Just 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Well first i'll go over the "plot". Stallone plays Ray Quick a demolitions expert who is hired be Sharon Stone to kill a mob family that she has infultrated. The family killed her family years ago (just how many times are we going to have to have this same plot). Eric Roberts plays Stone's boyfriend/mob bosses son/patsy. Rod Steiger plays the family monarch and resident bad guy. James Woods is Ned Trent a crooked cop who Quick had issues with when they were both in the army.
This movie opens up in the middle and tries to tell the story in both flashbacks and present time format. All this dose is give you a real lost feeling right off the bat. All the actors are heavy hitters with Oscar nominations to thier credit but this is one of the missteps that even the best make. The only bright spot in this entire mess is Woods. Even with a bad script and foolish lines he still, somwhow, pulls the role off with flair and humor that, unlike the rest of the movie, was intended. This movie should just be forgotten as quickly as possable...
Wayyyy too much narcisim for one boy to take!!!
Holey Moley!!! AND it had Sharon Stone AND the brilliant James Woods to boot!!!
Plus Ms Stone... was showing her wares... although if it were a hot summer night in my house... I'd rather you didn't put your thong covered botty on my leather suite - Thank you very much.... Yech.... that's gonna leave a sweat mark!?!
And the water the two of you wasted in that shower scene getting into just the right pose?
Tut, tut!!! Think of the enviroment!!!
HEY: Does body oil solidify and block the drains like chip fat does???
All joking aside now:
I was very dissappointed in the 3 of you!!!
Cos you all had farrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr more going for you than this!!!
Stallone where was the humility of Rocky or even Demolition Man?
Sharon what happened to the shy, repressed sexuality of Sliver???
What was it again that I liked you in Mr Woods??? Been a while...

I bought this disc as a replacement for my VHS copy. The colour and sound are great - which is what one would expect from a bluray disc. Read morePublished on July 8 2014 by Stephen G. Adams

Bon p'tit film d'action si on n'a pas trop d'attentes. Quelques longueurs, mais l'histoire se tient dans l'ensemble. Read morePublished on Sept. 24 2012 by P. Loranger
