Dull as dishwater revenge thriller starring Stallone and Stone. James Woods breathes some life into the proceedings but he can only do so much.

Laughable action thriller in which Sly and Stone completely fail to ignite any chemistry at all, in amongst a load of pointless explosions and uninteresting plot "twists". James Woods looks like he's enjoying himself a lot more than we are.

A prime example of a promising premise with bad screenplay and decent acting. Ray becomes a freelance hit-man. He answers an ad of May Munro and eventually falls for her. One of many ludicrous scenes were the room being blown off, the set-up of Ned and many more. The dialogue was cheesy, acting from the lead bland and story just fades due to the action and some psychic-like specialist. The Specialist is a dated action film with an all too good superficial hitman.
