Well...this movie certainly didn't show what potential The Wachowskis would eventually have when they went on to direct The Matrix in 1999. Mainly because, according to them, their script was changed and attempted to cover up their involvement with the movie but failed. Which makes it super convenient that everyone forgot this movie existed, the siblings were unknowns at the time and that they're very likely to deny that this movie was a thing they contributed to 22 years ago. It had decent action sequences, serviceable performances from Stallone and Banderas and the amusement of having Julianne Moore say "Howdy" before shooting a guy. Yet I always felt that the film should've been better. I was a bit bored throughout and I actually prefer Jupiter Ascending over this movie. Yes, the same Jupiter Ascending movie that caused The Wachowskis to be banished from the world of theatrically released movies. At least that one actually tried. Assassins may please the least demanding viewer and Sylvester Stallone diehards but for me, it was a mostly below-average movie that could've been a lot better had Warner Bros. used The Wachowskis' original script.
