Danny Wright (Greg Kinnear) and Julian Noble (Pierce Brosnan) meet at a hotel bar in Mexico City and strike up a conversation. Wright is in Mexico to secure an important business deal, and subsequently a nervous wreck. Julian is there for an unexplained reason, but in a drunken stupor reveals that he is a hit man.
Rather than flee from Julian, Danny befriends him. Noble invites his new pal to a bullfight, and gives him a glimpse how a hit man operates. Underneath Julian's rough exterior is a man looking for a good friend, but how will their lifestyles converge?
The Matador was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. Produced under a $10 million budget, the picture earned $16 million at the box office, deeming it a moderate commercial success.
