Abstract:

Robert Rath (Stallone), a professional hit man, does his business via the electronic superhighway, making contact by fax modem and collecting his money by wire transfer. He has been given a contract to kill crime boss Alan Branch, vicious rival hit man Miguel Bain (Banderas) who stole the contract and killed Branch. Bain is as ruthless as Robert is principled. Robert won't fire randomly into a crowd, for fear of killing innocent bystanders. Bain treats civilians like they're the next best thing to body armor. Robert is by now getting tired of killing people, so he wants to retire. But he decides to take one more job, the target being a Seattle woman named Electra, who is a surveillance expert and information thief who will be selling a floppy disk of stolen data to a four of Dutch buyers. Before Robert can do anything, Bain shows up and kills the Dutchmen. Robert, who has the disk, declares himself retired and becomes Electra's protector because Bain is determined to kill Robert and Electra and get the disk.
