The latest such request comes from May Munro (Creator/SharonStone), a young woman who has an old grievance. While still underage, she witnesses the murders of both her parents by organized crime figures. Only because her father was a witness in some case. She was hiding in the closet and recognized one of the killers, Tomas Leon (Creator/EricRoberts). He happens to be the only son and heir to a mob boss. Years later, she located him, seduced him and infiltrated his organization. Now she needs a partner to help assassinate him and hopefully bring the organization down as well. That Ned is part of said organization is added incentive for Ray.

* KickTheDog: Supposedly the killing of the young girl at the beginning. Because aborting missions and wait for another opportunity sounds like a feasible option.

The film was a box office hit, earning $170,362,582 in the worldwide market. Somewhat unexpected because Stallone had few major hits in the 1990s. The critics hated the film, pointing to unlikely situations and painful dialogues. At least James Berardinelli noted that the reason people liked it was because of having two great attractions: [[MrFanservice Sylvester Stallone's biceps]] and [[MsFanservice Sharon Stone's breasts]].
