Did You Know?

Trivia

For its UK release, Warners considered retitling the film "Day of Reckoning" to avoid confusion with the Bridget Fonda film "The Assassin", which ironically had its title changed from the U.S. moniker Point of No Return (1993). See more »

Goofs

In Elektra's first appearance, she is talking to her cat and blow-drying her hair. The sound of the blow-dryer can be heard, but her hair doesn't move; the blow-dryer is obviously not on. See more »

A No-Brained-But-Fun Ride
10 February 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

In order to really enjoy this movie, you have to put your brain in a freezer for 133 minutes and just refrain from trying analyze anything in here. There are more holes in this story than swiss cheese, as the cliché somewhat goes.

Having said that, however, I did enjoy the action scenes and the by-play between the two assassins - "Robert Rath" (Sylvester Stallone) and "Miguel Bain" (Antonio Banderas) - enough to make it a fun ride. I might even have rated it another star higher had a few things weren't confusing and left unanswered, or Banderas spoke clearer English. Still, it's not bad and for fans of "Sly" and action films, worth a look.
