Two hit-men (Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas) have a deadly rivalry.

Quite a few action movies insult the intelligence, but this one is so idiotic, incomprehensible and interminable that it is clearly based on the assumption that its audience has no intelligence to insult. As a couple of risibly unconvincing rival hit-men, Sylvester Stallone is so inert that he seems to have been replaced by his Madam Tussaud's replica, while Antonio Banderas is so hyper-active that a waxwork replacement would be vastly preferable. Awful - and, unlike Stallone's previous movie, The Specialist, not entertainingly awful.
