Nothing in it should surprise you, despite the twists the story attempts to take. Formula is formula.

Isn't Sly getting a little long in the Rocky-tooth for this kind of role?

Tedious. Ludicrous. Completely unecessary. And I mean the whole movie, not just Stone and Stallone's naked shower scene.

This movie is a stinker in every way, from the one-dimensional acting to the idiot dialogue to the surprisingly monotonous storyline.

This film perhaps didn't deserve its horrible reputation, but very few people should have to endure watching The Specialist just in order to come to such conclusion.

Ponderous, pretentious and acted with astounding indifference, The Specialist is a big fat bore with a couple of nice explosions. It's too somber to work as camp, and too tedious to work as anything else.
