Our Score
Though it doesn't quite come off, this is a surprisingly intelligent spin on the action thriller. Tom Berenger stars as a seasoned marksman on a covert mission to terminate a Panamanian rebel leader. However, he soon discovers he has more than enough on his plate dealing with his twitchy new partner, Billy Zane. The pair's claustrophobic relationship generates plenty of jungle-bound tension and the action set pieces, notably the pair's long-range assassinations, are stylishly and inventively staged by director Luis Llosa, who went on to make the Sylvester Stallone flop, The Specialist.

Summary
