Audience Reviews for The Specialist

    A bomber makes for about as heroic a protagonist as you might expect. There is no reason to put yourself through the plodding pretentiousness of The Specialist unless you, like I was, are on some sort of quest to watch the entire 80s-90s Stallone filography.

    A solid underrated Stallone flick with some cool explosions so what's not to enjoy?, Ok the acting and on screen chemistry with Stone and Stallone wasn't great but you don't go into a Stallone film expecting it to have Oscar winning acting, Having said that James Woods played a pretty good villain but you watch these films to enjoy yourself and that's what you get with this film, It's a slow burner but soon picks up, Worth watching for any Stallone fan.

    Not a great movie, but it's just too much fun not to enjoy on some level. You've got Sly as a bomb expert who finds a ton of different ways to blow you up. Sharon Stone adds to the mix mostly as eye candy, but she's actually a really good character too. Everyone else in the cast is pretty much star-studded as well, including Eric Roberts, Rod Steiger and James Woods. You pretty much know what type of movie it is before you put it in, so you'll either love it or hate it.

    "Specialist" hitman (Stallone) teams up with a beautiful woman (Sharon Stone) who wants him to eliminate three gangsters who murdered her parents. James Woods makes a terrific villain and is great as Stallone's former partner turned enemy, he was really good at being bad while Stallone gets rid of his enemies using bombs instead of guns. Eric Roberts was excellent as the vicious and narcissistic son of a drug baron (Rod Steiger). With loads of big explosions and fight scenes combined with an erotic shower scène (well Sharon Stone is in it and we expect that lol), it's certainly worth a one time watch.
