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

  1. Terrible acting, save for James Woods.
  2. Bad bordering on nonsensical plot.
  3. Overwrought action scenes.
  4. Any attempts at eroticism are undercut by having Stallone naked.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Good supporting cast, specially James Woods, who provides some of the few entertaining moments.
  2. 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.
