorbachev became the USSR's top leader, and he didn't do so until March 1985.

Killing a woman, it's not the same as killing a man. You have to pull the trigger a different way.

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.
