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.

A fantastic action film. It has several great scenes, and Antonio Banderas is a great villain. Sly is good as always. This is a very smart action film.

Actually quite a good movie despite the review it gets. It's non stop, always a game of cat and mouse where the opponent could be around any corner. The acting, in the case of Miguel, was good, he added a tense and eerie mood to the film as a whole. But as we know the other actors in the movie don't excel in that word, but play their roles well. Robert just wants out of the job, but as more and more money is offered for different jobs, he gives in an keeps doing that 'one last job'. Why that girl Electra decided to tag along with him for the whole job, and the movie makes no sense, just as the flight attendant does with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando. She's just along for the ride, scared, gets into trouble, and could have been removed from the majority of it. The action is pretty decent and overall enjoyable. It's far fetched many times, but that's to be expected. The gunshots are almost all that cheesy silenced sound we are used to heading, and is kinds lame and annoying after a while. The ending takes forever but isn't bad, it actually ends quite well I think and we get what is expected of course. Overall good movie, classic, well paced with decent action and standoffs.

Stallone, Antonio Banderas, and Julianne Moore make one hell of an entertaining action movie with thrill after thrill after thrill.

Assassins is a action flick directed by Richard Donner and written by the Wachowski Brothers. Despite the names attached, the movie really has very little to hang its hat on. The screenplay is more confusing that interesting, and it is difficult to care about any of the characters. Despite some decent action scenes, the film in between is quite droll. Assassins could have been great, but instead was a waste of the assembled talent.

Very good movie. Assassins is a stylish, funny, action-packed thriller that feels a little overlong at times, has sort of a poor script, but good performances from its two leads, especially Banderas.

Banderas's campy over the top assassin can't help take the stench off this corpse.....why go with a wonderful actress like Moore then give her an empty character,

Julianne Moore is very good.

The first few times I watched this I was disgusted, but now I don't find it too misleading.

It's quite thrilling from start to end and leaves the audience thinking the whole way through what will happen next. It's not guaranteed 100% predictable.

The following is about two professional hitmen AKA 'assassins', who are paid an exceedingly large amount of money to annihilate specific targets.
The fun comes when they're both assigned to cap off one another, as instructed from their contractors. Their contractors aren't too be seen nor have the assassins met them personally.

The performances of Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas and Julianne Moore are superb. Stallone has finally landed another role to much his stubborn and lethal portrayal of the war veteran 'John Rambo' and 'Jimmy Bobo' (the part he played in 'Bullet to the Head'). Banderas also delivered a fine performance as the anti-hero of the story. It's an amazing twist what the two lead characters: Robert Rath (Stallone) and Miguel Bain (Banderas) have in common, and you're completely unaware of which one is more lethal and with the best advantage of killing the other. It's totally thrilling.

It's definitely one of Stallone's finest roles to compete with Rambo, Bobo and even Marion 'Cobra' Cobretti ( from 'Cobra'), so it's hugely recommendable and fine addition to Stallone's list of films.

Assassins starts off promisingly but falls off the wheels due to inept characters and quite a boring story

I like this movie. A young Antonio Banderas in his sexy, bad boy heyday. Sylvester Stallone towards the end of his prime. The action was entertaining. The plot...not so much. Still, a decent movie to watch.
