Assassins / Cobra / The Specialist (Triple Feature)
Robert Rath (Sylvester Stallone) is the best hit man around, but he wants out. Not so Miguel Bain (Antonio Banderas), a killer who wants to eliminate Rath. Julianne Moore turns up the heat as a hacker swept into the fray. Co-written by the Wachowski brothers (The Matrix) and Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential) and directed by Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon), Assassins plunges you into a world where what counts isn't making the first move, but surviving the last.
Like Sylvester Stallone's Rocky and Rambo, Cobra is an original: Lt. Marion "Cobra" Cobretti, a one-man assault f-rce whose laser-mount submachine gun and pearl-handled Colt .45 spit pure crime-stopping venom. Director George P. Cosmatos (Rambo: First Blood Part II, Tombstone) directs, pitting Cobretti against a merciless serial killer. The trail leads to an army of psychos bent on slashing their way to a "new order" - and killing an inadvertent witness (Brigitte Nielsen). Full-throttle screen excitement doesn't get any better.
May Munro (Sharon Stone) seeks revenge for the death of her parents, and she knows the right man for the job: explosives expert Ray Quick (Sylvester Stallone). They lure the killers and detonate them into ashes, but a vicious mob boss (Rod Steiger), his brash son (Eric Roberts) and a psychotic goon (James Woods) won't go quietly. and the passions shared by the two avengers can't hide an ominous question. Is May falling for Ray. . .or setting him up, too?
