Description of The Specialist (1994)

Product Description~The pasts and futures of a retired explosives expert and a revenge-obsessed beauty become dangerously intertwined in this sensual action thriller. Studio: Warner Home Video Release Date: 05/31/2005 Starring: Sylvester Stallone James Woods Run time: 110 minutes Rating: R Director: Luis Llosa| awful enough to qualify as someone's guilty pleasure, this convoluted thriller was supposed to cash in on the supposedly sexy teaming of Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone (then hot from her ample exposure in Basic Instinct), but their naked groping in a shower provides one of the film's unintentionally funny highlights. Ray Quick (Stallone) is a former CIA bomb expert whose former colleague (James Woods) is now in cahoots with a Miami drug cartel led by kingpin Joe Leon (Rod Steiger), who chews the scenery while his son Tomas (Eric Roberts) proceeds with a greedy hidden agenda. May Munro (Stone) hires Quick to kill off Roberts. The Specialist, featuring lots of explosions and redeemed by a dandy role for James Woods, is best suited for ardent Stallone and Stone fans. --Jeff Shannon|
