In honor of Friday's release of The Expendables, we're taking a week-long look at the action films of Sir Sylvester Stallone -- which is to say we're skipping his comedies. Out of respect.

Title: Assassins (1995)

Setting: Seattle, mid-'90s. I know this because I saw the Space Needle and Stallone is wearing tortoise-shell eyeglasses.

Our hero: Burnt-out super-assassin Robert Rath.

Our villain/s: Excitable super-assassin Miguel Bain.

The stakes: It's wrath vs. bane, only spelled wrong! (Also, a pretty young Julianne Moore is involved.)
