 Synopsis:  Two dynamic stars combine firey acton with steamy sensuality in The Specialist. Sharon Stone is May Munro, a beauty with a fatal past. She's sworn death to the mobsters who murdered her arents. To do the job, she recruits ex-CIA explosives expert Ray Quick (Sylvester Stalone).
     Miami grows white-hot as May lures the killers and Ray detonates them into ashes. But a vicious mob boss (Rod Steiger), his brash son (Eric Roberts) and a psychotic hired gun (James Woods) with a lethal grudge against Quick won't go with out a fight. The passion the two avengers share can't hide Ray's ominous question. Is May falling for him...or setting him up, too?
 Other Thoughts:  I found myself waiting for this movie to end. Don't buy it unless you absolutely have to see Sharone Stone naked... Again!
