This movie is about the "3 S's" of assassination - suits, sunglasses and silencers. It is extremely cliché, but it works somehow since everyone seems to be perfect in their roles. Banderas is a suave up and coming assassin who is desperate to become #1. Stallone is an aging "good guy" assassin who is defending his title, while promising to do "one last job" before retiring. He has a tragic past of having had to assassinate a former colleague and must deal with betrayal, romance, and a chess playing mastermind. Even though there is no real humor in the film, it is funny because it is such an archetypical assassin movie. The acting and action are great as well.

Another ridiculous Stallone vehicle in which he lumbers through some reasonably well handled set pieces, directed as it was by Richard Donner of Superman and Lethal Weapon fame, but it gets increasingly ludicrous and Banderas is just plain awful.

Meh - about as standard an action film as you can find. Both Stallone and Banderas don't appear to have their heart in this project. Unless you're feeling desperate, I suggest getting your action fix on a much more exciting film.
