The Specialist: Sharon Stone is May Munro, a beauty with a fatal past: she's sworn death to the mobsters who murdered her parents. To do the job, she recruits ex-CIA explosive experts Ray Quick (Stallone).
Miami grows white-hot as May lures the killers and Ray detonates them into ashes. But a vicious mob boss (Roy Stieger), his brash son (Eric Roberts) and a psychotic hired gun (James Woods) with a lethal grudge against Quick won't go without 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?

Assassins: Robert Rath is the best hitman around, but the code and sense of duty that once were part of his deadly career are lost in a post Cold-War world of freelance guns. He wants out. Not so Miguel Bain, a driven killer who knows how to claim the top spot of his shadowy profession: eliminate Rath.
Director Richard Donner infuses this tale with exciting action rifts plunging you into a world where what counts is not making the first move, but surviving the last.
