This film opens with a big fat close-up of a sweaty prisoner with a fly (on a string) crawling on his face. The prisoner quickly pops the fly in his mouth and spits it out. Then he leeringly laughs about it to the prisoner next door. Nope. This is not a bad undiscovered Sergio Leone spaghetti western. Rather it is the opening shot Deran Sarafin's Gunmen -- a brainless action film without an original thought in its head. Christopher Lambert is the fly-eater, a man named Dani Servigo, the brother

Sarafian is an unpretentious, easy-to-please director, with an eye for quirky character detail and a dab hand at the macho stuff.
Gunmen, at the very least, does moviegoers the favor of instantly revealing how stupid and cheesy it is, thus sparing us the elevated expectations of fun.
Gunmen is a movie without plan, inspiration or originality - and to that list I would add coherence, except that I am not sure this movie would place much value on a plot that hangs together.
Though constrained by limited funds, it delivers the action goods with surprising style and boasts a better than average cast.
Truly awful, though I'll never get tired of Patrick Stewart a'slummin'.
Should be a whole lot of fun, but it really isn't -- Patrick Stewart using profanity is the highlight.
Standard actioner with a "what were they thinking?" acting ensemble.
