Editorial Reviews

Robert Roth (Sylvester Stallone) is the best hitman around but the code and sense of duty once part of his deadly career are lost in a post-Cold War world of free-lance guns. He wants out. Not so Miguel Bain (Antonio Banderas), a driven killer who knows how to claim the top spot of his shadowy profession: eliminate Roth. Julianne Moore turns up the heat as a wily hacker swept into the duo’s running battle. Co-written by the Wachowski Brothers (The Matrix) and Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential) and directed by Richard Donner (the Lethal Weapon series), this awesome action tale plunges you into a world where what counts isn’t making the first move, but surviving the last.

He battles all over the landscape against his new competitor Antonio Banderas. A woman comes into possesion of an article that the bad guys want. She then becomes a target for Banderas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action start to finish May 31, 2007
Format:DVD
When I put this DVD in, and hit play, action started. The whole way through the 2 hour movie, there is action non stop, clear up to the end in the "No Goodbyes" scene. This is a great movie. My favorite part was in the taxi when Robert Rath (Stallone) And Miguel Bain (Banderas) meet.

If youre a fan of either Banderas or Stallone, then I strongly suggest this movie to you.

4.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT BLU RAY TRANSFER! December 17, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Pleased to inform since the release of Laser Disc in mid nineties this is the only worthy transfer. The colours and sound are amazing. Great bargain if you're a Stallone fan.

A good blu ray movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Movie Where You Can Feel The Heat Coming Of The Screen! September 6, 2006
By Thor
Format:DVD
Assassins is a great action thriller starring Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas.

Richard Donner, the director of the Lethal Weapon Films, has done a fantastic job as always, creating a world with characters that you won't forget that easy.

Sylvester Stallone does a good job as a hitman who doesn't wanna kill anymore, but still gets new offers he doesn't wanna refuse. While Stallone's character is on the job, a rivale pops up: Antonio Banderas. Now Banderas is perfectly cast as the triggerhappy killer who only wants one thing: being number 1 in the hitman world. For that he has to kill Stallone's character.

Not the most original story in the world, but that doesn't matter: it's pure entertainment and it gives a lot of thrilling moments and action sequences.

From the moment the two characters meet in some of the most beautiful locations and thrilling situations, the heat is on. Gunfire, explosions, sweat, thrilling conversations between the two: the heat will come out of your tv set! The atmosphere that is hanging around in this film is truely fantastic.

The action has been filmed in a fantastic and professional way and it will keep you on the edge of your seat. There are a few flaws here and there, and a few things that you musn't take to seriously, but because of the fantastic speed and feel of the film, it won't spiol the fun for even one moment!

This film is truely underrated by the media, so my suggestion is: ignore the media and watch this thriller, cause it will entertain you!

If you are a fan of Stallone, Banderas, Richard Donner's work, or just in the mood for some fun action entertainment, I would highly recommend this film!

Good popcorn entertainment with a lot of thrills and chills.

So sit back, relax, put your feet up and enjoy watching this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, great actors September 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I love this movie, but I admit I'm a little turned off by the Stallone action genre. I'm glad I did watch it. I love Electra, she's the best. A woman can be a strong character, she doesn't do what he tells her, until she trusts him. The scene in which Stallone spills his guts about liking her is even more compelling because she's not around to hear it. Great job by Antonio, he's just beautiful enough to be scary. Great movie!!

Format:DVD
Assassins is a cool action drama directed by Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon), and starring Sylvester Stallone (Rocky), Antonio Banderas (Mask Of Zorro), and Julianne Moore (Hannibal).

Stallone plays our anti-hero Robert Rath, a professional hitman who is at the top of his game but getting tired of the whole thing and wants out. Before he can make such a decision, his employer whom he doesn't see but recieves jobs from on the computer assigns him to retire one more mark, a computer hacker known as Electra, played by Moore. The problem that Rath is about to encounter is Miguel Bain, played remarkably by Banderas, another professional hitman who's out to get the same mark and kill Rath to become number one. The film turns into a cat and mouse game between Rath and Bain.

Director Donner succeeds in focusing less on the action, but more on the characters themselves and the interactions between them. There is no major body count nor is there the sound of gunshots or machine guns (all the guns in the film are silenced), and nor are there that many explosions, except for the scene where Bain gets blown out of a kitchen window.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stallone's Best December 22, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
I personally think this was one of Sly's best movies, even better than the Rocky series.
Stallone plays the part of a man named Robert Rath who has been an assassin for over fifteen years. His conscience is finally cathing up to him and he wants out of the business. Before he retires he decides to do one last hit worth $20 million, enough money to live comfortably for the rest of his life.
Banderas plays the part of Miguel Bain, a young, very ambitious, ruthless assassin who is determined to be the world's best contract killer. The only thing standing in his way is Stallone.
Moore plays the part of the woman who Stallone was supposed to assassinate, but instead developed strong feelings for.
The three of them combine to make one of the best movie's of 1995 with plenty of action, drama, and a semi-love story. I highly recommend it.
