It's quite the achievement to not be called Stallone and be the worst actor in a Stallone movie. Kudos to Antonio Banderas. Julianne Moore looks like she is wondering what on earth she did wrong to wind up on this set.

Yes it's a little long and kinda corny at times but this movie is a lot of fun. Antonio Banderas hams it up to the hilt but is very effective. Stallone...well, he's Stallone being Stallone. Frankly I'm astonished by the low scores from critics. It may not be a Richard Donner classic but it's still a well made, entertaining, action packed ride throughout.

Ugh, awful movie from 2 big hitters
Banderas is pathetic and it still surprises me Richard'Lethal Weapon'Donner directed this

1 of only 3 movies with Julianne Moore that I LOVE. She is good in this...perhaps before her ego kicked in. Stallone is Stellar and Banderas is a REAL BAD ARSE

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.

There are about four characters in this movie and one of them is a an old computer with a floppy drive that doesn't talk. Come on Holywood! Stallone and Banderas make an action movie directed by Ricahrd Donner, and it's set in Seattle and it sucks this bad!? Any three of those names has made movies with wit and timing and great action, and they came together to make this disaster that is too realistic to be fun and to boring to be a good fantasy. There are a handful of good action scenes, and it is always cool when a movie takes place in your hometown, but this isn't really worth more than one or two viewings.

Does anyone know where you can get the harmonica heavy version of Rolling Stones "Like a Rolling Stone"??? It plays in the closing credits.

A fascinating and well played look at the world of hitmen.

Awful film. Donner who can be brilliant at times, phones this one in with a script akin to a bad tv cable flick.

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.
