The Specialist | 1994 | R | - 8.8.6

Sharon Stone stars as a woman out for revenge and Sylvester Stallone stars as the bomb expert who helps her.

SEX/NUDITY 8 - Stallone's behind is in full view as are Stone's breasts. Several sex scenes, in bed and in a shower. Scantily clad women dance the calypso, and there are some rather brutal kissing scenes; also some degrading sexual comments are made.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A man is thrown into boiling water, another gets a knife in the chest, a woman is hit in the face and left with a bloody lip. Lots of punching and slamming of bodies into walls and through windows, resulting in bloody faces. Some bodies are set on fire (one man is caught in an explosion and becomes a ball of fire). One man's head is blown off and it flies into an aquarium; another man is blown out of his car (still attached to his seat), three men are blown out of a hotel room, and a truck is blown up with a little girl inside. A man and woman are shot while a child watches.

LANGUAGE 6 - About 25 F-words, several scatological references and many milder obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Murder, government mandated deaths, the mob, loss of parents, betrayal, using sex to get close to someone.

MESSAGE - Yes, revenge is sweet, but murder is still murder.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
