    They take on jobs too risky for even the CIA to handle
    Certificate: 18
    Running Time: 118 mins
    Retail Price: £12.99
    Release Date:

    As steady hands carefully wire a bomb and meticulously set the time to the eerie sounds of children singing in the background, and as the deadly device explodes, rupturing a building into fragments, the cinematic genius of Sam Peckinpah comes startlingly to life. Featuring a first rate cast headed by James Caan and Robert Duvall, this superb action thriller aims at the jugular and rivets you to the screen.

    Elite assassins Mike Locken (James Caan) and George Hansen (Robert Duvall) take on jobs too risky for even the CIA to handle. They`re best friends, superior marksmen, and on the A-list when it comes to killing. But when one high-powered hitman betrays another, the intrigue, the violence and the thrills become more than just a dangerous game of who-kills-whom first... it becomes a very personal war.
