Routine thriller with Sylvester Stallone as a hit man locked on to the idea of retiring when a new kid on the block (Antonio Banderas) decides to keep him in the game. This time, unfortunately, Sly is pushed into playing the role of prey instead of predator.

Julianne Moore plays the technology expert who gives him a hand; her character is probably the only one in the whole film with any life to it. The rest of it plays out like director Richard Donner making a less-impressive Lethal Weapon clone.
