The Specialist is a 1994 American thriller spy film directed by Luis Llosa, starring Sylvester Stallone, Sharon Stone, and James Woods. It is loosely based on The Specialist series of novels by John Shirley.
A woman entices a bomb expert she's involved with into destroying the mafia that killed her family.
Why It Sucks
- Terrible acting, save for James Woods.
- Bad bordering on nonsensical plot.
- Overwrought action scenes.
- Any attempts at eroticism are undercut by having Stallone naked.
- Good supporting cast, specially James Woods, who provides some of the few entertaining moments.
- Decent soundtrack from the late John Barry.
- Steven Seagal was offered the chance to star in and direct this film, but he wanted $9 million. The studio didn't want to pay Seagal that much, so they offered it to Stallone instead.
