Hidden Assassin (1995)

Hidden Assassin is a 1995 independent action film starring Dolph Lundgren, John Ashton and Maruschka Detmers directed by Ted Kotcheff, whose previous works include First Blood and Uncommon Valor. Released theatrically in most European markets as "The Shooter," the film was retitled when it was purchased by Miramax for an American home video release. Originally due to be filmed in Paris, filming was shifted to Prague, partly for cost reasons. There are two versions, a 89 minute American edit, and a 104 minute international edit.
