Movie Info

Assassin Robert Rath (Sylvester Stallone) arrives at a funeral to kill a prominent mobster, only to witness rival hired gun Miguel Bain (Antonio Banderas) complete the job for him -- with grisly results. Horrified by the murder of innocent bystanders, Rath decides to take one last job and then return to civilian life. But finding his way out of the world of contract killing grows ever more dangerous as Rath falls for his target, Electra (Julianne Moore), and becomes a marked man himself.

Critic Reviews for Assassins

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (42)

  • The action is stilted and infrequent, reduced to indifferent gun play, car chases and one standout explosion when a gas main ignites.

    March 2, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There's so much dead air floating around in this icy-cool thriller that the director, Richard Donner, seems to be trying for an art-house version of his Lethal Weapon series (The 400 Blows to Your Head?).

    September 7, 2011 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • A not-much-fun high-tech actioner.

    March 26, 2009 | Full Review…
  • An unusually serious, almost sombre thriller from the versatile action producer Joel Silver in which Stallone's a jaded assassin haunted by the past but unable to face the future.

    June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
  • Although he lets Assassins run on too long, Mr. Donner gives it a dependably slick big-budget style.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 3/5
  • Noisy, shallow and glibly violent.

Audience Reviews for Assassins

  • Sep 11, 2018
    A not great movie, but one that it's hard to pinpoint exact ways in which it could easily have been improved. A Stallone/Banderas as cat and mouse assassins sounds promising, but in reality this technoir thriller is... Actually kind of boring. Seems like it needs a ground-up re-working to get a story up to the concept of that team, which sounds exhausting.

    As far as first screenplays go, the Wachowski Brothers hit it big time with this one. This movie is very entertaining and has appropriate amount of action and suspense. The action sequences are great and the interactions between Stallone and Banderas excellent. If you're a fan of action films, this one is definitely worth a watch.

    Another under par Stallone action flick, It's not a terrible film it's just the plot gets abit too confusing and the action is far few between, Stallone plays his normal tough guy role, Banderas plays a good villian but it's a film that's nothing new or memorable.

    The film is a missed opportunity and has not grown into a guilty pleasure film after all these years of release. Stallone was not the right choice for the lead, he fits into the crowd as a contract killer like an elephant in your living room. The only thing about this film that is remotely interesting is Banderas, who steals the entire film away from Stallone, not a huge compliment by any means sadly. Richard Donner was not the right director for this screenplay, the original draft sounded much more interesting, Stallone would have killed certain aspects as well. I didn't care for this film when it was first released and time has not been kind to this film. Stallone had weird decisions throughout his career, he had the opportunity to leave a legacy of true iconic status but the action films were to be his undoing. Assassins was not the right character for Stallone, a talented filmmaker in his own right should have known better. This didn't do well at the box office and its easy to see why. 27-06-2018.
